It's been in interviews that have been replayed over and over, I forget who the guys name is.
No .. I know what interview u're talking about .. John Thopmson one on TNT... and I do know well enough that's been relayed again and again.. buty maybe you should go back to the interview and check out the question and Carter's response to it fully. Yes Carter did say that he ddn't try hard enough... but the question was about Carter's own game and skills etc.. and whether he could have become an even better player with the potential (talent, atheleticism, smarts) he had. John Thompson didn't ask him if he had worked hard DURING the game..He asked him whether he had worked hard enough at his game .. and here was Carter's response..
"In years past, no. I was fortunate to have the talent. You get spoiled when you're able to do a lot of things. You see that you don't have to work at it."
I've no phukin clue how some people can honestly misinterpret that statement into something like "I didn't try hard in games, I was disinterested blah blah blah" . Man.. hate a player all you want but don't make up stuff against him.
