Don't get me wrong, Watson had a really nice 1st half, and plays really well in spurts, but we need a real floor leader, and I think that would solve a lot of our droughts. Rondo is a terrible shooter, but he still does so much for the Celtics. Good defense and ball pressure and he gets guys EASY shots.
Perkins got so many layups, Scals, and other bench players had really good looks.
Our 8 million dollar PG played like 12 minutes tonight, and we were still leading the game until Boston's 3rd quarter surge. Ford's backup has gotten the starting position EVERYWHERE he has been, and I'd take every last one of them as the starting PG on our team. Calderon, Jack, Mo Williams, and I prefer Watson right now.
I know a lot of folks still want Murph gone, and that makes some sense, but Murph has actually started hitting shots, and when he does that, he's not as terrible as folks make him out to be.
The sad thing is I don't see another team wanting him at all. And he would be dumb not to pick up his option.
How come no matter what, the Pacers end up with contracts and players that can't be moved?
