Has Duncan become a better player after the Spurs beat the Pistons? Has Kobe become any better after that 2010 Finals? If anything, it was Garnett's big loss. He would have a reputation of a winner now, had Boston won that title.
Would Steve Nash be a better player if not for Horry's hipcheck that game?
