This is a list of National Basketball Association (NBA) franchise post-season appearance droughts. This list includes the all-time and the active consecutive non-playoffs. Aside from the NBA Playoff appearance droughts, this list also includes droughts of series wins, the NBA Finals appearance drought and the NBA championships win drought. The teams which have never made an NBA Playoffs appearance, an NBA Finals appearance and have never won an NBA championship are listed from the year they entered the league.

Of the 30 current NBA franchises, 13 have never won the NBA championship. The oldest such franchise is the Suns (46 seasons), while the Royals/Kings and the Hawks have even longer championship droughts (63 and 56 seasons, respectively). Only 7 franchises have never been to the NBA Finals, the oldest of which is the Braves/Clippers (44 seasons), and again the Kings and the Hawks have appearance droughts that are even longer (63 and 56 seasons, respectively). The longest a franchise has gone without appearing in the playoffs at all is 15 seasons: the Braves/Clippers franchise from 1977 to 1991.

Of the 17 franchises that have won an NBA championship, 9 have droughts of 30 seasons or more, which is to say that the past 30 championships have been shared among only 8 franchises: the Lakers (8), the Bulls (6), the Spurs (4), the Celtics (3), the Pistons (3), the Heat (3), the Rockets (2), and the Mavericks (1). By contrast, the other three major North American sports have each had at least 13 franchises become champions over the same period of time.[1][2][3] Similarly, the past 32 championships have been shared among only 9 franchises: the eight listed above, and the 76ers.
