Kyrie Irving is back, and man, thats just great.
Dion Waiters is not, and man, that sort of stinks.
After all, Waiters is the Cavs second-leading scorer, a developing rookie, a guy who scores 20 a game when the Cavs win. OK, thats only been four (out of 21) times, but still.
The Cavs need Waiters, Waiters needs playing time, and the Lakers are in town. And guess who Waiters wouldve been matched up against? Yeah, that guy. Kobe Bryant. The star whos in his 17th season, has won five rings, and at 34, is having one of his best individual seasons ever.
(As for the Lakers as a team, well, we know that story of early drama and untapped chemistry. But lets give a while. Sound good? Great.)
Back to Waiters.
Hes missed four games with a sprained ankle. Well, at least everyone thought it was a sprained ankle. Turns out it was a sprained ankle and a bruise to the ankle bone.
That makes things, oh, just a bit more complicated. Or a lot more.
I think Dions still a little way...
