7. Minnesota Timberwolves
Minnesota made the playoffs an astounding once since 2004. This is a team so historically bad that despite having Kevin Garnett for 12 years, they only made it out of the first round one time. You can talk all you like about being a small market team but that argument doesn’t hold up. The San Antonio Spurs are a case in point while the Milwaukee Bucks are moving forward now too.
It’s all about management, or in the case of the Timberwolves, a distinct lack of it. The front office has wasted generations of talent and clearly, fans can’t trust them to set things right. With a .396 winning record, it’s the lowest in the entire NBA. That’s quite simply embarrassing. In sum, Minnesota has a loser’s mentality like few other teams in America’s major leagues. Utterly grim.
