There is truly no word to describe how awful the Charlotte Bobcats were this season. That’s why you heard all the jokes around March Madness that Kentucky could beat the Bobcats. As the numbers will prove the Bobcats where one of the worst teams in the history of the NBA. The only hope for the Bobcats is to win the lottery and get Kentucky’s Anthony Davis. Who would have ever though a team owned by the greatest basketball of all time Michael Jordan would be this bad? Check out the numbers below.
- The Bobcats finished the season with a 7-59 record. That’s a .106 winning percentage. Remember this was a shorten schedule because of the NBA lockout only 66 games compared to the normal 82.
- The .106 winning percentage is the worst in NBA history. The 1972-73 Philadelphia 76ers were 9-73 for a .110 winning percentage.
- Charlotte’s 7 wins is the least amount of wins since the Providence Steamrollers had 6 wins in 1947-48. Who knows if the Bobcats could have gotten any more wins if they have played 16 more games.
