Miami Heat center Hassan Whiteside and Phoenix Sun center Alex Len did their own rendition of Monday Night Raw during the Heat’s 115-98 win over the Suns. During the 3rd quarter of the contest, Whiteside threw down a jam on Len, and then the two got into what I guess you could call a wrestling match, which resulted in Whiteside attemping to tackle Len. The whole thing was a mess really, lets take a look:
After a thorough analysis of this video, it’s evident that Whiteside needs to give Goldberg a call so he can work on his “Spear” technique because man that was WEAK.
Len and Whiteside weren’t the only ones ejected in the third quarter, as their skirmish succeeded Markieff Morris getting tossed for a flagrant foul two on Heat guard Goran Dragic. Morris shoved Dragic as he went up for a layup, and his former teammate fell pretty harshly on the hardwood.
When asked for an explanation on why things escalated between he and Len, Whiteside had this to say:
Whiteside acknowledges he should’ve restrained himself but says Len was mad “because I just kept dunking on him.”

That’s a GOAT statement from Whiteside. Gotta love it.
