Is The Oklahoma City Thunder The Worst NBA Team Ever?

Eric StreithorstContributor IDecember 18, 2008

Could we possibly be looking at the worst team in NBA history? Currently, the Oklahoma City Thunder, formerly the Seattle Supersonics, are 2-24 this season and have shown little signs of improvement. However, some of their recent games have been close, but close games do not get you anything, a loss is a loss.

The Thunder have the second worst start in the first 26 games in NBA history, the only team with a worse start is the 1970-71 Cleveland Cavaliers who started 1-25. The Thunder is also on pace to finish with the same record as the 1972-73 Philadelphia 76ers, who finished with a miserable 9-73 record, the worst in NBA history.

The Oklahoma City Thunder could indeed finish with that record at this pace and go down as the worst team in NBA history.
