I don’t know if it’s him being ahead of the curve, but he just values different things. We don’t crash the offensive boards, but we typically have good transition defense as a result. We recruit more skilled players for the post, which hurts our rebounding often but results in a highly efficient offense. JB will take open threes over post looks all day.
JB doesn’t build or run his team in a traditional fashion. Traditional coaches are going to value those traditional metrics like rebounding and points in the paint. JB will let them succeed in those areas and hurt them in others.
