ESPN’s panel of basketball experts have ranked the front offices of all 30 teams in the NBA. They rated “each team’s front-office management on its guidance and leadership in terms of how it affects overall on-court success, both in the short and long term.”
Impossible to argue with San Antonio’s dominance, the consistency in Dallas or what Legend has created on a shoestring budget in Indiana.
But… how much credit should Pat Riley get because LeBron James was scared to go at it alone in his home state and ran off to play with his boo, Dwyane Wade?
I’d also put the Celtics ahead of the Bulls, a team that’s been to one conference finals in the past 15 years.
I almost forgot, the Lakers are 16th and the Knicks 30th.
