Default Re: A Lakers stat that might actually mean something...

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.

If you have superior scoring ability, it's defensible. Remember how those Suns teams would overwhelm opponents with an early barrage of 3s. If you believe your offense is so strong that it'd still be efficient at any pace, why not give them more shots than they'd normally have?

That philosophy with this Lakers team is beyond idiotic...
