  1. Smh…. Cavs don’t know how to draft…. Thomas Robinson was right there for them….who is this kid from Syracuse? He didn’t even start on his own team!!! They forgot about Marvin williams(hawks) how good did that work out for them?? Smh Dan Gilbert what R u doing???

    1. Try playing Robinson and Thompson on the same team. It’d be a disaster. Waiters has loads of potential. By the way, check his minutes played per game at Syracuse last year. You’ll see he averaged the fifth most on his team. We call that “starter minutes”.
