    Default Congrats to the 2008 Indiana Pacers newcomer of the year- Travis Diener

    Figured I'd start it off today, and do 2 polls a week.

    Have at it, folks.

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

    Conference Champions 1955, 1956, 1988, 2005
    NBA Champions 1989, 1990, 2004

    Diener. He did a respectable job as starting PG in the crappy circumstances. I think he'll be a solid backup for awhile.

    How about graham. I guess he played the least minutes but had better showings than owens anyway...

    Diener gets my vote either way.

    In the immediate I could have gone with Flip, but I chose the slightly broader approach and went with Diener. Our best backup PG since Anthony Johnson. Kudos to Larry Bird for getting him.

    I kinda forgot he was a new guy, my bad. I can add him if enough people want to vote for him.

    Has to be Diener.

    Kareem and Flip have been solid but to me Diener had the toughest job. He was the unknown on the team being asked to start at the toughest spot in the lineup, point guard. We had no good backup for him until we signed Flip and now start him.

    I'm pretty happy though with what all of those three have given us. But to me Diener is the newcomer of the year.

    Wow, Diener is cleaning up. I didn't think his nicknames were that good.

    agreed with mal that flip has had more immediate impact, but diener is the only one who is likely to be here long term.

    i have had bad things to say about diener after his horrible start but he has really turned his game around. he's a great backup pg.

    i would have considered graham too except that his minutes were really too low to make an impact.

    Kareem Rush had his moments, but without Diener this team grinds to a virtual standstill.

    Now now, I thought Larry's regime didn't start until two weeks ago? Wasn't that what everyone said? New start and all.

    As for the poll, where's Stanko? It'd just be some crappy foreign restaurant without Stanko!

    Deiner played the most by default, thus the votes.
    Rush, IMO, was key during streatches t/y, & proved he belongs in the NBA. I feel we under-utralized him. When he played consistant minutes, he was very good. Had Dunleavy not unexpectedly become a stud, I have no doubts Rush would have gotten the PT, & would be now getting the same kinda love that Deiner is getting here now. That's whi I vote Rush.

    I'm sorry my name is Travi and I'm pretty much a big deal. You never heard of me? That sounds absurd to me. The way I stole your attention was flat out burglary.

    Maybe we shouldn't have gotten rid of Anthony Johnson. Maybe we shouldn't have gotten rid of James Jones.
