Why aren't the Magic making it this year? You'll find out.

If you're here, then it's for one reason and one reason alone. You want to know why your favorite team isn't going to make the playoffs this season.

Fourteen teams are going to go home soon and spend their summer watching the playoffs rather than being in them. For a lot of teams, the reason behind this is simple—they just didn't have enough talent. But other teams are going to miss the playoffs for reasons outside of having a poorly constructed squad. Maybe it's an injury or a series of bad injuries. Or maybe it's something else.

Ultimately, they're all going to end doing the same thing—going home.

 

All stats accurate as of 4/13/2013, and all teams chosen based on current standings.
