Question NBA schedule....fair?

Why are all the top tier teams getting soft schedules to start the season

LA Lakers- 17 of first 21 games @ home

Celtics- 9 raod games / 12 home games (incl: NJ, NY,Indy,GS,Min, Phily,NO)

Orlando- 10 road games/ 11 home games (incl: NJ, NY,GS, Clips,Heat,Phily, Bucks)

Cavs- 9 road games /12 home games (Inc: Tor,Min, Char,Wiz,Ind, Phily,GS,NY)

Teams with the most road games:

1. Toronto 13 games on the road/ 9 home games (Inc: Suns,Dallas, SA,Den, Utah,Orlando, Cleveland)

2. Memphis Memphis 12 road games/ 9 home games( Inc: Denver, Lakers,Suns,Utah,Houston)

Why is it that the best teams in the league get the much easier schedule the first month of the season?? Should they not be the ones tested. Is it that they've earned the easier schedule? I know it evens out in the end but to me it seems a little setup,no?
