Bobcats on track to end up as worst NBA team ever
NBA » If Charlotte loses last six games, it clinches worst winning percentage in NBA history


< Previous Page


Carroll said team spirit is remarkably high considering the team’s struggles this season.

He said the difficult part is knowing the Bobcats let some games they should have won slip away, including a 75-67 loss to the Hornets on Monday night.

Although other teams are sure to rest their stars down the stretch, Charlotte’s best chance to win might have come against the Hornets.

"They’re a good team, but we look at them as similar to us," said Bobcats guard Gerald Henderson. "This is a game we wanted to win. You look on the schedule and we felt like this was one we could really get. That’s why it’s even more frustrating."

And more frustration could be ahead.

The Bobcats, who hav already clinched the worst record in the league this season, need to shoot better than 30 percent — as they did against the Hornets — to have a remote chance to win.

"The schedule is not going to get easier," Carroll said. "We have to believe we’re going to get one game coming up. It sounds silly to think let’s win one game, but it’s kind of been that feeling all year. For us, it’s been hard to get one game all year."

Getting one now is imperative to the Bobcats because the alternative is something they don’t want to think about.

"You never, ever, ever want that label of being the worst team," Carroll said. "It’s just a bad thing."
