    Default .403 Yikes!!!

    Just noticed that Peja is shooting .403 from the field this season, which is lower than ALL current Pacers not named Eddie Gill. Fortunately a lot of those attempts are 3s, but still .403 is pretty low. His 3-pt pct is .397, which would make his 2-point pct around .410 ..... not very good. Hopefully Larry Bird can inspire him to shoot better.

    I'm not to worried about that.

    JO will make Peja better and get him better shots, pure and simple.

    Peja was playing with a bunch of loose parts that didn't fit together in Sacramento.

    Or maybe it's because in Sacto his coach is forcing that team to play euro ball with players that aren't suited for that style, resulting in disjointed plays and chaotic rotations. Here, he's going to get a lot of open looks, and some layups courtesy of Jamaal and Sarunas.

    I'm not ecstatic, but I am excited.

    Don't take things from this season.

    This will be a WHOLE different situation for Peja.

    peja might be the anti reggie in the clutch but that shooting percentage will get better when jermaine opens **** up for him.

    I agree that he should make the defense spread out a little more, but I am completely unimpressed with JO's ability or willingness to pass out of the post. That is going to have to improve.

    I think he had been improving in that area, but everyone he passes to always misses, so I imagine that's discouraging. Peja may or may not help in that department.

    .461 for his career. I think he'll be a lot closer to that here.
