NBA Teams Facing Franchise-Defining Offseasons

Paul Pierce and the Boston Celtics are facing a franchise-defining offseason, but they aren't the only ones.

While the 2013 offseason is important for bottom-feeders attempting to move into the realm of respectability and for contenders hoping to add those final pieces, it's not necessarily a summer that can either make or break teams in those categories. 

For seven organizations, this offseason is a franchise-defining one. The next few months will both determine the immediate success of the team in question and have a significant impact on the long-term outlook. 

Some of these squads are trying to make a single decision, or waiting on a single decision for that matter. But that one choice will set the team down an inescapable track.
