Best and Worst of the NBA in 2013
Soobum Im-USA TODAY Sports
LeBron James and Tim Duncan waged war in an epic 2013 NBA Finals.

For the NBA, the year 2013 can best be described as the epitome of Newton's Third Law.

For every (positive) action in the league, there was an equal and opposite reaction. We witnessed one of the best Finals series in NBA history, but also suffered through a wave of major lower-body injuries to superstar guards.

We were treated to vicious, rim-rattling dunks (#RIPBrandonKnight), but couldn't escape the miserable sagas of Dwight Howard's free agency and Andrew Bynum's...well, everything.

Before the calendar flips to 2014, enjoy this look back on some of the best and worst things to happen in the NBA this year. Both the best and worst moments are ranked based upon their overall memorability and lasting impact on the league.


Note: All statistics are current through games played on Dec. 29; all records are current through games played on Dec. 30.
