The 7 Most Disappointing Teams of the 2013-14 NBA Season
Robert Hanashiro-USA TODAY Sport

There's a lot of overlap between the NBA's most disappointing teams and the worst teams in terms of record, but the two don't necessarily always have to coincide.

The Philadelphia 76ers and Boston Celtics, for example, are exactly what we expected them to be. They're exactly what they're supposed to be, even. They were always bad teams, and there was never any illusion that they would be something else.

With those crushed hopes and expectations in mind, let's break down the seven most disappointing teams in the NBA this season.
