This Block By Hassan Whiteside Makes It Impossible To Believe Al Jefferson Could Ever Score On Him

Hassan Whiteside is probably the best shot blocker in basketball. There just aren’t many players the league has seen who combine his length and athleticism with such a natural sense of timing. This block from the opening moments of Game 6 between the Miami Heat and Charlotte Hornets, for instance, is insane.

But Whiteside isn’t quite the defender his shot-blocking exploits suggest. Why? As Al Jefferson has made clear throughout this series, the Heat’s big man is a fool for ball fakes and can be easily bodied out of position. Needless to say, we bet Big Al tries a different approach the next time Whiteside is between he and the basket.
