No..........Head is out, Watson is out. So AJ, TJ and T.....D (i was looking another J) are the only pg's so TJ plays simply because we're thin at pg. Don't worry next week when Earl is back TJ is gone.

Brandon Rush is becoming my favorite Pacer. He actually tries to get rebounds, is a great defender, and is finally playing with confidence.

EDIT: Look at that. Stuckey just sees Rush, freaks out, and loses the ball out of bounds. Skills.

No he doesn't.

He needs to shoot himself out of it..and stop thinking about the slump he's in.

Danny should keep shooting threes, just not as many of them. His foot injury must be playing a part of it.

Brandon Rush has the skills to be better than Granger. I don't think he has the mindset though, actually I'm almost positive he doesn't.

This now makes eight straight double-figure scoring games for Rush, and 10 of the past 12, while shooting .583 from the field and .510 from downtown.

02-05-2010, 09:47 PM
I know it's a small sample, but judging by tonight's play, I think T.J. Ford could make a decent starter one day - a serviceable back-up at worst.

Pistons/Pacers games are always sources for great hyperbole. John Kuester - worst coach ever? Ben Gordon - worst signing ever? Tayshaun Prince - most overpaid in the NBA? The list goes on and on.

Tj has been playing pretty good this game..

I still don't understand why there are sooo many that hate TJ and want him gone...... YET in all honesty , truth be told...he really hasn't been any worse than every other Pacer this season.. including Danny .. I don't hear shouts for Danny or Rush's head on a trade platter..


If I were an NBA player, I sure as heck wouldn't want to come to the Pacers with the way the fans are in their fickleness.. (lol is that even a word?) Worrying day to day if the fans will turn on them..

It's no wonder Rush has played scared most of the season.. lol He probably reads P.D.

Well let's see, Danny, Murphy , Rush , Dun have ALL had some MAJOR stinkers MULTIPLE games this season .. And I meant played, not as in "skill" .. cause yes he really hasn't "played" any worse than most of our other players throughout the season... I stick with my opinion.....

Now Granted there were injuries.. But still this team as a whole has really laid some crap all season... I just think that TJ has gotten the sh:censored: end of the stick.. all things considered..

Given the info we have , I don't think he deserved being treated like he has been and delegated to a permanent bench warmer.. And I actually feel bad for him..

Me personally , I want us to trade him, because I believe that AJ is one of our pg's of the future, maybe not our starter.. but still an important piece.. TJ, not so much so .. Same with Murphy ... I think BOTH would fit better in a different setting, and we need a more prototypical banger pf..

I still like both guys, just not necessarily as our future

I like how nobody guessed that Tyler guy in the poll. I know very little about Pistons history, but I figured the one guy who I didn't know would probably be the guy - just because of the mechanics of trivia questions.

Really does make you appreciate where the Pacers are, and where they're headed in the next couple of years. Even though our record is nearly the same as Detroit's, these are two teams heading in different directions. The Pacers really played well together tonight and that hopefully bodes well for the core of this team going forward, with Granger, Hibbert and Rush now looking like they belong together. Perhaps we can start to say that this team has more parts in place now than are still lacking...

One thing's for sure, I'm enjoying watching them more now than I did a month or two ago. In other words:
