In the past three games, Miami Heat center Hassan Whiteside has been called for 14 fouls, and he’s not happy about it. Whiteside said after the game that he didn’t even want to broach the topic of officiating, but he made clear his feelings on going up against Hornets big man Cody Zeller. “I just got to do a better job of just looking out for Cody flopping,” Whiteside said. “Guy’s flopping, and I just got to do a better job on that and not get offensive fouls.”
“Just don’t get too physical with him, because he’s going to fall over,” said Whiteside, who finished third in NBA defensive player of the year voting. “I don’t know if that’s something they teach him – to flop. But just don’t get too physical with him, because he’s going to fall over.” Whiteside delivered his comments in the Heat locker room after Zeller had already spoken in the Hornets’ locker room, and Zeller couldn’t be found for comment afterward.
