They have 0 competition. They have the entire market of Canada....

Gotta go with the clippers. They went like 2 decades with maybe one trip to the playoffs. This despite fistfuls of high draft picks and having one of the most desirable destination cities in the league.

Dreadful. Watch them lose çp3 for nothing and blake blow out both knees before long. Its just the clipper way.

Kings, Bucks, and Wizards have my vote. Golden State sucks pretty hard too. Honorable mention to the Magic and 6ers.

Bulls are pretty poorly run.

Agree that they have a terrible history but I think they are on the right track. Doubt either of those things happen though your just hating.

Kings. They're like the Raptors in terms of having no plan, but it's worse because their ownership is constantly in shambles

I'd say Wizards are in second

Wizards. One playoff series win in like 30 years or whatever. At least the Kings were among the league's elite at some point in the last decade.
Eric Maynor is the worst basketball player I've ever seen.

Dumb post. Portland has had awful luck with injuries but always manages to regain competitiveness within a few seasons. Phoenix is always consistently competitive as well. Just because neither team has the big market luck of the Lakers doesn't mean either franchise is poorly run.

I have a feeling a lot of people will say the Magic, but we're pretty decent aside from when our Superstar is in a contract year.


Yeah, signing Lewis and Hedo for their contracts was 'decent.'
Trading for Arenas was 'decent.'
Trading Dwight for nothing while also dumping nothing, once again decent.
Oh yeah, signing Nelson to that contract after you know you're out of the running for anything... so decent!

The fact that the Wizards are so irrelevant that it takes 2 pages to mention the clear-cut worst run franchise is what makes the Wizards the worst-run franchise.

No, they don't have the "entire market of Canada". It's basically Southern Ontario and that's it.

Its probably the Clippers (Sterling *sigh*), but they are looking good this year

The Maloofs are idiots - so the kings are challengers

As are Washington...

Phoenix could have been one of the great teams, but didnt they keep selling 1st round picks because their owner was really cheap? And if im not mistaken one of those sold picks was Rajon Rondo, and another was Luol Deng?
