    Default Let's talk about Shawne Williams

    I'll admit, I thought he was a stupid pick in the draft. Not because I didn't think he could be a good player, but because we already had a long 3 / pseudo-4 who could hit the occasional jumper. But this kid impresses me.

    Does anybody look at this guy and see a player 10 games into his sophomore season? He looks much smoother, much more polished, and much more aware than that. Now, his beautiful shot doesn't hurt him any, but overall he just looks solid. Whose quote is it... Birds? "Looks like a basketball player out there?"
    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.

    Ok, so he botched the clutch free throw at the end. But still a good game by Shawne.

    Star in the making. Dude has serious game. Not too many weaknesses at all. He shot a couple of "tired leg" three's and free-throws tonight, but Kobe did that too early in his career.

    not to mention only spending 1 year in college. danny went 4 years in college, whereas Williams would only be a junior this year at Memphis.

    I love the kid. He has a very high B-Ball IQ. He has no real glaring weaknesses, except FT's maybe, he just needs to continue to get better at everything and I think he will.

    He was born in 1986, that blows me away, I have underwear that's nearly that old.

    I don't think he could do that against a lot of teams. Denver's frontcourt was pretty depleted tonight.

    I really think this could be our strongest lineup.... I just hope JO wouldn't whine about playing center... It seems like JOB has lost some confidence in Troy recently. He has had some good scoring games, but I can see coach has put his money where his mouth is when it comes to the importance of defense.

    My favorite moment of the season: Shawne Williams hands me his autograph and I say, "I look forward to seeing you starting in the near future." to which he replies with a grin, "Thanks."

    Cut to: Two days later. Denver. Who starts next to Jeff?

    I own one jersey right now (Granger). I'm seriously considering getting a second one soon.

    I think Shawne might have a wirey strength. The man doesn't back down from contact and will scrap in the post. Besides, he'd be starting in place of Murphy. That can't actually be bad.

    Agreed. Plus it's a different NBA now. We could get away with it against most teams, but we should be smart and play it right against the teams with more than one big man.

    Wow, I hadn't considered that. I've thought of him as too short and weak to play the 4 full-time, but compared to Murphy...

    I'd be all for starting him on a trial basis. We'd have to make a trade though if it works out.

    Some people can just flat out play basketball in any style. Shawne Williams is one of those people.

    Shawne had a lot of tough rebounds today against some efficient rebounders in Camby and Najera. I also love when they play Williams in the post. It's almost like a work of art watching him catch the ball down there and finish. Let him be the starting 4, I wouldn't be mad at that.

    Then again I guess we're forgetting that Ike will be back shortly. That will throw our wishes off a bit.

    Hell, if Al Harrington can start next to JO, I don't see why Shawne can't.

    So....What can we get for a JO/Granger package then?

    Build around Shawne/Ike/MDJ/Quis/New PG. Why not?

    Don't trade Granger. If he works on his dribbles he'll be gold.
