You had an incredible disconnect in terms of communication. I remember the first day we were there, he said something and one of the players responded with a 'Yes, sir.' If you're from the Northeast and someone says 'Yes, sir,' to you, you think they're mocking you, that they're some sort of wise guy. But in the South, when you say 'Yes, sir' it's a sign of respect. I don't think Coach Pitino understood that. He was like, 'These guys are wise guys. What are they doing yes-siring me?' There was a cultural disconnect when we got there.

Interesting piece on the similar career paths of Cal and Pitino
