I’ve said my stance, I don’t need to beat a dead horse, but to me he is beyond flawed, he is a 10 point opposition run. I’d give an endless list of G league guys a look over someone I view as totally unplayable.
Again, to me he is more along the lines of “accidental saboteur”, not merely bad, but it’s like being 4 on 6.I swear we’ve got a ton of posters who don’t understand that backups are typically worse than starters and third stringers are usually even worse yet . . . weird.
I go back and forth on Carter. He came with great defensive intensity and eventually improved his three ball. But what I saw as I watched more of him was a lot of frenetic action that rarely did anything. He would dribble all over a three foot area, going between the legs and just literally go nowhere. Useless if it wasn’t an open catch and shoot or wide open lane to drive. And defensively he hustled all over but it never seemed to result in a turnover or truly bother anyone he was guarding. I think his rep for defense faaaaarrrrr exceeded the reality of it.Yeah.
I mean, I'd take Payton over Carter any day.
I like this guy (courtesy of Reddit) as a 2 way player with some upside. Dude's got tree trunks for legs and some explosiveness.We may disagree about Payton but do you have any power forward candidates who you like who haven't agree to sign?
