In an NBA regular season, over the course of 82 games, you're going to have an off night every now and then. It just happens. No one is immune to the grind. The NBA has one of the longest schedules in professional sports, and if you're able to bring it every single game throughout every minute of your career, then you'd be the first. Even Michael Jordan had a bad game. Even Kareem Abdul-Jabbar slipped up once or twice.
However, there are bad games, and then there are historically awful performances which deserve to be remembered solely because of how painful they were to witness. There are games no fan wants to remember. There are games players try their hardest to forget. Sometimes, you just can't string it together, but in The Worst Single-Game Performances in NBA History, we'll show you the absolute bottom of the barrel moments in basketball. As you'll see, this list covers both Hall of Fame players and big-time busts. Remember, nobody is perfect.
