According to Knicks guard Stephon Marbury, who guarded Toronto Raptors star Vince Carter on Saturday night, the Raptors look like a team who have already moved on from their superstar.
Marc Berman of the New York Times reports that Marbury was suprised with how the Raptors under utilized Carter's talents, from running Carter off screens to free him up to utilizing his height by posting up the smaller Marbury when Carter was his defensive assignment.
"They don't run any plays for him," Marbury said. "He doesn't get the ball at all. You could tell he's not the focal of the team anymore. I don't understand it, but hey, he doesn't have to be the focal when he plays against us."
"I don't think the offense is geared for him," Marbury said. " I'm just speaking of just guarding him. When you're guarding him, you expect to be running off a lot of screens, having a lot of isolations, For him to be posting me up. There wasn't any of that."
Carter is expected to be traded from the Raptors after requesting to be moved.
