A good frame that continues to fill out as he gets older
Loads and loads of upside
Relies too much on his shot blocking which causes him to coast on the defensive end
Offensive game is still raw
Needs to develop a consistent outside shot
Comfort in handling the basketball especially when double-teamed down low
Must become stronger and more physical to truly reach his potential
Summary: Whiteside's stock is on fire. He has pretty much come from nowhere to be one of the most intriguing prospects in college basketball. While he still needs to develop his all-around offensive game, his stock is soaring so it might be hard for him to turn down the possibility of becoming a top-five pick. Wherever he ends up, that team will have to be patient in letting Whiteside develop, but the potential is definitely plentiful.
Player Comparison: A poor man's Dwight Howard. Whiteside reminds me of a young Howard due to his length, rebounding and shot-blocking abilities. Howard was not polished offensively when he first came into the league and pretty much got most of points on dunks or offensive putbacks, which is where Whiteside is earning his buckets. Whiteside has the frame to fill out and be a physical specimen that Howard has become. I admit the Howard comparison is mighty lofty so right now think of Whiteside as a DeAndre Jordan-type.
Walter your inability to bet the Patriots all year with Brady on the team is inexplicable. Yes, since Brady came back from suspension, you bet the Patriots 0 times, even though they covered as decent and often huge favorites. Why? Why are you more afraid than Goodell is to show up at Foxborough to bet on a great team to beat inferior oponents by a large margin? You lost out on a lot of money. As for the Patriots defense who will be "overwhelmed" by Pittsburgh hahaha, the Patriots defense has stepped up when it needed to. Logan Ryan who is not even the best DB let alone CB on the team just had a dominant game covering one of the best wide receivers in the league. And you're going to say that Brady can't go stride for stride against Big Ben who, with his 0 TD performance last Sunday, once again proved that he has turned into an awful road playoff QB? You know what 0 TDs will win you in the AFC Championship game? I don't believe that betting on Pitt getting 6 points is a bad decision - seeing as I may do the same. But to predict the Patriots to straight up lose is laughable. The advantage they have on defense and coaching is pretty big and they may even be even offensively solely because Brady has been using Edelman more and more and Dion Lewis's return has shown to be very important.
