Not to mention he was more than content, and more than able to hold his own on the inside with pretty much anyone. His offense was just as maticulous and varied as his defense. He was hardly a one-trick pony, and only got better in this regard as his career wore on, so I don't get your statement at all, especially in regards to early 90's Whitaker.
