I'm going to go with...

Toronto
Minnesota
Washington
Indiana

Didn't really want to be put Indy on there. The other 3 I'm certain will have no chance at postseason play. Indy's right in there with Phoenix, Golden State, Sacramento, Detroit, and Cleveland as teams I would consider "unlikely" to make the playoffs but still have an outside shot.

I think Philly, New Jersey, New York, Memphis, NOLA, and the Clipps will all be in contention for the final playoff spots in their respective conferences. And obviously, I think Houston is a guaranteed playoff team even without Yao Ming. But I'm a Houston fan. Sue me.

Default Re: Name FOUR teams you GUARANTEE will NOT make the playoffs this season

i wouldnt bet against the Nets. sure, they stunk it up last season. but imo they were tanking and they have alot of young talent, and are talented enough to make the playoffs.

Devin - Farmar - Lee - Williams - Outlaw - Favors - Lopez etc

they may not make the playoffs afterall, but i think they'll have a good run and i wouldnt put them on MY guarenteed list. but that's just me.

T'Wolves
Golden State
New Orleans
Washington

Wow, a lot of people picked the Thunder on last years thread. Looks like they proved everyone wrong.

Arrow Re: Name FOUR teams you GUARANTEE will NOT make the playoffs this season

wizards starting to pop up more often here... I had high expectations for them last year but that obviously didn't pan out.

Backcourt of John Wall and Gilbert Arenas with Kirk Hinrich and Nick Young in support

Josh Howard and Al Thornton at the 3

Some combo of Blatche, Yi, McGee up front with some very servicable guys like Oberto and Armstrong in support.

Some guys I'm forgetting too...

Flip Saunders coaching and my favorite assistant coach in the league Sam I Am Cassell...

I like the Wizards to make the playoffs. I said it.
