Had dinner the other night with a Miami Heat fan. He wished Portland the best, but said Whiteside is the laziest player he’s ever seen. Apparently the night that the Pistons came to town, Whiteside let Andre Drummond go crazy. Just stood there while Drummond gobbled up rebounds and set some kind of personal scoring record. I didn’t look this up, I’m just taking his word for it. But I think it does help explain why Olshey went out and got Pau Gasol. He knows Whiteside is a big risk, and he needs some insurance at the center position.
