For as much potential as Miami Heat center Hassan Whiteside has, he sure knows how to frustrate the hell out of his head coach. Whether he's tackling Alex Len or cheap shot-ing Kelly Olynk, Whiteside has drawn the ire of both Erik Spoelstra and Dwyane Wade, who has openly criticized Whiteside for his immaturity.

During tonight's game against the Toronto Raptors, a game in which the Heat need to win to keep any semblance of a playoff birth alive, Wade held the ball just inside the 3-point line, waiting for a Whiteside screen that was supposed to come. But Whiteside never came, and Spoelstra just about spontaneously combusts on the sideline trying to get Whiteside to come over. Rarely do you ever seen Spoelstra that animated, much less flailing his arms about like he just got an Xbox One for Christmas. Whiteside strikes again!
