“Whitsitt has documented he has the guts to be different. Refreshingly so. He has established he’s unafraid to think in opposition of his peers, and substantiated he’s prepared to take a calculated risk for the sake of the team, even though his career is very much on the line. Not since Boston’s Red Auerbach was beating his counterparts off every dribble, has a management type exhibited such individuality.”
