1. Which team that made the playoffs last season, will miss the playoffs this season?

Haslam - Atlanta Hawks- Milwaukee and Boston are the obvious choices here but I think Atlanta losing Josh Smith will hurt them more than they realize.  I also see both the Cavs and the Wizards as strong contenders to push Atlanta out.

L. McDermott - It’s the Celtics hands down. They are in full tank mode and should have one of the worst records in the league this year.

R. McDermott - The Bucks.

Newman - Boston.  They have traded everyone they had on their roster away besides Rondo.  They’ll definitely be a team that could wind up with Andrew Wiggins.  Kinda ironic that Rondo was probably in trade talks the most before the deadline and now he’s the only guy remaining.

Anderson - Milwaukee Bucks. They keep making me scratch my head at their decisions. They barely made it last year, and with the Cavs and Bobcats adding pieces, they’re in danger.

Powers - It’s gotta be Boston. They traded basically everything to build around Rondo and if they don’t get Wiggins out of this deal, Rondo might be ready to leave town. Boston will be WAY out of the playoffs.
