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. The Bobcats are so bad, the good people of Charlotte are reminiscing about the good old days when the city didn't have an NBA team. The Bobcats are so bad, Adam Morrison would be a vast improvement to their current state. The Bobcats are so bad... well, you get the point.

With their hideous 101-73 loss against the Washington Wizards Monday night, their current record of 7-57 is on track for the worst season in NBA history. Their abysmal winning percentage of .109 now barely pips the .110 winning percentage of Fred Carter's 1972-1973 Philadelphia 76ers that went 9-73. (Who doesn't miss Fred and the way he would smile and point at the camera. We can only hope Gerald Henderson has as successful of a media career in store.) Incredibly, just two short years ago, the Bobcats were 44-38 and made the playoffs. Is it a coincidence Michael Jordan took over the team in March 2010?

If the Bobcats lose their last two games at Orlando on Wednesday and versus the Knicks on Thursday, they will officially be the worst team in NBA history. And at this point, why wouldn't they lose those games, considering that pesky 21 game losing streak. The Bobcats haven't won since St. Patrick's Day and now have cracked the Top 5 for longest NBA losing streaks. Alas, we'll have to wait until the 2012-2013 version to see if they can beat the record of 26 set by the Cavs last year.

So how bad are the Bobcats? In terms of this year's NBA, they rank 30th, dead last, in the following categories:
