– The Bobcats have been the laughing stock of the NBA for quite sometime now. Charlotte has made some quality moves over the past 3 years (see: Kemba Walker), but nothing to take the team back to a stage of relevancy. Rewind to the 2009-2010 season, Charlotte actually made the playoffs, even if they were rocked by the likes of Dwight Howard and the Orlando Magic (weird to say).

The Bobcats now are known as the record holders for the worst season in NBA history according to win percentage. Jordan’s Bobcats were 7-59 during the lockout shortened season, 2 games worse than the previous owner of the dubious record the 1973 Philadelphia 76ers. Now, Charlotte has some core building blocks in place with Kemba Walker, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Jeff Taylor, recently drafted big man Cody Zeller, and free agent signee Al Jefferson, who is not so young.

With the hiring of Lakers Assistant Steve Clifford, the Bobcats sign another inexperienced head coach who will most likely be let go within the next few years. Now, with the addition of Al Jefferson, the Bobcats are stuck in no mans land, not the worst, and not good enough to make the playoffs.

Have fun Bobcat fans!
