You could also ask what seperates average teams from good teams, or bad teams from average teams. It's obviously a combination of many things that makes a team bad, average, good, or great.

Stupid thread.

I agree with this, you have to be very versatile, because in the playoffs your going to have to play many different ways.

Which is the reason why the Rockets won't go very far..............can't play with the Suns.

Versatility will kill the Rockets.

Dallas and SA are great in these areas

I agree there is more than 1 thing that seperates great from good teams.But, he asked for one, so what is the point of putting 2?
Or just pick the most improtant 1?
Just a suggestion.

You guys are all wrong.

In a league where the best and the worst are seperated by a slim margin, as shown by the many times elite teams lose, there is one thing that matters above all:

MENTAL TOUGHNESS, the "do or die philosphy"

"300 Spartans" ring a bell?

nobody in this thread is wrong, because there are MANY different things that seperate good teams from great teams, mental toughness is just one of them.
