If you wanted proof of how much of a train wreck the Charlotte Bobcats are this season (well, other than their record), it presented itself in the form of an ugly shouting match that turned physical between a 68-year-old coach and a 25-year-old player in the team’s locker room on Sunday. After, you guessed it, another Bobcats loss — this time a double-digit loss to a shorthanded Boston squad — Paul Silas lashed out at Tyrus Thomas for being chummy with Celtics players during the game. It only escalated from there. More, from Yahoo! Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski: Eventually, Thomas snapped back at Silas, and the coach warned him to say no more or risk a suspension. Once Thomas stood up, Silas pushed him toward his locker stall, sources said. Yikes. Talk about rock bottom. I don’t even know if Anthony Davis can save a team from that. Both Silas and Thomas were fined by the team for the incident, as if being on a 7-54 team wasn’t punishment enough. Photo credit: Rick Osentoski-US PRESSWIRE

Bobcats try to avoid ignominy

This business of finishing the season with the worst winning percentage in NBA history is getting serious. It's hard to picture who the Bobcats can beat over their last six games. The Bobcats need one victory to have a better winning percentage than the 9-73 Philadelphia 76ers in 1972-73. But the Bobcats 7-53 in this lockout-shortened NBA season, haven't won in a franchise...
