Of course, there may be a fallacy in that discussion because it's based on three different franchises with three completely different sets of players.
The other interesting thing I found with Obie's teams is that their offenses, for all the points they score, aren't particularly good. Last year's team was team was ranked 19th in Offensive Rating (Points per 100 possessions), and this year's is only 18th. This is not an anomaly, as his highest ranked full season was the 2003 Celtics, who were 17th. His other two full seasons (2002 Boston, 2005 Philly) were both 24th.
I'm not entirely sure how to compare the teams, but if you look at the roster for the 2003 Celtics, his best defensive team, I don't see a ton of individual defensive skills there.
