No No No No Just NO
from his Grantland column:
Status: $5.94 million under the cap ($13 million including DeSagana Diop's amnesty)
Current 2-guards: Gerald Henderson, Matt Carroll, Michael Jordan
Notes: Would the Bobcats make the playoffs with Afflalo, Corey Maggette, D,J, Augustin, Boris Diaw, Ty Thomas, Kemba Walker and (Marv Albert voice) "Bis-mack Bee-YOMMMMM-bo!!!!!"? Of course not. Are you crazy? Here's your logical home for Vince Carter: He could sign for more than he deserves, go home to Carolina and be a major part of yet another disappointing Bobcats season. More on this in a second.
i like simmons and i think he knows a hellauva lot about the league, but he is way off here. no way we sign vince. makes zero sense and he isn't even liked a whole lot here anyway.
now that ish was funny...
No way in hell we sign Vince.
Cho is not that stupid.
Vince? When he'll be in front of Hendo when Jordan clearly stated that he has high expectations on Hendo and thinks he can be an all-star caliber player?
Proud Australian Bobcats Fan!!!
It's not often I think a Bobcats player is actually underrated (except early Gerald), but in this same article Simmons vastly underrates Hendo. His list of SG ratings goes pretty deep and didn't have him anywhere. I understand why he wouldn't have had him in the up and comers yet but he should be up there somewhere and he is definitely a reason we shouldn't even think about signing Carter.
Simmons ask yourself one question. Apart from whats good for VC. Why would the Bobcats ever want him?
