NBA Pickup of the Night: April 1

Farid ForoughiCorrespondent IApril 2, 2008


Do you pick up Carter in your league, or do you not?

The Nuggets are a dynamic team, but Carter is behind AI, Melo, Camby, and Kenyon Martin in taking shots and getting stats.

Well, Carter proved tonight he doesn’t need the ball to produce and should be on your fantasy team. Sure, Carter only had eight points on 3-5 from the field and 2-3 from the line. But he not only helped out with 10 dimes and two rebounds, but he also got an amazing six steals and one block, all while turning the ball over only once.

Not bad at all for the guy whose name you can’t remember on the Nuggets.


The rookie got the start tonight over Rip Hamilton and showed what he is made of.

He got to the line 13 times and made 12 free throws.

13 TIMES!!! And he’s a rookie!

He also shot 50 percent from the field and added two rebounds, three assists, a steal, and a block. Not bad at all. Also, playing 33 minutes always helps the stat line. He definitely looked better than fellow youngster Aaron Afflalo tonight.
