The Grizzlies faced off against the Heat on Friday night, and Hassan Whiteside left the match in a bad mood.
He was fired up and angry about Marc Gasol and his tendency to flop, and he wasn’t afraid to say so to the media. Via the Sun Sentinel:
“When you’re Marc Gasol, I guess you can throw your head back and get a foul, and you can tweet that,” Whiteside said.
He’s got a point, and the anger probably wasn’t helped by the 3 fouls he picked up in the beginning of the second half. Marc Gasol definitely likes to flop; international players who grow up watching soccer, where flopping is a part of the game, tend to flop more than American players, which can probably be extremely frustrating to play against.
