Hassan Whiteside uses Nick Young meme to call out critics

One of Lakers Twitters' favorite memes has gone mainstream.

Miami Heat center Hassan Whiteshide nearly messed around and got a triple double against the Philadelphia 76ers on Friday night, scoring 13 points to go with 9 rebounds and 8(!!!) blocked shots. Whiteside decided to use his gaudy line to call out critics of his defense on Twitter after the game:

You go Hassan. Keep tweeting.
