They did win for the decade before scoring with Duncan. That's where i think this team should be aiming - long term, sustained levels of winning. Then you don't have to rely on any one means of improving, but rather just keep capitalizing on any means that present themselves. We're a long ways off from that kind of insulating culture that creates its own good fortunes, but you have to start somewhere, and now seems like a good time.
