"The Secret of basketball is that its not about stats, It's about much more than that. You have to sacrifice your numbers and work with the team. Isiah and the pistons knew this if you looked at there stats they are not very impressive but they won games. The pistons knew how to win , they won games because the teams sacrificed points for each other and that's what they needed to do. If Kobe or MJ knew this right away their teams would have won more rings. Same with GP, VC or Carmelo knew this they would have won rings in their primes."
