    Chris Paul will go down as one of the greatest PG's ever when all is said and done.

    Who was the last PG to average 20/10? Timmy Hardaway in the early 90's? Paul is averaging 21/11 right now.

    Celtics are blessed with some very quick and long defenders and then they have Garnett who IMO is one of the all time great defenders ever to play in the NBA.

    We have Foster, we have Granger.... that is it - (as much as I love Jeff) both could play defense for the Celts - but they wouldn't stand out - although Jeff would fit nicely in their schemes

    Yes credit Tom Thib, credit Doc, credit the individual defenders - but the key is the commitment, trust and all out effort by the players to play together - it is beautiful to watch.

    When the JO/KG comparisons were being made (that seems like a long time ago), weren't some people trying to say that JO is a better defender than KG? That's absurd. Sure, he's good on the weak-side in terms of blocking a shot or two...but no. Not a better defender.

    we were also going to trade JO to Boston for the #1 pick last year.

    a lot of silly things are said on here.

    All season long I've heard people say the Celtics have had an easy schedule, just wait until they play the tough western conference teams on the road.

    OK, the go in and beat the Rockets, Mavs and Spurs - in one week.

    Very impressive

    Yeah. I'm not sure why, but most people don't like to accept the fact that the best team is almost always the one that has the best players on it.

    Wizards have beat the Pistons in 6 of the last 9.

    I feel confident we can make it to at least the second round this year.

    Stephen Jackson makes love to pressure. Kobe couldn't hang.

    It seems safe to say that Jack is officially a star - Nelly (the sh*tty rapper) and Jack Nicholson both gave him props during and immediately following the game.

    And don't look now, but Baron Davis is now the #3 option on the Warriors, Monta has definitely leaped over him (and Monta's probably passed Jack as well).

    Yeah. I'm terrified.

    Greg Oden knows how to pack his bags. Maybe he can teach Larry Bird a couple things...

    Does anyone else think Oden looks like he might be a little chubby?

    The George Foreman. Greatest invention alive.

    That's hilarious.
    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!

    Not sure why, but billups is the anti-Nash.

    We're 6-1 against the suns with billups starting, since nash signed there 4 season ago. Billups has eaten Nash alive every time.

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    Bulls starting to pull away. They may win and save us from being down by 2 games.

    Always look at the loss column when comparing teams. Whatever the difference there is what's important. As is, we are 2 behind Atlanta in the loss column, and if they don't lose it doesn't matter what we do.

    The good thing is we play them once, the bad thing is we only play them once. Worse, we could lose to them.

    From our point of view we need another team to help us. From Atlanta's point of view they are in charge of their own destiny. Meaning if they keep winning it doesn't matter what the teams behind them do.
