The NBA season is churning right along as we are over two months into the season, meaning we've had time for each team to really establish their identity. These rankings are based on in-season performance and expectations coming into the 2017 season. There is still plenty of time for these four teams to turn their seasons around, but for now, the word disappointment describes them well. Here are the four most disappointing teams in the NBA this season.

The Oklahoma City Thunder are the most disappointing team in the NBA this season with a 14-15 record and sit in eighth place in the Western Conference. Following an offseason filled with excitement signing Paul George and Carmelo Anthony, the Thunder's expectations were set high. The team's chemistry on the court is lacking, especially on offense. The fact that only two players had an assist in last week's game against the Memphis Grizzlies is just sad. Sad!
The most disappointing team in Los Angeles this season are the Clippers. They are 11-17 and are in 10th place in the Western Conference. Lou Williams is the main offensive threat right now for the Clippers, which isn't a recipe for success. They have endured a ton of injuries this season having Blake Griffin down and several other players, including key offseason pickup Danilo Gallinari, in and out of the lineup. Losing Chris Paul this offseason has proven to be a huge loss, but maybe the Clippers are turning their season around after winning three in a row.
Currently, the Hornets are10-19, sitting in13th place in the Eastern Conference. Owner Michael Jordan has expressed his displeasure with the team and a change may be coming if the team doesn't turn it around. The Hornets are dealing with some injuries at the moment including center Cody Zeller, who is out with a torn meniscus. Dwight Howard has been playing much better than expected, but that has been the lone bright spot for a team that was expected to make the playoffs this season.
4.) Milwaukee Bucks

Giannis Antetokounmpo is one of the most exciting young players in the league but as for the rest of the team, it hasn't been pretty this season. The Bucks are 15-13, in 7th place in the Eastern Conference and before losing to the Pelicans, they were playing solid basketball. Some nights, it looks like Milwaukee has the best defense in the league while it looks below average other nights.
