24/7-365. Basketball Lives Here.
Heat big man Hassan Whiteside was one of the top stories of last season as he went from playing at his local YMCA to having dominant games in the NBA in a span of four months. Warriors 6’7 center Draymond Green manned the middle helping lead the Warriors to the 2015 NBA Championship.
Green and Whiteside are two different types of big men with Green being a small center and Whiteside playing more of the dominant big man role. The Warriors small-ball strategy worked this year and Green has every reason to believe that the dominant big man is no longer a thing in today’s NBA.
Today Whiteside took to Twitter to question small ball and ended up lighting a fire under Green who fired right back at his tweet. The two got into a heated battle taking some personal shots at each other.
The Warriors play the Heat on January 11th.
