It wasn't like 2016 kyrie where you had a 30 ppg prime talent who was just hurt in the rs
everyone tends to undervalue the importance of the supporting cast. almost no one has tony parker as a top 5 player that year, you're right about duncan and kawhi(well duncan was still pretty good), yet they're the 7th best healthy team of all time when healthy so how is that possible?
It's guys 4-9 who played so much better than guys on other teams. the 16 team was similar to a lesser extent
