5 Teams the NBA Could Do Without

5 Teams the NBA Could Do Without

NBA Draft

The NBA has continued to rise in popularity over the years. This is mainly from certain superstars on certain teams, but not every team has and will always be worth watching. With recent talk of expansion in the league, maybe they should look at removing some teams first. Check out the five teams that the NBA could do without.

5. Sacramento Kings

The Kings have not been the same since their glory years with players like Chris Webber, Doug Christie and Peja Stojakovic. Lately, the team has been the target of relocation and needing a organizational facelift. The NBA could definitely afford to drop this franchise.

4. Charlotte Hornets

The organization formerly know as the Charlotte Bobcats has been below average to say the least. In their 25 seasons of existence, they've only been to the playoffs nine times. The greatest player of all time in Michael Jordan hasn't even been able to turn their fortunes around. It's time for the Bobcats, Hornets, or whoever they claim to be to give it up.

3. Utah Jazz

Flashbacks of Karl Malone and John Stockton can evoke those nostalgic feelings of classic basketball for the Utah Jazz. These feelings haven't been felt for some time now and a change is in order. Maybe they need a newer color scheme, new players, new coaches or a new mascot. One thing that's for certain is the Jazz are not on top of anyone's list of games to watch right now.

2. Orlando Magic

The Magic franchise has seen some good times, but they haven't been relevant since the loss of Dwight Howard. Their ticket sales had to have suffered during the reign of LeBron James in Miami and their lack of success couldn't have helped. If they were removed, the NBA wouldn't miss a thing.

1. Milwaukee Bucks

With the addition of head coach Jason Kidd and second overall draft pick Jabari Parker, the Bucks are looking to turn things around. The Bucks' BMO Harris Bradley Center is one of the oldest arenas in the league. They have the lowest current financial value of any organization in the NBA, and they are just plain boring. This is one team that no one would give a second thought to if they were gone.
