I have decided to make a S.W. analysis for NBA teams. Wondering what S.W. is? It is half of a S.W.O.T. analysis. In this article I will only mention, position by position, S (Strengths) and W (Weakness) of NBA teams. I don't think any of you did not notice why the Suns allow opposing power forwards and centers have a career night in every game. Or from the reverse angle, what can be the reason Portland shutting down opponent's center? Maybe because they love to play zone defense? Coaches must seriously consider this article and take care of his team's weakness as soon as possible. Mr. D'Antoni are you hearing me?

Let's have a look at Achilles Heels first.

I have researched the top 10 teams according to positions which they can't defend most.
