I didn't see it as making fun. Just being sarcastic. I could be wrong.
These threads were all significantly different and yet they are merged?
I guess I fail to see how talking about players who you'd trade for Danny Granger and his merits as to whether he could be an Olympian are the same. Or his video game ratings for that matter.
"I had to take her down like Chris Brown."
No doubt Bender was the man in Live...
I seen somewhere that out of the top 5 scorers in a NBA season that only one player hasn't made the all-star game for that season in NBA history, if thats true Granger's chances are high being #4 in scoring. Someone correct me if i'm wrong, I think thats what I seen on t.v.
Now this thread is confusing as hell! Thanks for merging them all together!!!
Doesn't make much sense to merge all this together. One thread was about a NBA console game, one about the Olympics, one about Danny be talked about in a specific article. There all about Danny no doubt, but they ARE different.
Maybe all the threads in the section should be merged together into one big mega thread, after all they are all about the Pacers.
"Just look at the flowers ........ BANG"
Why wasn't Reggie Miller's thoughts on the All-Star game merged as well?
"I had to take her down like Chris Brown."
It's sort of humorous having these threads merged actually.
It seems alot of posters have been just like a bunch a squawking chickens
lately, so might as well add to the confusion so they have even more to
Granger is THE MAN nevertheless.
Why were these threads merged? I don't understand that at all. Particularly the Granger+Olympics thread which IMO was generating some interesting conversation on its own and now it is just jumbled in here. He is on the Pacers correct? and this is a Pacers forum correct? How does who would you trade Danny Granger for have anything to do with should he make the Olympic team? Just kills what could be some provocative conversation by jumbling it all up into one thread.
Ok, I'm gonna end my rant after this, but this just seems like totally ridiculous thing to do. Couldn't you have just locked the Granger being considered for vacant senate seat thread? Why did you have to kill off a few other threads that were generating interesting conversation? I mean I just DO NOT get this. Just seems like if some are far too inconvenienced to read more than one thread about Danny when most of them clearly have a different specific intent. I know that video game ratings are inconsequential, but how does the All-Star game, the Olympics, the MIP award, and who you would trade Danny for have anything to do with one another? Might as well just condense the board down to 17 or 18 topics if this is the way you want to do it.
One for each player (15), one for game threads, one for Pacer trade rumors, and one for general NBA news. Boom no one has to read more than one thread.
I'm probably gonna get in trouble for this, and I really don't mean to start anything, but I 100% do not see the rationalization behind merging some of this threads together.
"If history is any indication, though, Granger doesn’t need to worry.Since 1985-86, just three players who were in the top five in scoring at the All-Star break were not selected to play in the game, according to the Elias Sports Bureau." -Mike Wells, Indy Star
I guess I was wrong, but Granger still has a pretty good chance of making the all-star game, I hope.
This thread is one big cluster f*#@ lol.
Don't really play video games, cool he's ranked so high though.
Granger should be an Olympian if he keeps this up. His rebounding is likely to improve a little more. I really think he has the potential to be a great assist man, especially with some of the passes I've seen him come off with. He would be a pretty solid asset.
Already covered the trade thing
P.S. This is now relevant to the thread but has nothing to do with Danny.

http://www.hoopsworld.com/Story.asp?story_id=11397#1 (1) Danny Granger - Indiana Pacers (19-28) - 25.6 points, 5.0 rebounds, 3.4 assists, 1.4 blocks and 1.1 steals.
Granger continues to demonstrate just how good he has become on both ends of the floor. So often offensive numbers are what drive a list like this one; however, some of the greatest strides Granger has taken this season are on the defensive end of the floor and aren't necessarily evident by looking at the few defensive stats that are tabulated such as steals and blocks. Granger is a complete player and the Eastern Conference coaches took note by electing him to his first NBA All-Star Game earlier this week. The fact he is now playing through a knee injury is just further testament to the type of player Granger has become.
I threw this in this thread because it's someone giving Danny some love rather than actual news, right? Anyway, it was pretty cool to come across it. I guess this is hoopsworld's current pick for MIP.
Um, why would you megathread the only thing worth talking about this season? Dumb.
You, Never? Did the Kenosha Kid?
*removed* Just keep politics and religion completely out of it, please.
