From Seth Emerson today ($$):
“I don’t know that the adage defense wins championships stands as much as it used to,” Smart said. “When you saw scores from the ’60s and the ’70s and the ’80s and you saw scores of games, it was indicative of defense, compared to now. Now, it’s like I got to play pretty good defense and I got to score a lot of points.” [Emphasis added.]
Doesn’t mean he has to like it, though.
