07:27 AM ET 12.18 | For his part, Dion Waiters says he hasn't told anyone he wants out of Cleveland. The second-year guard did admit, however, that he's a little tired of being the center of trade rumors. "Yeah, man. Dion this. Dion that. You know," he said while smiling in the Cavs' locker room prior to Tuesday's game vs. Portland. "At the end of the day, there's nothing I can do. They keep coming up with these stories that I have no idea about." ... [A Tuesday report] indicated Waiters wanted out of Cleveland. His name also was the main topic in early-season reports involving a supposedly confrontational team meeting. "Why would I do that? It makes no sense," Waiters said on the latest report. "This is the team that drafted me. People come up with their own things, man."

Sinking ship? Ever since LBJ left, the USS Sinkingship has acquired every first round draft pick in the NBA and look at them now.

They've gone from back to back 60+ win seasons to...

Even more first round draft picks!

This is a false story. Made up by the faux media. I think the interns sit in the lunch room each day and just make stuff up that they think will get posters to react.

The Lakers are joining the Cavs in the lottery.

Tough call. This guy is good but where does he fit in another team?

It's not about how many draft picks you can collect but rather what you do with them. The Cavs don't know how to draft. They picked Irving, Thompson, Waiters and Bennett. Not bad but at best a C+ rating. This only because Irving has turned out to be a pretty good player.

Compare that with OKC. They drafted Durant, Westbrook, Ibaka and Harden. That is an A+ in anyone's book. Of the four OKC players mentioned above I would only pick Irving ahead of Ibaka.

Whatever Dion...........where there is smoke, there is some kind of fire.

You have said something to somebody...........somebody in your "click" is leaking info, of course you deny it......

Also, I would say that Lillard tore up KI last night, but I never saw KI guarding him.....he was off guarding wesley matthews or some no name........shame the best PG in the East can't guard his own position........

Yep. The Lakers will visit the lottery this year. The difference between our teams is, mine goes to the lottery less times than yours goes to the finals...

Although they are similar in size and stature stature, Lillard is a 'beast' when compared to Irving
