A dysfunctional franchise is a gift to the casual NBA viewer in need of entertainment through the early, slower part of the regular season. Even though the team is usually bad — there are dysfunctional franchises that could put out a respectable team — it brings so much joy to watch a team struggle at some of the most simple aspects of the game.

How did things get so bad so fast in New York?
