Quite exciting actually. One of the computers blew and lots of little names were flung off the screen, onto the floor, where they were seen scurrying toward freedom.

Carr had installed himself as head coach in order to sink the team to where it could land the top pick in the draft, one Mr. Tim Duncan (hey, nobody said it worked out). In other words, Carr was trying to tank the season.
