...at least that's what this week's Sports Illustrated Poll revealed.

SI asked 173 NBA players, "Which team is least likely to win a title in the next five years?"

Here are the top five results:

Nets -- 31 percent

Timberwolves -- 16 percent

Grizzlies -- 15 percent

Knicks -- 11 percent

Clippers/Bobcats -- 5 percent

Really? So 19 players believe the Knicks are in worse shape than any other team in the NBA?? And what about the Pacers? According to SI, Indiana received just one vote -- ONE -- which happens to be the same amount the Cavaliers received.

Wonder who cast that vote?
