Harrison Barnes is an impressive young rookie, but last night he got the Manti Te’o treatment from Vince Carter. Carter was in the corner acting like he was injured.
The Mavs were playing for the last shot as Barnes was guarding Carter on the wing. Carter started to check and reach for his ankle several times.
Barnes checked and looked at Carter several times before deciding Vince must be injured and therefore not guard worthy. Barnes started to float off to double team.
Carter then out of the blue, cut to the rim, and delivered a forceful two-handed dunk. Barnes will learn to play till the whistle blows or your man goes off the court.
