Thread: Danny G getting some love (The Granger merged thread)

  1. #76

    Default Re: Who would you trade Danny for?

    Seeing how the Pacers are far from being a playoff caliber team, I wouldn't trade for anyone older than him. So using that criteria, I would go after one of the following:

    Lebron James
    Chris Paul
    Dwight Howard
    Brandon Roy
    Josh Smith
    Andrew Bynum
    Deron Williams
    Chris Bosh
    Al Jefferson

    What people don't realize is that Danny isn't even that young for this league--his current age of 25 yrs makes him only one year younger than the average NBA player. Sure, he's having a break out season, but almost every 2/3 reaches a similar offensive peak at that age! Michael Jordan, Reggie Miller, Paul Pierce, Tracy McGrady, and Joe Johnson are a few examples. Just look at the numbers and you'll see that a lot of these guys have career scoring years at that age. I'm not knocking Danny, I just think his future value may be a little inflated based on how he is performing now, and while he will be a star player for many years to come he probably won't top this season. That's why I would ONLY trade him for a younger player who hasn't reached his zenith yet.

    What I want to know is when did Danny average 17.6 ppg?

    He would have been a lock last time were it not for the injury. I think it's safe to say unless he pulls out again he'll be a lock. Primarily because there aren't many other worth bigs.
    Do you really need another one if you have Howard/Bosh/insert defensive minded big man here? What does Amare bring you besides scoring? Absolutely nothing. This team has plenty of scoring. It's not like Amare is going to stretch the defense or out rebound Bosh or Howard or lock down Yao. He serves no purpose on this team. Sweet he can dunk. So can every other player on that team, and they actually do other things too.

    comparing the olympics to the nba all-star game is ridiculous. There is no meanignful comparison on any scale.
    Co-signed. And I think every single person involved with the 2008 Olympics team would probably take offense to that statement.

    Is it equivalent to military service? No, but I don't think I saw anyone say that either. (Until Count brought it up. Sorry Count I'm usually right with you on most things, but I don't see where you are going here.)

    Is it a great source of national pride? I believe so, and I think a lot of people would agree with me.

    As much as I'd love Granger to get the award, I think Harris will come away with it.
    Harris has faded lately, I don't think he'll win it.

    Don't ask Marvin Harrison what he did during the bye week. "Batman never told where the Bat Cave is," he explained.

    Default Danny Granger mention on PTI

    They were talking about Kobe's three year 81 point game anniversary and how they didn't think anyone on the current top 10 scorer's in the NBA could get 80.

    However, they did mention that Granger could "get 60 to 65 maybe".

    And if Danny doesn't want to play in the Olympic's? What will everyone think of him then? Not every player does you know.

    For all we know Danny might say, "I made an agreement with my wife-to-be that summer is her time." Most would think that an absurd reason, but everyone doesn't see eye to eye on the importance of the Olympic's. European's for example think the World Championships are more important.

    It would make sense if you played the game regularly. For years 2k's online roster updates have been pathetic. This year they implemented a new system that updates the rosters of every team regularly (guessing weekly). Granger began this season as an 88 and has climbed to a 93 overall rating this season. Unfortunatly Dunleavy is still a 79 (horribly innaccurate. They also rotate the lineups to make a reasonably accurate depiction of who will be on the court.

    I'd love to see 60+ from Danny some day, but it is highly unlikely.

    I will say though that the way he's really wratcheted up his scoring this season, I'm
    strangely reminded of how another small forward from the 80's blossomed into one of
    the league's most prolific scorers - Bernard King. We may be seeing something
    similar here.

    Roy, it is an idea who's time has come. I was wondering whether Granger

    1. should be inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame this year
    2. ought to be on the Catholic church's short list for sainthood.


    Now me, I'm just a casual fan, so I'm content to watch him play basketball for the Pacers.
    And I won't be here to see the day
    It all dries up and blows away
    I'd hang around just to see

    I believed you, however I didn't think it was the Pacers Danny Granger. I thought his dad was being considered for a seat in Louisiana, but that didn't make sense because he lives in Indiana now. After that I had the thread open.

    And yes there are a lot of Granger threads, but each is a different topic so I don't mind.

    Even this one as silly as it is, is way better reading that post game threads after a loss.

    He wasn't even that high to begin with - He started out as 85 - The guy's basically my go-to guy in the game. He hardly ever misses mid-ranged shots. It's actually gotten a little bit ridiculous because his slashing and dunking ability in the game is way too high.

    Kinda like how bender was the best dunker/shot blocker on the old NBA Live. Ridiculous but I'm dominated with him.

    I have only been registered a half a year longer than you. Also I read everyone of them. I just thought to clear up page one and allow other topics front page would be nice.

    As someone that read them all I think merging five of them them was a mistake. Granger was the only common denominator, they were different subjects and going in different directions, now it's a mishmash I don't care to read.
