Michael Jordan is, arguably, the best player in NBA history. Now he is indisputably the owner of the worst team in NBA history.

On Thursday his Charlotte Bobcats lost their 23rd straight, and final game of the season for a 7-59 record and a winning percentage of just .106, worse than the .110 posted by the 1972/73 Philadelphia 76ers.

Some argue the team is going through unavoidable rebuilding. Tom Sorenson of the The Charlotte Observer is blunter. "They just have less talent than the other team every night."
