We need shooters for run and gun. We don't have consistent shooters.

not too concerned with offence.... We need a swarming defensive style..... active, aggressive and physical defense.

If you can't rebound you can't run. Half court.

Running can only take you so far. A half court team should be the goal.

Both. You want to start your offense on the defensive end and focus on getting stops. Fortunately, we have the personnel to be a very good transition team if we can improve on the defense (a new centre).

If you feel like you can't run on the break, then you need to try to outwork the other team to the other end of the floor and try to create and exploit mismatches.

Then it comes down to the halfcourt, where good ball movement is key. Requires a good point guard, solid pick and roll bigs, and guys who can create their own shot.

I think we want to have a balanced, athletic offense, nothing like Mike D'Antoni's though.

The main thing is to focus on the defense.

How was NY a run and gun team. They were pick n' roll, with maybe one of the best half court offenders in the league in Melo. Don't sterotype the mustache.

the discussion had turned to defense and ny sucks. offensively they'll run every chance they get and if that fails they rely on the pick and roll - having amare and melo does't hurt. every team has some form of the pick and roll - can't run every time.

How are we expecting to run when we have one of the worst three point shooting team in the league.

Go get DAL midget PG J.J. Barea who's a FA after the year. He toasted the Lakers by himself in the 4th quarter.

and the connection is? Run and gun doesn't necessarily mean phoenix style basketball. It just means you're looking to push the ball and try to catch defenses unprepared. Obviously, you need to get stops, it's impossible to run without tons of defensive rebounds.

The current set of players can only play a running style, half court doesn't suit us at all. We have no post players, we have nobody capable of breaking defenses off the dribble, so we're basically stuck whenever defenses are set.

If the question is, should Colangelo target players suited to a halfcourt style as opposed to the running game, that's a legitimate question. Saying that we should play half-court with the current crop of players is just silly, we'd be scoring in the low 90s.
