    Back in 2019, we voted and the Minnesota Timberwolves narrowly beat the Washington Wizards (link here) to take the most dysfunctional franchise crown. Who is it this year?

    Knicks at the top and belong there until further notice.

    I don't consider the New Orleans Pelicans, Sacramento Kings, Detroit Pistons, Memphis Grizzlies, Phoenix Suns dysfunctional. Maybe directionless? (Pelicans, Grizzlies, and maybe the Suns/Kings have a direction. Pistons not so much.)

    I voted Cleveland but NY is also a solid choice. Can they split the title this year?

    Not sure why Memphis is in the poll. They're doing well, and already have their franchise cornerstones.

    Knicks should be at the top indefinitely.

    Barring injury, Ja Morant will go down as an all time great.

    The Knicks have a horrible owner, GM, VP, roster and coaches plus there is pressure from the media.

    The Cavs at least have a better owner and GM and as soon as a few bad apples are traded away the coaching situation should stabilise soon.

    By the end of the year I'm looking for Minnesota to make a comeback in the dysfunction rankings with Towns asking out.

    I voted Other .... more specifically The Tilman's..

    No , they aren't the worst team but they have been horribly mismanaged since the day FernTits took over.

    No other team has a perennial MVP on the roster and does so much to cut corners.

    They could be so much better .... for a few dollars more.

    Knicks...repeat winners for all decade worst team. They would be able to land most free agents if they landed an above avg owner.

    2019-20 20 MEM NBA PG 34 34 29.5 6.7 13.8 .484 0.9 2.3 .390 5.8 11.5 .503 .516 3.5 4.4 .800 0.7 2.7 3.4 6.9 1.0 0.3 3.3 1.7 17.8

    1999-00 22 HOU NBA PG 77 77 36.1 6.5 14.5 .445 1.4 4.0 .345 5.1 10.5 .483 .493 3.7 4.7 .786 2.0 3.3 5.3 6.6 1.5 0.4 4.0 3.0 18.0

    Numbers look pretty similar to me. Francis was considered one of the best ball handlers EVER and the only playmaker we had. Its just doesnt make sense to presumptuously say that a player is going to be an all time great halfway through his rookie season.

    Astros won a World Series so has to be the Texans if we picking between these two. Baseball even says, "If you're not cheating, you aren't trying to win."

    Basically, just don't get caught. Astros got caught but still have their ring.
