NBA: The Worst Loss in Every Franchise’s History

Blake Griffin Joined Seven Other Los Angeles Clippers In Double-Figure To Hand The Los Angeles Lakers Their Worst Loss In Franchise History

Blake Griffin Joined Seven Other Los Angeles Clippers In Double-Figure To Hand The Los Angeles Lakers Their Worst Loss In Franchise History

The Los Angeles Lakers were just stomped yesterday, whupped by 48 points at the hands of their co-tenants, the Los Angeles Clippers. It was the worst loss in Laker history.

That got Sports List of the Day crunching numbers. What’s every franchise’s (and team’s) worst loss?

There is the biggest beatdown of all time – a 68-point drubbing of the Miami Heat by the Cleveland Cavaliers (another connection between these two teams). Many of the below, in fact, are some of the biggest blowouts in NBA history.

Five franchises carry the shame of 60-point defeats, more than half have been beaten by at least 50 and everybody has taken it by at least 42. All these worst losses are listed below. Click on the date to check out the box score, courtesy my source, basketball-reference.com.

Some notes: The top list covers every franchise’s greatest defeat. Some of these franchises have moved or changed their names, noted with asterisks. The corresponding current teams (and their greatest defeats) are noted in the second list. The Atlanta and Milwaukee Hawks both lost by 47. The winners are the home team except when the loser is noted in CAPS.

NFL, MLB, NBA and NHL Principal Team Owners

The Green Bay Packers Have Been Owned By the Green Bay Packers Football Corporation (now the public Green Bay Packers, Inc.) for Almost 100 Years

The Green Bay Packers Have Been Owned By the Green Bay Packers Football Corporation (now the public Green Bay Packers, Inc.) for Almost 100 Years

Here are all your major North American sports (football (NFL), baseball (MLB), basketball (NBA) and hockey (NHL)) team owners – courtesy the wikipedia entries for each.

I’ve calculated the duration of current ownership for every team and sorted by those teams who have been owned the longest by their current owner(s).

The Green Bay Packers have been owned by the Green Bay Football Corporation (known today as the public company, Green Bay Packers, Inc.) for 91 years – the longest held of any major team in North America.

In fact, the Packers have been owned by GBPI longer than the NBA (1946-47) has been in existence.

Same for the NHL’s New York Rangers (88 years, Madison Square Garden Company) and Toronto Maple Leafs (83 years, Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment).

The Busses have owned the Los Angeles Lakers for 35 years, longest in the NBA.

The Steinbrenners have owned the New York Yankees for 41 years, longest in MLB.

The Packers, NY Rangers, Maple Leafs, Buffalo Bills, Tennessee Titans, Detroit Lions and Chicago Blackhawks have had the same owners for at least 50 years.
