It’s well-known that NBA rookies usually have a tough go at it in the locker room. Veterans commonly like to pick on the young guys, and may make them do things like carry their bags, sing in public etc. However, when you add the usual rookie hazing with April Fool’s day, you get things like this happening to Cleveland Cavaliers rookie guard Dion Waiters. Waiters, who has been a pleasant surprise in his rookie campaign after leaving Syracuse early, found his car covered in…popcorn.

Like any great prank, there are pictures to prove it courtesy of USA Today Sports.

That’s just dirty. Maybe this is Waiter’s teammates telling him to pick and pop more…

Byron Scott falls victim to generational gap, frustration
