The thunder lost to the Minnesota Timberwolves today and the score was 129- 87. Do you remember a team that was worst overall than this?

The 1972-73 Philadelphia 76ers finished 9-73.

I think the Thunder are on pace to beat it by maybe 2.

Still though, Seattle wasn't this bad last year. How does this much of a collapse happen in one season? That team is stunningly dysfunctional right now.

Oklahoma City Thunder is on the 6th worst pace in NBA history (through 36 games). Behind the 97-98 Denver Nuggets (2-34), 93-94 Dallas Mavericks (2-34), 70-71 Cleveland Cavaliers (2-34), 92-93 Dallas Mavericks (3-33), 72-73 76'ERS (3-33), 88-89 Miami Heat (4-32) and then OKC Thunder (5-31)

See... they're upholding a nice solid legacy of crappiness.

They're just deep traditionalists, that's all.

I read this on ESPN boards and wondered WTH?

the jerseys are terrible.

however, how could you leave the 2003-04 orlando magic off your worst nba teams ever list?? they were 1-18 after 20 games, finished 21-61, and their leading scorer was tracy mcgrady with 28.0 ppg.

Anyway, through Pythagoreans expectation (MORE ACCURATE THAN WINNING PERCENTAGE MULTIPLY BY 82) is to win 18-19 games

It's the curse of OKC. Should have stayed in Seattle.

This all started when they announced the crappy name.

Then it continued with the crappy colors.

Then the crappy logo.

Now they are having a crappy season.

It's not a curse. It's called having Durant being your only starting caliber player.

Westbrook has no court vision, and can't hit a perimeter shot worth a damn.

Green is a battier type in the future, but not a starter yet.

Robert Swift is their starting center? LOL.

They're not gonna break the [expletive]tiness record. It's a long season, they've had some close games and Durant is more beastly already than I ever could have imagined. They can somehow get on a 2 game winning streak and they're already close to 9 wins.

That team has no pride. They are a disgrace. OKC deserves better.

I think they'll end up winning 10+ games.

They got rid of Carlesimo, which has led to Durant (and some others) improving his play. Later in the year, as more teams begin to lose focus, they'll start picking up some victories at home.

Perhaps they should make the players walk through the bombing memorial downtown before their next big game. Perhaps it will inspire them to be thankful for all they have, and play some inspired ball.
