He is a beast. I can't wait to watch him and Hulk in the front court in a couple years.

That's great. I love watching Danny get better every week. It's nice to see him starting to get some more attention.

Funny how some of the Saras fans preach basketball being a team sport, yet all they care about is Saras getting minutes, then are happy when we lose because Saras didn't play. Get over it and grow up.

Chris Paul will most likely win ROY, but I think Danny should at least be the runner-up.

Look, WE GET IT. You wish Sarunas was good enough to be in the rotation. QUIT WHINING. It's not going to change anything. It's just going to annoy the rest of the board.

SarunasJ3, if you want to talk about Sarunas Jasikevicius, then just go to The Official Sarunas Jasikevicius thread. You can talk about Sarunas all you want in that thread. Just dont do it here.

I really didn't believe you guys on how good Danny was till I watched him him vs. Magic. Individually, Paul and Danny should be Co-ROY, but team-wise, Paul has led his team to a much better season that last season, so maybe he deserves to win.

To me Danny is number three this year on talent. I think CP3 and Bogut are better plus they play the two difficult positions. CP3 being a true PG and Bogut being a true C. I think Charlie V. deserves more ROY votes than Granger but Toronto made a mistake not picking Danny. If Danny was getting Charlie V.'s minutes he would be posting the kind of numbers he's been posting the last week all season. Danny is more talented than him. Felton I think isn't as talented but he plays well at a difficult position so kudos on that. Excellent pick by the Bobcats.

The PF is a more complex position in today's game, than center is.

It's usually the complementary position for a SG/SF or it's the franchise's position for teams. Few teams throughout the league have stiffs playing PF, and a lot more have stiffs playing center.

No, he spammed several times before this and got multiple warnings.

Danny is starting to show what he can do at the pro level. He's starting to show that he can be a consistent scorer. It's an interesting dilemma with Peja on the team because Granger's best position is going to be small forward and that is what Peja plays. I like Granger better, but I'm extremely biased. However, I like what Peja brings as well. I'm just not sure there is a situation where either player is going to be at their best when both Granger and Peja are on the floor together.

As a lobo fan looking back on the draft, I'm glad that Danny fell to the pacers at #17. The Pacers are a class organization and the fanbase is very knowledgeable. You guys recognized what Granger brought to the game even before he became a reliable scorer. A lot of fans of other teams would have dismissed him as a bust because he's not an explosive scorer (yet?). Props to you Pacer fans. This lobo fan salutes you.
