I was pretty satisfied with his performance the first game, but when his hammy cramped up I did think to myself, "maybe the injury rumors were true." I soon realized though that the cramp was only a result of playing way too many minutes after that much time off.
I remember after that I started freaking and was soo pissed at him but then I saw him back the next game and Was a little confused but he soonly prooved That he belongs to be a Net and that he wasn't gonna sit all year long on the bench.
his defense has been better than i thought it would be since he arrived.
perhaps he realises that if he takes it easy he'll look like an ass next to kidd, RJ and twin busting their butts out there.
the biggest thing that bothers me is that he doesn't run as much as he could. with kidd as your PG you should be running all day long, and if he gets tired then let wright or boki or someone else step in to run and put pressure on the defense.
Yeah but a lot of that stuff has to do with Heart. He has to learn to push himself, he could have like 20 pts of just fast break if he would run and let Kidd throw it from half to him for an alley. Hes very fas and can jump over most people. I wish he had the heart of RJ, RJ runs and runs and runs, then he gets back and he plays hard defence, thats one of the reasons why RJ is so damn good. Now if he could rub a little off onto Carter that be great. But I kinda think its to late in his career to pretty much change him that much. But if he can add some more to it, that be great.
if you watch the games, Carter did run last year, but that was only if certain plays had Kidd and RJ crashing the boards or if carter just happened to be out on the perimeter when the opponents missed a shot.
usually the play calls for Carter to play in teh midpost area, so once a rebound is collected (he may even have it) he is not in prime position to run the break.
Vince seems to have taken Kittles's role in the fast break with the pull up 3. When he knocks them down I love it, but when he doesn't and continues to shoot, it does irk me a bit, but I understand he's doing it for the team and only trying to heat up to help us win.
