M.L. Carr started his famed professional basketball career after graduating from Guilford College in 1973, where he was named All American and led his team to the NAIA Championship. Upon graduating, he was drafted by both the Kentucky Colonels from the American Basketball Association and the Kansas City Kings from the National Basketball Association.

In 1975, Carr played for the Spirits of St. Louis in the ABA and was named to the ABA's All-Rookie team. When the ABA and NBA merged, he joined the NBA by playing for the Detroit Pistons from 1976-79, where he was selected to the All-Defense second team during the 1979 season, after leading the league in steals.
After being regarded as one of the top sought-after free agents in 1979, Carr signed with the Boston Celtics, where he played from 1979-85.

Carr later became Director of Basketball Operations for the Celtics in 1994. The following year, he joined Red Auerbach as the only other Celtic to hold dual titles as Director of Basketball Operations and Head Coach during the 1994-95 and 1996-97 seasons. After the 1997 season, he became the Celtics' Director of Corporate Development. In 2004, Carr became a minority owner of the new NBA expansion franchise, the Charlotte Bobcats.
