Magic guard Vince Carter left the team's loss to the Wizards on Friday night with a shoulder injury.
He sprained his left shoulder during a collision in the second quarter and did not return.
"I'll talk to you guys tomorrow," Carter said after the game, declining to comment.
Orlando will host Atlanta on Saturday night.
Carter is averaging 17.4 points and 3.1 assists per game this season.
It should come as no surprise that as his shooting numbers have fallen off the map and he's mired in an embarrassing slump, that his team is faultering and looking like a steaming sack of crap, that WINCE CARTER took a bump and didn't return to the game last night. A return to form by ole Vincent Lamar Carter, wouldn't ya say?
Magic fans... welcome to the ****ing Wince Carter show.
Enjoy being rope-a-doped by our generations biggest disappointment.
Conspiracy theorist? Potentially.
But why speak about conspiracies when it is no longer a conspiracy. The writing has been on the wall for years--- Donaghy let the cat out of the bag.
Watching the NBA can sometimes be downright painful. You can't for a second tell me that games aren't manipulated by refs. There are countless games that we can all recall where the refs have burried a team and cost them games. This is not from the perspective of a fanboy of their team, this is the perspective of someone who watches alot of games of teams he doesn't give two ****'s about, and see's them get anally raped by biased, agenda driven refs night in and night out.
The Raps I feel ALWAYS fall victim to this. Every game that we get a sizeable lead we begin to get phantom 3 second defense calls, offensive 3 second in the key calls, carries, offensive fouls, etc. They happen at such a rate that are almost frightening. Sometimes... YES... the team stops playing hard,... but more often than not it is blatent horse****. The flow of the game is lost, the turnovers lead to multiple buckets, and a 15 point lead quickly evaporates in a matter of minutes. This ALWAYS happens to small market teams. ALWAYS. This isn't from a lack of talent and the other team all of a sudden 'stepping it up', so cram that argument up your cramhole if that is what you are thinking.
Last night was a PERFECT example of this. Toronto was absolutely man-handling Orlando through 3 quarters, then MIRACULOUSLY, the game was a nail biter. Anyone watching the game smelled the bull**** through the tv screen. Bargs had a whopping total of ONE ful going into the fourt. In a span of mere minutes he was up to 5 after hitting back to back three's and had to be removed from the game. The calls were TERRIBLE. Every replay showed that they were phantom calls. His defense on Dwight had been great all game, and with him out, Orlando was able to attack the rim as well as grab crucial offensive rebounds. The amount of fouls called on Toronto in the 4th quarter KILLED us... and nearly cost us the game. Orlando managed to go until the 2 minute mark without a foul called against them. Absolutely unreal.
I'm sorry if I'm coming across as a whiny fan, but the officiating that took place was downright degrading and a slap in the face of any fan with half a brain.
