The NBA’s Biggest Busts so Far This Season

December 16th, 2014 by Dan Favale Leave a reply »

Try as the NBA's underachievers might to sneak by unnoticed, they just can't. We have a sixth, bust-detecting sense when it comes to this stuff. And it's exploding at the moment.

Disappointments are too common in the Association. For every new-frontier-exploring version of the Golden State Warriors, there's a Charlotte Hornets squadron trying to avoid personal-worst lows. Those are the early-season turkeys we're after.

Candidates can—and will—be a collective or individuals. All of them, though, are league fixtures who haven't lived up to snuff or, in some cases, the hype.

Say a team was supposed to be good and it's not. We'll be there. Say a player was supposed to make the leap but is instead careening down a slippery slope, further and further away from his expected ceiling. We'll be there too.

Nothing and no one is off limits. The NBA itself is a business, and as spectators of this fine sport, it's our business to identify parties that are, for now, going bust.
