Comment and analysis on all things Charlotte

RIP Charlotte Bobcats

Somewhere out there today Rufus D. Lynx is sending his resume out, seeking alternative employment now that Charlotte’s NBA franchise is replacing him with a big bug.

As the Bobcats, in 10 years, Charlotte’s second NBA franchise produced a meager .361 regular-season winning percentage (293 wins and 515 losses) with but two winning seasons, the worst season in NBA history (lowest winning percentage), some truly inept decisions (see: Adam Morrison, Sam Vincent, Mike Dunlap…), ugly uniforms, and zero playoff wins. Hopefully the return of the Hornets brand will bring Charlotte’s long-suffering basketball fans a bit more to cheer about.

    I have a strange stirring in the Force telling me that with the Return of the Hornets will be a return of Arena envy and another tax increase to pay for an arena upgrade to keep the Hornets in Charlotte/get the All Star Game. Darth Aire rises to replace Darth Shinn. Threatens to move with the Panthers to L.A. after the Clippers move to Seattle. in 2020 Hornets become the Norte Mexico Cucarachas after Southern California secedes.

    Still don’t care about the NBA, except to write this.

    clayj ditto, except I’ll point out that the author is confusing “Percentage” with “Ratio” because ratio * 100 = percent.
