Default Which Team Is the Biggest Disappointment Thus Far In The Season?

Currently I would probably put the 76ers up there. So far things aren't looking that much better than last year with the addition of Brand. They've lost the last 3 games in a row. They're defense looks decent, but their offense hasn't looked like I would've thought it would with the addition of Brand and Young developing well.

Maybe a week ago I would've picked New Orleans for the first spot. They were 5-5 at one point with really the only injury going to Chandler. This team looks pretty stacked now talent wise so you'd think they'd be up there with the Lakers, or the Rockets, etc. They've looked well though the last 5 games even though they just lost to the Blazers?

Opinions on disappointing teams so far everyone?

Cavs. Why haven't they won the Finals already?

Clippers..

I thought the stacked line-up and great bench would give them a spot in the playoffs, so far its a disappointment

New Orleans. I was expecting them to be right behind the Lakers in the western conference but the other day I looked at the standings and they're #8.

I saw it coming, but I astill hoped the Sixers would play better. They just don't have the guys who fit together.

Also the Clippers have the same problem. You have a run & gun pg, a older C and a oft injured c who you can't count on and who doesn't have his head on straight. Then a sf who just isn't that good.

I don't know, before the season started I just felt that even on paper it didn't look good for them to gel together. I think if they kept Brand and added Davis they would've been better off with Brand/Kaman than Camby/Kaman.

I thought with the starting line-up, on paper it looked dangerous.
Camby/Kaman combo looked deadly on paper as it gives the frontcourt a mix of good offense and really great defense, ran by a great run and gun PG.

Zbo in and Kaman out for a good SF, like I said combine those two for Gwallace and Augustin. Perfect. Let Gordon rip it up at sg. He's a much brighter prospect than Thornton.

Thornton is nice. He's a 6th man type of guy. A 4th option on a good team maybe. But he's just not that good. Last yeear, on a injury riddled team he had a string of good games, but so did Bob Sura and Chris Crawford in 2001 for the Hawks. Thornton isn't a great defender, he's not a very good shooter, he's not very agile. He can do everything a bit. Maybe a Josh Howard type if we are really really lucky. But since we're in win-now mode I'd sure as hell like to get a much better SF and a good back up at PG for one of our big men and Thornton.

Then again, with just trading TT away we lack depth at SF too. Maybe swing Jason Hart for a whatever SF who's rotting on a bench somewhere.

Sixers for me so far. Still really early in the season but I thought they would be giving the Celtics a run for their money out East.
