Is there a rule against having Matt up in the Lowe's Practice court staying warm, knocking down 184 Ft's in a row, shooting some 3's, etc....He could get to the floor in about 20 seconds for late game situations. Either to receive fouls if we are up so he can knock down some FT's or to shoot 3's to cut into a lead.
He should be able to cover a guy like Gary Neal. We let the spurs turn that game into a shooting contest and there jump shooters where better then ours. When the other team has a great shooter in we need to leave his man out of the defensive rotation anyway.
A bunch of athletic guys are good, except when you are shooting jumpers instead of taking it to the hole. Somebody has to spread the floor to make it easy for guys to take it to the hole. I still think we should trade Carroll and replace him with Chris Lofton though. He is a better shooter and has more range, is way more clutch, and one of the best at shooting with a hand in his face.
BCP needs to start selling "Free Matt Carroll" shirts....wrongfully convicted to a life of DNP-CD's. Or at least bumper stickers.
