Besides wins and losses...

Is it simply chemistry? I mean looking at the roster and coaching they are incredibly similar; however, things just look easy for the spurs. While we look like trash.

Chemistry....right now we really only have 4-5 guys who played on last years team? the rest are all new or havent been in the system long enough....the C's havent learned to play like a team yet and guys still don't really know their roles.

once they do, this team will be just as good IMO

Not even close, Doc is not in the same league as Pop.

I would say coaching. Nothing against Doc however; Greg Popovich is all time great. He is great at getting best out of personnel. Meanwhile, Doc is slow to integrate new players into his system. Jason Terry talent is being wasted. And Jeff Green regressed since his OKC days. Maybe if Doc were to take a page out of Popovich book and tries adjusted the system instead of forcing the system onto the players...we can get more out of Lee, Green, and Terry.

Overall a comparison between the Spurs and pretty much anyone else is kind of unfair.  I like Doc, feel he is a top 5 coach, but Popovich is on a completely different level.

Manu Ginobli, great coaching, and continuity. Gino, Parkour, Duncan, Bonner, Blair, Splitter, Jackson, et al, they've all been doing their thing for years.

  I thought the answer was "we've had more recent playoff success than them".

Over the course of the past five seasons the Celtics have won 11 playoff series while the Spurs have won 5.

I think Spurs fans should be asking themselves; "why can't we be more like the Celtics?"

I'd say he is talking about this year.  Every year is different.  For instance, he spoke of roster similarities.  The Celtics roster this year has a lot of turnover.  Context clues, my friend, context clues.

Or maybe that was a sarcastic response to a poster asking a genuine question.  That wouldn't be your style though.

Better players, coaching, and management on the Spurs side.
