How much running do you think we're going to do this year?

Let me preface this by saying that if the Seven Seconds or Less era is over, that's not necessarily a bad thing. My question isn't whether you all think it's a good idea for the Knicks to slow down the pace; I just want to know if you think they're going to. I personally would love to see D'Antoni win a championship someday by sticking to his coaching guns, but with the Knicks' roster constructed the way it currently is, I'm not sure I see it happening. We all know that Melo has a tendency to seek out isolation situations, (even, it seems, when the play is not drawn up that way). And if the Knicks don't get Extra E back (or even if they do), I'm not sure they have the kind of sharpshooters on the perimeter that the SSOL offense requires.

In addition to concerns about personnel, I have this vague memory that during past off-seasons, D'Antoni would dedicate considerable practice time solely to conditioning. He'd run them constantly until he was sure they were in good enough shape that they could run up and down the court for 48 minutes and not get tired. Did I imagine this? If not, with this shortened preseason, I assume there's no time for that sort of thing. So what do you all think. Is the Seven Seconds or Less era of New York Knicks basketball officially over?
