Michael Jordan was the driving force that lead the Chicago Bulls of the 90s to a 72-10 record and the best winning percentage in NBA history. Ironically, he’s also behind the worst winning percentage in NBA history in this year’s Bobcats.
Twenty-three consecutive losses later, the Charlotte Bobcats made NBA history. They haven’t won since March 17 and they won’t win again for at least seven months. This season-closing loss – 104-84 at home to the New York Knicks – means they finish the season with the worst winning percentage in NBA history. A 7-59 record in this lockout-shortened season (a .106 winning percent) slips below the 1972-73 Philadelphia 76ers, who went 9-73 (.110).
“The season itself was a long haul for all of us – upstairs and downstairs,” said coach Paul Silas, who might have coached his last NBA game. His contract expires after this season. “Being the worst team in the history of the game is not something you cherish.”
