My frustration with Matt Carroll
Anyone else catch the end of the Spurs/Lakers game?
This is the second time I see the Spurs play this season..and just happens that in both games (the other game being against Phoenix on Christmas Day) Roger Mason stepped up and made the clutch shot to win them the game.
I looked up his stats..they are pretty ridiculous this season
You get all this ..for $3.5MM (according to ESPN, no other info on his contract)
Granted...Mason is playing a lot more minutes than Carroll...and this is his first season posting big numbers. But there is a trend for him.
Meanwhile, Carroll, just seems to be getting worse
And you get all this for $6MM..and would you trust the ball to Caroll for a clutch shot to win the game?
I just think this is ridiculous, both players are approx same height/weight. It really bothers me how much he gets paid for minimal contribution. Even in his best season, Carroll wasn't posting the numbers that Mason is posting right now. This is even bigger considering that Mason has been playing in the Western conference (tougher teams).
This guy needs to go, seriously. He is taking away salary space and not contributing in proportion to what he is getting paid. Maybe Bonnell needs to rip on him so that the guy finds some motivation to step it up
