Well, you can definitely say they have been bad for years now but this season has been catastrophic and the only good thing that can come out of this season is a high pick in the upcoming draft.

“If you want to be in New York, look at the Nets. Sean Marks has done a great job. The Nets have better pieces. You get Kyrie and K.D. or Kyrie and Kawhi and you have something. They have nothing bad going on with them."
