and Defense too...
Where Jon Wertheim (one of the finest sports writers and people out there) may have stumbled upon the Beasley Principle.
"We suspect that if sports were structured differently, defense might be perceived differently. Imagine if every game started not at 0-0 but with a score of, say, 25-25, and teams could have points deducted from that total. It stands to reason that the principles of loss aversion might kick in and inspire better defense."
This article got me thinking that I'm glad we have a guy like this Coaching our team.
"Adelman's big focus in practice today was getting Twolves to work on halfcourt offense. Relying too much on pick-and-rolls." --Jon Krawczynski
"This team didn't defend very well the last couple of years ... It was easy to get their attention that things had to improve." --Rick Adelman
