Young players tend toward inconsistency. Teams made of young players therefore tend toward inconsistency.

As they become veterans, they (the good ones, anyway) become more consistent across time.

Richards and Carter are doing a lot of damage for this team this year, and they are doing it with better consistency. They weren't ready to do that last year, and certainly not the year before.

I guess one could make the same argument about the third year head coach.

At any rate, I think they are far less likely to swoon this year because they have more consistency at centerice.
