Heat’s Hassan Whiteside ejected for elbowing Boban Marjanovic in the head

Hassan Whiteside has been a very solid contributor for the Miami Heat this season. Averaging 12.2 PPG and 11.1 RPG, the Heat can hardly afford not to have him on the floor as they battle for playoff positioning. Of course, having Whiteside on the floor presents problems as well. Namely, that he’s very likely to do something that’s going to get him thrown out of the game or even...

Even on Valentine's Day, Miami's Whiteside doesn't want a hug

Miami Heat center Hassan Whiteside is one extremely tall, exceptionally-mercurial basketball player. Despite his contentious attitude, odd behavior and the fact that NBA basketball is harshly shoving big men out from under the spotlight, in a few month's time Whiteside will be roughly 100 times as wealthy as he is today. Until then he's just a shot-blocking quote board who's making...

The Heat Could Be Much Better Than This

It's hard to figure out any of the teams in the middle of the pack in the Eastern Conference, where only four games separate the No. 3 seed from the No. 9 seed. One losing streak or one easy stretch of games can move a team from having homecourt advantage to slipping out of the playoffs entirely or vice versa. There's just not much separation between a group of teams that are one...
