The Heat are set to face the Cavaliers for the second time since LeBron James took his talents back to the Cleveland. When LeBron came back to Miami in December, the Heat gave him a glorious return and came out victorious. However, Wednesday night’s game is in Cleveland, and the Cavs have been peaking.
One member of the Heat squad isn’t backing down, however. Hassan Whiteside has transitioned nicely into the role of center for the Heat, averaging 15.4 pts, 14.4 rebounds and 3.6 blks in the last 7 games he’s played for the Heat. With that being said, Whiteside isn’t letting King James’ title scare him. He plans on introducing himself to LeBron right at the rim.
Hassan Whiteside on facing LeBron: "I mean, he a good player … I don't know him … I'm not guarding him. I'll meet him at the rim."

With all the hype surrounding a Heat vs Cavs matchup, it should be a good show between the young Whiteside and the crafty vet in James.
