Update: Here's Hassan Whiteside's new custom fish tank. Coming to an episode of Tanked?
Days away from the NBA regular season and Miami Heat center Hassan Whiteside is already making a splash, this one off the court in the form of a 1500-gallon fish tank, per the Miami Herald.
Hassan Whiteside contacted the producers of the cable series, Tanked, who install elaborate and sometimes over-the-top fish tanks in the homes of celebrities and others, and asked if he could have one. They agreed to install a 1500 gallon tank in his home.
It’s not certain whether that means Whiteside will definitely appear on the show that airs on Animal Planet, but it appears to be a possibility. Whiteside has shown interest in aquariums in the past, as evidenced by his Instagram.
Whiteside paid $7 million for a modern home in Miami Beach this past summer not long after re-signing with the Heat for $96 million over four seasons.
