Hjust ace Dion Waiters was proclaimed champion of the NBA with the Lakers in the Orlando Bubble. With a residual participation in the achievement of the championship, the shooting guard had his last chance in the NBA after eight seasons marked by irregularity and controversy.

The player had to be treated upon landing in Los Angeles and could not even go to the Staples Center with the rest of the team. Waiters received a 10-game penalty without a job and salary, which meant he lost nearly two million dollars. “I was wrong and I am totally responsible. I’m sorry because I gave everyone a hard time.”
That incident marked the beginning of the end for Waiters, whose ability to play in the NBA and his work ethic were questioned. The escort disappeared from the radar until now that he has posted a post on Instagram in which his incredible physical transformation is seen accompanied by a message in which he tells about everything that has happened during the last year.

But all human beings go through a lot of shit. The boy on the right came back to reality and understood who he was and still is, “said in the post a player for whom fans are asking for a new opportunity in an NBA in which he averaged 13.1 points and 2.8 assists in 28.2 minutes in 419 league games.
