NBA 73 43 Top 10 disappointments of the NBA season 11098089 Washington Wizards Washington+Wizards+ NBA The hope was that Gilbert Arenas would be healthy and the Wiz would contend for a top-four seed. The fear was that Arenas' knees would be balky and Washington would hover around .500. The reality was so much worse. Guns in the locker room. A season-long suspension for Arenas. A fire sale at the trade deadline. The second-worst record in the East. And so little hope for the future that at least next season won't be a disappointment since the bar will be set so low.

NBA 73 43 Top 10 disappointments of the NBA season 11097947 Ben Gordon and Charlie Villanueva Ben+Gordon+and+Charlie+Villanueva NBA Armed with cap space and the desire to rebuild, the Pistons committed nearly $100 million last summer to Gordon and Villanueva, giving both free agents five-year deals. Detroit's decline, rather than be abated, was accelerated by the hugely disappointing seasons of both players. Neither does much of anything but score, and they didn't even do much of that.

NBA 73 43 Top 10 disappointments of the NBA season 11098091 New Jersey Nets New+Jersey+Nets+ NBA Thanks to their late-season hot streak (of sorts), the Nets are happy about avoiding the worst record in NBA history. But at the start of the season, no one expected them to be this bad. Devin Harris (pictured), supposedly a rising star, had a wretched season, while Courtney Lee and Yi Jianlian are among the other disappointments on a roster full of them. A 70-loss season is pathetic, even if it's not historic.

NBA 73 43 Top 10 disappointments of the NBA season 11097992 Boston Celtics Boston+Celtics+ NBA We knew they were aging, but we thought they had one or two good years left. We were wrong. Kevin Garnett (right) is now more bark than bite, Ray Allen and Paul Pierce have lost a step, and free-agent acquisition Rasheed Wallace (left) is an out-of-shape, 3-point-chucking bust. Rajon Rondo still has the Celtics among the league's upper 10, but the 2008 title is the only one this team will sniff for a while.

NBA 73 43 Top 10 disappointments of the NBA season 11098090 Hedo Turkoglu, Toronto Raptors Hedo+Turkoglu%2C+Toronto+Raptors NBA Turkoglu parlayed a dynamic playoff run with the Magic into a five-year, $53 million deal -- one the Raptors surely regret given his weak debut season. Besides his tepid stats (11.8 points, 41.2 FG%) and lousy defense, his attitude became a major issue. He missed a late-season game with a stomach virus, then was spotted at a Toronto nightclub hours later. The team benched him the next game.

NBA 73 43 Top 10 disappointments of the NBA season 11097991 Chicago Bulls Chicago+Bulls++ NBA Derrick Rose's scintillating rookie season, capped off by a classic first-round series with the Celtics, suggested bigger and better things to come. But the loss of Ben Gordon offset the return of Luol Deng. Injuries to Rose and Joakim Noah didn't help. Chicago still managed to sneak into the playoffs with a .500 record, but does anyone think they'll take even one game from the Cavs?

NBA 73 43 Top 10 disappointments of the NBA season 11098095 Los Angeles Lakers Los+Angeles+Lakers+ NBA Really? Didn't the Lakers finish first in the Western Conference? Well, yes, but after adding Ron Artest to a 65-win team, there was reasonable talk of 70 wins. Yet there's been nothing dominant about this bunch. Even with Kobe hitting a game-winner seemingly every week, L.A. managed only 57 wins. A championship redeems everything, of course, but the regular season was blemished by underachievement.

NBA 73 43 Top 10 disappointments of the NBA season 11098092 Philadelphia 76ers Philadelphia+76ers++ NBA If last season was a major disappointment for Elton Brand (pictured) and the Sixers, this season was a mild one. Brand is no longer injured; he's just average. Andre Iguodala's a nice player; he's just not worth all that money. Eddie Jordan's a decent coach, but not for this team. Philly now has the worst possible situation: a lousy team and a bunch of bad contracts.

NBA 73 43 Top 10 disappointments of the NBA season 11098093 Richard Jefferson, San Antonio Spurs Richard+Jefferson%2C+San+Antonio+Spurs NBA He was supposed to be exactly what San Antonio needed, an athletic wing scorer and defender in his prime. Instead, he's been just another guy. And with that, the Spurs' championship window with Tim Duncan closes for good.

Injuries also spoiled the seasons for other players we wanted to see, like Greg Oden, Chris Paul and Yao Ming. -- John Galinsky, FOXSports.com NBA editor
