Out of the top 7 teams that made the playoffs in the East last season, which team if any won't make it back to the playoffs in 08/09?

Boston
Detroit
Cleveland
Toronto
Philadelphia
Orlando
Washington

They will all make it. Atlanta will be the odd one out

They are all just about guaranteed to make the playoffs. Only way is if some other teams over achieve and we have 9 or 10 teams above 500 which i dont see.

Atlanta is young and good. Joe johnson is right there behind Kobe and Wade at the small forward position. Josh smith is good and so is Bibby.

I think that Washington is overated and will be odd man out. or maybe the Raptors trade will backfire.

I think Cleveland has better chance of missing out

I think all these teams make it for sure but if i had tp pick its washington because they have the worst team of those on this list.

Washington. LIke MileHighChamp. It's not so much Washington wont make, but it's more so that they're the worst on the list.

this is tough also. i chose Cavs. i dont think the Cavs have done much to surround Lebron. all they did was resign their own guys. i think if the wizards are healthy they will be good. and the sixers are so much better with brand

From that list, my best guess would be Atlanta.

Kobe isn't a small forward... nor is Wade. nor is JJ...

I think the Wiz will be out

I would Say ATL for sure but since i's not on the list I'll say Toronto/Cleveland

Clevland didn't improve that much from the past season so IDK if they can still compete at a level of earning the 3rd,4th, or 5th spot But I can see them slipping down to the low 7 or 8

Toronto may have gotten JO but the fact is they no longer have T.J, Jose never played Starter minutes and JO isn't guaranteed to play healthy for a full season

So I think Toronto might not make it

I voted Washington.

however, if joe dumars does as he says and completely changes the team..then I wouldn't be surprised if they don't make the playoffs since the East is a getting alot stronger. i.e. bobcats, sixers, bucks..

I think all of them will make it, although I dont get why u didnt put ATL on the list, cause fact of the matter is even if they were below 500, they still made the playoffs... I dont get why people are saying the wizards wont make it... i mean they kept all of there core guys and with a healthy gilbert arenas coming back i dont see why they would be better... keep in mind they basically lost about 20-30 pts a night because arenas was injured, and they still made the playoffs... i guess it might be a chemistry issue, but i think they will be better than last year IF they stay healthy...

I chose Washington, but if ATL was on there, then I would say ATL. If ATL loses J.Smith then they are ****ed for years to come.
