    Default Draft Do-Over

    If you had the opportunity go back to draft at pick 13 once again, who would you take for the Pacers?

    Gee....I wonder who Seth is going to choose.
    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.

    Honestly I would take Tyler again or have worked hard on getting both Tyler and Ty Lawson

    I dont believe anyone chosen after Tyler has been much better so far (possibly Omar Crisspi in Sac)

    I am happy with Tyler, but if the draft was done over again and we couldn't get him, I think maybe Jeff Teague, B.J. Mullens or Ty Lawson.

    This could be an interesting thread.

    Yeah. I think he could be a solid rotational big man. No worse than McRoberts.

    From a PR standpoint drafting Tyler was a safe bet. I think he has brought in a few more fans, and a lot more national interest from people who have followed him throughout college.

    That and I think he's a heck of a ball player, too.

    He definitly has the skill but I dont know if he has the drive

    He was really unimpressive in his year at Ohio St

    talent is there though

    I put Casspi, but he wasn't really even on the radar at 13. I'm also happy with TH, but Casspi looks very good.

    I'm very happy with Tyler. Sure we needed and needed a point guard, but Tyler was an excellent pic,

    Yeah Casspi looks good to me, which we could have gotten him and Tyler

    I have a feeling a lot of people are going to pick Lawson, but I am not convinced Price wont be just as good. I think we got a real second round steal. I wasn't sure at the time, but I think Hansbrough was the best player available at 13. The PGs to get IMO, were Jennings, Evans, and Rubio, and they were all gone... I think Price will be on par with the rest of the PG crop of this draft, even Flynn.

    For the record, I was a big proponent before the draft of trading out. I still wish we'd gone that way, but I understand the allure of Hansbro from a marketing perspective.

    Regardless, this is a joke, right?

    We haven't actually seen an article that suggests this is happening?
    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!

    Where else you want to go?

    I struggle to find a reason to say anything positive about him

    Yes I guess it should have been put in green , but knowing Obie I bet he has Tyler shooting 3's in practice

    Pure Speculation though

    I voted for Tyler, with a close second to Casspi and Lawson. I hope Tyler can improve his shooting percentage and not get stuffed so much around the basket over time. He has brought some much needed national exposure to the team as well.

    Tyler's going to be a huge steal in the draft sometime in the future so I'm satisfied with our selection.

    Casspi and Lawson are the only two doing anything of note. Casspi looks good, but he's a SF, the least of our worries. I'd love Lawson prior to the draft and he's lived up to my expectations (can you believe some people said he'd fail because he dribbled 'too upright'? Talk about over-evaluating, wow...) so yes, I'd strongly consider a do-over for Lawson, especially with the upcoming draft looking strong on bigs and weaks on points.

    With that said, I'm perfectly happy with Hansbrough.

    I wouldn't have mind if we did go with Lawson.....and then used whatever $$$ that we had that went towards Watson to go to whatever the best PF/C that we could have gotten.

    But assuming that it was a foregone conclusion that AJ Price was going to be on the board at the 2nd round pick......then I would have stuck with Hansbrough or gone with Blair.

    The bottomline is that we needed to fill some needs at the PG and PF position. I'd have to look at what Big Men were available at the likely price that we signed Watson at....but I'd guess that we couldn't have gotten a solid Big Man ( that was equivelant to what we got with Watson )....but the best way to do it was to draft a Big Man and sign a backup PG.

    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.

    Nothing against Hansbrough, but Casspi is good and he's the first Israeli player in the NBA - I want a piece of that history!
