RE: questions about the lakers game
Quick question, do you think carroll is an idiot?
I have to agree, I have been unimpressed with carroll. For a guy who
has to save his job, you think he would try anything, even
unconventional things to get hired full time. He has nothing to lose,
so why play the same crappy players that got the last coach fired? I
guess that's why he is a b-ball coach and not a neurosurgeon. He is
better than o'brien, but then again so is a piece of lint.

Hunter didn't play b/c Caroll is an idiot.

Caroll is an idiot, for starters. Throw in the fact that Caroll is an
idiot and you've got all you need to know.

Tommy should have said "Caroll is an idiot"! At first i was a little
miffed, but hey it was fun. I think he only did it b/c he saw -- and
the replays showed -- that by the time he got to 1/2 court not one
Laker moved down to defend him. He made an almost as fun dunk on his
own rebound. He should have gotten yanked for a few minutes, but as I
always say...Carroll is an idiot.

Did I mention Carroll is an idiot?
Not playing Hunter is just inexcuseable. He was averaging 12 rebounds
for a stretch of 4 games (or so) and now he can't get in? Possession
after possession last night (especially in the 4th quarter) the C's
took a decent shot but missed (as any team is wont to do) and there was
ABSOLUTELY NO rebounding. I think this is b/c most of the C's -- esp.
Blount & McCarty -- have NO CLUE on how to box out...something Hunter
is tremendously skilled at. I thought when Waltah came in at the 6 min
mark, followed by Jones that Carroll was going to go deep into the
bench since this was the back end of a back-to-back. But Hunter never
got off the bench -- this despite the fact that Hunter was certainly
fresher than Waltah having played only 7 minutes against the Knicks.
I'm done with John Carroll -- i used to, like Ryan, go down to the bar
and watch the Celtics. I've done it through thick and (certainly
through) thin. But I just can't take it anymore. Watching McCarty
flail around while Hunter languishes on the bench is more than i can
handle. After getting such a taste of the hustle, bustle, and talent
Hunter brings to the table it makes victories like NY unenjoyable and
losses like last night unfathomable.
And while we're on the subject of Carroll being an idiot...Shaq gets
his first foul around the 9 minute mark and we don't start running
plays right at him to pick up his 2nd foul?
John Carroll is an idiot. Ainge should fire him and let Lester Conner
run the show, take it over himself or let Michael Stewart coach the
I hate John Carroll.
