Video: Goran Dragic Puts Hassan Whiteside’s Spanish Skills to the Test

1 Min Read

To celebrate Spanish Heritage Month, Miami Heat point guard Goran Dragic tested big man Hassan Whiteside on his growing Spanish vocabulary.

“He’s saying that he learned some Spanish so we are gonna put him on some test in Spanish,” Dragic began.

Whitside replied simply and to the point:

At one point in the video, Whiteside is stumped by a word and calls on the help of a group of boys and girls enjoying the test.

“Yeah I need a lifeline,” Whiteside says before a young boy comes to his assistance. “Ojos.”

“Yeah good job,” Dragic replies.”Ojos.”

With the massive Spanish speaking population that calls South Florida home, Whiteside’s interest in the language is surely to make him even more beloved by the Miami faithful.

The Heat look to improve on their 1-2 preseason record as they take on the Charlotte Hornets on Monday night at AmericanAirlines Arena.
