There are good rookie hazing methods and then there are bad ones. Fortunately, the one used by Cleveland Cavaliers coach Byron Scott on Wednesday was of the good variety.According to this story by ESPN, Scott handed out baby dolls and pink strollers to each one of his rookies -- Dion Waiters, Tyler Zeller, & Kevin Jones -- before Wednesday's loss to the Chicago Bulls. Despite the guaranteed embarrassment that having to pack around such items may be, it seems as though the three are being good sports about the whole thing."(Scott) didn't tell us (why)," Zeller said. "He just had them out there for us. It's just something you've got to do as a rookie. It's a rite of passage."As part of the initiation, the rookies must bring their baby dolls' diapers bags along with them on the road. No word yet on whether or not this will be a season-long thing."Apparently you've got to carry milk and Pampers in this little pink bag," Jones said. "You've got to make sure it's always full with that (stuff) and bring it in and out of the arena with you, and you get in trouble if you don't have it with you."The Cleveland newbies were also forced to carry pink backpacks with them earlier in the season.
