The worst season in NBA history is in the books, and it’s time to look at the players who made it all possible.
In the coming days I’ll take a look at every single Bobcats player (and I mean every single one), grade their season, and take a look into their future.
The other day I looked at Jamario Moon’s (brief) season. Today, it’s Matt Carroll’s turn.
This season, Carroll was Charlotte’s shooter that couldn’t shoot. He played just 11.2 minutes a game, and hit less than 20 percent of his three point attempts. He also shot just 33 percent from the field, and scored less than three points a game.
His offensive rating (points produced per 100 possessions, was a dismal (but much better than Jamrio Moon’s) 84 and he averaged less than three assists per 36 minutes.
I never really noticed him do anything on the defensive end of the floor worth remembering, and his defensive rating (points produced allowed per 100 possessions) backs that up; It was a lousy 112 and he averaged less than half a block and one steal per 36 minutes.
He averaged a negative assist-to-turnover ratio per 36 minutes.
He averaged less than two rebounds a game.
He had a win share per 48 minutes (estimate of wins produced per 48 minutes) of negative 0.5.
Carroll will be with the ‘Cats for one more year unless he doesn’t pick up his player option this off season, and his role probably won’t change much. Charlotte probably won’t take him back in 2013/14, though.
