    Default What happened to Anthony Carter?

    He hasn't been playing lately and i thought he brought a defensive spark off the bench.

    Good Question...Dantoni needs to expand his rotation, even for a few minutes here and there

    He plays too much defense for Mike D'antoni to want to play him.

    Can't shoot, and TDA has proven to be a good back up PG to Billups. I think the much better questions is what happened to Bill Walker...

    @Musketeer, that's actually the problem with Pringles, he needs much too much time to decide whether one of his guys is ready to play some more minutes. Walker, while on court, mostly brings some nice O, but even if he's shooting 100% and made easy 6-9 points within just 4-5 minutes, Mike sends him back to the bench. And that's how it works with this couch, I still remember many games when Toney has been playing much better than Rayray but still after a couple of minutes he had to sit back on the bench, he's finally got his chance during Billups' absence, so I'm affraid it can take long time before Bill gets more minutes.

    Evidenced by the offensive specialist that is Jared Jefferies...

    He was sick and unavailable for a game not too long ago, maybe the first Pacers game. I'd assume it's related to that. He was getting more than enough minutes when Billups was out, so I don't see why MDA wouldn't use him sparingly now.

    I think he will get more minutes when we play a team with a bigger guard who needs more defensive attention. A la wade lol

    TD is getting it done right now as well, so that takes away more of his minutes. I did hear he was sick as well not too long ago too. IDK

    jefferies is O'antonis savior... he the only person in the universe that actually thinks O'antoni is adequate at defense...

    so i guess id reward him too with minutes.... when you got a small forward playing center....what do you expect... id respect it more if he played him at the 3 when melo is not in the game... or played balkamn at the three.. or offered brewer minutes at the three....

    O'antoni think JJ helps mask his inability to teach defense....

    i guess he has fooled u

    Dude only quote me when you have something real to say. I'm not interested in having to point out that your entire post is some made up conspiracy that concocted in your head.
