Dahntay,

Could you please find your game that you seemed to have had only two short years ago. Right now, you are basically stealing money from the Pacers.

he never gets off the bench. i would say you would be closer to right if he were actually playing however, he has played like once or twice this season.

If the system didnt require chucking 3s he would play over Dunleavy he is a good driver and finisher

Open Letter From Dahntay Jones,

I'd gladly play lights out if the coach would ever put me in the game. I kind of thought playing was why Larry Bird brought me here in the first place. Makes you kind of wonder who's running things around here doesn't it?

Sincerely,
a poor schelp on the bench

Open Letter from the real Dahntay Jones,

Concerned fans, followers, country men and women, I address you today with the sad news that the reason that I am resigned to the bench is not due to some blind decision making from admittedly a terrible coach, no unfortunately, I am stuck on the bench due to the complete and utter lack of passing ability in my body. Unfortunately, I was born with a horrible, debilitating disease which makes me incapable of passing the ball to anyone/anything but the opposing team or the hoop once I have stepped within 17 feet of the basketball.

I apologize for this burden, but this deformity is a heavy cross to bear. I hope I have all of your support.

Sincerely,

Dahntay "If I'm within 17 feet, I'm barrelin' towards the hole" Jones

Dahntey Jones was brought here for his defense, not his offense. And I agree with Trader Joe. Dahntey's too turnover prone and he's a lowsy jump shooter. I'd rather have Quis back than retain Dahntey.

We're stuck with him for at least another season unless someone wants him.

Signing him to a multi year deal really wasn't worth it.

I was happy we signed him, but 3 years and an option was too much.

I think we should have an official open letter thread so nobody makes any more open letter threads, is been actually fun to read them.

The thing is for being a supposed defensive stopper against smaller guards, why didn't we see him against the likes of Monta Ellis? I feel like he could have a real useful niche on this team as a defender against these type of players, but whatever.

PR07,

I think there's a reason Dahntey didn't see playing time that day...

Answer: James Posey, veteran and 3-pt specialist (or more accurate with it than Dahntey at least)

Note: I hated that Posey got so much playing time that game. It was the wrong move for JOB to make.

Sorry...

Didn't mean to be the cataylist for open letter stupidity. But if it makes you feel better, myself and Speed were being sincere in our commentary. Can't speak for all the rest.

Dahntay,

While you are not going to start anywhere and will not play much as a Pacer, you are a solid NBA player. We all know why you're on the bench...and it's the same reason Lester Connor is no longer with the team. You talked back to Jim. At least we respect you...

-----------------------------------

BTW, Dahntay is the type of player who COULD help if the coach understood how to use him and didn't snuff out people with a backbone. He's not a starter but more of a specialist as PRO7 implies with the Monte Ellis reference. He would probably be the best matchup for Monte, but Jim would prefer to let Monte score 30+ and lose the game.

Same thing with Blake Griffin.

Jim plants Josh, the only athlete on the team capable of slowing down Griffin, and proceeds to help Blake score his career high. That's right, Blake scored his career high due to Jim's utter incompetence as an NBA "coach".

These examples are where Jim is clearly one of the worst coaches in the NBA. That and the Posey versus Amare', Priz and Josh Smith matchups.

It's amazing the man still has a job.
