Lakers Forward Derrick Caracter’s Rookie Grade: D-

I can understand Caracter’s rookie struggles on the court. His off-the-court issues are a different story. This report card is actually courtesy of the LA Times and blogger Mark Medina. You can read Medina’s blog here. I will be interested to see if Caracter begins next season as a member of the Lakers. He still has the talent to play in the NBA, but has plenty of things to improve before his role increases. You still have to wonder how much he might have helped his pro career had he chosen to stay at UTEP and play his senior season for Coach Floyd.
