your opinion but it's teams who slow it down like Wisco that tend to dictate tempo. Teams who play them typically can't do much about increasing the number of possessions and playing and play a run and gun game. They don't turn it over (= fewer transition opportunities) and they play good transition D when they miss shots. As you say, it's a good tourney style of play. In my opinion one of the reasons why it's effective in march is because they don't have to adjust to someone else's style of play, no matter what the conferenc . Granted it's not all that pretty at times.
