Will the expansion Charlotte Bobcats be the worst team in the history of the NBA?

That seems to be the growing consensus around the league after watching the team in the preseason. Yes, they went 3-5 in October, but that just means that the Bobcats' starters outplayed guys trying to make other teams.

Once the real season tips off tonight in Charlotte, everyone is expecting the Bobcats to be in for a world of hurt.
