The thing about this team is that NO ONE is in their prime. Nash is old and hasn't been healthy, Pau is a shell of himself, Dwight isn't the same Dwight this season, and Kobe has killed us defensively. Then you look at the role players and either they aren't good enough to make a significant impact (like 2011 Odom) or they are past their prime.
How can you expect to win in this league when not a single player in your roster is playing at their best level? It doesn't happen
Heat: LeBron possibly having a top 3 season ever, Wade playing better than last year, loads of role players hitting 3s at a high rate
Thunder: Durant+Westbrook in their prime
Spurs: Parker having his best season, role players always killing it for this team
Go down the list for all the best teams they all have players either in their prime or on the cusp. Not only do we not have that, we don't have young+athletic players to keep up with teams that punish our best players for being old and slow. And the real deal killer is that we don't have a good defensive system in place like the Celtics did so we really have no clue what we're doing on that end. Just too many flaws
