The NBA Playoffs are set to get underway this weekend and teams across the league's spectrum will be battling for the title.
The Minnesota Timberwolves are in the playoffs for the first time in 14 years, while the Philadelphia 76ers are also in after a long absence. On the flip side, many of the usual suspects are top seeds again this year.
However, there has been somewhat of a youth movement this season. All of the top three seeds in the Eastern Conference are among the five youngest teams in the entire postseason, while the three title favorites - Cleveland, Golden State, and Houston - are among the four oldest teams remaining.
Here are all 16 NBA playoff teams ranked from youngest to oldest:

Portland is actually one of the youngest teams in the entire NBA, and their youth can be seen in their bench. The same can be said for Toronto, as they have a veteran starting lineup and a bench group full of players that are still on their rookie contracts.
Cleveland got younger at the trade deadline by acquiring Jordan Clarkson, Larry Nance Jr., George Hill, and Rodney Hood, but they're still the oldest team in the NBA.Back to the NBA Newsfeed
