HoopsHype Marcus Landry rumors

October 2, 2010 Updates

Carl noticed Marcus' confidence growing in the offseason. He's confident Marcus will help a team this season. "If he's not here, I know he'll be somewhere because he's playing great basketball," Carl said. "Even if he goes to the D-League or if somebody else picks him up, he's going to be a great bonus to somebody's ballclub." Carl can relate to Marcus working against the odds by recalling that there were 19 guaranteed contracts in Houston when he was a second round pick in 2007. Landry still made the team. "Ever since I've been little, I've been trying to do everything better than (Carl)," Marcus said. "He's at a level now (that) I'm trying to get to and be better than that. He's just been a great example to me. There's no other person I can look up to right now but him. He's never been in trouble. He doesn't have a bad reputation at all. So just to follow in someone's footsteps, he's a great person's to follow in." Sacramento Bee
