As anyone who has played sports before can tell you, things don't always go exactly as planned.
Such is the case for many NBA teams and their management. While team owners have glorious plans for their franchises with visions of Larry O'Brien trophies dancing in their heads, reality can be a cruel, cruel mistress.
Whether it be hanging on to the past, a failed rebuilding plan or the false belief they're running a contender, some teams would be better off to just begin a complete revamp of the franchise.
These are those teams.
