    Default You think Mike Brown will even play Danny?

    There has been some clear tensions between Danny and Lebron this year. And I think that with the last game, Mike Brown probably doesn't have that nice of a view of our all star. You think Mike Brown will give him scrub minutes after what happened at the end of the last game or because James is talking in his ear?

    I doubt his issue is with Danny. It's with the refs. You can't blame players for the calls refs give, or don't.

    That would be ridiculous of him to do that. I'm sure Mike Brown is proud of Granger and is happy for him. - Pacers deserved it anyway.

    I hope Danny gets to rest his knee as much as possible.

    It is delightful that Danny has been recognized as an All Star.

    The game itself means nothing.

    No chance. Come on - you must really have a low opinion of Mike Brown

    Didn't he coach the kid for two years, or am I mistaken?

    No. Mike is a professional, besides Mike doesn't have much to complain about others when you look at the too many steps and fouls Lebron gets away with. I think he was just pissed in the heat of the moment, very understandable.

    Brown was in Cleveland long before Danny was drafted.
    Why do the things that we treasure most, slip away in time
    Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
    Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?
    Till we fall away in our own darkness, a stranger to our own hearts
    And life itself, rushing over me
    Life itself, the wind in black elms,
    Life itself in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you

    It was a few months, maybe. He was here the brawl year, and Danny was drafted that June. In fact, Mike might have still been an assistant during the draft; I don't remember when he was hired for the Cavs job that summer.

    Well, strictly speaking, he was hired by Cleveland about 3-4 weeks before Danny was drafted, but, yeah, he never coached Danny.

    I think the better question is -- would LeBron attempt to keep Danny off a future Olympics team?

    Do you really think the Cavs care that much about a team that struggles to win with consistency? Do they sit around and worry about what our team will do against them in the Eastern Conference Finals? Would Lebron really put his competitive nature aside for a petty vendetta, that may not even exist?

    Oh please people, I really, really doubt Lebron is losing any sleep over Granger. God, you all probably are out in your backyards trying to signal the mothership or figure out how we faked the moon landing.

    Of course he will play Danny. Remember these guys are all professionals and it's not like they are gonna want to stick it to Danny because they lost a game on a questionable call. They are a fraternity of NBA players and coaches. Most of those guys realize they are in it together for the good of their sport and the minor bickering and squabbling is just stupdi day to day stuff.

    Not if he's smart. Good players recognize good players, and the Olympics are bigger than any little NBA disagreement. LeBron, assuming he carries enough weight to influence the roster (he probably does), would be more likely to try to get Granger on the squad because he understands Danny's talents firsthand.

    As for Mike Brown, same goes. He'll give him good minutes because he's a professional. I still like Brown and would prefer him to who we have.

    It was David Stern who forced them to fake the landing, that rat b*****d.

    I predict that Mike Brown will play Granger -- better than scrub minutes too.

    Danny was part of the moon missions?

    No, because I think that while on the court it's contentious (and go back and look at my post-game comments about there being a rivalry after the 2nd meeting even) what we see happening is their dynamic going from annoying little wanna-be to a guy that demands respect.

    It's a lot like Jordan-Reggie to me. Reggie used to be a guy that Mike dismissed as below his level and just another trash-talking punk. But Reggie was able to keep shaking the Bulls up, pushing them and having his own big moments. Think of the face scratch by Mike and then think of their dynamic by the time Reggie shoved off of him for that huge game winner.

    James is already starting to see that perhaps there is more to Danny than he first realized, and as that grows I think his desire to have Danny on his side will also grow. I mean James has been rivals with Wade and Kobe but there is no way he doesn't love when he gets to play with them instead of against them.

    For Danny it's overcoming the respect level, not the game-fueled animosity.



    * didn't mean to make it sound like I was the only person who noted that DG had gotten under LJ's skin way back when. Several of us discussed the yapping at the FT line late in that 2nd game and some of the other dynamics. I think the PD party came after that game and that we discussed it there too. This last game just puts another log on a fire that was already started.

    Jordan was smart and he kept Thomas off the Dream Team. And I think LeBron is way more immature than Jordan could ever be.

    I do think there is some similarities to the early years of Jordan/Reggie except that Reggie was much more of a punk than Granger could ever be.

    Just saw on nba.tv that Coach Brown was fined $25,000 for comments about officials after loss to Pacers.
