It may be a roster like none different.

The Los Angeles Lakers have 4 of the NBA’s high seven energetic scorers. The high three main energetic rebounders. Three of the highest 4 energetic leaders in assists. Three of the highest 5 in blocks. Three of the highest 5 in wins. Four of the highest six in steals. They might even have 5 Olympic gold medalists on the ground without delay and one other on the bench.


The final shot James took in the 2020-21 common season was a made layup with 6:41 left in the season finale towards New Orleans, giving him 25 factors. He was subbed out six seconds later and didn’t return. The significance was this: It gave James a scoring common of 25.02 factors for the season — extending his file streak of 25-point-average seasons to 17 in a row. Had he not gotten that ultimate basket, he’d have averaged 24.98 factors and (technically, anyway) the streak would have ended.


Utah set an NBA file final season by averaging 16.7 made 3-pointers per recreation. That means the highest seven entries on that listing in NBA historical past are all stuffed by West groups: Houston (16.1 in 2018-19), Portland (15.7 final season), Houston (15.6 in 2019-20), Houston (15.3 in 2017-18), Dallas (15.1 in 2019-20) and Golden State (14.6 final season).


The champs may hail from Milwaukee and the Eastern Conference, but the Western Conference — once more — gained the head-to-head towards the opposite aspect of the league final season. West groups gained 54% of their video games towards the East. It marked the twelfth straight season and twenty first time in the final 22 years that the West held a edge over the East.
