Hassan Whiteside is not happy.

After being benched down the stretch of the Heat's 110-109 loss to the Brooklyn nets, star center Hassan Whiteside took some shots at the Heat's coaching staff. Whiteside was frustrated he was benched in favor of smaller players to try to run-and-gun with the smaller Nets. When asked about his benching Whiteside didn't hold back any thoughts.

A lot of teams don't have a good center. They are going to use their strengths. It's bullshit. It's really bullshit, man. There are a lot of teams that can use a center. That's one of them. That's bullshit.

The big man then followed up explicit rant saying, “I don't know if it's because I'm on a minutes restriction. The minutes have been like that all year. It's really frustrating. It's been frustrating. It's tough. I don't know, man. It's crazy. I don't understand it.” Whiteside could be on his way out of Miami as he has had several problems with the front office and coaching decisions during his time in Miami.
