When Michael Carter-Williams accepted the 2013-14 NBA Rookie of the Year award at PCOM a week ago, the Sixers point guard spoke about his hunger to one day lead Philadelphia to the postseason. MCW said the Sixers coaching staff encouraged him to watch and learn from these ongoing playoffs. The former Syracuse guard has taken to Twitter to share some of his analysis of this epic postseason.
In Game 3 of the Thunder-Clippers series, Kevin Durant went off for 16 points on 5-7 shooting in the first quarter. But OKC went away from him in the second.
Great first quarter by KD thought he should've took more than 1 shot in the second quarter. He's way to good for that— Michael Carter-Willi (@MCW1) May 8, 2014
Gotta feed the hot hand. If Sam Hinkie is successful at surrounding MCW and Nerlens Noel with premium talent this upcoming draft, MCW will be responsible for setting up a guy like Wiggins or Parker before he gets his own.
The ROY was locked in while watching Game 3 of Pacers-Wizards, tweeting he was in "commentator mode."
Tough shot. Paul needs to be aggressive throughout the whole game— Michael Carter-Willi (@MCW1) May 10, 2014
During the Pacers' slump over the past few months, Roy Hibbert drew the brunt of the team's criticism. But Paul George regressed significantly from his MVP-caliber start to this season, settling for 18-footers instead of putting his head down and driving to the paint.
Washington on the glass heavy. J wall and Ariza picking up the intensity for the wiz kids— Michael Carter-Willi (@MCW1) May 10, 2014
The Wizards have been successful these playoffs when they've dominated the offensive glass. MCW watched Russell Westbrook and the Thunder do the same. With his 6-6 frame, Carter-Williams could be just as effective attacking the offensive glass as Westbrook and Wall are, completely adding another level to Brett Brown's scheme.
Man, I can't wait till these kids are in the playoffs.
