VIDEO: Are Bobcats worst NBA team ever?
Are these Bobcats the worst team in NBA history? Observer NBA reporter Rick Bonnell weighs in on that, on the team's injury situation, and on which college player might be the best fit for Charlotte when the draft rolls around:

No way this team is worse than the nets team 2 or 3 years ago. No effing way. They arent even the worst team in the league this year, they just have the worst record. Detroit, toronto, jersey, sacramento, etc. All really horrible teams just as much as we are. They just have more experience and continuity.
I do hope we get top pick and grab davis. Drummond would be a waste, barnes a consolation prize to davis.

This team is not even the worst team this year. We might not even finish with the worst record this year even with all the injuries.

The number to beat is nine wins! Seven more wins! I don't think they can win seven more quarters this year! Jordan deserves worst team ever! I don't just want to see them get beat! I want Jordan to watch them get beat by 20 every night!

They are not the worst team, they are the worst COACHED TEAM in the NBA. Put any coaching staff that can implement a gameplan, execute, adjust, teach, and make SMART substitutions and viola, you have a winning team.
Stick Silas and his staff on any WINNING team in the NBA right now, and I bet they would start losing.
Nobody wants Silas and his sorry staff except his Cheapness, MJ. Get a real coaching staff on that sideline and this team will start winning.

Jordan dead broke losing 10 mill a month and will sell or let the NBA take over. There will be no NBA after this slop ends and the 5 mill monthly payments for 25 more years in serious jeopardy with only ice hockey and concerts to help pay the bill. Forget taxpayers as that aint gonna happen.
The city needs to pre-consider letting the 500 mill loan go into default and banks foreclose on the property. Advise the DNC the venue will be moved to the bigger 23k seat nicer 1986 built Tyvola Road Arena. Scratch that. They tore it down. DNC may head to the 1957 old Coliseum aka Bojangles Dome with a max 13k seats and all the cheap rate Bates Motels. They are dumborats afterall.
Bobcats to Vegas playing at UNLV ...

Either team last night could have beaten the Bobcats...wouldn't that be a hoot? Honestly, there are 5-7 guys last night that will get an NBA check: Rivers, Mason Plumlee, Barnes, Zeller, Marshall, Henson are pretty much locks. I would love to see a Rivers-Augustine or Rivers-Walker matchup. I honestly think Duke or UNC would beat the Bobcats by double digits at least 3 of 5 and maybe sweep them. Can't you see Ryan Kelly or Zeller just b****slapping Diaw? How about Henson schooling Byron. I would pay to see this exhibition.

joe cool - I thik the 9 wins as the benchmark is based on a full season. Since this season is 16 games shorter we're really only looking at 7 wins. Regardless, we stink like a pair of old socks.

I think some wins are coming with these days off with practices. We may be the worst now(today), but as far as what I saw the past 2 games with a few practices in between, there might be a win coming this weekend. I maybe crazy... fair enough. However, by the end of this season we will not be laughed at as Weber was on NBA Gametime. I don't mind building in progress. Being Laughed at, being "THAT" team, NO!

i forgot all about washington and new orleans....new orleans just gutted their team and have major ownership issues. washington is just an absolute mess. they are equally talented as we are but with FAR LESS promise. far less. wall is probably the only salvageable piece of that group and even he might be tainted from the mess they have going on.
i hope we lose every single game until the last week or 2 of the season. end the season on a nice run, secure the best odds at the top pick and a guarantee at the top 3 or 4 and come back next year ready to go with more experience. we don't have the headcases that sacramento or washington has. we have a brighter future than toronto or golden state . new jersey and new orleans HAVE to sign the williams/gordon and even that isn't enough but if they lose those guys to free agency (which they easily could) then they are beyond horrible.
we are poised to have a GREAT young nucleus. biyombo is the youngest player in the league (we think/hope) and that group of walker/augustin/henderson/williams/mullens/brown/biyombo are all still looking very promising for their age. you stir in davis or barnes or sullinger and keep that group together and coach them up.....we can be great for a long time.
question mark is tyrus thomas and d.j. white. white looked like a keeper and has just disappeared since he got hurt weeks back. thomas has shown flashes but he's the oldest and most experienced of this core group and he's looking to be the weakest. and he's the highest paid. he's looking like an amnesty candidate honestly. if he can hone in on being gerald wallace and rebound and block shots and run the floor and finish on fast breaks and give us 12 and 12 and a block every night........great. but if he keeps doing what he's been doing.......he's looking mighty mighty overpaid.
ideal scenario....we land top pick this year and draft davis....finish just outside the playoffs and come up big in the lottery a la the hornets landing baron davis and grab another top 5 pick the following year. then it's playoffs for the next 10 years like okc and indiana and chicago are looking at.

Do you think just simply adding a rookie (Anthony Davis) would turn the Bobcats into a 30, 40 or 50 win team? "Just outside the playoffs." Wouldn't this mean adding about 30 wins? Two problems with this: you are saying this year's team is not worth watching and next year's team may be marginally better, but a little more exciting. Can MJ wait two or three more years to sell tickets? Basically, that's what you are saying. Don't worry about this year and really don't worry about next year, but we'll be much, much better three years from now. What the average fan will say is: call me in three years if you want me to buy those $150 tickets.

that's not at all what i'm saying. I watch every game and i think this team was very exciting prior to augustin being injured and definitely at times since then.
i am saying that they are not as bad as their record suggests this year, it's about injuries and lack of experience, SOME about talent and by drafting a top 3 pick in THIS YEARS draft, we WILL land a franchise guy.
i am saying that you take the group we have and add that guy and we could be a 30 win team next year. we were a 34 win team last year. we're talking about subbing wallace and jackson for walker, biyombo, mullens, williams and either davis or barnes. getting younger in the process, but developing guys like brown, augustin, henderson more so in the process. we can absolutely win 30 games next year.
eff average fans. charlotte is filled with fairweather fans. they don't support the panthers when they are rebuilding (and doing the right thing) and finally when the bobcats are doing the right thing, the few people that have been on board, are jumping off.
the future is crazy bright. it could be 30 wins next year and it could be 50 for the next 10 years after that. that beats the hell out of winning 36-44 games every year.

I would be willing to trade Boris Diaw for a bag of Funions. Any takers?

Can we change the name back to the Charlotte Hornets yet? I'm, so tired of this lousy bobcats team. It is pretty bad when you go out on the town at night and you see more Charlotte Hornets gear being worn than the Charlotte Bobcats. I'm not the only person who thinks this way. Most of Charlotte hates the Bob-Johnson-Cats name.

Trade Diaw to the Lakers for their trade exception and their 1st round pick. Do it MJ, Do it.
