    I'm just hoping he makes the team so it might lead to us (the Pacers) getting a little bit of national attention...something other than Shawne Williams getting arrested again.

    if usa is going to be relying on alot of 3s then that could turn out bad if they have a bad shooting night.

    The 3 ball is a bigger part of FIBA ball. Refs simply don't call fouls inside. You can get away with hacking guys in the post. That's why Tim Duncan retired from FIBA ball after 2004. He didn't enjoy not getting calls.

    This team is going to be about running, gunning, shooting the 3 and trying to get points of turnovers. They don't have a lot of quality size up front.

    I get the feeling that being surrounded by so many good players that granger maybe is a lil gun shy or feels he doesn't need to do much. What makes me think that more is how he played when he was in the all star game a few yrs ago

    With the exception of Durant, this is a guard dominated team and tonight is a guard dominated game.

    When you have this many talented guards who handle the ball this much, a non-guard just isn't going to see the ball much unless his name is Kevin Durant.

    I think Danny would have benefited more on the Blue team. He's basically subbing in for Durant, and on a team with scoring PGs like Rose, Curry and even Eric Gordon at times.

    The Blue team has Rondo, Billups and Westbrook who look to get others involved. This is why Gay and Mayo, even Love are getting shot attempts.

    The White team is A LOT better then the Blue team b/c they have more scorers. If Granger and say Eric Gordon were on the Blue team instead of say Green and Mayo, I think this game would be more interesting

    If playing time says anything, it's not looking good for Granger or Gerald Wallace being mostly stuck to the white team's bench

    Why didn't Granger dunk the ball instead of reverse layup? Nice Block and pass to follow though

    He now has 4 fouls. I hope he makes it, but judging by this showcase only.... uncertain

    I watched it for a few minutes and didn't see Danny play. He ended up with only 5 points. Before the scrimmage I thought Danny had a great chance to make the team. Now that he didn't paly much, and I would guess he didn't really take advantage of the times he got in, I am worried Danny might get cut. I was thinking he should make before Wallace and Gay.

    While it would be an honor and a learning experience for him, it may be in his and the Pacers' best interest for him not to make the team and get 100% healthy prior to training camp.

    But, having further exposure to Coach K wouldn't be a bad thing for him, either.

    Either way it goes could be beneficial, I guess.
