bobcats cheerleaders

The current team of Michael Jordan bested the old team of Michael Jordan in a New Year’s Eve matinee, which is extremely embarrassing for the Chicago Bulls. The Charlotte Bobcats ended their 18 game losing streak 91-81 on the road at the United Center. Remember, this is the same team that set a NBA record for lowest ever winning percentage in a season.

It’s clear the Bulls need Derrick Rose back ASAP- but he’s nowhere near ready. You won’t see him until after the All-Star break.

The Sports Bank‘s NBA Off-season team needs pages begins at the bottom.  The Charlotte Bobcats gave new definition to the word “bottom” this past season by finishing with the worst win percentage in NBA historyMichael Jordan faces a long road ahead to get the Bobcats out of the gutter and there certainly isn’t a quick fix in the near future.  (At least MJ has a hot fiancee to look at.  Speaking of hot, the smoking Bobcat dancer above is Brittany Kerr who auditioned for American Idol this past year.  Check out more pics of her.)

NBA Draft: Where Do The Charlotte Bobcats Go From Here?

Michael Jordan

The Charlotte Bobcats could not have had a worse season. Actually, if winning 7 of 66 games isn’t embarrassing enough, it would be even more embarrassing if the Bobcats didn’t end up getting the #1 pick in the June draft. This team has a lot of improving to do and it starts with cleaning house.

Michael Jordan’s Charlotte Bobcats: on pace for NBA’s worst season ever

Michael-Jordan

It’s the very definition of irony. Not coincidence or “a bummer” mislabeled as irony, which you’ll hear from third-rate television and newspaper journalists everywhere. Michael Jordan, who won six titles with the Chicago Bulls, and is widely considered the greatest player in NBA history, has been an abject failure as an owner.

His NBA franchise, the Charlotte Bobcats, is 3-26 and on pace to have the worst season in NBA history. Talk about having a dichotomy in your legacy.

Milwaukee Bucks Make a Splash for Stephen Jackson


The Milwaukee Bucks took part in a three-way deal with the Charlotte Bobcats and Sacramento Kings in the first round of the 2011 NBA Draft which was highlighted by Stephen Jackson becoming a Buck.

Jackson is joined by Charlotte’s Shaun Livingston, Sacramento’s Beno Udrih and the 19th overall pick Tobias Harris of Tennessee. The Bucks sent Corey Maggette to Charlotte and John Salmon/10th overall pick Jimmer Fredette to the Kings.

Overall, I would have to say the Bucks made an upgrade as well did the Bobcats while the Kings took the brunt of the deal.

Kyle Korver Lights Up Bobcats; Stephen Jackson Still Trashes his Game

kyle korver

Last season the Chicago Bulls finished dead last in the NBA in three point field goal percentage. In the summer they went out and got Kyle Korver from Utah. All he did was lead the league in three point shooting percentage. Actually he broke the NBA season record for three point percentage, with a .536 eclipsing that of former Bull Steve Kerr and his .524 in 1994-95.

This year Korver’s in the top 20 in 3 pt% and the Bulls have a team have improved all the up to 12th in the league. In their 106-94 win over the Charlotte Bobcats Tuesday night, Korver went 5-5 from the field, 3-3 from distance.

But it didn’t stop Bobcats star Stephen Jackson from giving Korver’s abilities an extremely back-handed compliment that came off like a blatant insult:

Bobcats Can’t Win one for MJ, Keep Positive Momentum Going

Michael Jordan

Say this for the Charlotte Bobcats, they know how to get it done against the best in the NBA. It’s the rest of the league they often find themselves struggling with. Prior to last night’s loss to the Chicago Bulls, the Bobcats had won three of five; with those three being over the Eastern Conference leading Boston Celtics, the currently fourth seeded Atlanta Hawks and the defending champion LA Lakers.

Actually, they gave the Lake Show it’s worst loss of the year, 109-89.

But in Chicago, they just couldn’t keep it going against the team with the third best record in the East; a team they had beaten twice already.
