For historical context, Whiteside’s blocked shots average would be the highest in the NBA since Alonzo Mourning averaged 3.91 for the Heat in 1998-99, when a lockout shortened the season to 50 games. Over a full 82-game season, Whiteside’s average would be the highest since Dikembe Mutombo swatted away 4.49 per game in 1995-96. In the 42 seasons since the NBA first started tracking blocks as a statistic, the league leader has averaged at least 4.0 blocks per game on 13 occasions. But all 13 happened over the first 23 seasons (1973-1996). Mark Eaton did it three times, and Dikembe Mutombo, Hakeem Olajuwon and Manute Bol achieved it twice apiece.

There was a time when Alonzo Mourning was more adversary than ally for the Heat. That was when he was starting his career with the Charlotte Hornets. Then the center forced his trade to the Heat amid Pat Riley arrival and he become public enemy No. 1 in Charlotte. Now retired and invested in his humanitarian work, Mourning will be honored during a “Buzz City Night” of his own on Feb. 2 when the Heat play in Charlotte. Hornets Sports & Entertainment President & COO Fred Whitfield said Mourning, now the Heat’s vice president of player programs, will be cited for his impact on the Charlotte community. Mourning was selected by the Hornets with the No. 2 pick in the 1992 NBA Draft. He spent three seasons in Charlotte and remains Charlotte’s all-time leader in blocks (684) and blocks per game (3.2). The Hornets will wear their black “Buzz City” Pride uniforms the night Mourning is honored.
