Every move DL made that offseason took the team in a more defensive, tighter checking direction.
Lombardi knew what he was getting with Crawford, and he knew what he was getting with Murray. They're polar opposites. Clearly DL made a conscious decision to take the team in a new direction in terms of playing style.
I think a lot of it had to do with the polar opposites in demeanor between the two coaches more than changing the system. The Kings were going to have to learn to play some team defense at some point. Didn't matter who the coach was.
