    We all know Larry isn't trading him.
    ...and if he doesn't he's pulling a Durant. I warned about Granger prior to him falling apart. Unfortunately, as talented as Paul is...it is time. The Pacers need to figure out when it's time to cut bait.

    Worst reply ever
    I see what you did there....
    That was absolutely the best, most fantastic, reply ever!
    Nuntius was right for a while. I was wrong for a while. But ultimately I was right and Frank Vogel has been let go.

    Larry has a knack for signing guys right as they are no longer good.
    He makes it seem like it's a steal because of the value of the contract.

    Then whenever they have a nice game or two, the average fan says "man that was great value", when in reality we are overpaying for a has been or a not quite.

    He struck gold for a few years with D. West. But he's struck out with guys like Brooks, Al and Monta(though at least he's had more than his share of games where he's contributed).

    You can almost throw Stuckey in there for the simple fact that he caught the injury bug once he arrived in Indy(hadn't missed more than 11 games to injury prior to becoming a Pacer)

    Agree with all of that apart from the end. Stuckey was the best value contract in the league the first year he was here. Not so much after.

    Change is neither good or bad, it simply is.

    Agreed. I forgot he was on a minimum contract that first year. That's so crazy to think about.

    His injuries have kept him from consistently being that guy for us ever since. Which is unfortunate

    Niang would be a good situational player. Nate just has no clue how to use him.
    Unless Niang increases his quickness by a factor of 2 I see no way he can ever be much of a contributor. Plus he is short and short armed.
