NBA Role: two-way center Top DOG

From the D-League to South Beach, Hassan Whiteside has emerged as Miami’s franchise center – once a phenomenon who came out of nowhere in 2014-15, he’s now someone to build around; a ‘re-imagined’ version of Andrew Bynum, Whiteside holds down the lane while tallying double-double after double-double; huge presence in the paint defensively, sends shots back w/ authority, doesn’t bite on a lot of fakes; active on the glass, willing to work; better post moves than you might think – Whiteside’s pretty effective with his “keep it high” hook, though he needs to shore up footwork and patience down low; starting to knock down his set-shot J from the elbow, which is a game-changer once it’s nailed to the ground; maturity was an issue in the past but Whiteside’s made strides to repair a shaky rep he re-entered the league with; Miami’s undisputed franchise player – can Whiteside lead MIA back to the postseason in 2018?
