The last time we checked in with our favorite Uncle, he was playing in a pick-up game in New Jersey, yelling at his teammates for turning the ball over. On Friday, the unhappy (still a) Cav was in Miami, teaming up with Hassan Whiteside and going against John Wall (I’m still waiting on those #JohnWallChallenge submission from everybody who said “that’s easy.”) in a pick-up game that also featured Jeff Green and Marcus Smart.
As for those Kyrie to Miami rumors, here’s what Dion Waiters recently had to say about a possible reunion with Irving.
“It would help,” Waiters said of adding Irving to HipHopSince1987. “I’m not against that. Just know there’s an alpha male over there too in myself. I think that’s my biggest thing with everybody saying, ‘Oh, he got irrational confidence.’ Man, like I tell everybody, if I can make it from here, I can make it from anywhere. My mom got shot. My dad got shot. C’mon, bro, there ain’t nothing I haven’t seen. Why not? I need that confidence to get through. Every day I need that confidence to get by. It ain’t got nothin’ to do with ball. It’s who I am. It was instilled in me, man. But you know there’s an alpha male over there already. If you come down, we can boogie together.”
