According to the article, the strong play of Brian Shaw in the preseason sealed the fate for Whatley.
Check out Ennis' NBA basketball journey (he also had stops in the CBA, Israel and the Philippines):
|I can't lie: I totally resemble Ben Gordon here|
So what would've happened had Whatley made the team? Well for one we may never get to see Otis Birdsong make the team. Birdsong was the better player, so that wasn't too disappointing. Whatley would obviously have a WTHHT written about him today, along the lines of other back-up point guards like Andre Turner, Bimbo Coles, and Doug Overton.
Otherwise I'm thinking Whatley's signing doesn't really make the slightest bit of difference. But it's August and we're bored.
All I know is that Ennis Whatley almost played for the Celtics. And now, you know that too. tb727 8/22/2014 08:00:00 AM Tweet Edit
