One unique thing about the 1993 UNC team was the trust factor, in both directions.
It's not uncommon to hear stories about players willing to run through walls for their coaches. But sometimes, accusations fly that the coach has lost it, that he's out of touch with today's game, today's players, today's something. Some wondered whether Smith, a living legend with a building named after him, was being left behind by the way the game was being played in the 1990s.
But with the photos he passed out, Smith dangled a carrot in front of the players, and the players' willingness to change their preseason workouts showed their absolute faith that Smith would somehow lead them to the carrot in the end.
