During the 1995-96 season, the Chicago Bulls, led by Michael Jordan, finished the regular season with the best record in NBA history, winning 72 games (.878 win%).

Now, 16 years later, another Jordan-led team, the Charlotte Bobcats, are trying to avoid finishing the season with the worst record in the history of the NBA.

And mired in a 21-game losing streak, and remaining games against the Orlando Magic (Wed.) and New York Knicks (Thurs.) it doesn’t look good for Air Jordan and his Not-So-Merry Men.

Here are the worst teams in NBA history…
