Key Headlines:
-Clippers and Lakers battle for top of the league entire season, stars stay relatively healthy. Load management barely used, but mostly for Lebron.
-Western Conference too strong, Spurs miss playoffs.
-Westbrook and Harden start off hot but struggle and then literally fight each other in February.
-Young Pelicans find their groove at the right time, sneak into the last playoff spot. Edge out the Warriors who eventually got healthy and played at their usual high level but too late into the season.
-Eastern Conference is trash, Southeast Division is extra trash, Miami wins division under .500.
-Lakers beat Clippers in 7 in WCF, defeat Sixers in Finals.
