And the 3, when we go 3 guards. This style of play requires a whole lot of guards.
Agreed. Watch Baylor play. Or even Okie State this season. There is very little that goes on in the paint. There is a lot of guard play and if a defense goes man and cheats out towards the arc, then they'll work it down low to the bigs for easy points. This is the same style that McD appears to be heading for. I can really see how it can drive a defense crazy. All this is assuming two very important things A) Your guards are good shooters and B) You have at least one dominant big down low to keep the defense honest. We are getting there. I think our shooting needs to be a little more consistent and Brackins needs to be more aggressive.
It's like college football and the spread. It's the way the game is, and will be, played. Really good bigs go to the NBA. Lots of guard talent out there which needs to be utilized or you will get burned by it.
