Comparing Disaster Reports for the New York Knicks and Brooklyn Nets
Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

It'd be in poor taste to compare the New York Knicks and Brooklyn Nets' disastrous campaigns to actual catastrophes. After all, as bad as the year has gone for these two teams, we're still really just talking about multimillion dollar playthings for filthy rich owners who are still making a few bucks in the process anyway.

So we'll leave Chernobyl, the Hindenburg and the volcanic eruption of your choice (Vesuvius? Santorini, perhaps?) out of the discussion.

Instead, we'll employ a less life-and-death but still familiar set of "disaster ratings" to quantify just how messy things have been for the Knicks and Nets. In other words, we'll assign letter grades.

When everything's hunky-dory, an "A" is in order. When we're poised on the precipice of full-on calamity, "F's" will issue. In order to keep things relatively uniform, there will only be a couple of isolated departures from that tried-and-true system.

It's easy to see that both the Knicks and Nets are full-blown disasters. But which star-crossed franchise has it worse?
