Frank's Take: No 'Pacing' for Andre

+
Both Vince's reported a difference in opinion between Larry (can I call you Larry?) Frank and Andre Drummond regarding Dre's strategy for playing extended minutes. Dre originally says "I didn't try to exhaust myself too quick, I knew I'd play a little bit more," and "I tried to do the little things early on. I can play 30 minutes any day. As you guys know, I play 100 miles an hour every possession. I have to learn how to slow down." Frank's replay: "He can't pace himself because if you do, then you're not going to be effective. His game is based on effort, energy and athleticism. If he's not playing with a big, big motor, that negates some of what he does. Go as hard as you can and when there's a dip, someone will go in for you. That's how you play. Some players try to play those minutes and aren't effective. In order to maximize those minutes, you go hard every minute you're on the floor."
