Gobert sent out a tweet that alluded to Waiters making a dirty play. Waiters was asked about the play today. Via the Sun Sentinel, Waiters said:
“I didn’t even know that was him,” Waiters said. “I went for the ball, making a basketball play. He (goes) right to social media. I ain’t a social media guy. At the end of the day, that (expletive) don’t matter. Tell him to get out of his feelings. We won, they lost. So what.”
“I’ve never been a dirty player in my life,” Waiters said. “If he thought it was a dirty play, you come to me as a man and you ask me and I’ll tell him the same (expletive) I’m saying now. I saw it on social media, late, after the win. I’m not a dirty player.”
