Mike DeCourcy from the Sporting News noticed Plaschke's column (which we pointed out yesterday) and joined in on batting down the ridiculous notion about how supposedly Howland's system hinders talented ball players? offensive production:
The system is being misdiagnosed. Howland's teams are not going to push the pace the way Roy Williams does at North Carolina, but the Bruins are not shooting two-hand set shots. UCLA does not play slowdown basketball, although games can be lower scoring because the Bruins defense forces opponents to trudge through the shot clock.
If Farmar wants to see some numbers that should matter to him, he should check out Thursday's blog about Villanova guard Kyle Lowry. All that money stuff applies to him, too. But I won't drag you through that again. Promise.
