Bobcats could end up as worst NBA team ever
CHARLOTTE (AP) -- The Bobcats must win one of their remaining six games to avoid being labeled as the worst team in NBA history.
If Charlotte loses all six games it will finish with the worst winning percentage in league history (.106).
That dubious honor is currently held by the 1972-73 Philadelphia 76ers, who finished 9-73 (.110). The Bobcats have shown no signs of being able to win a game, losing a franchise-record 17th straight game Monday night against the New Orleans Hornets.
Guard Matt Carroll says the Bobcats are "desperate to get a win'' and that "nobody wants to be known as the worst team in NBA history.''
The Bobcats (7-53) host Chicago on Wednesday.
After that, they face Memphis, Sacramento, Washington, Orlando and New York to close the season.
