Breaking News: The NBA is a lot faster

Is anyone else tired of hearing "journalists" ask the '09 rooks how the NBA is different from college? (?)

Don't we know the rote answer by now? -- "The NBA is a lot faster." Yes. Tis. Thank you. Move on. 

So, when this Summer League donkey asked J. Flynn, "What have you noticed that's different in NBA than what you are used to playing in college?" I was pleasantly surprised when Flynn answered: 

"it's so much space. I think that's one thing in college, you get a lot of guys that can just sit in the lane, play zone. Here in the NBA it's like the lane is wide open; it's more space out there so it's more opportunities to create, off the bounce." 

That lane will get filled, to some degree, with the long arms and agile minds of Western Conference vets when the season's first whistle blows in earnest, so J. Flynn will have less space to create and more opportunity for turnovers. Nonetheless, the analytics are a welcome change of pace from the nonsensical poetics and Dakotan wisdom of our previous squad.
