Observing Hassan Whiteside in the NBA bubble has been… interesting.
On one hand, he's competitive and serious on the court. He's dialed in in the Trail Blazers pursuit of a playoff run.
Then, he gets to his room and all bets are off.
He's a marathon Warzone player:

He's testing out filters on his phone:
And now, we can call him Chef Whiteside with the pot, boy!
Whiteside took to his Instagram story to let people know that if he had a kitchen in his room, he'd be whipping up a masterpiece.
The streets keep asking me- Whiteside how you living' in a bubble. If I had a stove, I'd be in here cooking crazy. If we had an NBA cookout, I'm first team, for real. -- Hassan Whiteside
Then, Whiteside laid out his top chefs and where he'd rank himself.
Here's the list:
- Gordon Ramsey
- Bobby Flay
- His chef now: Chef Kiara "Kitchen Killa" Hardy
- Whiteside himself
- Chef BoyarDee
Yes, SpongeBob Squarepants is included in his list, as was the man who makes Beefaroni…
"Did you see what that Krabby Patty did to Squidward?!" Whiteside said. "He's in front of me. He makes a fine burger."
Once this is all over, we'll get Chef Whiteside to concoct his finest cuisine. But, until then, we'll just have to take his word for it.
