The NBA Playoffs begin Saturday afternoon after another highly entertaining basketball season. Here are the first round matchups, previews and predictions for the Eastern Conference.
The Charlotte Bobcats and owner Michael Jordan held a press conference on Tuesday announcing that the NBA’s youngest (and least successful) franchise will become the Charlotte Hornets.
It’s fair to say the Charlotte Bobcats are a colossal mess, and that designation isn’t going to change any time soon. New broke on Tuesday that the franchise will part ways with head coach Mike Dunlap after just one season, throwing the team further into turmoil.
The New Orleans Hornets came into the NBA Draft lottery with the fourth best odds to win it. They left with the top pick in the upcoming NBA draft, which will undoubtedly be used to draft Anthony Davis.
The Hornets have the top pick, yes; but it does not arrive in NOLA without some controversy and conspiracy theories.
With last night’s 104-84 loss to the New York Knicks, the Charlotte Bobcats completed the NBA season with a record of 7-59 and a .106 winning percentage.
The Bobcats broke the record for worst winning percentage in NBA history, sinking below the 1972-73 Philadelphia 76ers who posted a 9-73 record (.110).
