Is This Rock Bottom For The Charlotte Bobcats?


I’m pretty sure I’ve asked this question before… But, is this finally rock bottom for the Charlotte Bobcats?

Four of the ‘Cats last five losses have been by 30 points or more.

Kemba Walker has had three straight games with 15 or less points.

Josh McRoberts played 30 minutes against the Kings.

It’s that bad.

But can it get worse?

Probably not. I don’t see Charlotte losing four of their next five by 30 points or more. Then again, I could see them losing their next five.

At Portland tonight, vs Brooklyn, vs OKC, at Washington (the Washington with John Wall, not the Washington before he came back), and then vs Boston.

If you don’t count Washington as a winnable game for Charlotte, the Bobcats don’t play a game with a reasonable chance of winning until Detroit comes to town March 23rd.

Then, there’s just two winnable games the rest of the way for Charlotte. Orlando on March 27th, then Detroit again April 12th.

So while it’s conceivable that Charlotte has finally hit rock bottom, it’s also conceivable to believe they won’t be out of it until next season.

And while that may seem depressing… Well… it is depressing. There’s no way around it.
