On September 28, Beijing time, the Heat defeated the Celtics 125-113 in the sixth game of the Eastern Conference Finals and eliminated their opponents 4-2 to become the Eastern Conference Champion. Their opponents in the finals are
While everyone was busy reviewing the countless bloody storms between the Heat and the Lakers, an unexpected data caught the attention of many people.
Dion Waiters, who played only 38 minutes in this year's playoffs and scored 10 points, may be the biggest winner of the finals.
Why do you say that? It turns out that Waiters has played for both the Heat and the Lakers this season-even if he only played 10 games in the regular season.
At the beginning of the 2019-20 season, the conflict between Waiters and the Heat management has become clear. In October last year, he was banned by the Heat for "behaviour endangering the team", and later there was a "panic attack" on the plane. In order to reduce salary payments, the Heat continue to suspend Waiters, his departure is imperative.
In the end, he was traded to the Grizzlies in February of this year and was made a free agent three days later.
A few days before the NBA suspension, the Lakers announced that they signed with Waiters at the basic salary, but unexpectedly, the epidemic suspended the season and Waiters could not run in with his new teammates. After the rematch, Waiters played the final game of the regular season, but was never placed in the Lakers' main rotation in the playoffs.
Not surprisingly, he will not be reused in the finals. However, according to NBA practice, the championship team will give rings to all players who have played this season. If the Lakers win the championship, he will definitely have his share of the ring; if the Heat win the championship, if the Heat are really willing to give it to him, theoretically it is possible (of course, he may not accept it), but considering the situation when the two sides broke up, this may be minimal. of.
In the 2015-16 season, Varejao was traded by the Cavaliers,
In the 2016-17 season, the Warriors waived Varejao in the middle of the season and finally won the championship. This time, Varejao did not reject the Warriors. He received the championship ring and successfully ended his career.
