Until this year, the 1972-73 Philadelphia 76ers were the model of futility — 9-73. A .110 winning percentage. A team led by Fred Carter and John Block (when Block was healthy) that had a lot of role-playing veterans on the downside of their career.
But if Charlotte loses its final two games — at Orlando Wednesday and at home against the Knicks Thursday — they will set the new record. Michael Jordan’s team (he is the owner) will be 7-59, a .106 winning percentage. The Bobcats best chance for a win seemed to be Monday night, but they got beat handily by a weak Wizards team. The record seems there.
Kevin Loughery coached the 76ers for half of their ill-fated season, he’s seen the Bobcats and he thinks his team was better, he told Fox Sports Florida.
