Anyone actually watching has to admit you are right on this. Yes personnel made a huge difference but there are the intangibles as well to consider. Scheme and just overall effort at times have improved. Billups might not be as rigid in his rotations. I liked that he tried things that "Might" work. I like that he stayed the course through some tough outings. I agree with your "Process" conclusion. Players have roles and they need to continue to stay in those roles.
