The Charlotte Bobcats will have one last chance at home against the New York Knicks to avoid the title of becoming the worst team in league history, according to the Associated Press.

"If we get a win it will be the best thing that has happened to us all season," Bobcats coach Paul  Silas told the AP.

Currently, Charlotte's record stands at  7-58 (.106), and a loss tonight would surpass the 39-year-old record held by the 1972-73 Philadelphia 76ers, who ended their season 9-73 (.110) in a full regular season. WIth a win tonight, not only would the Bobcats avoid the title, but it would also save Michael Jordan, arguably the greatest NBA player, from being called the worst owner in league history.  Ironically, a loss tonight  would mark the Bobcats' 23rd consecutive loss, the same number Jordan wore with the Bulls.
