Well, another thing...you can't just decide you're going to play defense like the Spurs or Pistons. You need a group of athletes that are adept at it.

The Pistons length and quickness is scary. On the other hand, Minnesota hasn't had a group of outstanding defenders during these recent seasons. In 2004, when Minnesota was the number one seed in the west, it was hard to imagine that they'd beat the Lakers with defenders like Sprewell, Cassell, or Olowokandi. And of course, they didn't.
