Could Oklahoma Thunder Finish with Worst Record in History?

They finished 9-73, the worst mark in NBA history. But now Carter believes the Thunder could challenge that.

Oklahoma City, at 4-29, is on pace to win 10 games. Before Wednesday’s 107-100 win over Golden State, the Thunder was on pace to finish 8-74.

"I think so," Carter said when asked if the Thunder could finish with fewer than nine wins. "They just don’t have enough talent to compete."

But that doesn’t mean Carter wants Oklahoma City, which plays host to the Nuggets tonight, to knock the 76ers out of the record book.

"I would like to keep that record," he said. "Immortality is gained in so many different ways."
