The New Jersey Nets already put themselves in the record books this year by opening the season 0-18. At 3-34 and with 45 games remaining on the schedule the Nets have a legitimate shot at breaking the record for the worst season by a team in NBA history. Here's a look at the bottom 7:

Philadelphia 76ers.... 9-73.... 1972-73
Dallas Mavericks..... 11-71... 1992-93
Los Angeles Clippers 12-70... 1986-87
Denver Nuggets...... 12-70... 1997-98
Atlanta Hawks.........13-69... 2004-05
Houston Rockets......14-68... 1982-83
Memphis Grizzlies......14-68... 1996-97

Will they do it?

it's possible. They're at full strength now but Harris has been terrible for his standards this year. If Yi and Brook both bring their A game on the same nights - and Yi has been really coming into his own lately - they'll definitely win enough games.

That being said, they could easily get the record as well.

Allow me to start out by saying, “p90x schedule (http://www.p90xworkoutschedule.me/) is the real deal. I’ve used it and women and countless other men – just like you and me – have graduated from the P90X Extreme Home Fitness Work outs. And these fitness exercises are extreme my friend, but – so long as you keep important play for three months – you can perform great results like us!”

They are a lot different than a lot of those teams. Those teams were just plain bad, the nets are young and upcoming. I feel like in 2 years they can be fairly decent.

Harris played up to his excellent potential for the entire season last year and has had a lot of trouble fitting into the offense after losing Carter in the offseason and a serious groin injury hampered him to start the year. He's definitely better than how he's playing now.

I hope they do. I'm tired of seeing my 6ers with that record.

now imagine when they break the record and they get the 3rd or 4th pick in the lottery.. how much will that blow

they may pull the trigger on a trade to avoid this

Would be embarassing if they did but most likely 11-14 win plateau imo.

are they trading for Lebron or Kobe before the deadline:p

That would suck! :laugh:
I think they can get atleast 10 wins. They are very young and athletic but I guess what could work against them too. Still I think they can make it to the 10 W mark.

the nets are young and just plain awful. devin has disappeared and is in the mix for tradeable pieces again.

the past few trades have helped our team. quinn is meh but he gives us a better lockerroom presence for the rest of the season. alston was a standup guy but it was a contract year for him so who knows when he'd start egging on the FO to move him. najera=humphries except humphries is healthy much more than najera and provides rebounding, something the team desperately needs. shawne for sean. i doubt shawne stays on for the rest of the year considering what the FO is trying to do. they'll hang on to him possibly just because he's an expiring and that's useful.

I dont think they'll win over 10 games, but I could see them tying the record...

You're right, that's odd the site I referenced didn't have that information.

The worst of them all were the Mavs, poor Kidd got drafted into the worst team ever.

They are a young team with alot of talent. I'm sure they'll pull it together at some point. I see them winning 15 games. I don't think they are as bad as their record. They've had a decent amount of injuries as well and Harris is trying to fit back in with this team. I'm guessing they'll have a better second half.

3 wins in 37 tries with 45 to go? I don't see it happening.

daleja424
01-13-2010, 05:07 PM
they are on pace for 6-7 wins so it is certainly possible. That being said I have a hard time seeing them be that bad. They have a couple really talented players. That HAS to translate to a couple wins at some point.

The Nets lost last night to the Celtics by 24 points, though as Nets announcer Ian Eagle pointed out, the final score didn't properly represent the way the game was played. The Celtics were without Kevin Garnett and Rasheed Wallace but still managed to dominate the Nets in every aspect of the game, highlighted by outscoring New Jersey 33-13 in the second quarter and carrying a 36 point lead into half-time.

Everyone keeps mentioning the abundance of talent on the Nets, but they're simply not playing up to their capabilities. It's truly a vicious cycle with this team: the more frustrated they get with losing, the less effort they seem to be willing to put forth. They have "gotten up" for a few of the bigger games, but a lack of execution lead to the Nets losing late leads. On at least 2 occasions this year, The Nets were down by 2 pointsor less with ample time (10 or more seconds) to run a play at the end of the game, but failed to even get a shot off in time.

This team is one of the worst offensive teams in the league, and arguably the worst defensive team. They will break the record.

The nets will make history by becoming so good reall fasttttttt....


there young players are becoming better each day
Their going to get the #1 pick or top 3 picks... and hes really goooooood the #1
This years free agency their bound to get somebody... D-wade maybe, hopefully. Lebron is pushing it... really pushin it. Bosh, is still in the realm of possibility. Josh Smith? Alot of good talent...


They have the money to do all this, they jus stink this year

Honestly, at what point do we get to start calling Brook Lopez/Devin Harris/Courtney Lee/etc. overrated? I'll be the first to admit going into the season I looked at the Nets roster and it looked like a dream come true for LeBron/Bosh combo. They had the PG and the C, a defensive wing, a scoring 6th man, they just needed SF and PF and they could rock the league. I really can't comprehend this kind of production. I know about the injuries, believe me. I get all the Nets games and at the beginning of the year was watching more. But I mean you got an All-Star caliber PG and a center who people were legit debating as becoming better than Dwight Howard and that sounds like a 50-win team not the worst team in NBA history.

Worst team in the league for sure but not the worst in history. I think they pick it up and win 12-15 games at least.

There gonna end up with 7 Wins.

Our defense sucks. That's why we're losing. And our head coach has no idea what he's doing out there and seems to me like some of the players are fed up with him. Hope we don't break the record though.

overrated young talent
obviously someone has decent averages...this is the NBA someone HAS to score, any player in this league can avg. 15ppg+ as a leader on a 3 win team. You cn run your offense through oleksy pechevrov and he will average 15 ppg, but the team would win 3 games 40 games in.

01-15-2010, 11:07 AM
Nets already traded RAFER.... I'm assuming their going for the worst record this year not of all time.... JOHN WALL

I think 3 worst teams in the league should get an equal shot at the #1 lottery.
