    Not to make it seem that I'm just joining on with the hype....

    But I honestly want Jennings if he's there at 13.

    Anyone I'd want before Jennings (Evans, Rubio, Griffin obviously, and maybe Hill) will be long gone by 13.

    I hate to say it the way I originally felt, but I am getting on the Jennings train if he is still there at 13.

    This seems like an appropriate place for this article. It's the guy who started in front of Jennings in Italy saying that he thinks Jennings will ultimately be a better player than Ricky Rubio.

    http://myespn.go.com/blogs/truehoop/...vs--Rubio.html

    I'm at the point where I'm almost hoping that Jennings is not available because I don't want to have to get all mad when we don't pick him.

    I'm aboard. It would be a mistake to pass up on a talent like him.

    Bird says he's looking for Chris Paul, but he also said he doesn't think that person is in this draft.

    Hes not going to better than CP3, thats just crazy talk. I dont think anyone in this draft will have a better NBA career than CP3

    I think Jennings is a hell of a talented player and would love to see him on the Pacers, I really hope his is available at 13 and we dont shoot ourselves in the foot and not pick him.

    I like some of what I see in Jennings, but I think this board gets a little too caught up in the potential hype.

    I remember seeing post of all the Gerald Green hype when he was the high flyer coming out of high school.

    Some people had there hopes up in the Shawne Williams hype.

    I also liked Bayless, but I remember the uproar when he was traded for Rush. Yeah I know the verdict is still out of Bayless.

    And now the Brandon Jennings hype. Yeah you can see the potential and hopefully he taps into it, but what if he doesn't? What if he never gets it?

    I understand wanting to gamble and wanting to make a big splash, and I wouldn't be upset with Jennings as the pick, but let's keep a level heads about things, but the Pacers can't afford to busted at #13 this year.

    Not saying Jennings will be a bust, but let's not put all your eggs in one basket full of potential

    I might even trade up a few spots to 10 or 11 to get him if necessary. Both the bucks and the Nets could use a point guard/jeff foster that could help them out. Maybe not a realistic option, but if they feel they can still get a good guy with our #13 and whatever we trade...

    I mean...look at our other options. Lawson, Hansbrough, Blair, Maynor, Teague. It's not really that I love Brandon Jennings so much as I dislike the other guys we are looking at with the 13th pick.

    There actually isn't a time better then now, in this draft, to go for a boom or bust player. You can't afford to draft a bust in a deep, strong draft were every one around you is improving. In a draft like this a team can settle for the "sure things" and really not improve the team much if at all.

    Drafting a bust in a draft like this doesn't hurt a team nearly as much as drafting a bust in a stronger draft.

    But if the guy you draft ends up being anything close to a star....in a draft like this...you improve your team immensely. Almost every other team in the draft will be adding role players at best.

    It all comes down to whats stronger...the risk or the reward?

    Jennings, in this draft....the reward is much, much stronger.

    I like the point guards we have now, and don't want to see the pick wasted on
    bringing in a rookie PG unless it will be used as a piece for a trade to bring in
    what we really need. And that need is some defensive power in the frontcourt.

    Also, what does anyone really know about this guy? What kind of attitude does he have? He's obviously isn't the brightest Crayola in the 128 box after trying three or four times to get into Arizona and not being able to make it. Is he the kind of guy who can come here and keep the straight and narrow?

    He has potential.

    I like confidence.

    I wonder about off-court issues and the fact he seems to like to be the center of attention.

    that is different, according to the reports Blair does not even has the ACL in his knees how is he going to play 82 games like that?

    Needless to say, I'd be thrilled if we got Jennings at 13.

    I'm still pretty new to the boards but I figured this was something I had to comment on. I can understand being cautious about taking him. There's something about him that makes me worry he'll be too out of control, and I still wonder just how "mature" he'll become. Being coachable is another thing. Didn't he start doing something different than the scouts were asking at a work out a little while ago? Granted he eventually did the play, but it was definately something that caught my attention. It makes you wonder about his ability to play in a set system vs. his every man for himself solo play. One last thing on this- if we end up getting him, how do you all think Jennings will play under a guy like Obie? Would this kid need a "players coach" to really get him started? Or could Obie slightly fall under that category of coaching?

    Having said all that, I still really want Jennings on this team. I think his natural ability and instinct sets him apart from the rest. It also gives him a huge ceiling for potential in my opinion- one that I think he can at least get close to achieving. Basically I think the good outweighs any potential "bad" with this kid. I'll be pumped if Jennings puts a Pacers hat on come draft day.
