ASU's Jahii Carson salutes himself
The point guard is averaging 17.9 points and 5.3 assists per game for the upstart Sun Devils, and needless to say he's in conversation when folks discuss the country's best freshmen.
Carson, though, believes he's not just good for a freshman. He thinks he's good -- even the best -- period.
I Dnt think there is a PG in the PAC better then me . Just me . I think I've played the best so far and it's my first year playin . Salute— Jahii Carson(@Jahii_carson1) December 26, 2012
Poor grammar aside (and we'll forgive Mr. Carson because it is Twitter), one has to wonder why he would salute himself. Isn't that for others to do? His claim of being the best in the conference is a bold statement that, to be honest, is not really that ridiculous.
Carson is scoring more and dishing the ball better than Arizona's Mark Lyons, and UCLA's Larry Drew II is only really good for passing the rock.
Carson's tweet predictably spurned many responses -- some of which were not exactly positive -- which led to a couple more tweets from the youngster.
The ones tht love me secretly hate me. The ones tht hate me secretly love me. Trust none 💯💯💯— Jahii Carson(@Jahii_carson1) December 26, 2012

Our advice for Carson is to keep playing well, which will shut all the "haters" up and make his fans very, very happy.
