Most Hated NBA Teams of All Time: BR5

BR5Daily ShowDecember 11, 2014

Welcome to BR5, your destination for Sports and Pop Culture.

What NBA team is most hated? Well, it's a simple question that often has a complex answer. A lot of hatred for a team is drawn simply from the fact that it's very good. And sometimes it's drawn from that fact that the team is just easy to hate.

The Lakers and Celtics have more championships than most people can count, so dislike for them runs deep. Some teams, like the Detroit Pistons of the late '80s, get flack because they were physical. Then there are teams like the Portland Trail Blazers, who were not only bad on the court but even worse off of it.

Most will never agree that there is one "most hated," but one thing is for sure: Everyone will have an opinion.
