      There is a weak general dependence of pace on defense. Good defense
      has a slight tendency to also slow pace. It's not a guarantee by any
      means. I've always felt that teams should run more with Mutombo in
      the lineup to avoid having to pass him the ball in the halfcourt.

      In contrast to the way the old Celtics did it with Russell. They ran
      with the shot blocker in there.

      How much of a player's performance is skill vs the strategy of his
      coaching staff? It's particularly difficult to say with specialists
      like Mutombo.
