How far back, and how much is the difference? Is this just a remarkable artifact of variance? I can't think of a logical explanation for this other than the salary thing, but the salary seems to have no relationship to it, and of course before the salary cap salary didn't matter at all.

This smacks of a remarkable coincidence that is nevertheless a coincidence. Or, perhaps a non-causative correlation, such as a team's success causing less roster turnover which keeps homegrown players around longer, but without those players necessarily being part of the reason for that success.
