As the only nutjob/diehard NBA fan left in the world, I decided to do something different with this post. The Spurs and Pistons consistently pick at the bottom of the first round, but seem to remain in contention every year, whereas teams like the Clippers and Hawks (until now) remain at the bottom of the league and in the lottery. So here is a list of teams listed backwards according to NBA.com's current Power Rankings. You will notice a pattern at talent recognition in this article and how some teams just can't scout or have an eye for talent.

I will go back as far as 2002.
