    Default Another Reason Why Danny is Untradeable

    Granger breaks ground in Indonesia

    Sep 2, 2008

    He didn't know them, but that was OK, because they didn't know all that much about him, either.

    As the first NBA player to conduct an event in Indonesia, Danny Granger instantly became one of the southeast Asian nation's biggest celebrities.

    The Pacers forward spent three days last week as a basketball ambassador to Indonesia, the world's fourth-most populous country (behind China, India and the U.S.). He represented the league in a basketball clinic at the new DetEksi Basketball League (DBL) Arena in Surabaya, working with the top 50 young Indonesian players. He also participated in two events in Jakarta, giving a clinic for 30 youths from an orphanage at the American embassy in Jakarta and participating in a 3-on-3 tournament

    Granger's visit received massive media coverage. The Jawa Pos, one of the country's biggest newspapers, put the story on the front page and named one version the "Danny Granger Edition."

    "It's really great to meet young Indonesian players," the 25-year-old Granger told The Jakarta Post before one of his sessions. "I think the (clinic) will be memorable for them, meeting an NBA player in person. Hopefully, today's experience can encourage them in playing better basketball in the future."

    He told Antara News he hoped his visit would "inspire the youngsters."

    Some of them weren't familiar with him before the clinics but they quickly became fans.

    “All I know he’s an NBA player," said one 12-year-old player to Tempo Interactive.

    Should he return in 2009 for the first Indonesia Development Camp hosted by the NBA, odds are Granger will be a much more familiar face.

    A refreshing change from hearing about club incidents and the like, indeed.

    CORRECTION:

    Tinsley is untradable.

    Granger is untouchable.

    I do love me some Danny Granger, although I feel he is WAY overvalued by Pacer fans. That being said I do not believe he is untradeable or untouchable.

    In all fairness though their aren't many people who don't overvalue their franchises best player. As far as I'm concerned though if you could package him for a solid player and a 1-7 pick he is as good as gone.

    Does anyone know why Granger was specifically chosen to break ground in Indonesia?

    At Granger's 2.3 mil salary, what solid player do you think the Pacers are going to get for Granger?

    Within the next 3 months, more than likely, Granger will be making around 10 mil/year.

    Like I said in my original post, I love me some Granger. I was just saying he isn't untouchable. No player in the league is untouchable for the right price. Unless of course you are implying DG will be gone in 3 years. In that case disregard this post...Although I am betting he will be here.

    Do you suppose Granger volunteered? Or TPTB encouraged him or volunteered him? Maybe TPTB sent him over there to soften him up before negotiating his contract extension.

    In any case, it is a good and admirable thing to do.

    Wow - guess it has been a while since I've brushed up on geography...used
    to think Indonesia was just some little island off SE Asia.

    If Indonesia is the 4th most populated country in the world, they must really
    have those islanders stacked up on top of each other! ()

    Well the NBA picked a great ambassador for their program.

    Sometimes I feel like Danny is a piece of plywood floating in a storm at sea, the way Pacer fans cling to him so desperately.

    He's a good player, but I will never understand how someone on a losing team can be untouchable.

    Well, have you ever touched him, Kegboy?

    All I meant to say was that I really don't see any situation in which he can/will be traded in the next couple of years. When a team performs as poorly as we do, we need something to hold to.

    Kegboy I think the reason why Danny is untradeable (untouchable) is because of the change of direction the organization is making. The kid may not be the most talented poster child of their team, but for the direction that we are going he fits.

    Danny is a walking PR. He was drafted into this "hostile" environment, yet he did not succumb to it's gravitational force. People say he is not a leader. He may not be the typical leader, but he has the character to lead. He needs to work on influencing others (particularly Rush). He was not influenced by the negative influences of the past and he maintained his composure and disposition.

    Danny Granger is untouchable because this team needs him as much off the court as they do on the court.

    Nobody's untouchable. (OK, maybe LeBron and Duncan.) Danny, however, probably falls into the Bill Simmon's category, "Just Know, He's worth more to us than he is to you."

    The question isn't whether or not we would trade Danny at all, but whether we could make a deal that we would consider "worth our while" without the other team considering it gouging.

    I'd bet many of the same things people are saying about Danny would have been said about Reggie when he first joined the team. I'm not sure why Danny is treated so skeptically.

    They were, Reggie wasn't a popular guy around here early in his career. The way I see it though is that if you compare their numbers 3 seasons in, they are both fairly similar...except.....Reggie gives you a few more of them intangibles that DG doesn't show us. Thats not to say Danny doesn't have some intangibles or that he won't develop into a leader, because he does and he might. Im just saying...
