    Default I'll give credit where credit is due...

    Was anybody else really impressed with the improvement Nazr Mohammad has made since he joined the Knicks? His low post game is really progressing.

    He really looked good last night.

    Then I looked over to the Knicks' bench and I understood why. He's got the same coach that worked wonders with Jermaine's and Al's development. Yes, I'm referring to...



















    Mark Aguirre.

    I wish we could have kept him when Isiah was fired, he truly deserves credit for JO's and Al's development over the past three seasons.
    Why do the things that we treasure most, slip away in time
    Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
    Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?
    Till we fall away in our own darkness, a stranger to our own hearts
    And life itself, rushing over me
    Life itself, the wind in black elms,
    Life itself in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you

    Nazr is coming along well. I think he just needed out of Atlanta. Theo is playing better in Portland as well. I am sure Aguire has a lot to do with it as well but I think a lot of it is just getting out of that pit.

    Even some of Nazr's specific post moves were reminiscent of JO circa 2001-2002. That's more than just coincidence/ happiness to be out of Atlanta, although that fact may have improved his willingness to be coachable.

    Good point he was very impressive last night. He is clearly not the player they got from Atlanta. I imagine he will work out well for them in the long run.

    Nazr was developing well in Philly under Larry Brown before he got traded to Atlanta....I think along with Ratliffe.... It seems he didn't maintain the developmental curve in Atlanta for whatever reason.

    Mark Aguirre is sorely missed.... I've mentioned something like that before..... Personally I think JO and AL's post games have stagnated somewhat since his departure.... they both really only go to a couple different moves anymore...its quite sad...because you could really see them developing their post games last year.

    Hm - I thought I was going to get some props for the quality of my posts!

    Yeah, Mark was a great big-man coach.... similar to the results Chuck Person has been getting with out guards.

    If only we could have kept them both.
    Welcome to Pacers Digest! New around here? Here are three tips for making the forum a great place to talk about Pacers basketball.

    • Log in. Even if you want to read instead of post, it's helpful because it lets you:
    • Change your signature options. You can hide all signatures by choosing "Settings" (top right) then "General Settings" (middle left) and unchecking the box "Show Signatures" (in the "Thread Display Options" area).
    • Create an ignore list. I know it may seem unneighborly. But you're here to talk about the Pacers, not argue with someone who's just looking for an argument. Most of the regular users on here make use (at least occasionally) of the "Ignore" feature. Just go to "Settings" -> "Edit Ignore List" and add the names.

    Enjoy your time at PD!
