It's amazing to me that Memphis isn't on this list. In terms of small market and butts in seats.. they are near the bottom.

They've done a really good job in the last 10 years, and have put some of the more bigger cities to shame..

Some cities, like NY.. Clippers.. must be so hard to be a fan.

Miami could be on that list if you take out the last few years.

Any team thats won a Nba championship shouldn't be on here... -_- and Minnesota shouldn't be third they made the WCF in 2004 and they had a stretch where they made the playoffs almost 10 years in a row (i forgot the exact number) ... Take off the Knicks, Hawks, Nets, Cavaliers and put Nuggets, Grizzlies,Hornets,Wizards

If we're doing "all-time," Clippers are #1 because they've been irrelevant longer than any team in the history of the NBA. Bobcats can't be #1 over the Clippers because the 'Cats have only been around for a short period of time, though they have been terrible for every year except one.

Attendance is a pretty good way of guaging it.. a team that always has empty seats is pretty useless.

Miami?

They have no history, a couple rings*, no real hall of fame players until Wade gets in, retired jerseys? Buncha average players + MJ who never played for them

top 10 def

Memphis was suddenly edited in.. but they have been pretty crap in the bad years, but pretty good in the good years. Any West playoff team.. would easily be a playoff team in the East. The East is hopeless..

Teams that have never made it to the NBA Finals

Bobcats
Clippers
Grizzlies
Hornets
Timberwolves
Raptors
Nuggets

Teams that have never won a championship but made it to the NBA Finals

Nets
Suns
Jazz
Pacers
Magic
Cavaliers

We can throw out the teams that have made it to the NBA Finals twice out of the top 10 (Nets, Suns, Jazz). That leaves us with 10 Franchises that have never won a championship and either made it to the Finals once or never.

Top 10 worst NBA Franchises
1. Bobcats
2. Raptors
3. Grizzlies
4. Clippers
5. Hornets
6. Timberwolves
7. Nuggets
8. Magic
9. Cavaliers
10. Pacers
