It's always been a part of playing the right way, but it's hardly the way the bulk of the league has played for many years. Team offense has only supplanted individual offense as the Thibs defense has become more entrenched. Stopping the ball early and taking away a lot of straight up pick and roll, means there has to be more options exercised for anything to get done. Executing and spacing are pretty essential, and even now that requires a good mix with vets.
