08:08 AM ET 10.22 | As if the Bobcats' previous season wasn't disheartening enough, they have another dubious record staring them in the face. Following a 7-59 season there's been abundant change. ... Still, they're on a 23-game losing streak, and that didn't stop with last season. If they fail to win one of their first four regular-season games they'll break the Cleveland Cavaliers' record, set the season after LeBron James bolted out of Ohio. This will be a story, locally and nationally. Take it from a Charlottean who slogged through that 26-game Cavs losing streak in the 2010-11 season. "It's a story. It will be a story," Antawn Jamison told me. "That team is owned by Michael Jordan -- the best player in the history of the game -- and they're on that streak."

Michael, you're getting exactly what you've earned; garbage in-garbage out.

Hopefully one player will bust out and make them respectable. I also can't resist the joy that Knicks play them a 'a few times' - there gotta be an easy night....

Not much for Charlotte fans to be happy about.

There would be if Jordan were to sell the team!!!!! Jordan was a great player, but as an owner, he doesn't know talent!!!!

Naw...the new regime here is much different. MJ got rid of his "yes men" and got some real bball guys in here to run the show. He seems to have backed up tremendously since Rich Cho was hired last summer...cant live in the past, only prepare for the future my friend!

I hope you are right. I honestly have no clue what MJ is trying to do in Charlotte.

You will see (crosses fingers)...it really has been different. Even the reports we get from camp are, true only time will tell but the 1st thing was to red the organization of ppl who were in "awe" of MJ. The team was poorly constructed but I truly believe in Cho's vision

He doesn't need to know talent. He just needs to get out of the way and let his GM and/or VP of Player Operations determine the fit and needs of the team.

Jordan has more than tarnished his legacy between the Bobcats and the Wizards.

So what else is news?
