There's no such thing as an easy bucket when Hassan Whiteside's around.

While practicing social distancing, Whiteside came unglued when his son, Jayden, tried to take it to the baby hoop. The Trail Blazers dynamic rim protector did what he does best and blocked the shot.

Not onceā€¦but twice.

Jayden stood no chance. 

"Quarantine or not it's still no easy buckets chill out son he tried to go up with the one hand after lol," Whiteside said in the post. 

"Count Blockula," has quickly turned Rip City into Block City, leading the NBA with 3.1 blocks per game at the time the league play was suspended. His stellar campaign has turned heads around the league with many players believing Whiteside could be a candidate for Defensive player of the Year.

If you asked Whiteside, he already is.  

"I'm a defensive guy," Whiteside told NBC Sports Northwest."I feel like I'm the best rim protector in the league, and it's not even close."

The NBA continues to remain suspended after Jazz star Rudy Gobert became the first NBA player to test positive for COVID-19. While a timeline for league play to resume is unknown, it's good to know Whiteside is still getting his blocks in, even if they are as savage as those ones on his son.
