The NBA Conference Semifinals are in full swing, and we've got the best eight teams of the NBA this year going for it with full force.

They dropped a couple of game in the first playoff round against the Clippers, but, the Warriors, led by dominating performances of Kevin Durant look like they are yet again on a different level.
For those looking for Lebron James this year, you'll probably need to check out the golf course or a private island with a white sand beach, because the Lakers were out of the postseason well before it got started. Here is a statistic for you...the last time that King James was not in the playoffs was 2005! That was the year that the Seattle Supersonics made the playoffs before moving to Oklahoma! Reggie Miller played his last game that year too. Maroon 5 was a new band, and the NHL was in a Lockout! A really long time ago... Maybe next year Lebron.
