I am going with the Phoenix Suns to have a slight advantage over the Clippers....

The Clippers never really had any MAJOR stars on the team.

The Suns HAVE HAD TONS and cant win a title.

One Finals appearence does not cut it.

Plus they will go down as the only team Shaq has played for that did not go to the playoffs*






*Shaq did not make the playoffs in his rookie year due to a tie breaker.

Clips no matter what they do or who they sign or draft it never works out I think it started to get bad after they drafted Darius Miles. I thought they were gonna be good after adding Z.Randolph to that phenomenal roster but whats a good team without chemistry.

thats why they should move,especially to seattle.they still have the rights so you assume its name and thus history in turn you make yourself more prestigious and you have many hungry sonics fans waiting for its return(bigger fanbase) and no longer living in the shadow of anybody

Clippers easily, but I think everybody forgets the Bucks. They haven't done anything in a long time, with the exception of 2001 when they went to the ECF. Made the playoffs only twice in the 90s, 4 times this decade, but 3 of those had 1st round exits. Were decent in the 80s, but never got to the finals.

I agree with you about the Clippers. You know the sad thing about the Bucks is they have had a lot of really good players and could never take advantage of it.

Clips, Griz, Bobcats

Clips is a given
Griz because they are like the Pittsburgh Pirates of the MLB
Bobcats because they have interior issues all the time and they havent been able to muster up anything significant yet organization wise.

Honourable mentions:
Bucks - always injury prone guys and base their team around Michael Redd....who they got for Ray Allen.....Redd for Allen RLY?
G-State - I note them for their more current era and the lack of success in that organization. Too many interior problems as well. Also no defense over numerous season is questionable. lol

Donald Sterling=Worst NBA owner to ever have control of ballers. Didn't they have 3 1st round picks consecutive years and still don't find a way to win. Odom,Brand,Olowakandi,A.Miller,C.Butler?
Good players that were cursed under this guy.

04-11-2009, 08:45 PM
Clippers seem to have wasted the most talent and picks of any team since I've been a season ticket holder here in Memphis for the past 8 years.
I think the Grizz had the worst winning percentage of active teams, but remember we went to the (winless) playoffs 3 years in a row only the 3rd year of their transfer here. NOBODY saw that coming. We are definitely in a rebuilding mode around an extremely talented young core of 4......so we here in Memphis have a lot of expectations. We have won 5 of the last 7 games and could have been 7 of 7 with a little love from the NBA refs.......so back to the question.....gotta be the Clippers.

Are you stupid? The Bobcats FRANCHISE has only been around for 4 years. They were on the brink of making the playoffs this year. They probably would have if Raja Bell hadn't been hurt.
