Hassan Whiteside tackled Kelly Olynyk.
The NBA punished Whiteside, suspending him for a game.
Dwyane Wade condemned Whiteside, calling him unreliable.
And Whiteside is coming down hard on himself.
Joseph Goodman of the Miami Herald:
I believe Whiteside’s sincerity.
But he has to take the next step of not putting himself in this position. It’s one thing to feel bad about letting your emotions get the best of you. It’s another to prevent that from happening in the first place.
Whiteside has come a long way. He has bit further to go.
