Denver were lucky lebron wasn't 100% healthy. It should've been the lakers

The Lakers did not get swept by the Nuggets because LeBron was not 100% healthy, they got swept by the Nuggets because they had nobody that could slow down Nikola Jokic and they threw more people at him than any other team that faced them in the playoffs.  D'Angelo Russell playing like ass did not help either since Jamal Murray stepped up his game big time during the playoffs.  The only injury that stopped a team for advancing in the West was De'Aaron Fox's broken hand.  Plus, if Chris Paul would have stayed healthy that series would probably have gone to seven games, but the Nuggets still would have won since they were a better and deeper team plus they had home court advantage throughout the Western conference playoffs.
