In his interview Thursday night with analyst John Thompson carter was asked if he pushed himself as hard as he should have in Toronto.

"In years past, no," said Carter, now a member of the New Jersey Nets. "I was fortunate to have the talent . . . you get spoiled when you're able to do a lot of things. You see that you don't have to work at it.

"Now, with the all the injuries, I have to work harder. I'm a little hungrier. Getting a fresh start has made me want to attack the basket."

Carters is posting big numbers in New Jersey since the trade averaging 22.5 points in 40.3 minutes. A statistic that is not sitting well with many Raptor fans who saw a slower, oft-injured Carter score 15.9 points in 30.4 minutes before the trade.

============================================

Well, both him AND his cousin will be booed out of TO. That just isn't cool.

Wow. Collects max money to mail it in because he's unhappy. What a fucking douchebag.

EDIT: Looks like some of his former teammates in Toronto aren't too happy to hear him admit this.

Looks like being selfish and lazy runs in the family. T-Mac's mailing it in, too. I wonder how many other guys this would apply to.
