    Hassan Whiteside

    NBA Comparison: Marcus Camby/Tyson Chandler

    Strengths: A legit 7-footer with excellent size, strength and potential ... Has good agility and run/jump athleticism ... Very intriguing combination of physical attributes (7-feet and 230 lbs with a 7-6 wingspan) and an explosive athlete ... Imposing defensive presence due to his length and leaping ability ... Already a force defensively averaging 4.4 blocks per game in just over 20 minutes per game (through his first 7 games) ... An excellent rebounder, using his size and strength well on the glass at both ends ... Shows an exuberance for the game and should continue to develop as he gains experience ... Shows some nice things offensively with developing post skills and touch on his shot ... He is still in the early stages in his offensive development, so sticking around college 2-3 years would benefit him in the long run ...

    Weaknesses: Still a work in progress offensively. At times looks awkward in the post but appears to be gaining confidence ... He's born in 1989, so he's nearly 2 years older than the average freshman. But his upside is unmistakable ... Needs to work on his free throw shooting (currently shooting below 40%) ... Feel for the game is still raw, but not terrible ... Still needs to develop his upperbody strength (at 230) but has a solid frame and muscle mass to work with ... Needs to develop his passing skills to find teammates when doubled ... Should work on his post skills and develop better range on his shot ... Also must look to become more sure handed and cut down on turnovers, although he shows soft hands, and should be fine as he gains experience ...

    Notes: Comes from an athletic family. His father Hassan Arbubakrr played in the NFL for the Minnesota Vikings and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

    He still has less work ethic than Hasheem Thabeet. Give him a multi year contract and see how ****ty he comes back after a summer off.

    You never told us you're on the Heat staff. Look at you doing so well in life breh.
    Or are you working at the AAArena? Otherwise are you able to explain how you know the current condition of Whiteside's work ethic and how that compares to Thabeets?
    I'm just asking. If you know then let us know so we understand better.

    Still disappointed we let go of Hasan Whiteside from the Vipers and Robert Covington who are both beasting on both ends of the court! Imagine we signed Whiteside over Dorsey and still kept Covington!!

    It's funny, think I've seen certiefiedtroll say this exact thing "worse work-ethic than thabeet" like 10 times. Whiteside must've banged his sister or something.

    Neither would still be playing.

    It's much easier to give minutes to someone like Covington on a non-contending team. I imagine Canaan or Kpap would look great on a team like Philadelphia or Minnesota because of all the minutes they would receive.

    Just saw that he's going to be a FA this summer. I'm really interested to see how much he gets. Production wise he's doing a Linsanity here. I would not be surprised some crappier team throw him a $10mil/yr contract.

    27.98 PER
    18.0ppg (FG 64.3%) PER36
    15.2rpg PER36
    4.7bpg PER36

    I wonder how sustainable these number are... Because this is a TOP5 player production if he did average 36 minutes.

    He needs to be careful with foul trouble though.

    Miami 6-10 now when Whiteside plays over 15 minutes... Nice stat lines though...

    They are only 15-17 apart from that anyway.... so it's hard to suggest he is making a significantly negative impact?

    How many of those games were without Wade?

    Excellent question. I'd like to know as well.

    I figure having Wade and Bosh on the court together is more impactful on the Heat record than anything else.

    1 win and 4 losses without Wade


    plus

    2 more losses when Bosh was gone.


    So with Bosh and Wade in there and Whiteside over 15 minutes, Miami's record is 5-4.


    Heat are 16-19 overall when both Bosh and Wade play. So that means when both Bosh and Wade play and Whiteside not playing 15 minutes they are 11-15.

    11-15 with Wade and Bosh in there without Whiteside playing over 15 minutes.

    5-4 with Wade and Bosh and Whiteside playing over 15 minutes.

    They were losing without him too. Their team doesn't have enough offense.

    The guy HAS to be playing above his head right now. I just don't believe the grizzlies and all the other teams he was on would have let that kind of talent go.

    This is a silly fallacy that a lot of fans fall pray too. Tons of teams, even good, smart teams, have made scouting mistakes before... The championship Pistons passed up on Dwyane Wade for Darko Millicic, if you recall. Gilbert Arenas fell deep into the 2nd round. The list goes on and on.

    People surprise people all the time. It's really, really hard to objectively determine how good someone is going to be in one league by watching them in another. Hell, sometimes even watching them in the same league will not account for a lot of variables.
