To all the A.C. haters, read this...

For those of you who regularly follow this blog, you probably read my defense of Anthony Carter earlier this month. My argument on Carter's behalf was that we shouldn't blame the guy with a $1 million, one-year contract, but rather the guy with the $15 million, five-year contract who plays him too many minutes. Furthermore, Carter plays his heart out when he gets minutes and doesn't complain whatsoever when his minutes are pulled.

As the Nuggets have gotten pummeled twice by the Lakers in the playoffs this week, the A.C. hatred has resurfaced numerous times in the comments. In an attempt to make all the A.C. haters feel bad, I strongly recommend reading this brief but insightful article about A.C.'s road to the NBA, written by the Orange County Register's Marcia Smith.
