How MCW's one game changes everything

One game. Check that -- one quarter. That's how long it took for Michael Carter-Williams to show that he not only belonged in the NBA, but that he could dominate as a rookie point guard.

How good was the 6-foot-6 Carter-Williams on Wednesday night? As crazy as it sounds, he may never be able to duplicate what he did in his NBA debut -- 22 points, 12 assists, 7 rebounds, 9 steals, 4 3-pointers and maybe the most stunning part of all, only 1 turnover. Let that sink in for a second.

It's got to be almost like a dream for the Philadelphia 76ers that on a night Allen Iverson made his retirement official, another star point guard might have been born.
