While Sloan doesnt like the team to compete in a running game with teams like the Suns or Warriors of the past, he has always emphasized pushing the ball up the floor whenever there is a chance. you can even see him in games often urging his PG to push the ball up quickly. Even recently he has said that unless we rebound the ball well it is difficult to get out and push the tempo. I dont think Deron has to convince Sloan to run more. I am guessing Deron will blame the rebounding as the reason for not running more.
