The Philadelphia 76ers were the worst team in the NBA this season. Brett Brown started a dozen different players throughout the year. Including Evan Turner and Spencer Hawes, four Philly players averaged at least 30 minutes/night. Three sixers played over 2,200 total minutes. Philadelphia had a relatively steady lineup in 2014.
The San Antonio Spurs were the best team in the NBA this season. Gregg Popovich started seventeen different players. No Spur averaged 30 minutes/night (Tony Parker, Tim Duncan, Kawhi Leonard played 29 minutes each). Not one Spur played 2,200 total minutes. San Antonio played a very uneven lineup in 2014.
Pop and the Spurs are shattering the preconceived notion of great teams needing to find solid lineups in order to win in the NBA.
