The 5 Worst NBA Teams Since Michael Jordan Retired
It’s no secret that a losing record is equated with, well, being the worst. But is there more to measuring success than a win-loss record? Reseachers at Wages of Wins believe so. They developed an economics-based approach to gauging success, and looked at regular season winning percentage, the number of playoff home games, and coaching changes to rank the five worst NBA franchises in the past 15 years. Who are they? Read on to find out.
5. Toronto Raptors
The Raptors have won 33 games so far this season, which is promising, considering they’ve only cracked the 0.500 mark four times in their history — and that the franchise record for most games won in a season is only 47. The team has undergone a total of six coaching changes, and only hosted 13 home playoff games since being founded in 1995. Still, the remainder of this season could help change the team’s history, as they currently sit atop the standings in the Atlantic Division.
