players understanding their roles. If you look at all the great teams, players knew what they were expected to do and did just that. Ben wallace wasn't shooting jumpshots, he didn't expect plays run for him and bowen never tried to create plays.

Assuming you have all the peices/players/roles you need to make a great team..

- Coaching -- For example.. I think the Mavs are a faily balanced team.. but they lack some important pieces.. this is a big part of why I don't think they will win the championship.. especially with Avery as coach. Now.. if you had Phil Jackson rather than Avery.. I think he could do it. This team wouldn't be a repeat championship winner even with Phil.. but I think he could get at least one out of them.

- Star power -- a popular player and or coach.. the NBA is a lot about popularity. Star players get calls non-stars don't.

consistently solid D.
over time it results in the opponent not looking forward to playing you and, thereby, the battle is half-won.

There are a lot of things that seperate good teams from great teams. Same with good teams from bad teams and bad teams from horrible teams. Nearly everything mentioned in this topic plays a role. And if it's the NBA finals where both teams have a lot of those qualities, usually one thing will end up being the x factor. Like a young team might choke against a more experienced team. Or it could be the fact that one team plays D and the other doesn't play D so well. Not sure if what I'm saying makes sense but it's true. But you can't have just one of the qualities mentioned in this topic and expect to go far. It's whatever team has the best combination of all of these qualities IMO.

Coaching and talent. Everything else is a result of having these 2 things.

defensive intent and tenacity at all times.




if the Suns win one, analysis will be needed, but they have the discipline to work on their offense methodically and make sure everything works well night in and night out.


championship caliber teams never quit on any game, never make excuses, and always work hard for everything and never get tired of it.

1 thing that separates good teams from great teams is that great teams can finish out games.
