Pick and roll, fast paced, tempo-setting, D'antoni basketball? At least, that's what they're getting at, although it's certainly not exactly the same. They are willing to play slower, simply because they have to. And opposing teams are doing a decent job forcing them to play slow as well.
Nash turned the ball over a shite ton too. It's a lot of pressure on the point guard in this offense. The team goes as he goes. He has the ball a lot. Defenses have been showing him a ton of different looks recently. They are pressuring him more away from the basket, help defenders are doing a better job stunting, they are trapping ball screens, they are trapping pre-ball screen, they go under screens occasionally, some teams are trying to make him give it up in the backcourt which gives them a shorter shot clock once he gets it back.
He's young and inexperienced. Nash was a great, experienced player, yet he still turned the ball over.
People talk about the turnovers too much. Frankly, I'd be shocked if he wasn't turning the ball over, considering how much it is in his possession.
