Doug McDermott Tackles Hassan Whiteside…Football Style (Video)

McDermott tackle Whiteside

Thursday night, the Bulls’ Doug McDermott hit the Heat’s Hassan Whiteside with a tackle that football coaches everywhere may want to consider showing in their film room while teaching proper tackling technique.

McDermott’s form is flawless, as he wraps Whiteside with both arms before dragging him to the floor.  Unfortunately, he was playing basketball at the time, not football.  So he was given a technical foul for his actions, rather than a slap on the butt.
