Coach Of Worst-Ever NBA Team To Resign
Lex 18 - almost 5 years
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Paul Silas is out as Charlotte Bobcats coach Paul Silas after the worst season in NBA history. Team spokesman Josh Rosen confirmed the decision Monday. Silas just completed the final year of his contract. A news conference was called for 3:45 p.m. EDT. Charlotte finished 7-59 for the worst winning percentage in league history (.106). The 68-year-old Silas told The Associated Press late in the year he wanted to "see things through" and coach one more season. It's unclear who'll replace Silas, who leaves with a 32-88 record at Charlotte. Silas was in a difficult situation heading into the season with a young and inexperienced team, plus a shortened offseason that limited practice time. Injuries to Corey Maggette, D.J. Augustin and Gerald Henderson did not help. Late in the season, Silas was involved in an altercation with forward Tyrus Thomas, shoving him in the locker room following a loss. The two had gotten into an argument and had to be separated. Pla ...

NBA: Bobcats on track to be worst team ever
Salisbury Post - almost 5 years
Associated Press CHARLOTTE— The dreaded day for the Bobcats is fast approaching: When Charlotte could earn the dubious distinction of becoming the worst team in NBA history. Guard Matt Carroll warned his teammates about it two weeks ago. He knew then if Charlotte didn’t win a game it would risk becoming an historic embarrassment. If Charlotte loses its six remaining games the Bobcats will finish with the worst winning percentage in league history (.106), a dubious honor that’s currently held by the 1972-73 Philadelphia 76ers, who finished 9-73 (.110.) “We are desperate to get a win,” Carroll said. “No one wants to be known as the worst team in NBA history. I’ve been talking about this with guys on the team for last two weeks telling them we at least need to get one more win. I think guys at first heard it but weren’t thinking it was going to happen. “But now everybody is aware it could happen, so we better get a win.” It won’t be easy. The Bobcats (7-53) host Chicag ...

Atlanta Hawks: Hawks 120, Bobcats 93
ajc - almost 5 years
Sure, it was just the Bobcats, whose minimal chances to win evaporated when Corey Maggette didn’t suit up and D.J. Augustin left the game after just 11 minutes. Then again, the Hawks beat them down with none of their starters playing more than 30 minutes, Joe Johnson scoring 16 points on 13 shots and a so-so effort on the boards. Aside from another lax defensive effort in the first quarter, there wasn’t much not to like. The Hawks attacked the basket, shared the ball (and took care of it), played with pace and got to the free-throw line while opening up the big lead in the first half. They even avoided a typical sluggish start to the third quarter and then the starters got to watch the reserves finish things off. “I was really happy that we were able to rest those guys in the fourth quarter,” Larry Drew said. “It was a good game all around. I thought from start to finish we executed our game plan.” Well, maybe not the start. Why is it the Hawks always seem OK with a …

Bobcats at Atlanta Hawks: Game thread

Vladimir Radmanovic (back) is out. Jannero Pargo (appendectomy) and Jerry Stackhouse (personal) are available. Corey Maggette is out and Tyrus Thomas (jaw) is questionable for the Bobcats. Larry Drew on how he plans to manage Pargo’s minutes: “I’ve got to get him back acclimated. I can tell he’s anxious to play. We’ll see how he does with his wind. I will keep a close eye on him.” Drew on managing minutes for Josh Smith and Joe Johnson over the final 12 games: “I don’t want to necessarily rest those guys but I do want to cut down on their minutes. Just as long as we can stay efficient with what we are doing. With 12 games left it’s important to try to win every game but at same time don’t want to pile minutes on guys.” Al Horford said he’s “sore” a day after his first practice: “I expected it. At least it’s a step in the right direction. Still no contact but I felt good out there.” He said he’s next scheduled to see his doctor a week before the playoffs begin and still …
