Hey, Doc Rivers - Blake Griffin and 4 other guys who can't shoot is not an effective line up. Please pay attention to that. Thanks.

I don't think SPoelstra likes him though

Exactly, if anything I think the players have been patient with Whiteside. But he has to grow up fast. This team isn't just trying to be good, they think they can be great. You're not wining anything if your mos IMPORTANT player can't stay out of foul trouble, or make key free throws, or make plays for his team mates.

I don't think there are a lot of NBA coaches who would like Whiteside's attitude, but his play speaks for itself. With that said he has a chance to get paid and do something special with the Heat. He has to play better.

At the beginning of games the Heat players all try to get him a couple easy buckets. The very first play of the third quarter was an alley to him. So iono bout freezing him out. If anything Whiteside forces too many bad shots when there are wide open shooters at the wing. He's also out of position in a lot of pick and roll plays.

Spo doesn't play Whiteside down the stretch in close 4th quarter games because he doesn't trust him to make the right play. Add on the fact he doesn't make free throws. And lets not forget the early foul trouble he's been the last few games. If he's not in the game due to foul trouble and the team is rolling without him why force the issue. Why risk injuring a guy in a blowout game.

If Whiteside wants to play more he has to play better. He'll have his opportunity, he just needs to make his free throws, pass out the double team, and stay outta foul trouble.

He's one of the best center's in the league as it pertains to foul ratio. A lot of that is Spo benching him for extended periods of time after he receives a few fouls... Spo also benches him for taking any mid-range shots, of which he's been/was one of our better mid-range shooters. nd collectively a lot of other things. They are hitting him with lobs but ignoring him when he's got mismatches or generally wants the ball outside of a lob. This is GG's third consecutive game having at least 5 more FG's than Hassan. Spo doesn't even have any plays for him. I'd be hella tight.

I disagree, Hassan has been hella cordial. I'd be pissed,

He's one of the best centers in the league purely off of what he brings defensively. He's limited offensively. His footwork is sloppy and he lacks the motor of an Andre Drummond scoring the ball. He has a long way to go offensively. I've seen Whiteside travel and get offensive fouls when he has mismatches in the post. Add on the fact the smaller player will just foul him and force him to make free throws.

And I don't know about him being a threat to make a mid range shot. He can make them occasionally, but those are just a bonus points. Why would you want your 7 foot center bailing out the defense shooting mid range jumpers anyway?

Whiteside sits out because the team is usually playing well without him on the floor. And why are you surprised GG has more shot attempts then Whiteside. He's a chucker. He's had more shot attempts than Wade multiple times this season. And if he's mad, hopefully that pushed him to play better. He can be a beast, but he's not ready yet.

Whiteside is getting treated just like any NBA rookie. He's proven nothing, yet people are wanting an Championship coach to give him the keys. He has to earn it. What the difference between Pop yelling at Duncan or Parker to the way Spo treat Whiteside?

I don't really post in S&T but I've noticed that we're 25% into the season and two things caught my eye...

 

The Miami Heat have the No. 1 seed in the East.

The East has more teams above .500 (10) than the West (6).

They almost traded PG for Hill the year before, too.

They call him the young wolf. They say he rides into battle on the back of giant direwolf. They say he can turn into a wolf himself when he wants. They say he can't be killed.

Well, what I said is a bit misleading. They wanted to trade away their pick that year for him, but the pick ended up being PG.

They call him the young wolf. They say he rides into battle on the back of giant direwolf. They say he can turn into a wolf himself when he wants. They say he can't be killed.
