I have and I'd rather watch a college game any day of the week.

a-freagin-men..  NBA style offense was one of the things that drove me nuts about FCTC's "weave n heave".. 4 players standing around watching 1 guy try to go one on one "gotta showcase my skillz" time and no D.  I know it's rare nowadays, but I miss watching a motion O.

I like them both for the different types of basketball and players.  You watch the NBA for how absurdly good the players are and you watch college to see how not so good players come together and build winning teams.

I'm going to assume you haven't watched the NBA in a long time? The isolation, one-on-one style of the 90's went away a long time ago. The 2015 Spurs (the year the won the title?) were an amazing offensive basketball team. If someone asked me to teach them offensive basketball I would just put in a tape of what they did to the Heat in the Finals. Have you watched the Warriors, Celtics, etc.? 

Also, NBA defenses are infinitely more sophisticated than college defenses. This mantra that NBA team don't play defense has always been a fallacy. 

Wrong thread, but figured we'd need some help to get to 1,000 pages...

Just curious, other than 1 Elite Eight run, what has Bennett done or won that Crean didn't also do at IU? What is his draw for all of you? A handful of conference titles (we already know no one at IU cares about those) and mostly disappointing tournament runs?

If Tom Crean had done this at Iowa or Penn St. then it would be impressive.  Bennett has accomplished these things at schools that have very little history and resources that pale in comparison to IU.

By that logic his "down" years must be roughly the same as his "good" years. The year he won Nat'l COY, he went 1-1 in the tournament as well.

No his down years are 7th seeds and 5th in conference. And he still goes to the NCAAs. 

His up years are top 2 seeds. 

It took coach K like 12 years to get past the sweet sixteen more than once. 

Winning is more about getting to the tourney every year as a high seed. Which Bennett does
