    Jersey is so brutal this year, MLE has to have 19 teams being above average simply to offset the incredible suckitude of the Nets and still keep the league average equal to zero. By standard SRS, only 3 teams in NBA history have been as good as NJ has been bad: the 1971 Bucks, the 1996 Bulls, and the 1972 Lakers. In 2010, we've all been witnesses... to one of the worst basketball teams of all time, that is.

  3. P Middy Says:

    Any idea when an NBA team last played in front of less than 1500 fans? The combination of snow, Nets, and Bucks apparently kept all but the most bored denizens of Weehawken at home.

  4. Pageup Says:

    what's the record for fewest wins? is it 9 by Philly?

  5. Neil Paine Says:

    Yes:

    http://www.basketball-reference.com/teams/PHI/1973.html

    The Nets are on pace to shatter that record; their .077 WPct has them projected to win 6 or 7 games this year. Which is something I didn't think was possible in the salary-cap era.
