Spurs are one of the most boring teams in the NBA and over the last 5 years have been the most overrated team in the league
They end Defensive possesions with rebounds, rather than being slaughtered on the glass.I can almost forgive the lack of offensive rebounding since we play a hyper defensive system. But the complete lack of toughness and heart on the defensive glass is mind blowing, and will kill us long term.

Good sound basketball isn't boring.What makes the celtics any more exciting? Kgs chest thumping and screaming on the jumbotron? Not rebounding? Idk 2 big differences.....doc isn't popovich and kg is NOT Tim Duncan sorry
Better players + better coaches = better team

But the complete lack of toughness and heart on the defensive glass is mind blowing, and will kill us long term.We're actually a much better defensive rebounding team than the Spurs.They're 23rd and we're 8th. They're not even much better on the offensive glass, we're 30th and they're 28th, though the gap is from 22.4 to 18.4 (which is bigger than the gap in our defensive rebounding numbers)
Well, one major thing is that the Spurs had very little turnover from last season, while the C's only have 4 guys returning from the team that finished the season so strong last year. Continuity can make a huge difference, and it is a big reason the Spurs operate like a well oiled machine.

I looked at their record and they have 13 wins already?Duncan and KG. Take either/or. They're pretty even overall to me.I would take Pierce over Manu.I would take Rondo over Parker.I would take Bass over Diaw and probably Sully over Blair.Lee/Terry and Danny Green seem pretty even. I do like Jackson over Green from an aggressive standpoint.Heck I see Avery and Kawhi playing the same role and I see that as a toss up.I guess I like Splitter more then Wilcox but then I love how Wilcox plays with Rondo, so I don't know.As for Doc vs Pop. I think both have their strengths. Doc is a master at calling plays and in the playoffs really seems greg at motivating. The fact his players are willing to practically die for him says a lot. I'm not convinced that Pop is far superior to Doc as an overall coach.

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.

I'm so sick of the spurs. Every year we hear how they retooled and are going to win the West only to see them flame out. Pop is a good coach, but I think he's a bit overrated like his team.
