With the All-Star break being a week-long, it gives players who will not take part in the festivities, a chance to have a quick vacation to relax and rest their tired bodies.
One of them is Miami Heat center Hassan Whiteside, who decided to spend some time on the beach. He took to Snapchat and shared his encounters with some sea creatures, including a baby shark, a dead fish, and even a jellyfish.

It may seem odd to see Whiteside not watching the All-Star Events, but if that will help him ease his mind, the Heat won’t complain. Whiteside’s fans are also hoping his vacation will work wonders for him, keeping him focused for the late stages of the regular season.
His team is expected to rely on him heavily, as they make a big push for one of the last playoff berths in the Eastern Conference despite their very slow start to the campaign.
