The 2012 NBA season has come and passed, with the Miami Heat taking home the title and LeBron James winning both regular season and Finals MVP. The 2012 offseason, meanwhile, is in full swing as contenders have grown stronger and big names have shocked the world.

The fact of the matter is, it's not about those paper facts. Who won in 2012 holds no value as we approach 2013. Who received what type of cash during the offseason, meanwhile, bares no meaning as to what will transpire once the season begins.

So how will the postseason lay out? Which teams will shock us and what franchise will miss out on the NBA's most important time of the year?
