Thats probably why he wants to bring in Baron. Baron has run a uptempo offense before and he knows how to run it. PG is the most important position on the floor in an uptempo offense(See Felton in NY, Nash in PHX, Baron in GS....)
Absinthe, just because some teams around the league are playing up tempo and cant defend doesnt mean we cant

Let the CHOsen one get to work!
hopefully we bring in a new center then and TT starts cuz i cant see Diaw and Naz adopting a run run run up tempo style of play too well.

If we are going to be running up-tempo, that must mean the Camby/Miller for Crash/Augustin trade talk is nothing more than that. I havent watched much of Camby, but surely he cant be very effective in an up-tempo style of play.
Kemba and Bismack: The Future Has Arrived
Adelman has had teams ranked in the top 5-6 in scoring and defense...in the same year...but with every system it depends on the players you have...but it is certainly possible to be up-tempo and play solid defense...
God Bless you, Paul. It'll be fun to see Matt Carroll play more, too."I want us to get up and down and let it all hang out. If they don't want to get up and down, they can come sit down by me."
CO SIGN....this is great. The beauty of it is that we have the players to run an effective up tempo style game, Crash,Jax, DJ, TT, UPS, Henderson, Doris and even Livingston. Players should be pumped and excited now, to run a more free flowing style game with Silas.
Defensively, if Silas puts enough emphasis on it/holds players accountable for it, i don't see why we can't play effectively on both ends.
I'm excited and can't wait for our next game. It might be trash, but i want to see the differences this new approach from a new coach will have on our players and the development of our young prospects.
I already saw this coming, and it's gonna be awesome. All of our players benefit from an uptempo system - DJ, Jack, Crash, TT, Boris, etc.,
I'm also looking forward to Silas coming in with an open mind and playing the guys that should be out there without bias - UPS, Hendo...
If we go running maybe Diaw will be less pudgy . I've seen the bobcats play a run/gun game once or twice (I think once against the pacers and once against the nuggets) my timeline isn't 100% accurate, but I *THINK* that the nuggets game was the first year larry was here, and we lost but not crazy, and the pacers game was new years during Sam Vincent, but it was something to see, we killed them.
What to do, what to do...
