Whiteside got tossed with 4:26 left in the third quarter of the Heat’s 115-98 victory after charging at Len and tackling him under the basket. Len provoked that by grabbing the back of Whiteside’s jersey and shoving him. They had been going at it most of the night, and that was the breaking point. “It was about the fourth or fifth time I dunked on him and I feel like he was really frustrated,” Whiteside said. “I shouldn’t have came back an retaliated the way I did because it really hurt my team… but every day is a learning day for me. But that’s what it was– it was just because I just kept dunking on him.” Palm Beach Post

Marc J. Spears: Everyone other than Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh & Hassan Whiteside available from the Heat, a source said. The times have changed for Whiteside. Hassan Whiteside can't be traded since he's within three months of signing his contract, but the Heat wouldn't move diamond in rough anyway. Twitter @SpearsNBAYahoo

You see any similarities between you and Hassan Whiteside? Chris Andersen: “Absolutely not. He does everything 10 times better than I do it. With his length and his wingspan and jumping ability – s***, he’s doing everything with ease. It looks like a video game deal where you create your own guy and he gets in there and just does what he does. It’s fun to watch. You can imagine what his career’s gonna be like. I try to pass my experience on to him and give him a little insight of what I’ve learned over the years. In a way, he does what I do. But he’s got a soft hook. I ain’t got that. He has a nice jumper. I got that. His length with his arms is amazing.” Palm Beach Post

Everybody in the NBA wants top get their hands on the next Hassan Whiteside — a late bloomer who been a force in the middle for the Miami Heat. The guy who may fit that profile is Eli Holman, formerly of the University of Detroit and now playing in China where he finished one assist shy of a triple-double in Game 1 of his team’s first-round playoff series. There are some remarkable similarities between their stories. But whether Holman jumps to the NBA after the Chinese playoffs or remains overseas remains an open question. For now, I have heard that there are three NBA teams interested, but that number should grow after Holman’s near triple-double of 15 points, 16 rebounds, and nine assists in Game 1 of the Guangsha-Liaonang series. Holman is 25, like Whiteside, and other similarities are remarkably coincidental, to say the least. SheridanHoops
