found this article very interesting, the dunks/3pointers only style reminds me of michigan bball now with shooters spreading the floor or the magic with dwight howard. The pacing and the simplicity of the offense is very much reminiscent of the hurry-up no huddle spread offense.
The Amazing Pace
I know that math seems to say that good teams should push the tempo. More possessions = greater sample size, which means less randomness in the outcome, so goes the theory, along the same lines as why baseball plays a seven-game series instead of a single-elimination tournament.
Still, I wonder if math doesn't really argue slowing down the tempo for a similar reason. The longer a possession lasts, the longer a bad team has to defend a good one, and the greater likelihood that the good team will find a good shot. In a vacuum, the theory of pushing tempo to overwhelm lesser teams with volume assumes that all shots are equal.
