View Full Version : Latest expansion teams rankings (SI)

This SI article ranks expansion teams(since 1988) according to the things they've put on the table since coming to the league. We've -of course- made a low grade, out time has yet to come, but still better than Grizzlies.
I believe it worths a glance: http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2007/writers/steve_aschburner/11/20/expansion.grades/2.html

While the Bobcats aren't lighting the world on far, they're proving to be far better than those horrid expansion franchises of the early 90s.
I think it's silly that he grades based on luck. I know that's part of the NBA as much as anything, but giving Orlando that high of a grade because they won back to back lotteries is pretty ridiculous. They were a whole lot of awful until they won those lotteries.

Except for us being over the Griz every team is ranked by win %. Since we are the shortest out of expansion guess what? WE have the lowest win %!!!
Pretty much worthless IMO.
