    Speaking of rookies, has anyone been watching the Bobcats beyond highlights & box scores? One wonders about the implications that the Jax acquisition has on the team's early evaluation of Gerald Henderson. (Maybe they're thinking in seasonal stop-gap terms, but good luck trading Jax again.)

    It just sucks that the Bucks drafted him and he's gonna pull them up in the Central. Not only that they still have Redd who has yet to play.

    Based on how Jennings is playing, he is definitly worthy of being a 2nd pick.

    I. Love. Brandon. Jennings.

    I don't like when Skiles plays him together with Ridnour, though. It takes the ball out of Brandon's hands on some situations. However, this might not be the norm and Skiles could just be adjusting to Carlisle playing Barea/Kidd/Terry.

    I wish we could go back and bump the old Brandon Jennings threads.
    Welcome to Pacers Digest! New around here? Here are three tips for making the forum a great place to talk about Pacers basketball.

    • Log in. Even if you want to read instead of post, it's helpful because it lets you:
    • Change your signature options. You can hide all signatures by choosing "Settings" (top right) then "General Settings" (middle left) and unchecking the box "Show Signatures" (in the "Thread Display Options" area).
    • Create an ignore list. I know it may seem unneighborly. But you're here to talk about the Pacers, not argue with someone who's just looking for an argument. Most of the regular users on here make use (at least occasionally) of the "Ignore" feature. Just go to "Settings" -> "Edit Ignore List" and add the names.

    Enjoy your time at PD!

    if we do find the Jennings threads, anything that can be found as me having said Jennings was over rated is nothing but lies lies and more lies..

    I never really said that, I just compared him to Brooks...

    For those that have seen Jennings play....... Is he essentially dominating the ball? How well is at getting teammates involved? Or is more AI then Steve Nash?
    Ash from Army of Darkness: Good...Bad...I'm the guy with the gun.

    This is David West, he is the Honey Badger, West just doesn't give a *****....he's pretty bad *ss cuz he has no regard for any other Player or Team whatsoever.

    Looked to be more AI to me....not a distributor, definitely a scorer. Lots of threes, lots of drives down the middle with a floater going in, and/or the foul. He did pass the ball, but generally there were better results when he kept it.

    I've see all of one game of his, should be said. Speedy little guy...fast and quick. Lots of cuts to get free worthy of Reggie or Rip.

    If he doesn't end up too full of himself, or even if he does, he's going to be a load to face.

    Now that I see his line for the night...8 assists. So he is dishing it, but his scoring threat jumps out at you.

    Brandon Jennings is my favorite non-Pacer rookie ever.

    HUGE fan of his. And he seems like a real kid too, pretty down to earth guy.

    I turned to the Memphis game looking to catch a glimpse of Tinsley and I don't think I've ever seen so many empty seats.

    I think 4,000 might even be a stretch. So sad...

    Big games back for some sidelined stars:

    Antawn Jamison has 31 pts and 10 boards in a win over the Cavs
    Rashard Lewis nets 17 pts and nearly misses the triple-double with 10 boards and 9 assists

    My prediction: Despite the ****ty start, the Wizards will be contending for a playoff spot come April (that is, unless they lock one up earlier)

    down 20 in Portland, Pistons cut it to 1 using a new press lineup. Hopefully that catches on.

    We're this freaking close to being a very good team. Just gotta find that extra punch to make up the difference.

    I saw a few highlights that showed tonf of emply seats right behind the benches. I usually figure those are sold seats no one is sitting in either because they didn't show, or if it at the beginning of the game or just after halftime maybe the fans just haven't made it to their seats yet

    Can you tell a significant difference between attendance at the Fieldhouse and attendance at wherever the Grizz play?

    Yes. Pacers attendance might not be that great, but it's not anywhere near as bad as in Memphis.

    You can kind of tell in this picture and this was taken in the second half.

    Knicks on verge of signing Iverson

    November 18, 2009 By ALAN HAHN

    INDIANAPOLIS - Allen Iverson has told associates he is prepared to come to New York and resuscitate not only his Hall of Fame career but also a desperate franchise trying to pacify its frustrated fans as it bridges the gap to 2010.

    Though no decision has been officially made by the Knicks, indications are that the Iverson Era - however brief it may be - could begin as early as Thursday night after the 34-year-old former MVP clears waivers at 6 p.m. It may all hinge on how both sides come out of a conversation that is expected to take place Thursday.

    "We wouldn't be considering it if we thought we were functioning well and we're not," Walsh said of the Knicks, who went into last night's game against the Pacers with a 1-9 record. "And I want to make sure if we do something like this it's the right thing to do."

    Walsh said if the Knicks, who like Newsday are owned by Cablevision, do offer Iverson a contract - likely the $1.4 million veteran's minimum - it will be done immediately after he clears waivers.

    Walsh spent his day back home in Indianapolis on the phone getting advice from several resources, including Larry Brown, who coached Iverson in Philadelphia and recently revealed that the Bobcats made an offer for Iverson in September. But Iverson chose to take the higher offer from the Memphis Grizzlies. Brown said Charlotte, with its glut at guard, wouldn't have a spot for Iverson at this point.

    Mike D'Antoni seems comfortable with signing Iverson, who comes with loads of talent and baggage (not to mention a sizable entourage that can't wait to see him return to the Northeast). Walsh and D'Antoni still want to talk first with Iverson, who may have to be allowed his own set of rules, especially regarding practice.

    Walsh said if D'Antoni wasn't on board, "I won't do it . . . I'm not going to force anybody on the coach." It would be an about-face by D'Antoni, who last summer was against signing Iverson as a free agent. "We know exactly who Allen Iverson is and he brings a lot of very positive things to the table," D'Antoni said. "We'll see if the organization is going to change directions because it's a change of direction, there's no doubt about it."

    But Walsh said Iverson's arrival wouldn't signal the end to any development plans for the team's young players, such as Danilo Gallinari, Wilson Chandler, Toney Douglas and Jordan Hill.

    "I think the young players can benefit, if they're not getting it done the way they are, maybe they could benefit by having a guy that can show them how to get it done," Walsh said. "This would be a move to make it better for the young players to learn."

    Getting a little old watching us play extremely well on the road out west and see us losing in the last minute or two.

    We're outworking the **** out of teams on a nightly basis. Usually you expect to get rewarded for that. So far, we haven't.
