Heat F Hassan Whiteside was ejected (for the second time in a week) from his team’s 100-90 loss to the Boston Celtics on Monday, for this inexplicable cheap shot to Celtics F Kelly Olynyk:
It seems Heat lead man, Dwyane Wade has had enough of Whiteside’s antics.
Wade publicly questioned Whiteside’s maturity and overall reliability in a post game interview. When asked about the dirty play, he had this to say via Chris Wittyngham:

There is no doubt that Hassan Whiteside is bringing a surprising energy and toughness to the Heat lineup, but if he keeps getting kicked out for stupid, and dangerous play like this, he won’t be of much use to the team, or anyone else for that matter.
He’d he wise to listen to his Championship winning, veteran teammate.
