Dion Waiters has finally found a new team in the NBA in the Los Angeles Lakers after being released by the Miami Heat. Several scandals and inappropriate behavior led to Waiters leaving South Beach in a bad way.

Fortunately for Dion, the Lakers put their attention on him and now he has reunited with LeBron James at Southern California.

There are plenty of things to see about Waiters’ career, but now one has surfaced regarding the guard and his nicknames. For instance, Basketball Reference shows some interesting nicknames for Waiters.

We can find ‘Downhill Dion’, ‘Kobe Wade’, ‘Google Me’ and ‘Headache’ among Waiters’ nicknames. One wonders what is the origin of these nicknames.

You could say ‘Kobe Wade’ is pretty interesting, as they put together two of the best shooting guards in the history of the game. Nobody knows what led to these nicks, but they are really curious, to say the least.
