Hassan Whiteside’s Historic Double-Double

Miami Heat center Hassan Whiteside is doing some incredible things this year.  Not the least of which is averaging a double-double.  “Lots of guys can post ‘ten and ten’ over the course of a season” you say.  Well that’s true but can they accomplish the feat while playing part-time?

No.

Except for Whiteside.  He is attempting to become the first NBA player in more than a half-century to average 10 points and 10 rebounds while playing less than 24 minutes per night.
