Last season we saw 7′ Hassan Whiteside emerge from the D-League and put together a stretch with some of the best big-man stats in NBA history. Last season we also saw the Golden State Warriors win a NBA championship with 6’7 Draymond Green playing center. Whiteside was rewarded with a higher 2K rating and Green was rewarded with a $82 million contract.
Over the past 24 hours, the two very different centers got into a little Twitter spat over the effectiveness of small ball against a traditional center.
It looks like the two are done dissing each other but you can bet on January 11th when the Heat and Warriors meet that the two will continue their discussion.
