All season long rumors have run amuck that Dion Waiter and Kyrie Irving had been feuding.  Despite both men saying repeatedly that the media reports were untrue, the rumors grew more persistent.  Over the weekend Irving was very vocal about the media intrusion in his life and decision making and now Waiters has made a statement regarding the relationship of the two young players.  

"On behalf of [Irving], myself, I just think we've been in so much media this year, and it's not fair to either of us," said Waiters.

"I just think, man, throughout this whole year with us two not liking each other, it's total BS. We've been friends before we even made the NBA, before any of this. I just think y'all saying we don't like playing with one another …

"Yeah, we still need to learn certain things. But I think at the end of the day, we're genuinely friends. I love him as a friend, teammate, everything. I just want everybody to know that. I don't hate this guy. I'm pretty sure he don't hate me. I know he don't hate me. I hope he don't hate me. Rome wasn't built in one day. We're still young. We're still planning to stay together. We're still working. As long as we've got great communication down, it's fine.''
