13 Worst NBA Teams of All Time

With the 2011-12 NBA season now a little more than two-thirds of the way completed, it’s becoming fairly obvious which teams are the cream of the crop, and which teams are at the bottom of the barrel. And for the Charlotte Bobcats, unfortunately, it’s becoming fairly obvious that they are going to go down as one of the worst teams in the history of the NBA.

How bad are they? Well, as of Tuesday morning, March 20, the Bobcats sit at just 7-37 (.159) with a point differential of -13.1. So they’re not just losing. They’re getting blown away.

So to celebrate the potentially historic awfulness of the 2011-12 Charlotte Bobcats (yes, I like to celebrate awfulness), I thought, let’s do a list of the 13 worst teams in NBA history.

Why 13? Because after 13 there’s like a 9-way tie that’s just too hard to call. Plus, 13 is an unlucky number that suits these unlucky teams.
