Former Utah Jazz power forward, Antoine Carr, picks LeBron James as his favorite player to watch.
Dang, the Utah Jazz can’t even get any love from their own this offseason. Former Utah Jazz power forward, Antoine Carr recently was asked about who his favorite big man in the NBA is, and his answer was not someone from the Jazz. Nope, while speaking to the Scoop B Selects program on YouTube, hosted by Bally Sports Insider Brandon Robinson, Carr revealed that his favorite player to watch is LeBron James.
Carr did seemingly answer the big question, however, naming Nikola Jokic as well, while also showing some love for Luka Doncic, but not one Utah Jazz player was named.
"Well… probably my main man would be LeBron and then I’m going to have to go with a little bit of [Luka] Doncic and of course the big man from Denver, [Nikola] Jokic — the Joker — but he’s NO joke."
Carr is a good-natured man, however, and his interview highlights his charming personality. A personality some Jazz fans may remember from their title-contending days. From 1994 to 1998, Carr was one of the primary bench guys for the Jazz, playing in 306 games across his four seasons, and only missing a few games here or there due to injury.
During his time with the Jazz, he helped the team get to the NBA Finals twice, something covered in the above interview as well. And while he didn’t hold back his thoughts on the Chicago Bulls, it was his comments on former teammate John Stockton that stood out as well.
Speaking to Brandon Robinson, Stockton remains one of, if not the toughest players the Jazz had, maybe of all time. Carr specifically touches on his grit and ability to run through screens that bigs of the era would set, and apparently, Stockton was unbothered.
