    Cursed with bad management and bad decision makers.

    I guess. I feel like most of the time it's not a matter of being cursed or unfortunate, but just the team/organization that has planned better, made better decisions and put together a better staff to implement such decisions comes out on top.

    I'm not a strong believer in luck, and that things just happen out of complete happenstance. To me, the teams that have success have continually put themselves in the right situations and have better prepared themselves for success. To me it's no coincidence that over the past 30 years, what only 8 different teams have won an NBA title. They're not just the lucky teams.

    ok..i'm going out on a limb here because i know the case can be made for many many teams but the knicks have to be considered the worst run NBA franchise and except for the pat riley years and the immediate aftermath (ie the time Van Gundy inherited) the knicks have been victims of terrible GMs and coaching so the curse really is not from a bball standpoint...it is a curse of people owning the team and hiring others to run the team that have no ideas about the sport other than filling seats in MSG

    Had to vote for the Clips overall, but I think my Nugs are not far behind, at least in recent years. 3 consecutive seasons with 3 key players missing the entire season (Voshon Lenard, then Nene, then K-Mart, then Nene again. This current season is the first time in ages the Nuggets have had a consistently healthy roster for most of the season (although they're a little banged up now).

    I'd say the Clippers are the most cursed, but the Kings have it pretty bad too...we haven't won a championship since 1951...68 years and counting...

    I don't think a team that has won multiple titles in the last 20 years is cursed.

    The Grizzlies deserve an honourable mention. But really it's because of Michael Heisley. Stupidest owner in professional sport, hands down. So that's no curse, that's just the tragedy of having a meddling moron involved in the game.

    That's why it's only an honorary title for now. But those 13 years have been pretty pathetic.

    The clippers. They can have a pretty decent team and still miss the playoffs
    Miami Heat:......Fill the roster out with some decent signings

    New Orleans Saints: 9-3
    First in NFC South. 3rd seed
