Here goes that popular rumor, and it is just a rumor, that keeps getting perpetuated that Carimi was never healthy enough to workout fully last offseason and get back the agility that an entire offseason of scar tissue and rest will rob you of. I don't necessarily doubt it, and I do have a problem fathoming that Carimi kickslide and strafe skills were THAT diminished by a kneecap injury -- so a rush in rehab and limited workouts makes a bit of sense. If he bounces back and revamps his kickslide, awesome, if not, I think some people need to get over his height and admit we have a tall power guard on our hands because the boy is the true road grader in the ground game that we simply don't have otherwise.
Is Carimi in this point in time in that Marc Colombo mode ? Always there but never starting ? We shall see.
