    Damn, Danny's arms are actually pretty big. I think his frame could easily take about 10 or so more pounds added to it, too.
    You, Never? Did the Kenosha Kid?

    Well it's not fair that you put a picture of Tayshaun from Kentucky, he's probably put on a little muscle since then. But either way, Danny's huge!

    Think about it, we're comparing Prince from Kentucky to Granger from New Mexico. It's not as if one of the pictures is after one of them had been a pro for a few years.

    [QUOTE=Kraft][list][*]Are you satisfied with Jeff Foster or Dale Davis as this team's starting center?

    Yes. Just think how good Foster will be when he starts hitting his outside shots. He was a good shooter at one time, he can do it again.


    [*]Barring the addition of a shooter that'll play significantly in the rotation, are you happy with the perimeter shooting abilities of this team?

    No, we need more outside shooting. Sarunas, if we sign him will help. Granger will too.


    [*]Is Anthony Johnson the appropriate backup for Jamaal Tinsley?

    AJ is a good back up, but I wouldn't mind signing Sarunas.


    [*]Do you feel it is really necessary to re-sign James Jones for more than a minimum wage deal now that Danny Granger is here? If yes, how much is loyalty playing into your answer?

    More than the minimum? He's not worth that, Granger or no Granger.


    [*]Percentage chance Austin Croshere gets dropped like a bad habit?

    It all depends on whether the Pacers think they will lose money. With the cliff provision they could be all right. If they think they will be all right there's no chance they waive him. You have to remember too that they will most likely have to pay another player if they waive him. They will figure everything in and then if he will still cost millions they will waive him. However if it's a matter of a million or two they will probably keep him.

    Yes and Yes

    Yes. Here are the 3pt fg%'s for 04-05:
    Season Playoffs
    SJ .360 .317
    FJ .380 .391
    JJ .398 .400
    AJ .380 .348
    JT .372 .very bad
    RA .412 .N/A
    RM .322 .318
    They are decent shooters but they should take less 3's.
    Is Anthony Johnson the appropriate backup for Jamaal Tinsley?
    Not sure.

    Necessary but preferable
    Percentage chance Austin Croshere gets dropped like a bad habit?
    10%

    1) Im comfortable with both of them. Niether is great but when you combine them two with Scott Pollard and David Harrison we have just as many big bodies as anybody in the Leauge.

    2) Perimeter shooting is the teams biggest weakness. I've said right before the playoffs began that this team lacks balance on the offensive end. Its top three scorers are all guys who like to muscle there way in the post and and score within 15ft. We'll be successful against most teams in the league but I don't believe against Detroit or San Antonio we have the offensive balance to beat them.

    3)AJ really is a nice player. Problem is he's not a starter. Hes a 15-20 minute player, with Tinlsey injurie problems and the fact that its hard for him to play 30minutes a game because he'll wear down over the course of the season means we need somebody whos a better backup pg. We also need to have sombody whos better then Eddie Gill as well.

    4)James Jones is very overated. If were healthy he won't play much this season. Granger can do everything he does but better. I would not overpay to keep him.

    5)70% chance hes out of here by October
