The NBA playoffs will begin on April 13, and the regular season concludes on April 10. This year’s playoffs will have several main story lines. The returning champs, the Warriors, have locked up the one seed in the Western Conference. The Bucks have gained the best record in the league, and have the one seed in the Eastern Conference.

For the first time since 2004-2005 season, LeBron James did not make the playoffs, with a team riddled with dysfunction in the Lakers. Also, the Heat and Mavericks missed, with both carrying the retiring legends in Dirk Nowitzki and Dwayne Wade.

The Rockets and Celtics will look to take that final step that they could not make last year, and they both will be attempting this from the 4th seed in their respective conferences. Everyone is still chasing the Warriors though, as they have won 3 of the last 4 finals. They definitely will be given their best shot from every team they face, as it seems every team has a grudge against them.

This year’s playoffs should be interesting, and it will be a great to see the way it turns out this year.
