But anyone who's ever played sports knows that being there and having done that, helps a player get set in the mental state which allows him to perform at the top of his ability. Obviously though some inexperienced players can sill focus in the heat of the playoffs. Like the way an open jump shot is easier, but some players still make contested ones.
There's a big difference between underlying causes and the outcomes that they produce.
You're saying that the impact of skill is more quantifiable than experience. This isn't true. All you've done is describe results, and explained them as being the result of skill.
On top of that, most of your arguments are anecdotal.
You may have a point that it's overrated, but there's no way experience isn't a factor. You're the one claiming that experience has zero value, so the burden of proof should be on you.

It's an opinion yeh, but one that can easily be made from watching a number of Lillard games.
If Ross didn't get in foul trouble, then I doubt Salmons would get as many minutes as he did anyway. He wasn't in the game in the last quarter at all so Casey wasn't riding Salmons when it mattered most. You can make a different argument that Ross should've been in there over Vasquez, although Vasquez was playing well offensively.
