It’s been a rough year for Dion Waiters.
Ok, that was me being politically-correct — it’s been an unmitigated disaster.
He hasn’t made a shot (that wasn’t a wide open meaningless layup at the very end of garbage time) SINCE FEBRUARY 11TH. THAT IS 12 DAYS AGO. In addition, he is pretty much every single play on the SportsCenter ‘Not Top 10’ pretty much every night the Thunder have a game. It’s that bad and that hard to watch.
Here’s a little dose of Twitter’s reaction to Dion’s performance on Sunday vs. the Cleveland Cavaliers:
Why is Billy Donovan keeping Waiters in?— YoYo (@YosefMaaroof28) February 21, 2016
does Billy Donovan know Waiters is still in the game?— Bill James (@billjays) February 21, 2016
Billy Donovan is not an NBA Head Coach!! Keeping D.Waiters is unfathomable. #OKCvsCLE— Htown (@_JWEAVE_) February 21, 2016
Billy Donovan is committing a criminal offense with his Waiters love— Robert Flom (@RichHomieFlom) February 21, 2016

Well, one fan in particular who goes by the name
@DaRealBootum on Twitter got creative with his Waiters frustration, remixing every Dion miss with Celine Dion’s “My Heart Will Go On” — the teary-eyed song made famous by the movie Titanic.
I don’t know what the word for ‘more than perfect’ is, but, this montage is just that. Enjoy.
Maybe Waiters will make a shot next game. Maybe he won’t. Let’s hope for the latter so we keep getting videos like this.
