Hassan Whiteside had his coming-out party on national television with a huge game against the Chicago Bulls. He had 14 points, 13 rebounds, and 12 blocks. That’s official.
Whiteside got a postgame interview from ABC/ESPN’s Heather Cox and talked about why he was so motivated:
Because we all do it for the NBA 2K ratings, Hassan! But to be fair, you can always play MyPlayer for hours and hours and get that rating up that way.
Or you can block a dozen shots on national TV.
