Hassan Whiteside unhappy about DPOY voting

The NBA handed out Defensive Player of the Year on Monday, and predictably, San Antonio’s Kawhi Leonard won for a second consecutive year, with Golden State’s Draymond Green coming in second. No surprises there. The third place finisher was Miami’s Hassan Whiteside, and he thinks he should have finished a fair bit higher than third. Whiteside on DPOY: "I was third place...

Doug McDermott tackles Hassan Whiteside

Maybe Doug McDermott should have played football, rather than basketball. Because when Goran Dragic dished the ball to Hassan Whiteside in the third quarter of Thursday night’s Heat-Bulls game, Dougie McBuckets used a textbook tackle to slam the big man to the floor. Nevermind an easy dunk or layup, McDermott wasn’t going to allow Whiteside to even catch the ball properly. McDermott...

Heat to let playoffs decide Whiteside’s trip to free agency?

The Miami Heat-Hassan Whiteside relationship hasn’t been the easiest to figure out this year. Whiteside started the season on the wrong foot, garnering controversy and an odd situation with his team. He’s turned it around since, though, posting 13.9 points, 11.8 rebounds and 3.7 blocks per game, garnering praise and increasing his value a ton for when he hits the market. Still...
