Dave D'Alessandro writes he has never seen Vince Carter as down as he was Monday night and then again Tuesday morning at shootaround. Carter, he writes, knows he let the team down. More troubling, writes the Star-Ledger beat writer, is that Carter "doesn’t break guys down as easily as he used to" and "always crumples like a house of cards once the second defender meets him". D'Alessandro also thinks that Mikki Moore may now be a better player than Shareef Abdur-Rahim! Who knew?
