Welcome to the NBA Michael Carter-Williams

With the 11th pick in the 2013 NBA Draft, the Philadelphia 76ers selected Michael Carter-Williams, PG Syracuse University and he did not disappoint in his debut last night against the Miami Heat.  Imagine being thrown into the fire against the reigning champions and LeBron James to start your career and nearly QUADRUPLE-double!  MCW put up 22 points, dished out 12 assists, had 9 steals and grabbed 7 rebounds, all while turning the ball over just once and committing one foul.  Best part is, he shot 6 of 10 from the floor including 4 of 6 3pt attempts!  He also got to the charity stripe,with 8 free throw attempts and knocked down 6.  Welcome to the NBA young fella, keep it up, but remember, you are supposed to lead your team to Andrew Wiggins!
