I won't argue with Ernie because he's right.

I hope he's right. Finish dead last and have the highest odds of firing BC, trading Bargs and winning the number 1 pick. It's a weak draft, so to fall outside the top 3 might not be worth much anyway. Also, Shabazz won't take us out of the cellar. Draft him and tank one more year for a shot at Wiggins, or Randle.

Easily the worst. Only the Wiz have a worse record, but they were missing Nene and Wall for a while. They'll improve their record when Wall gets back.

I think LA is clearly the most underachieving team this year. They're stacked - Kobe's at a high level, Dwight's the best big (arguably now) in the game, Pau & Nash played at a very high level last year. Sure, they may turn it around, but it's a lot more shocking that the Lakers are 9-14.

Basically, we are ...you could argue Washington is worse.

Cleveland seems like a playoff team if everyone would just stay healthy, but conveniently their main players keep getting injured. I think they're tanking *shrugs*

Who I am kidding, I agree with him wholeheartedly.

I think he forgot we lead the league in moral victories. So it means we are the best.

I think it depends on what you think is worse: Team A with an ugly roster playing poorly... or Team B with a sliiiiiiiiiiiightly better looking roster but playing just as poorly as Team A.

Toronto's in that Team B category for me, sliiiiiiiiightly above Team A Washington (especially without Wall), Irving-less Cleveland, and Davis-less New Orleans (injuries). Sacramento, Detroit, and Charlotte may be in either/or. The fact that Toronto is playing as poorly as Wall-less Washington, Irving-less Cleveland, and Davis-less New Orleans might just make them the worst team in the league *shrugs*.
Good Lord, the little stoner's got a point.

Like I said, until this team wins consistently, we haven't proven anything.

We are the worst team in the NBA the way we've been playing.

Ernie isn't the only one

Andrea Bargnani to Gazzetta.it: 'I will miss at least three weeks. We are the worst team in the NBA'

With the ref Destorying us to start the year, it was bound to have a roll over affect.

Games we should have won:
Vs Indiana
@Brooklyn
Vs Utah
@Charlotte
@Detroit
