But, in one important way, the baddest basketball team on the planet is just like us. How, you ask? It's simple: They love Instagram!

And they've been documenting and sharing the whole thing with some pretty amazing Instagram shots -- giant humans on Segways, Kevin Love posing with a miniature doppleganger and James Harden looking like a KO'd Kimbo Slice while passed out on the team bus with mouth agape, just to name a few examples.
