5 NBA Teams Under Most Pressure to Win 2015 Championship

No NBA team and its players enter the regular season tacitly thinking, "Look, we better not win a championship this year."

Actually, allow me to clarify: Almost no NBA team thinks in those terms. There are tankers—like Sam Hinkie's Philadelphia 76ers—that are actively trying not to win. 

Most, though, are trying to win. Some of those teams are even expected to win. Even fewer of those are staring at must-win campaigns. 

Those clubs are the ones we care about here. Not only are they capable of winning a title next year, but, for whatever reasons, their championship clocks are ticking louder than most.

If they do win, all is good.

If they don't, their clocks begin ticking louder or, worse, stop ticking at all.
