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 his on-court accomplishments?

Some would argue, yes. It’s been 11-years since MJ retired from the Chicago Bulls and it’s almost as if everyone has forgotten those glory days and instead chided him for the debacle that is the Bobcats.

One thing is for sure: he is certainly moving him up the latter in the worst ex-NBA boss title currently held by one of MJ’s contemporaries.
