5 of those teams are the 6 expansion teams the league added from 1989 to 1995. That was the greatest expansion effort in NBA history and competition at the top tremendously suffered because of it. The NBA expanded way too fast....6 teams in a 7 year stretch is horrible for the league and no other professional league has EVER seen that type of expansion.

I swear they should divide the league into Varsity and junior varsity. Like them pro euro soccer league.

That way teams that suck get to have the label "JV" instead of being mixed with franchises who care about winning.

I don't know how they stack up to the competition, because I haven't investigated every team on this list, but the Cavs have been one of the more consistently good franchises over the last 25 years or so.

They've made the playoffs 14 times in the last 25 years. That means playoffs in 56-percent of the seasons since 1988. They've also had six seasons of 50+ wins in that span and 60+ wins in back-to-back seasons. Three Conference Finals appearances and one Finals appearance... Not exactly bad numbers.

Makes no sense. Meanwhile, Minnesota isn't on the list while they've been in existence for 24 years, have 8 playoff appearances (33%) and have only made it out of the first round one time in the franchise's history.

Op is a dumbass, I would also put the Heat on this list, aside from this current era they haven't done much of anything for the majority of their existence especially before Wade

Getting rid of the Raptors and Clippers would be a bad business move, since both teams are located in big markets and attract big fan bases/free agents (unfortunately for the Raptors, the management is clueless on this part)

Pacers have three titles, Nets have two. Back in the 70s ABA > NBA prior to the merger, ABA titles should count in NBA as well just like AFL titles do in NFL.

The Hawks are the most irrelevant franchise in the NBA, even the home crowd cheers for the road team for the most part. Stay mad f*ggot.
