Cavaliers Rookie Dion Waiters Surprises Family By Accepting Dinner Invite

Cavaliers draft pick Dion Waiters was given an invitation to dinner while signing autographs at an event near Syracuse. To the family’s surprise, he showed up-

“Waiters returned to Syracuse last weekend from his native Philadelphia with five cousins in tow. The whole Waiters’ crew appeared on the Mackeys’ doorstep Saturday evening and stayed until about 9 p.m. Waiters challenged Mackey’s husband, Jeff, to the playground game of “H-O-R-S-E.” He shot baskets with Mikaila Ryan, the Mackeys’ daughter. He mingled with Andrea Mackey’s brother, who lives down the block, and her parents, who live across the street.

“It was really fun and it was really cool being able to meet an NBA player,” Mikaila Ryan said. “I was surprised that he actually came, though. He came and he didn’t even know us.”

    Ha haaaaa, when I read the headline, I thought you meant Waiters’ family. I thought, Hey, I’ve got an inlaw like that. She never shows up at family functions.
