PLAYERS: Paul Silas
TEAMS: Charlotte Hornets
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 head coach Paul Silas, a man who's used to success after winning three NBA titles in his career, including two with the Celtics. He's a nominee for the Basketball Hall of Fame for crying out...

Bobcats' Thomas ejected for throwing elbow

Charlotte forward Tyrus Thomas was ejected from the Bobcats' game with the Wizards for throwing an elbow at Washington's James Singleton late in the first quarter on Monday night. Thomas was dribbling and Singleton was defending him when the Charlotte forward elbowed him with 3.6 seconds remaining in the quarter. He was immediately called for a flagrant 2 foul and ejected...

Bobcats Give In and Cry, Say ‘Live and Let Die’

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 [...]

Just how bad are the Charlotte Bobcats?

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. ...

Brown: Jordan employs “spies”

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 [...]

As the Season Winds Down

Bobcats fans, perhaps one of these guys was the body language you had this season.  Hold on tight though, because thing will get better as the rebuild completes it's darkest of seasons.If you reflect back on the Bobcats season, though it was deemed a rebuilding year, the thought invokes more of a terror than a warm fuzzy feeling.  While it is understood that a rebuild is painful...

Brown rips Jordan's running of Bobcats

With his team just two losses from setting a record for NBA futility, Charlotte Bobcats owner Michael Jordan was called out Wednesday by the team's former coach for his handling of the woebegone franchise.

Rudy Gay Drops Quote Of The Year During Verbal Spat With Bismack Biyombo

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...

Thomas' ejection drives Bobcats to defeat

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.

Michael Jordan hits back at Larry Brown

Earlier today, while on the Dan Patrick Show, Larry Brown was extremely critical of Charlotte Bobcats owner Michael Jordan.  He said that Jordan surrounded himself with “yes-maen” and he often felt like Jordan had “spies” working for him. His Airness didn’t waste anytime in responding to his former employee in an interview with the Charlotte-Observer. On [...]

I Am a Cats Crazy

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...

Jordan not the worst ex-NBA player turned executive...yet

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...

Bobcats-Wizards Preview

The Charlotte Bobcats continue to inch closer to finishing with the lowest winning percentage in league history.
