In the NBA, teams can be placed into three categories.
First off are the contenders, those that are regulars in the playoffs and could feasibly win a title in the near future with the roster they've put together.
Next are the rebuilders, the teams who have sold off the veterans in favor of high draft picks and salary cap relief. They may not be enjoying a very pleasant present, but the future remains bright.
Category three is the absolute worst. This is the purgatory of basketball, those teams that are too good not to get a high lottery pick yet too bad to make any kind of noise in the playoffs.
The purpose of this article is to identify those teams in group three, in the hopes they may realize the path they are headed and seek help immediately.
These are the NBA teams that need to go back to the drawing board.
