Screwed up for the first time? Just because the Celtics won those games
doesn't mean Carroll was making the right decisions. Since Hunter showed
the world that he could indeed play, and that he can rebound with
anyone, Carroll has completely buried him -- four straight games now.
Didn't see last night's game, but I will assume since the Celts were
outrebounded by a dozen that Hunter could have helped in something more
than six minutes.
Carroll consistently just forgets about people for whole halves or
entire games. Hunter, Mihm and Jiri in particular, and it seems to have
little to do with how they're playing. He's not getting Pierce rest,
he's not getting the rookies experience, he'll play the same five for an
entire half because he has a feeling.
I'm glad to see the Celtics open things up since O'Brien left, but there
are thousands of coaches who could do that. I was torn between the
Celtics making the playoffs or going into the lottery. I think now I
have to root for the lottery, just so that meathead Carroll doesn't win
a round in the playoffs and get an Obie contract.
So Carroll screwed for the first time in this run. It just was a mistake in
judgment. He did the same thing with the Knicks but of course, they don't have
the dominant big man so it was the right move then. I think that deluded his
judgement. He lost the vision.
