So, to win, do everything better than your opponent?

Excellent. You, my friend, have solved the unsolvable game.

I think the best (and simplest) formula for winning is breaking down every aspect of the game and performing each at a higher level than your opponent.

The saying "offense wins glory, defense wins games, rebounding wins championships" is huge BS. The Warriors led the league in rebounding (by a decent margin as well) a couple years ago and had a terrible record. Defense is not the answer as well, as old Cavalier teams fielded some of the most anemic games ever (scoring-wise) and were not good teams. Offense is not the secret either, as the old Warriors (Run TMC) would bomb on teams, but never succeed in the playoffs.

True winning teams are adept in all aspects of the game. Not only do they have no real weakness, they are above-average in most or all aspects.

I think the real key to success for a team is what I like to call "evolved balance," meaning having respect for each aspect of the game. Like before, not just being content w/ being decent in all areas, but striving to be good in all areas. This means being successful in shot selection, maintaining possession, offensive and defensive rebounding, individual and team defense, ball movement, etc. etc.

There is no single magical aspect to guarantee success, it comes from a balance.

Ah yes, it may be, but balance consists of all facets.

Find simplicity through complication, grasshopper :D
