Ranking the Worst Moment in the History of Each NBA Team
Goodbye, far too soon. (AP, via wbur.org)

Some events are unquantifiable in their horrific nature, and some NBA teams have been through trials far more trying than others. But in this slideshow, I've tried to quantify tragedy and give an order to some of the worst things that have befallen each franchise.

Deaths clearly stand out as the worst of all scenarios, but other than ranking three deaths atop this list, I've tried to steer clear of making each team's event a death within the organization. This could have easily been a slideshow that just ranks deaths, but few have curiosities so morbid that they would find such a piece entertaining.

That said, aside from the deaths of Len Bias, Reggie Lewis and Drazen Petrovic, there are no slides about deaths in the show. Some focus on players leaving organizations, and others on scandals, helping give shape to the worst moments in the history of each team, ranked from least tragic to most horrendous.
