View Full Version : AJ deserves some props

He has been crushed on here , sometimes with me leading the charge. There were times he deserved our frustration and at times maybe a little over the top, but...... Its time to give him his well deserved props for his play over the past 5 games.

This is not to demean A.J. Price or Lance Stephenson, the two players whose roles increased while Hill was out. Price, in particular, represented himself well. It took a couple of games to shake off the rust from the end of the bench, but Price has come around nicely, averaging 9.8 points, 2.6 assists and .485 shooting in the last five games

If he wouldn't be such a black hole, he wouldn't be bashed so much. If he took from Dahntay a bit this year, he should learn to pass a few times.

I don't get why it always has to be Lance vs. AJ. The only regular minutes Lance is getting is at shooting guard, which AJ doesn't even play. It doesn't matter wether or not Lance can play point guard or not because at least this season he isn't being used there except when we need size and strength. If you want to advocate for AJ price he needs to earn minutes from George Hill or DC. If Stephenson wants more minutes he needs to get them from DJ or GH. Taking PG minutes away from GH, is a different issue than Lance getting minutes at the 2.

I am tired of AJ supporters attacking Lance Stephenson's 5-10 minutes a game, simply because he is easier than trying to say their guy is better than George HIll. If AJ goes back to the bench it has nothing to do with Lance Stephenson. The only times Lance has really had increased minutes is when Danny was injured and when PG was in foul trouble.
I expect when GH comes back, Lance will keep his 5-10 minutes a game.

I would just appreciate the AJ Price fan club would debate AJ vs. GH, instead of picking on the youngest player on the team. AJ and Lance's playing time really have nothing to do with each other at the moment.

Seems like a nice guy, good teammate, likable.

My few complaints in the Bobcats game involved AJ. X's and O's guys please weigh in..

He was loosing his man on screens - I do not know what the trick is but he needs to work on it. The defensive breakdowns come from the opposing point guard.

TOO much dribbling. Leading to last second desperation shots. This may be because he dribbles too much or that the other guys are not moving enough. I will go 50/50 - even then not a compliment.

Generally I agree with you, but here they're linked because they're both getting some of George Hill's time while he's out.

I love Juice. I think he's played very well lately. I don't really think I agree with the "black hole" label, though. When he's in with guys who can score (D-West, Roy) He usually looks to get the ball into them.

The problem is when he isn't he takes way too long to make a decision, resulting in dribbling the shot clock away. He then takes a shot to avoid the 24 second violation. That's what I mean by black hole.

That's not true, before Hill got hurt Lance was primarily playing the pg, with Hill at sg and Price getting Pendergraph type minutes

AJ's usually pretty good with that, but he was losing his guy last night, uncharacteristically. It might have been because it was Kemba, and Kemba's pretty darn fast. But he was just slow on defense regardless. (which has been uncharacteristic for the season) It might have also been a huge lead, and so he wasn't as energized defensively..who knows. It's certainly not a pattern with AJ though, so nothing to complain too much about, unless it becomes one. Although I agree, I didn't think he defended too well last game, and he's shown he can defend Kemba quite well just from the previous Charlotte game.

Most of the time, he passes the ball as soon as he gets it up court. But sometimes he'll dribble. He's doing this because he's waiting for our post player (Hans) to get in good position, and a lot of times (because teams know what we are doing, I'd assume) Tyler doesn't get it. Which gives us a lot less time for a shot. It's something he's always done, and I don't really have an issue with it, (because better a good entry pass than a bad one) but if you haven't watched him play enough, you might not realize that's what he's doing. (As over dribbling tends to be considered a bad habit.)

I do think part of the problem is when he finds something that's working, he'll repeatedly go back to it. So the first time it's decently easy for Tyler to post up. Around the sixth time team's have caught on. :P Then again, the bench unit isn't exactly the most offensively potent group without Hill.

Lance vs. AJ..because I think Hill is a SG, and I think he should be playing SG. I've really got no problem with Lance playing a few minutes of development time, if Larry insists, I just think we need to have a point guard in the game at all times.

He does have a little Travis Best in him, likes to dribble the ball :D

I've thought AJ has been solid. Doesn't turn it over like crazy, confident shooter (Finally making them now too, haha). Seems like a nice dude too.

A lot of the backup 2 guard minutes have been given to Dahantay Jones. Lance did get extra minutes occasionally, but not a lot other than when PG was in foul trouble and the game where Danny was injured. For example; against New Jersey Lance played less than 5 minutes.

Ireally think AJ can offer more than DC if their jump shot is off. When DC is not scoring he cant really offer much else. I think AJ can still run the offense and pay a little better d

GH and Lance did share the ball alot more than we see now, however Vogals "lance will get most his minutes at the 2"(not a direct quote) statement came prior to GH being injured. Lance did play PG in the game that George Hill was injured, but that was due specifically to matchup issues(DWill+Marrow). Lance was subbing for Paul George, in the games immediately prior to GH's injury.

I do think it is hard to distinguish who is the actual point guard when LS and GH play together, however I don't view that as a negative.

At the same token, is it not a coincidence that now he's finally gotten some regular playing time, he has been able to develop a rhythm? I mean, was it NOT obvious that in those first few games after Hill's injury that he was rusty and had not adjusted to the speed of the game, since he had been rotting on the end of the bench all season?

He's played well, it went a bit unnoticed because we lost four of the past six games.

Our bench backcourt could be really good. In the few games we've seen them, Hill and AJ played really well together. And if Lance came in and added five to ten minutes of his energy, it could be a lot of fun. But at the end of the day, AJ does make our bench better, and the coaching staff should consider letting him keep his minutes.

I judge George Hill primarily on his time as a Pacer, and therefore don't really have a problem with people debating GH v. AJ price as point guards(I would largely stay out of this debate). Personally, I believe he needs to play point guard to justify trading for him. While I would vote for GH over AJ, I am perfectly comfortable with you preferring AJ.

I also think Matchup's involving GH at SG are a completely different discussion.

But I don't understand that thought process.

Without Hill, we only have Lance as a backup SG. I guess we could play Dahntay there, but Vogel tends to prefer that he's used as a backup SF. Whereas, without Hill, we've got AJ and (although, I don't agree with this either) Lance.

We also had a second year player, who has a knack for getting into foul trouble, at the SG spot.

The Hill trade was justified the second we traded Rush and let Dunleavy walk.

Sure, defensively, he may struggle more so against an SG. But he struggles on offense as a PG. And I'd take good offense and good defense over bad offense and great defense. (I mean heck, look at how well AJ defended two oversize SG's against NJ) When Hill and AJ were together, sure it was only a few games, but those two were like a buzz saw on defense together.

Now, personally, if AJ was traded tomorrow, I'd still say I don't think Lance is ready to be a regular rotation minute guy. But I understand that Larry wants Lance to get some time, and I think you can do that, while still having the main backcourt off the bench being AJ and Hill. In fact, it might help keep everyone fresher as a lot of games are being played.

I wouldn't mind seeing Lance steal some of Dahntay's minutes when Hill gets back. Lance is strong enough to match up against certain sfs. An AJ/Hill/Lance combo at the 1-3 could make for some good ball movement.

Aj never had to defend Dwill, except on switches. We also needed DG playing great to win that game over a crappy team

Aj did a good job keeping marrow from getting post position, which DC and GH have both struggled doing.

Man, who cares about numbers? All myself, the OP, and a few others are trying to imply is that he has been playing well lately, that he's improved greatly over those first few games he took over for GH where he looked absolutely lost and couldn't throw a rock into the ocean.

I don't think either of us are implying that he's played better than Hill (Nor am i implying that you're implying that.....you follow me?), but that he's simply fulfilling his role on the team at a pretty good level the last few games. He's hitting shots, making some good passes, and giving a good effort on the defensive side of the ball.

For being a 3rd String Point Guard, he's done pretty damn well lately.

In fact, it might help keep everyone fresher as a lot of games are being played.

My opinion of the trade is directly tied to what happens the rest of the season and this summer, however smart teams don't give 7 million dollar contracts to undersized shooting guards. We didn't trade away a pick and bring him here to be an undersized shooting guard.

DJ has been playing shooting guard whenever he is on the floor with Danny. A lot of George Hills minutes have gone to him. Danny and PG have also both been playing a lot of minutes. I could push for Lance to take Jones minutes, but the coach needs to be willing to give PG DJ's minutes at SF first.

I have almost started the Dahantay Jones thread on several occasions, but the guy was actually making shots for a while so I held back. DJ has had a few craptastic games recently so it may be soon. Wether I or someone else starts it I expect the Dahantay Jones thread to be epic:-)(not really but there are alot of sides). I am trying to keep this loosely connected to AJ via George Hills minutes, so I really shouldn't talk about DJ anymore.

For the sake of not highjacking the thread I will also let you slide on the Larry Bird micromanagement assumption(here's to a semi friendly interaction).:shakehand

No really, my point is that even as a Tyler fan I could see that he has been garbage all year, if I was blindsided by my Tyler glasses I'll be finding every single piece of stats to make him look good, like on the last fives games were his shooting percentage is over .400 I could say that "the old Tyler is back" or that "he is just getting better" but the true is that I got to watch the games and must of those points and rebounds came againts crappy teams and in blowouts just like AJ's numbers.

my original comments came from Lances name being in the quote. I believe making the augment Lance v price makes it difficult to discuss either. Unless we are talking specifically about the point guard position there is no need for it.

my original comments came from Lances name being in the quote. I believe making the augment Lance v price makes it difficult to discuss either. Unless we are talking specifically about the point guard position there is no need for it.


Mate, 90'sNBArocked didn't even mentioned Lance. He was not trying to make a Lance vs AJ argument. The only reason Lance was even in the OP was because NBA.com's article mentioned Lance in the same sentence as Price and he did not want to cut it out.

This thread's goal was for people to give some props to AJ for his good job as of late. No one intended to make it a Lance vs AJ thread.

For those intentions he could have left the article out of the post. The article was about George Hills minutes. Furthermore, I never bashed AJ once in this thread.

Of course, I go there. One of the reasons I want them to lose is to read all the overreactions. PSD forums are priceless as well. When the Heat had a 3 game losing skid earlier in this season one of their game threads went over 100 pages long :D

Oh, the good times..

What cracks me up is Dsychata (sp?) is the only one on PD who shows up regularly. He was battling those pricks on the Bulls RealGm board for dolo!!

They are the biggest freakin whinners period. if they lose its the refs, schedule loss, blah blah blah

Then they come to Nap and try to act tough, knowing they live in the burbs, and have to deal with Chitowns, ****** unemplyment, high taxes, polution, traffic, and safety concerns

Nap rocks

He used the article to highlight the part in bold ( AJ's numbers). Altering the writer's sentence by leaving Stephenson out would be wrong IMO.

Also, I never said you bashed AJ. I don't even understand why you mention it here :p

Yeah they seem pretty full of themselves on their message boards. I read where they think Paul's ceiling is Deng. :laugh: They don't have much respect for out team that's why I want them again in playoffs.

CAN'T WAIT!

Yeah, I see Daschysta frequenting those boards as well. He also congratulates their teams if they play good against and makes spot on comments most of the time. All in all, he is a nice Pacers representative on those boards :)

Personally, I only stalk RealGM and PSD.

On an irrelevant note, Deng is a heck of a player. Have you seen him play with his national team?

I dont post on RealGm , mainly because the Pacers board is sooooooooooooooo weak (not they dont have good peeps there but they will have 1 page of about 6-7 replies on a game thread, to put it into perspective the Bulls will have like 53-60 pages!

PS Your right he doesnt act like a dik, he represents us well

Both the RealGM and PSD boards of the Pacers are quite weak. I feel bad for the peeps that frequent those boards without frequenting PD. That said, I'm sure that most of the people who frequent those boards, frequent PD as well.
