The English long bow was dominant. Let's equip our military with them. Short point: can't move seamlessly from what has worked to what will. Btw, you haven't offered sufficient evidence to bolster the claim that uptempo worked.
You forgot the horses and bayonets.
When they asked Dwight about what he thought...his eyes blew up real wide and said "110 points, huh?" He made a comment about how the team is old and they're going to have to all get into shape, including him. If this hire was primarily to retain Dwight, forget convincing the fans...you're going to have to convince Dwight himself.
I'm all for watching fun n gun basketball, but know your personnel. As a big guy, you're anchoring the D and if you get a stop or a defensive rebound, there's the kick out and I'm sure there will be a majority of times that Dwight doesn't even touch the ball heading down. Even if he touches it and you're promoting the 3 ball, those shots, if not made, normally come off hot off the rim and everybody has seen our defensive transition woes. A large part of that is cause we're older.
