Excellent and very true column by Lowell Cohn.
A couple of highlights:
"No one in the Bay Area is allowed to utter the phrase "small ball" for the next decade".
"Smart’s Warriors will be a traditional NBA team, and that means they will play like other teams who actually win games as opposed to merely entertaining people. And the Warriors will play defense. What a concept".
I can't agree more with placing the emphasis on wins over entertainment. Too many fans are satisfied with losing basketball as long as it is entertaining. Personally I can't stand this viewpoint.
