7 seconds or less is the dumbest thing i've ever heard of. If you are given 24 seconds to find the best shot, go ahead and use 23.9 of it if you have to.
Can someone explain the point of 7 seconds or less? Is it to wear out the defense? That would be true if his system was about running, but it would still be best to slow down if you aren't able to beat the defense down the court for a fast-break and they are already set. But it doesn't seem that that's what D'Antonio tells his people do to...it seems its just 7 seconds or less, fast-break or not.
