Anyways, they’re bad. So we decided to make a ranking for them since, ya know, tanking is going to be so popular in the NBA this season. Forget power rankings, we know the Miami Heat are always going to top that, but who’s leading the NBA tanking ranking?? Yes, we want to make that a thing.
The Knicks are still bad, the Nets, too. The Bulls might not be far behind and the Heat, Pacers and Spurs are definitely the class of the NBA.
So let’s get this thing started. First, we’ll sectionalize them by levels of smell, just to make it interesting. Here we go…week 5…
SMELLY UNDERWEAR – Bad, but manageable.
10. Detroit Pistons
I have no idea what to make of the Pistons. I honestly though they’d be much better than they’ve been so far this season — I was wrong. Personally, I liked the Jennings/Drummond/Monroe combination. Defensively, it hasn’t been working so far. Maybe they can turn it around just in time? Maybe not.
I’m not sure how the Bobcats are currently in the playoffs. At 8-10 they shouldn’t be, but the Eastern Conference.
According to reports, Rajon Rondo is cleared or extremely close to being cleared. Much like the rest of the medical recoveries happening in the NBA, it’ll be up to Rondo on when and/or whether he returns this season.
USED DIAPERS – A little worse than dirty underwear, but the smell is very much noticeable.
It feels like Victor Oladipo has at least one high-flying highlight per week. But it also feels like the Magic can only muster one win a week, at the same time. Story.
The Sixers have won one game in their past nine opportunities — and that win came against the Milwaukee Bucks. Says about all you need to know about the struggle that Philly is going through.
ROADKILL – Man, you smell that? What’d we hit?
The Nets have won two of their last four — progress? They also have a huge showdown with the Knicks on Thursday. Someone has to win that game, right?
Again, talented but just can’t figure out how to put it all together. Derrick Williams was recently added and I’m not sure why. We’ll see.
DEAD FISH – Yeap, they’re dead. Where are the close pins?
Apparently, the Knicks would rather fight each other, rather than their opponents. Figures
2. Utah Jazz
I’m not sure if it really means anything, but the Jazz beat the Rockets last night.
1. Milwaukee Bucks
The Bucks aren’t waiting for someone to come back from injury. They’re aren’t bagging on their core group of young players to grow up. They’re just bad. They need a franchise-saving lottery pick this season. Bad.
