I think he was the final piece and they don't do it without him. I also think that team was amazingly lucky; they made it to the playoffs on a razors edge. One key player misses one or two games and they possibly don't even make it in; trading for Carter doesn't help them if Doughty misses two games and they lose because of it, for instance. I'm not trying to paint Carter as a savior here; I'm just pointing out it wasn't as simple as changing the coach...one more move was needed, and this team doesn't really have the luxury to make such moves.
Down in the basement, I've got a Craftsman lathe. Show it to the children when they misbehave.
