    Im with you on the "Diamond In The Rough" bit, although I think Aaron Jackson may fit that mold as well. Especially if we arent able to keep Jack.

    I hope so, too, though then the confusion over the use of the name "Jack" will be extended even further. Already it is unclear when some says "Jack" whether they mean Jarrett or Steven or Mark.

    O'Brien is coaching because 3-5 rotation players are on the summer roster that could all use more direct familiarity with what is going to be run in the regular season.

    Larry is not coming back, he didn't have a meeting with Orlando for not reason, yeah he is coming back to the NBA but not to the Pacers, the notion that he is a taking a year off and then come back is absurd.

    I'm sure they archive the games. I'll have to look. Without doing it illegally, I'm not sure how to do it.

    The stream works for me well.
    J. MacRoberts really looks bulk up, I am telling it from the poor resolution of the broadcast..
    T. Hansbrouger jumps up and down, really energetic.
    B. Rush don't have his touch today. Looking forward for his handling which is what he is working in the summer. don't observe it in the first half game.

    Hansbrough and McRoberts remind of me a better version of Foster and Pollard. Just two guys out there that aren't afraid of contact and love to hustle

    those announcers are the best thing ever to happen to summer league. Put them on ESPN next season. I've never laughed to hard during a basketball game, ever.

    If you know of a way we can watch the games after the fact please let me know because I am pretty much busy during all the scheduled games this week. Is it true that the games are actually watchable now? In previous years it has looked like junk, you could not even distuinguish players.

    Why do people hate those announcers? They're just doing volunteer work. Maybe I'm just defensive because I think I'd announce similar to how they are...

    It was better IMO. I went in expecting to not tell who was who, but I could this year. Still somewhat difficult, though. I'd recommend taking a look if you can.

    I agree, I could actually read the numbers on their jersey's this time. Could be the 32" Vizio though. It is quite a difference.

    I loved watching Hansbrough. I know its only the first game, but I like what I saw out there today. He came out with a lot of hustle. He didnt shy away from contact and wasnt intimidated from Speights.

    I really wish Hibbert can pick his game up. He played really sloppy out there, he let Speights dummy him around. Lets all hope that this is only the first summer league game so Hibbert should be able to bounce back. The 2 commentators said Hibbert has hands like frying-pans. And he really did today.

    One other bright spot I think we have is in Price. He had a great looking shot from beyond the arch and he seemed pretty quick on the dribble.

    Looking forward to our next game tomorrow! I honestly dont care if we win or lose in summer league, I just want these guys, especially Hibbert and Hansbrough, to get some jitters out and get comfortable with one another

    Don't know if it has been posted yet, but I just found this nice little read on Hoopsworld...

    http://www.hoopsworld.com/Story.asp?story_id=13220

    by Alex Raskin

    Orlando: Pacer University

    By: Alex Raskin Last Updated: 7/8/09 12:48 AM ET | 131 times read



    Adjust font size:In 2007 Roy Hibbert's Georgetown Hoyas beat Tyler Hansbrough's North Carolina Tar Heels in the Elite Eight.

    Now Hansbrough is beating Hibbert down the floor as his teammate on the Pacers' summer league team in Orlando.

    "Sometimes (Hansbrough is) running the break and I tell him, 'Let me get down there first so I can post up strong,' and a lot of big guys can't handle that so they usually call a foul so I can go to the line," Hibbert told HOOPSWORLD after racking up 24 points and eight rebounds against the Oklahoma City Thunder's summer squad. "We're just trying to experiment now to see what works when we get to the season."

    And "experiment" seems like an excellent term for a squad of intelligent, big-name college players like Hibbert and Hansbrough.

    After a draft that saw an American coming out of Rome (Brandon Jennings), a Spanish prodigy at point guard (Ricky Rubio) and 7-3 center from Tanzania (Hasheem Thabeet), the Pacers are a reminder that there is still a need for veteran college players in the NBA.

    Danny Granger was a star at New Mexico (who nearly attended Yale) before being taken by the Pacers with the 17th pick in 2005. Mike Dunleavy and Josh McRoberts are each Dukies while Jarrett Jack (Georgia Tech), Brandon Rush (Kansas), T.J. Ford (Texas), Troy Murphy (Notre Dame) and Marquis Daniels (Auburn) all played under the spotlight at the highest amateur level. Daniels, McRoberts and Jack could be playing elsewhere next season, but General Manager David Morway and President of Basketball Operations Larry Bird clearly value the most traditional talent pool.

    It's a far cry from the 2002-2003 Pacers that featured three guys (Jermaine O'Neal, Al Harrington, and Jonathan Bender) that never stepped onto an NCAA court.

    One of the benefits of mixing premier college talent is that there is a lot of familiarity and respect for each other's games.

    "When (Hansbrough) got drafted I called him and said I was excited to play with him," Hibbert said. "I told him we have a lot of work to do and it starts in the summer league."

    You don't have to tell Hansbrough twice. The former All-American has scored 40 points in two summer league games to go with nine rebounds.

    "Obviously, he has one thing on his mind: to play hard," said Hibbert. "I hear him out there being like, 'Let's get this!' And obviously, a rookie coming in, doing that, is going to help the team."

    While Hansbrough was winning a National Championship in his final season at UNC, Hibbert was going through his ups and downs in Indiana. Considered a project by many analysts, Hibbert played in only 25% of his team's minutes but still managed to score over seven points per game as a rookie.

    Hansbrough's presence is a huge boon to Hibbert during the summer league. Last season, Hibbert was often the center of the defense's attention—a far cry from his reality in the NBA.

    But now, with Hansbrough on board, Hibbert can use the summer to further his understanding of how to compliment other players.

    "Last year, I was the main post presence, but now coach is calling plays for him and that eases me up and lets me read the defense and see where I can help him out and vice versa," he said.

    Most importantly, playing with better talent gives Hibbert a better sense of life in the NBA.

    "I think if you have two guys that can score in the post, it really eases things up," Hibbert noted. "It puts pressure on the defense.

    "(Hansbrough and I have been) meshing really well," he continued. "I know last year (during the summer league), trying to go to the offensive boards, two or three people went to box me out. But now, I got him down there and they're going to have a hard time boxing both of us out."

    Clearly, if a player has made it this far, they've been near the top wherever they've played. But if you can teach someone what it's like to be a third or fourth option, then you've prepared them for the NBA.

    The 2009-2010 Pacers are considered a young team, but with a couple more semesters of summer league, they'll graduate from college to NBA stars.

    I'm pretty sure Roy's poor stats last year weren't due to defensive attention, but due to the fact he didn't play.....
