One thing that is particularly frightening in Danny missing up to 30 games is that an 8-22 record over that stretch this might be one more straw on the camel's back towards the person wearing the shoes realizing that these shoes are just too thin and full of holes to ever be worn again in the cold, Indianapolis winter.
But in a different, warm climate like Las Vegas, they might still be terrible shoes, but they can be at least be worn and a lot of people who otherwise would be barefoot would be more than happy to wear these shoes.
I'm just worried that the head shoe salesman is going to get a free pass, just because of a temporary shortage of his best shoe.
........Even though he does a poor job of organizing the selling of any of his other shoes to begin with.
Do you guys remember this other thread?
I'm just wondering how long it takes until we hear something like "Pacers coach Jim O'Brien plans to ignore Danny Granger's minute restriction if the team is in a close game."
You guys are stupid! :p
Hey, if a player wears combat boots during game time does that mean he came to kick *** or does he wants to enlist in the Army?
When they said he was having heel problems, I wondered a bit if it wasn't fascia related. A primary necessity is rest, even when it isn't severe. Hate to say "we told you so", but...
On pacers.com it has us starting Brandon at SF and Dahntay at SG.
I'd reverse that or just start Mike at SF and Dahntay at SG and bring Brandon off the bench.
I know this isn't always accurate so I'm expecting to see Brandon at SG and Dahntay at SF.
Possibly a few weeks later, if we're really struggling, then I wouldn't be surprised to see Mike start at SF and Dahntay at SG.
If Mike plays like he did in the '07-08 season this season, he's got a good shot at winning the NBA's Sixth Man of the Year award. Just felt like adding that in.
Shouldn't Mike's ration of minutes be over soon?
I just don't think we should put him back in the starting lineup too soon. Maybe after week or so. He's only been back a few weeks now and I think putting the starting SF pressure and "Danny's replacement" on him is not a good idea right now.
I'd say give it a week at least if we're really struggling with Brandon in the starting lineup.
It's a good thing we have four second-best players.
To those "fire O'Brien" people with Granger out with an injury, it just gave O'Brien a security blanket to finish out the season as coach. I really expected it anyway. Next year is a totally different story.
I'll be PO'ed when we get #13 in the summer. If we lost that game to Milwaukee we might have Brandon Jennings right now. This is a lost season, like last, and we deserve a decent pick.
Well I let the news settle. I am not surprised this happened.
Danny has been dinged up all year and he played when many thought he should sit.
Plus you see the Pacers just got back the majority of their injured players. And so someone had to be injured. It is the price we pay for being the Pacers.
It is do or die for Brandon though. Either he excels or he is buried behind Head and Watson.
How many of you still want Granger to play in the World thing ??
