Hassan Whiteside has no time for NBA 2K rage quitters

Hassan Whiteside voiced his displeasure over Twitter about an NBA 2K opponent who raged quit mid-game. Throughout the last two years Hassan Whiteside has been tied to the NBA 2K brand despite not being an official spokesman of the video game itself. After his breakout game against the Chicago Bulls in 2015, Whiteside casually exclaimed that he was trying to get his 2K rating up. Since then, Whiteside has been an avid player of the video game as made apparent by his Snapchat. With that being said, Whiteside doesn't have time for quitters. Yesterday he tweeted "Stop asking me to play 2K"...

Throwback to when Emmanuel Mudiay slammed ALL OVER Hassan Whiteside

Oof, this was just plain disrespectful. Emmanuel Mudiay has all the physical gifts in the world. He's strong, fast, and prone to dunking on dudes. Take for example, this prime example, when he went up, challenged a primo shot blocker in Hassan Whiteside, and destroyed the poor man's soul. Whiteside had a lot of blocks tonight but @emmanuelmudiay says not this one big fella! https://t.co/BYR2V5xWi2 — NBA特集onESPN (@EliseTwersky) July 24, 2016 Ouuuuuch! I thought rookies were supposed to respect their elders! Dang man!
