Michael Jordan has always stood for greatness in the game of basketball.
But this is the first time where no one wants to “be like Mike”.
As the majority owner of the Charlotte Bobcats, Jordan’s failure is always before him as the team owns the worst record in the league with only 7 wins (and 57 losses) on the season for a .109 winning percentage and Charlotte could end up posting the worst winning percentage in NBA history.
Number 23 used to dominate on the floor and will go down in the annals as the best player to ever play the game, but now the Bobcats are mired in a franchise-low 21-game losing streak and are one loss away from making headlines for all the wrong reasons.
A Charlotte (7-57) loss to Orlando on Wednesday or New York on Thursday firmly places them as owners of the league's worst-ever winning percentage (likely at .106, 7-59).
Does this tarnish Jordan’s six NBA titles, 5 league MVP’s, 14 NBA All-Star appearances and 10 NBA scoring titles, just to name a few of ...

The Charlotte Bobcats are an atrocious basketball team, as evidenced by their 7-57 record, a mark that has been helped along by a current 21-game losing streak. They're so bad, in fact, that they're on the verge of becoming the worst team in the history of the league, at least in terms of win-loss percentage. As one could imagine, that's making life difficult for Charlotte...
Hello, Friends! And I do mean friends. After over a year in exile, I, Andrew Barraclough/BIGCatBobcat/theRobertoGato (the original, accept no imitations), am back home at BobcatsPlanet.com. Ziggy and I talked through our issues, and believe me, they were many (they weren’t really many) and I’ve agreed to come back. I had one condition however: my [...]
Not only are the Bobcats 7-57 against the league, they’re now 0-2 against national columnists. In SI.com, Michael Rosenberg wondered how someone as competitive as Michael Jordan could let something like this season happen. In his ESPN Insider Per Diem column, John Hollinger demonstrated how the team’s atrociousness is historically significant. I halfway expect to [...]
Michael Jordan's No. 23 has long been synonymous with greatness. By Thursday night that number could have a completely different meaning for him.
His Charlotte Bobcats face their 23rd consecutive loss and would finish the season with the worst winning percentage in NBA history (.106) if they don't beat the New York Knicks on the final night of the shrunken season. And that...
Here's a video of former UConn Huskies All-American and current Charlotte Bobcats rookie point guard Kemba Walker talking about his experiences in the NBA.

The Charlotte Bobcats are bad. That's not news to anybody. But just how bad are the spawn of Michael Jordan? The Bobcats are so bad, Air Jordan would be less of a detriment taking the floor at the age of 49 and having the hangtime of Phil Mickelson than he is running the front office. The Bobcats are so bad, Bill Walton can't find words to describe their ineptitude...
Michael Jordan has been a terrible owner, and there is no argument that can be made against that. His most successful seasons with the Charlotte Bobcats were with SMU’s Larry Brown as the head coach, which saw the team reach the playoffs in Brown’s second season. It is the only playoff series that the Bobcats [...]
John Wall had 16 points and 14 assists, Nene scored 18 points and Jan Vesely had 16 points on 8-for-8 shooting and the Washington Wizards handed the Charlotte Bobcats their 21st straight loss, 101-73 on Monday night.
It gave the Wizards their first four-game winning streak since Dec. 9-13, 2007. The 28-point margin of victory equaled their largest in the season.
The Bobcats were...
With his team just two losses from setting a record for NBA
futility, Charlotte Bobcats owner Michael Jordan was called out

I probably deem seven or eight different remarks “quote of the year” over the course of every NBA season, but I’m usually just being rhetorical. In this case, I mean it. Excuse my lateness, but last Friday night, after the Grizzlies escaped with a come-from-behind victory in Charlotte, Rudy Gay was asked what he said to 19-year-old rookie Bismack Biyombo during a fourth...
Michael Jordan, arguably the greatest NBA player ever, is poised to become the owner of the worst team in league history.
His embarrassingly bad Charlotte Bobcats have one more shot to avoid the title.
Heading into Thursday night's regular-season finale, the Bobcats are teetering on the verge of the worst winning percentage (.106) ever and could clinch the dubious distinction...
WASHINGTON (AP) -- John Wall had 16 points and 14 assists, Nene scored 18 points and Jan Vesely had 16 points on 8-for-8 shooting and the Washington Wizards handed the Charlotte Bobcats their 21st straight loss, 101-73 on Monday night.

Hendo, I got your back. Too many "no-calls" and "phantom-foul" calls for you all season, so enjoy this photo of you in front of TWC "Cloud City" Arena.Does anyone else miss Derrick Brown's "Poet's Corner"? I always got a kick out of him reciting song lyrics. I got started thinking about it during the game against Memphis. As...
His critics piling up by the week, Charlotte Bobcats owner Michael Jordan finally came forward Wednesday to defend himself, his top executives and his franchise. Wednesday morning former Bobcats coach Larry Brown went on the Dan Patrick radio show, saying those around Jordan "don't have a clue" and made him "sick" when he worked there. Brown went so far...
