Default Vince Carter off the bench....WTF?!?!?!

does that make any sense at all? is this suppose to send some kind of message or something?


Nets Management: we're the same team every year, always good but never great, i think we need a change....


Lawrence Frank: we could put a package together to get Jermaine O'neal, Pau Gasol etc.


Nets Management:
Nawww...how about we try putting our superstar player(and potential HOFer) off the bench?


Lawrence Frank: I guess we could try that...sounds like a productive step forward

might be worth a try.

the nets have been getting off to slow starts this season; when they do get leads in the beginnings of games, they're incapable of holding them. often, kidd helps orchestrate an early lead, and then he and the starters rest. other team comes back within a few minutes.

if you have carter fresher and playing with that second unit, maybe he could help keep the pressure on the other team.

Calling Vince Carter a "potential HOFer" is laughable anyways.

he'll still get his 35 MPG.

think of this as a Manu Ginobili Jason Terry to the bench kind of thing.

because Kidd's minutes are monitored and not allowed to spiral out of control, Kidd's rest patterns are very obvious.

moreover, Carter usually plays the entire first quarter and the first three minutes of the second before sitting.


with RJ alone on the floor with a bunch of backups and no competent backup PG right now, the offense gets lost, Nachbar can't hit a shot with defense in his face, none of the big men can do jack besides SWilliams...

they feel with Carter coming off the bench he can stay on thecourt during those stretches to combat falling into a hole because of terrible offense

plus this might lead to a motivated Carter. A motivated Carter is the worst thing that can happen to the opposing team. Say what you want about him, he has the potential to easily dominate games and win them for you too. But you need a motivated Carter for that...a motivated Carter drives in, goes for dunks and doesn't settle for jumpers.
