Thread: If Danny and Dunleavy Jr. were captains...?

    Default If Danny and Dunleavy Jr. were captains...?

    I know this is going to be a very odd hypothetical but I thought it might lead to some good conversation. If they were on a playground and Granger and Dunleavy were captains and had to select current Pacers on their team who do you think they would pick first, second, third....?

    I think the first pick would be Hibbert or Murph followed by guards. What do you all think?

    Murphy would probably be first, then Jack or Ford...maybe even Rush
    "So, which one of you guys is going to come in second?" - Larry Bird before the 3 point contest. He won.

    Granger picks first and takes Rush

    Dunleavy takes Jack

    Granger takes Ford

    Dunleavy takes Murphy

    Granger takes Hibbert

    Dunleavy takes Foster

    Granger takes McBob

    Dunleavy takes Diener


    and that's 10.

    Ford, Rush, Granger, McBob, Hibbert

    Diener, Jack, Dunleavy, Murphy, Foster.

    I like Danny's team.

    Why does Danny get to pick first?
    The best exercise of the human heart is reaching down and picking someone else up.

    Is this supposed to be who they'd prefer to play with? Or whose style would translate best to the playground?

    A little bit of both really. They would want to win the game so who would they pick to give them the best chance of winning.

    Well in that case, Tinsley, because he's a playground legend.

    In terms of actual Pacers, I'd probably say Ford though. He seems to have the speed, handles, and flare that would translate well to the playground. I think McRoberts would be taken early too with his handling and passing skill-set for a big.

    I would love to see the Gold Team of:

    Dunleavy, Hibbert, Murphy, Graham and Ford vs.

    Navy Team of:

    Granger, Foster, McRoberts, Jack and Daniels

    _____________________________________________

    Jack vs. Ford----I give Ford the edge on the playground mainly due to his overall speed and quickness

    Gold 1, Navy 0

    Graham vs. Daniels----I actually think Graham may handle Daniels on the playground with his athleticism since Daniels likes to post up and shoot that 7ft turn around shot. I think on the playground I would have to side with Graham on this one.

    Gold 2, Navy 0

    McRoberts vs. Murphy----Again I think McRoberts may give Murphy fits with his hops and slashing offense. Murphy will have problems finding his open jumper over McRob due to his length.

    Gold 2, Navy 1

    Hibbert vs. Foster----Hibberts heigth is too much for Foster to handle on the playground.

    Gold 2, Navy 2

    Dun vs. Granger----Don't let Dun fool you who played in a couple Harlem tourneys back in the day so he does know street ball, but Granger has just to much defense for Dun and Dun focuses on setting others up on pick and rolls instead of creating his own offense.

    Final score Gold 2 Navy 3

    First Dun and Danny have to do rock, paper, scissors to see who gets to pick first.

    Murph gets picked first followed by Ford.

    When choosing up sides you always go with who you think the best player is. Danny was asked last season, "not counting himself, who was the best player, and he said Daniels." So Danny would take Daniels first.
