The heroes aren't identical, and neither are the players. If you watch Chinese games with Morphling, for instance, it's pretty apparent that ZSMJ doesn't play him as well as Burning or zhou to name the obvious two. You can see that reflected in their picking strats. Same with Zhou's Syllabear; he plays it, but Burning and ZSMJ don't. Burning gets mentioned a lot as the best carry in the world and plays almost every hard carry for his team. The exception is Sniper. Why would EHOME, who have both a tremendously knowledgeable captain and coach, have dai play Sniper if he wasn't better with the hero than his teammate?
Look at Dream and their carry player xiao8. He uses Specter a lot, and Morphling. In fact, it's hard to find replays where he doesn't play one of those two heroes. Why would Dream pick those two heroes for him so often if he weren't better with them than with Drow or Sniper?
I'm a bit ill, so I'm not sure if I'm making sense. What I'm trying to say, though, is that there are differences in the ability of players to play even simple rice-right-click heroes, and you can see that show up in the picks by the teams.
