After taking on the challenge and helping the Lakers win their first title after Kobe Bryant, Dion Waiters is now considering retiring from his career.
During a recent Instagram Live session, Waiters showed off his championship ring while discussing his future.
"You think I'm playing. I thought about it - about retirement," said the waiter. "It's politics for me. Technically we know what's going on. I just can't do politics, man. We don't walk across the water. I'll retire first."
Waiter is only 29 years old and was selected as a fourth choice by the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2012. He was brought to Oklahoma City by the Cavs in 2015 before later signing with the Heat as a free agent. The waitress days in Miami were marked by problematic injuries and extrajudicial antics. This includes a THC gum incident that forced him to miss a game against the Lakers last season because the candy terrified him.
Even so, Miami was able to broker a deal for waiters who sent him to the Grizzlies. He was picked up by Memphis before being picked up by the Lakers. Although he only saw limited season, his stint with the Lakers served as a full circle moment. The waiters competed against his former team in the final and won. However, the Lakers decided not to renew his contract this off-season and focus on major signings. Now that his freelance agency is running out of buzz, Waiters thinks this is the perfect site to end this chapter of his life.
