Stop asking me to play 2k 💯 https://t.co/tmICi5OQmO

Nobody likes a quitter who bails in the middle of the match to rob the victor of his or her glory. It's an all-too-common problem for anyone who has played NBA 2K online.

Miami Heat center Hassan Whiteside was the latest victim of a sore loser who left rather than accepting defeat.

There's no way of knowing he was winning when the opponent turned off his or her gaming console. Yet he probably wouldn't be this upset over being spared a loss. Plus he claimed he "went crazy," which either describes the erased score or his agitation after the game prematurely ended. 

If you're going to challenge Whiteside to NBA 2K, have the decency to finish the entire showdown.
