The first time I ever had an edible I was at a theme park and it was the WORST decision I ever made! WORSE day of my life and I wasted the day because all I did was freak out! So I feel so bad for Dion Waiters!
The story goes, Dion who plays for the Miami Heat decided to take an edible on a flight from Phoenix to Los Angeles with his team, he did NOT react well to it and had a panic Attack on the flight! According to sources, Dion had a stomach ache and took the edible to help him feel better.
Well this must have just been the straw that broke the camels back because Dion has now been suspended for ten games! The Heat released this statement below.
"We are very disappointed in Dion's actions this season that include the very scary situation on Thursday night, and grateful that the outcome wasn't worse,"
"There have been a number of instances this season in which Dion has engaged in conduct detrimental to the team. ... We are proud of how our players have started the season. We expect all of our players, including Dion, to conduct themselves in accordance with the highest standards, and to show professionalism and respect for their teammates, the team, the fans and the NBA community."
Waiters will lose out on a $1.2 million contract bonus because of the missed games. He would have needed to play in 70 of Miami's 73 remaining games to claim the bonus.
Waiters is owed $25 million over this season and next as part of a deal he signed with the Heat in 2017.
