    Were the Spurs of 2014 like the Pistons of 2004?

    Basically a team with not top tier player that won it all?

    Thanks MJ-Bulls for the picture.

    2004 pistons were not considered favourites in the nba finals.

    Oh wow you actually are being serious with this thread

    Hello, ginobli, kwahi, Duncan, Parker

    Role players who are all smart, high basketball iq, unselfish.

    That's BASICALLY a big 4 playing with arguably the best coach of all time and wade playing like a *****.

    And spo coaching the heat.

    Honestly, what did you expect? Lebron to average 100 ppg? lol

    Duncan was the 2nd leading scorer, leading rebounder, minutes leader, and the best and most impactful defender for the entire playoffs run.

    The Pistons didn't have a guy quite that important to what they were doing. The Spurs were only similar to that Pistons team in that they were both great teams. Take away Chauncey or either Wallace and they might not win it all, but they probably make it to the ECF at least. Take away Duncan and the Spurs lose to the Mavs in the opening round.

    Idk dude, pistons lost ben and it barely seemed to impact them, they lost chauncey and completely fell off the map.

    I think without his leadership, that starless team isn't nearly as good of a unit.

    We'll never know. I do think Chauncey sometimes gets jobbed on greatest PG lists, though. He was as good of a defender at the guard position as there ever has been.

    Sorry jb but this thread is a huge insult to a truly great team. Come on.

    The Spurs are a better team from top to bottom, inside and out. Larry Brown's Pistons were a D oriented team that caught a lucky break with a profoundly dysfunctional Laker team.

    There is really no comparison at all.

    If we can't recognize true greatness when it's right in front of our noses, what kind of fans are we? This Spurs team didn't just upset a favourite. It throttled (per SVG) a team completely its inferior.

    There has never been a better lesson in team building than these Spurs, who delivered convincingly at both ends of the court.

    Wait... An insult? Caught a lucky break? I'm sorry but I don't think many will agree with that.
