Default Did BC screw up?

After watching Carter play against us with the Magic did we get the wrong guy ? Carter is head and shoulders better then Hedo....we missed the boat here big time . We get guys that other teams just were willing to give up. Hedo and Jack so far they under performing. I wish we had Carter back instead of hedo because I strongly believe Carter would have made our present team minus hedo a top 2 in the east.

Hedo had a bad game. He's hardly a major problem. And Carter hasn't exactly lit up the league. Indy was not at all willing to give up Jack. They hated to do so.

Come back and try again later.

Maybe something along the lines of having the chance to trade Jose when there was a big demand for him?

Is this a joke?

Jesus Christ, give it a rest! Hedo is one of our better players. It's always funny to me that a player has a decent game and BC fucked up by "not getting him instead". He was 2-11 in the first half and 9-24 overall. He didn't have that great a game, yet people are all over his nutsack.


To answer your question, noooooooo BC didn't make a mistake. Mainly because no way Carter was coming back.

StooooooooooooP the insanity.

Hedo's not playing to the level of his contract, but that may change. The jury's out on that one.

As for Carter, he was traded to Orlando so he wouldnt have a choice of his destination. It could've been Toronto but there's just too much history there, it wouldnt be worth his while or ours.

Turkoglu- 14.4ppg/4.9rpg/3.6apg (41 3pt%) 10Mil/yr


Turkoglu is younger, averaging more rebounds, more assists and shooting for a better %.

I'm not saying Turkoglu is better, but seriously?? STFU about Carter....he's never coming back.

Go look at the thread documenting the now exiled players that were on our roster last year. It's a testament to the stellar overhaul performed by BC this summer.

Default Carter or Hedo

Lets forget the way Vince left so set your feelings aside if we had a choice based on our team today would you rather have Vince or Hedo. Lets also say it was a 3 year contract.

carter was pretty bad on Sunday, we've lost despite of him, not because of him. He shot way too much, and that's against a defense that's not that great. He missed a lot at the time, which even 2 years ago wouldn't have happened. I really felt that he had shown his age this game. Maybe he's still rusty after the injury, but I wasn't impressed at all.

As far as hedu, probably some people had higher expectations from him. So far, he's doing what was expected from him, not sure what more do you want. He's still feeling his way, and is slowed down by injuries and that long summer. But for the most part, I liked what I've seen from him. He's not worse on D than jamario is, and he's a load on offense, despite being a little slower. Once he's 100%. he will have better stats than he did in Orlando.

Hedo is good and all but for the money we're paying him he hasn't been consistant enough

He was 9-24

Hedo is cheaper, younger, is averaging more rebounds, more assists. Like i said, i'm not saying Hedo is better overall but i'm happy with Turk and he's not even 100%. Fuck Vince Carter.

Carter is making 7Mil more the Hedo and is shooting worse, getting less RPG and less APG.

No he wasn't. And we couldn't have traded for him. And Carter coming back is never gonna happen. But whatever.

I could swear we've already had this dumb ass discussion?

Since this is a Carter thread I have to post. It's been overdone 100x this summer.

Hedo is not worthy to tie Carter's shoes.

It's like comparing Clyde Drexler to Toni Kukoc.

You seem to not realize that in the Hedo deal we not only got Hedo, but Wright and Bellinelli. So would I rather have Hedo + Wright + Bellinelli or Carter, not a hard choice, even if it didn't involve Wright & Bellinelli I would still pick Hedo over Whince Carter.

More like Dominique Wilkins to Detlef Schrempf

I think that works way better even the stats are closer LOL
