Face it, Wince. You'll score 81 all right, in your wet dreams.
Karma is a beeyotch....
Before he even took his first dribble on Wednesday night, Carter had a tough time in Los Angeles. He had been taken to task for comments he made about Kobe Bryant's 81-point performance Sunday night. One L.A. columnist ripped Carter for saying that Bryant's outing could have a negative impact on youngsters who will try to score 80 points themselves instead of playing team basketball.
Carter had also said that he was incredibly impressed by Bryant's historic game - he posted the most points in a game since Wilt Chamberlain notched 100. Carter also said it was great for the league and fans, but that seems to have gone unnoticed.
"This goes along with who we are as a society," Lakers coach Phil Jackson told the Los Angeles Times. "Somebody does something exceptional, people are looking for ways to denigrate them."
Bryant told the L.A. Times: "My message (to the youth) is that if you work hard, you can go beyond anyone's expectations, even your own."
When Carter was introduced in the starting lineups, he drew loud boos.
"I wasn't trying to put down what was accomplished," said Carter, who defended Bryant yesterday. "What was said was that kids who think they can be Kobe Bryant and score 81 points in their high school basketball game, they can't.
"I don't know what's going on or where it comes from," Carter added. "It was basically, `This is a great accomplishment and kids, don't try this at home.' "
