3. Hassan Whiteside
Team: Miami Heat
2016-17 Stats: 17.0 PPG, 14.1 RPG, 2.1 BlPG
It’s been a joy to watch Whiteside develop over the last four years and especially last season when he was forced into a leadership role after Dwyane Wade returned to his native Chicago after 13 phenomenal seasons in Miami. The crazy thing about Whiteside is that a lot of people probably didn’t even realize his stat line in 2016-17 which potentially could be even better this season.
