Most season ending injuries for a team in a single season?

Reclaiming the NBA Throne is easy.

All we need is a powerful beast that can soar up to the skies and lay waste on our enemies. One with potential to wreak havoc and strike fear. With such a mythical being, we can take back what is ours - with fire and blood.

I hear talk that such a beast is projected #1 overall in the 2014 draft.

The Celtics 96-97 team had a ton of guys out for the year by the end.  I think it set the record for most games missed in season b/c of injury (which ended up getting surpassed in the 00s).

Don't forget last year...green, Wilcox, Bradley, j o'neal, ray on bad ankles
The year before...Shaquille, essentially j. o'neal, essentially west for most of the year, and marquis
The year before...Kendrick in the finals
The year before...kg, Leon powe

And let's not even get into our unlucky history of Larry's back, bias, Reggie, mchales ankles, Walton...on and on.

The celts have really bad health luck.  It sucks!

This season is still not lost though!

this is really starting to upset me, we were so spoiled in 08 :/ weve lost plenty of championships over the years due to injuries.

The Nets had six players suffer season-ending injuries last season:  Damion James, Keith Bogans, Shawne Williams, Mehmet Okur, Jordan Farmar, and Brook Lopez.
