#10 2006: The Bobcats select Adam Morrison with the 3rd overall pick in the draft, wisely bypassing as many as one million other people on the planet who would have been worse selections.
#9 2003 to 2009: Despite being Charlotte's most embarrassing sports team, the Bobcats successfully never employ Charlotte's most embarrassing athlete, Jake Delhomme.
#8 2011: The Bobcats trade for Byron Mullens. While Mullens is a worthless basketball player, the gawky dork is still quite entertaining to watch for those who enjoy mocking people.
#7 2012: While finishing the season with the worst winning percentage in NBA history at .106, Bobcats' team owner Michael Jordan probably had lots of good rounds on the golf course in 2012.
- Yes. Several 50-somethings play for the Knicks and Lakers, so there's no reason the greatest player ever couldn't play at that age, too.
- No. But I do think he could still be a terrible minor league baseball player.
- I mean, I guess he could technically play for the Bobcats because he owns the team. Also, it's the Bobcats.
- I don't know, but the only way he can make people forget his stint with the Wizards is to make an even more depressing return.
Blame it on LeBron.
Maybe it was 0-for-4. No shame there.
News Report: Michael Jordan Out $12.6 Million in Gambling Losses Thanks to Charlotte Bobcats' Surprising 7-7 Start
"Michael is really pissed off," said a Bobcats front office source. "Something really bad has to happen for him to show up at the office because he takes a I'll say a 'hands-off' approach to management. But he's been here all week demanding answers about why this team is winning games."
Jordan came to the team's office for the first time all season last week after the Bobcats went on a tear in which they won five of six to get to 6-4 a streak that saw their owner lose nearly $10 million and put off the purchase of a Ferrari. Since an office tirade and a closed-door meeting with this team, the Bobcats have lost three of four including a 45-point loss to Oklahoma City in which they trailed 82-29 at one point. The only victory came in overtime against the Wizards, a game the Bobcats tried desperately to lose for their owner, only to be out-failed by Washington. The return to normalcy has seen Jordan make back some money, allowing him to finalize the purchase of a new Ferrari with a custom denim paint job.
"Michael's big thing is that he will not accept mediocrity," said a team source. "Mainly because it is impossible to make money betting on a mediocre team. He wants us to either win all of our games or lose all of our games. Nothing in the middle."
LeBron could probably be a good car driver.
Not cool. Michael Jordan is on record saying that Republicans buy sneakers.
Wyoming is known for its basketball acumen.
Maybe I'd consider 10 years for the price of 1. Maybe.
Looks like they got about five fans for every win.
