To me, it has to do with the tempo..... there is very little to get excited about when a team consistently slows the game down and uses the whole clock in the half-court. (one of Jose's flaws, for sure, imo)

Hopefully the word on JV is good and he will be pounding up and down the court, creating opportunities for quick buckets.

Well, the one thing Casey keeps saying is that with Lowry we will be an up tempo team and the our improved defense needs to lead to more offense and that we can't allow defenses to get set. Sounds good to me. Imo, adding Lowry, Ross and even Valanciunas to the likes of Derozan should make us a much more up tempo team. Even guys like Amir and Bargs can get up and down the floor.
