    Hassan Whiteside does Paris, asks Mona Lisa ‘Who doin’ it with blocks?’

    If you aren’t following Hassan Whiteside on Snapchat by now... The Miami Heat’s 7-foot comedian and the league’s rebounding champion last season added another glorious chapter to his Snapchat adventures this weekend when he toured Paris on vacation and took us through The Louvre in a way only he can.

    Now that the NBA draft is over – and the Spurs are once again being complimented on finding a good player that everyone else passed on – it is time for my annual “end of the season” post. This year, I will address the following question: Which teams had a good season? Of course, one must first define the word “good.” “Good” can mean “better than expected,” or in the Warriors’ case “meeting expectations.” But “good” can also mean “how does the team feel about itself when it looks back on the season?” Let me give you an example — the Houston Rockets. The 2015-16 season was clearly NOT good. The Dwight Howard experiment failed miserably (and it continues to – e.g. the Atlanta Hawks). James Harden
