Last time we spoke we were amid the most pivotal month if the season. Now we are after the entire NBA season, and the playoff teams have finally set.

Let’s take a quick review of the most critical moves or news that happened in the last month of the season — news like historical records, injuries, and current fan favorites missing playoffs. There has been a lot of different things that happened over the past month of the season that is very important to playoffs.

8. Pistons (41-41)    8. Clippers (48-34)

After looking at where each team stands heading into the playoffs, we will now turn our attention to the teams with something lost.

Each of these teams has something or someone to lose if they haven’t already, and we will get into each one.

First, the defending champions Golden State Warriors. They could lose the chance at becoming the first team since Shaq and Kobe’s 2000-02 Lakers to get a three-peat. They could also lose important players like Kevin Durant, DeMarcus Cousins, and Klay Thompson.

Milwaukee has already lost key players like Malcolm Brogdon and Pau Gasol with a hopeful return at some point in the playoffs. Nikola Mirotic and Tony Snell are also hoping to be ready as they all sat in Wednesday nights finale. Don’t forget that Eric Bledsoe will be an unrestricted free agent as well.

The Raptors and Celtics likely have one chance to get the title in the playoffs as they could both lose their All-Stars, Kawhi Leonard (TOR) and Kyrie Irving (BOS). Both Leonard and Irving will both be free agents this summer. You can also add the Sixers’ Jimmy Butler and Nets’ D’Angelo Russell to the free agency list and loses that could hurt their team next season.

Let’s pay close attention to the playoffs and see how far each of these guys can take their teams and don’t forget to tune into the NBA playoffs on Saturday and see if there’s anyone that can take down the Warriors. Also, continue to wait for our predictions on the playoffs and where each team will take themselves. If you want to talk about why I think Russell Westbrook is better than Steph Curry and many more point guards, at me on twitter @rahimm8690 and let’s continue this conversation.
