Cavs’ Waiters Feels Sympathy for Former GM

(Cavaliers’ Dion) Waiters said the firing of Cavs General Manager Chris Grant the first week in February really affected him.

“That’s a guy who took a chance on me, a young kid like myself coming from where I come from,” he said. “He made my dream come true. You never want to see (anybody) get fired. He’s got a family. You’ve got to feed your kids. What could we have done differently? Did it take him getting fired for us to start playing the way we did? You never know. I know I took it hard because if we’d have been taking care of business like we were supposed to the beginning of the season, he would still be here.”
