Morgantown, West Virginia – Former West Virginia Mountaineers guard Jevon Carter didn’t play one minute last night in the Phoenix Suns’ 104-103 win over the Los Angeles Clippers in Game 2 of the NBA western conference finals, but that didn’t stop him from being the very last player to leave the court.
Carter, who has only played 18 total minutes in the playoffs so far, chooses to “stay ready so that he doesn’t have to get ready.”
While the rest of his teammates celebrated their big win, Carter remained on the court, getting up shots long after the game.

Carter was seen on national television shooting jumpers behind teammate Cameron Payne as he did an interview with ESPN.

While most people likely didn’t notice it, this is exactly why West Virginia loves Jevon Carter. He’s the hardest working man in the NBA and one day, he will get his shot…and you better believe he’ll be ready!
