Chicago and Miami have tanked.
Actual winning comes via the stripe? Lakers got crazy numbers of whistles and are about to be swept. The Clippers surely went to the line a ton more than SA, and they got swept. I would suggest that it's just as important to be able to defend without fouling a lot. That takes a well-balanced team, as does executing on offense, particularly in the clutch, and those are the teams with success while many a team with a superstar sees early exits or finishing out of the playoffs altogether.
