    I want to know your theories. He must have said something to him that Pop didn't like, otherwise Pop wouldn't have rookies active over him when he played Dante Cunningham and charity case Quincy Pondexter last year. Carroll must have gotten on Pop's bad side. Did he vote for Trump like Dedmon?

    maybe carroll asked the young guys about scoring blow and pop caught wind of that.

    just saw his twitter for the first time ever and he's like, the most positive nba player weird pop wouldn't be playing him considering he played dante and quincy.

    Just saw his twitter too. He's like, "take advantage of your opportunity, today." It's not what he said, but he probably just doesn't get it.

    I don't buy that he's washed up; he was a good player during his time with the Nets and looked decent in the PS. For him to not even play is pretty damn shocking.

    Probably said something like, "Trump is going to make America great again".

    Seriously though...this whole saga is just weird. Pop has always run some weird rotations, but I've never seen the Spurs relegate their "big offseason acquisition" to the third string. Morris deserves a lot of blame with the whole Bertans things, but let's not forget that also resulted in the Spurs restructuring things with Carroll so the interest was obviously there.

    Something went down. Either he and Pop don't see eye-to-eye, he is hurt, or he is straight up washed...but I find the latter hard to believe considering he was a decent role player as recently as last season.

    That said...he hasn't looked good even in the spot minutes he has gotten. He had like one decent preseason game, and otherwise he just seems slow and lost on the court.

    Having less of an impact than Dante Cunningham last season. PATFO is dysfunctional. Not only did they mess up the Bertans - Morris trade. They messed up signing Carroll $7m for 3 seasons. $14m for Gay for 2 seasons. Murray $15m+ for 4 seasons. They have no more cash to sign the other folks.

    Pop has become a tyrant . I find it very difficult to believe that he's unable to play at all considering he had very solid seasons with the nets. The fact that he desires to play seem to indicate that he believe he's capable and furthermore, even if he did decline, he would still be better than Marco

    I can't believe he's regressed beyond what Pondexter and Cunningham provided last year. He really hasn't even had a chance to prove what he can do in real games, and God knows Pop's leash is long with guys like Marco and Forbes, so the fact our big off season acquisition is a constant DNP makes zero sense. Pop's got me scratching my head a lot this year though. He seems determined to want to claw for that 8 seed.

    It's safe to say that the FA portion of this off-season was botched.

    On the other hand, the Spurs aced the draft which is way more important.

    His constant dnp is troubling. Not even a spot minute, foul trouble, a look at something different.

    Pop loves to play vets, so this is baffling.

    He is either washed up or got on Pop's bad side.
    I can't see any other explanation.

    He's not washed. I watched his games from last year and he was a decent role player, not someone who can't get a single minute

    Didn't he play a regular season game where he hit 4 3s? Maybe his style of dress shows pop hes not over himself but that'd be dang superficial. I mean they're not even showcasing him for trade bait.

    Ehhhh… they would have aced it with a better pick at 19. I was against Samanic before the draft, and I still think it was a mistake. What would Thybulle have been worth in that game last night, when they just needed to hold a lead? Or Brandon Clarke for that matter. I was all for Keldon, and Spoon was one of the dark horse picks I wanted the Spurs to take, so I can't argue that part.

    Personally, I don't think it makes any difference whether Carroll is washed or not. Signing a guy who can't get ANY minutes is a serious screwup. (Jackie Butler comes to mind.) If Carroll isn't shot, it's a FO screwup. And if he's still capable of contributing, it's a Pop screwup.

    If anybody has seen the 30 for 30 Last Days of Bobby Knight...

    Some striking parallels between the two.

    I'm not saying he is choking dudes, bringing bullwhips to practice, or throwing chairs.

    Its the absolute POWER he has over the Program and how he is using it in his later years. The Media relationship in and around Indiana is very analogous.

    Why is nobody asking Pop about Carroll?

    If something like that happened in European soccer or basketball (in any league), the media would ask coaches and management multiple questions about this kind of acquisition?
    But nodody’s asking Pop. That’s just weird. This way we would at least have an official version.

    Pop is the Emperors New Clothes right now.

    Everyone is just "too stupid" to see what he's wearing and won't call him out for walking around naked.
