Found November 13, 2012 on The Sports Rocker:
First, let's congratulate the Charlotte Bobcats on the worst season of ineptitude ever in the NBA. The Bobcats finished last season with a 7-59 record and a .106 winning percentage. They even capped off the season with a 23-game losing streak. Hey, if you're gonna be awful, you gotta do it right.Since a new season of NBA goodness is upon us, who takes the crown for worst team in the league this year?Your contenders:Toronto RaptorsCurrent Record: 1-6Current Streak: Lost 4 in a row.Notes: Averaging 100.1 points per game, but giving up 104.7 for 2nd place in opposition scoring. The Raptors are also tied for the worst record against the points spread at 2-5.Detroit PistonsCurrent Record: 0-8Current Streak: Lost 9 in a row dating back to 2011-12 season.Notes: The Pistons haven't finished above .500 since the 2007-08 season when the won the Central division.  The also have the worst points differential in the Association at -10.2. The next closest is Charlotte at -7.4. Hey, if you're going to get blown out, do it right.Washington WizardsCurrent Record: 0-5Current Streak: Lost 7 in a row dating back to 2011-12 season.Notes: This is just a pathetic franchise. The Wizards haven't finished above .500 since the 2007-08 season when some guy named Gilbert Arenas was playing. They are near the top in 3-point attempts differential and near the bottom in free throw attempts differential. That shows their not playing an inside-outside game, rather, their just launching threes and not drawing fouls.Tune in next week to see how our contenders are doing, and to see if any other teams are ready to join them.
