If you look at the Saints offense, it wouldn't be hard to say that Benson wants a team that can run and score. The offensive goal of that Saints' is to put up points at least 40. So I think there will be a lot of running this season. FINALLY!!!
Don't mix the the regimes.
The Heat were 23rd in Pace; Hornets 29th.
Pace is not about footspeed. It's about possession count. OReb's slow the pace, for instance.
You can be fast and slow paced. In fact, this is ideal if you are good in transition, as it limits the othem team's chances to counter your high percentage possessions with more random runs.
