Cleveland Cavaliers guard Dion Waiters clarifies remarks regarding his pregame ritual
by Chris Haynes
Cleveland Cavaliers shooting guard Dion Waiters sought to clarify Saturday comments he made earlier this week about his religious beliefs and not being on the court for the national anthem at the Cavaliers game Wednesday against the Utah Jazz.
On Friday, Dion informed me of his Muslim faith and said that was the reason he missed Wednesday's national anthem.
"It's because of my religion," Waiters said. "That's why I stayed in the locker room."
