Amare Stoudemire Dunked on Tyrus Thomas and the Charlotte Bobcats Are Officially the Worst NBA Team, Ever

While not quite the facial Stoudemire delivered to Anthony Tolliver a few years ago, this jam on Tyrus Thomas was impressive. The Knicks – minus starters Carmelo Anthony and Tyson Chandler – put on a dunking exhibition and rolled over the Bobcats, 104-84. Charlotte ended the season 7-59 with 23 straight losses. Michael Jordan’s Bobcats truly are the worst.

A 7-59 record in this lockout-shortened season (a .106 winning percent) slips below the 1972-73 Philadelphia 76ers, who went 9-73 (.110). The Bobcats’ point-differential – minus-13.8 points per game heading into the finale – was the second-worst since the NBA’s merger with the American Basketball Association in 1976. Only the 1992-93 Dallas Mavericks were worse, with a minus-15.2 point-differential.

New York’s win plus Philadelphia’s loss means the Knicks will open the playoffs against the Heat. We’ll have a full playoff rundown with picks and later.
