Thread: Aren't you tired of the Granger rumors?

  1. #1

    Default Aren't you tired of the Granger rumors?

    It seems like these Danny Granger rumors are getting more popular recently. A bunch of Cavs' fans (who are extremely desperate) think that offering Mo Williams and/or Delonte West along with a draft pick would lure in Granger. Granger is the best thing we got and I heard a while ago that Bird said he won't open up to any trade rumors for Granger and Hibbert. And that Net's rumor? Wow. it only got popular on some local indy station and hoopshype.com. Seriously??? They think Granger will go to the Bulls and all of that. And with Paul George, they thnk Indy totally gave up on No. 33! It's laughable, really. Pretty much, when it all goes down, they say that all you need is a point guard to lure in Granger.

    Idiots....

    You tired of these rumors?

    I have yet to hear a single Granger trade rumor from any source that would have any knowledge at all of the situation or any connection to the Pacers.

    Thus the answer to the thread title is "no" since i can't be tired of something that has to my knowledge never occurred.

    For the poll, I put "no" he won't leave.
    The poster "pacertom" since this forum began (and before!). I changed my name here to "Slick Pinkham" in honor of the imaginary player That Bobby "Slick" Leonard picked late in the 1971 ABA draft (true story!)

    Since I consider bleacherreport to have about as much clout with NBA rumors as the bagel I just ate for breakfast, I'm not too worried about any Granger rumors...

    But according to the bagel, word on the street is that Larry Bird told his dog, who told the mailman, who told some internet blogger, Danny Granger is talking to Eddie Gill and David Harrison about forming a Superteam in Milwaulkee. Don't take it from me, take it from the bagel.

    Do you think Jordan would be a good fit in the current Pacers system? I'd 'shop him in a Flo-Jo uni, since I'd rather have him in that era.

    The only rumor I know of was the rumor about him going to the Nets and that came out about the afternoon of the draft (when there are hundreds of rumors) but it only lasted about 45 minutes.

    I really haven't heard any rumors surrounding Granger since the draft, but Cleveland doesn't have anything on their roster worth Granger. No combination of players would get him.

    In all seriousness though, I am tired of looking at other fan boards across the web and seeing ridiculous trade ideas for granger. I wouldn't be tired of them if they were Granger for Paul, or Granger for Melo.

    Easy solution. Don't look.

    The trades other fan boards come up with are no more ridiculous than the trades proposed on this board. Such as, Granger for Paul or Granger for Melo.

    There were only 2 actually proposed trades involving Danny.

    Minnesota and New Jersey.

    We gladly turned down both.

    You Can Keep Dreaming All You Want: Danny Granger Won't Leave The Pacers

    By Josh Dhani (Correspondent) on July 20, 2010

    It always makes me laugh hysterically when people say all these dumb rumors of Danny Granger going to a team.

    There’s a bunch of articles I see that say that all you need to do is give a point guard and a draft pick to them and Granger is on your team.

    Please, my only suggestions to you for saying is, One: lay off on the pipe, or Two: Stop acting stupid. Or is it both?

    But seriously, it just plains pisses me off when they say that.

    Larry Bird has already made it official so many times that the team will open up for any trade rumors, except any involving Roy Hibbert or Granger.

    And now with the drafting of Paul George, they are saying Granger is going to leave even more now. What the hell?

    First, people started saying stupid things like the Indiana Pacers leaving the state to go to Vancouver or something, and now they are all making up a bunch of lies of Granger leaving.

    The Pacers going to Vancouver, or any other place, will never happen. And it has already been clear because Indianapolis and the Pacers already under agreement.

    They could stay in Indy up to 2018.

    And anyways, the Pacers leaving Indy is like taking away football from Alabama, soccer from Europe, or all the sports from New Orleans.

    Just stop it!

    I have read a bunch of articles saying Granger will go to a team like the New Jersey Nets. They said a deal went down that the third round draft pick and Devin Harris would go to Indy for the tenth pick and Granger before the Draft on June 24th.

    Please.

    That rumor only got famous on a local Indiana radio station that nobody really cares about and hoopshype.com. HAHA! Are you serious?

    Larry Bird knows that Granger is all the team has. And needing a point guard? Are you blind?

    The team already has a sure-to-be-Gilbert-Arenas-non-gunning-but-talent-wise-clone in Lance Stephenson and a great backup in T.J. Ford.

    Paul George will most likely take over small forward with Dahntay Jones at shooting guard.

    Believe it or not, Granger will play power forward with Troy Murphy backing him up. Center will be Roy Hibbert, obviously.

    You can keep dreaming all you want, but Granger will not leave.
    By the way, that lineup won't happen. DJones isn't starting over Rush, and if Granger is starting power forward, then you can bet that Murphy would be starting center. Also, those are pretty ridiculous claims about Lance being Gilbert Arenas level talent, and an even more ridiculous claim that T.J. Ford is a great backup.

    I think my favorite part of the article is where an article appearing on bleacher report has the balls to laugh at the reporting done on other sites. Great comedy right there.

    Not trying to be disrespectful, but constructive:

    You should look into some sort of composition class or Journalism at your school. You seem to have a passion for writing and have a great imagination! Taking a class in that field will really help your writing skills! Who knows, you might take Mike Wells' job someday!

    Now, fabricating rumors is something everyone in their early teen years likes to do. If you have a legitimate rumor, from a legitimate source, then you will begin to build credit. But if you have a non-legitimate rumor, from your imagination, you will lose credit and readers. I used to do the same thing over at realgm. But hey, thanks for joining our little cult of pacers fans! I hope you post often here, and become a valued poster on this awesome site!
