    Default Memo to Al: Lose weight, rebound more

    This is carried over from Unclebuck's post in the random thoughts thread, but I thought it was a relevant issue while he was here.

    Memo to Al: Lose weight, rebound more

    From Janny Hu of the Sporting Green/Chronicle staff.


    Warriors coach Don Nelson wants Al Harrington to drop about 10 to 15 pounds, so he's having the forward run before and after practices to get in shape. Harrington admitted to being gassed after his first game in Nelson's run-run-run system.

    "It's totally different," he said of being in Nellie-shape. "I woke up the next morning and I left like I was in a fight. Everything hurt."


    No word on if he'll be suspended for failing to meet body fat standards. (But bonus points to you for getting that reference).

    Some concern is also popping up about Harrington's rebounding, or lack thereof. He's never been great on the boards, especially on the defense end, where his career average is a lean 4.0 rpg. He had only rebound against the Lakers on Monday and four against the Nets on Wednesday, and three of those came of the offensive glass.
    Though Nelson and Harrington have had "a little chat" about the low rebounding numbers, it's safe to say that Harrington won't be getting the Matt Barnes treatment and find himself benched for a day.
    Not now. Not ever.

    Funny how we thought that Harrington would be a solid rebounding and defensive Player when he came to Indy . Now, he and Antoine "the doughboy" Walker share something in common :rofl:

    This is David West, he is the Honey Badger, West just doesn't give a *****....he's pretty bad *ss cuz he has no regard for any other Player or Team whatsoever.

    Don Nelson's great, Carlisle wouldn't ever dare tell Harrington to do something like that. Carlisle is a cream puff.

    Interesting. Could be just what Al needs.
    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!

    Antoine Walker is the only NBA player who could every get away with doing the "shimmy". No one else could touch that move (and for good reason). And I must say, his ability to miss lay-ups is virtually unmatched by anyone in the league, including our boy Jeff Foster.

    If Al turns into a fairly good rebounder I will be pissed because he could have done that here.
