    DeMarre Carroll Appreciation Thread.

    On a night when the Jazz starters were a disgrace because of lack of energy, this guy came in and busted his butt. I don't always like Carroll, but tonight he was an absolute joy to watch. His defense was tenacious, he rebounded the ball, he dove to the ground, and just left everything on the court. This team would be so much better if they gave the effort that Carroll gave tonight. This might not happen again, but, Mr. Carroll, I salute you.

    17 pts, 5 brds, 2 stls, (6/6, 4/4, 1/1) = +11 for the game!

    Got to give props to Demarre. Ill bet he SMD's as he sits on the bench and watches his teammates plod along, wondering what does it take to get a few minutes in the game.
    He may never be the star, but he gives it his all whenever he steps on the court. I can't fault a guy like that...

    He always busted his butt every goddamn minute he was given on the floor. Stats do not tell how hard working he is. He always deserves minutes. I always appreciated DeMarre.

    Most certainly the silver lining on this game. Not only did he bust his but, but he did it on national television in front of thousands of people. I think he just guaranteed himself a contract with that performance. Good for him I will always root for Carroll, even if he and the Jazz part paths.

    I'm a fan. Carroll looks awkward as **** but finds a way to produce results regardless. I honestly would like to see the guy start at the 3. He seems like the kind of guy who's capable of developing holes in his game -- kind of a Matt Harpring type player.

    Good things happen when Carroll is on the floor.

    He said in the post game interview that he models his game after players like Bruce Bowen.
    If we ever had a Bruce Bowen on our hands, hello deep playoff run :-)

    Damn it i dont want to like him, but how can you not after a game like last night.

    The play that stood out to me was when philly was running downcourt with the ball for an easy transition bucket and carroll came out of nowwhere from behind and hit the ball away from the ball handler.

    He earned more minutes definately. (my burks homerism makes it hard for me to admit that but its true)

    He works really hard and generally makes an impact. I like him. And as much as I hate Burks wasting on the bench, I've come to accept that no great strides can be made with the current coach anyway.

    Demarre was great last night but once he starts shooting like **** again everybody will get pissed he's on the court again.
    Just like two weeks ago.
