Hassan Whiteside has come a long way, from dropping to the 33rd overall pick in the 2010 NBA Draft to being a max player with the Miami Heat. Whiteside hit rock bottom after being released by the Sacramento Kings following a drop in stock in 2012. As a result, he packed his bags and headed overseas to dominate in locations such as Lebanon and eventually winning a championship in China.

Check out the video above for a closer look at Hassan Whiteside’s timeline of success and let us know if he’s destined to go down as one of the best big men to ever do it.
