DeMarre Carroll was quite clutch in the Nets overtime loss to the Pacers, but I can’t help but think about how much more awesome it would have been if he had been playing against the Raptors while doing his clutch things.
Remember, Raptors fans will forever hate this guy for stealing money from the team and not being even 1/4th as good as advertised. I don’t think there’s a single Raptors fan in Canada who sees that Carroll had a good game and thinks to themselves “I’m happy for DeMarre Carroll right now”. It just doesn’t happen. I’m guessing they’ll get triggered by any indication that Carroll is playing well and then flock to one of their preferred internet hangouts to talk trash about him.
The forgotten fifth member of the Hawks’ All-Star Crew can play as well as he wants for the Nets and whatever other teams he plays for in the future, but his legacy will always be “the guy whom Raptors fans hated more than any other”.
