    As soon as I see him do that to Ben Wallace I'll be impressed.

    I was telling Jermaniac during the draft that we should take our chances with this kid. High risk, high reward.

    Hasn't LB learned anything from Jonathan Bender? Guys who can jump really cool are the key to winning championships!!!!

    I saw that video yesterday, I'm not sure what the big deal is. I'll be more impressed if I could see him take a defender off the dribble and pull up and consistently hit a mid-range jumper.

    Uh, it's a dunk. Who cares really? It says nothing about his game
    Don't ask Marvin Harrison what he did during the bye week. "Batman never told where the Bat Cave is," he explained.

    Have you seen any footage of him play? He's pretty amazing. At least from what I've seen.

    So were excited about a guy who through a dunk down on what appears to be John Edwards' little brother?

    I love it the first time this kid trys to go baseline on a good defender and its denied to him so he ends up either getting the charge, stepping out of bounds, or is forced to throw a turnover.

    Perhaps I've been poisoned by Bender, but I'm so much happier to get a proven talent than another potential.

    Only a little, and I'm sure he's good. But I'm not going to drool over someone we didnt get. I'm happy with Granger (he looks as though he will be solid).

    If we picked him, we would just be renting him anyways. By the time he becomes a "all-star", his contract would be up and would go to a team such as LA, etc.

    Green will be a more potent offensive player than Granger, probably. But overall, Granger is far more valueable. With Granger, we have a solid defender, solid shooter, and someone that really has no weakness. He's just a great overall player.

    Green doesn't strike me as a defensive type. He's already shown he has a huge ego, refusing to work out for some teams. He'll probably take some time to develope. And even if he is a high risk, high reward, he won't help us NOW. I wanna win NOW, damnit, I'm tired of waiting.

    First thing that came to my mind -- Bender, and I'll rather take my chances on a guy with experience and that has been matched up against college guys then a bunch of high school kids.

    Now that Shaun Bradley is out of the league, I don't know of any other centre that would let him do that.

    I also don't know of any team defense (well, maybe the Raptors) that is as bad as that. He had all the room in the world, and schooled his defender out on the wing with a simple spin. Let's see if that spin move will work on a guy like Ronnie, or Bruce.

    It's high school kids...big, BIG change from the guys he is going to face in this league.

    I'd rather see someone who isn't afraid to attack the rim and finish strong.

    I'll take substance over fluff any day.

    I am very happy with the Pacer choice of a solid ,well round , college tested Danny Granger . Gerald Green may be "potential a super star" or he may be Darius Miles.

    There are all kinds of flashy dunkers in the nba , I want complete basketball players.

    Old time Pacer fans remember Terrance Stansbury , great dunker was in NBA slam dunk contest a couple time but never developed the rest of his game. Harold Minor was the "next MJ".

    Gerald Green , some day may be a better player than Danny Granger. But I'll stick with what appears to be a sure thing over - What could be.

    Appears to be a sure thing? C'mon. All draft picks are a gamble.

    Danny Granger > Gerald Green, As soon as the season starts Danny will be ready to back up Ron. It would have taken Gerald Green at least 2 years to make a real impact.

    And wow because of a nice dunk we should have picked him. Then next year we should pick James White in the first round if thats the way it goes.
