    First of all, welcome to the forum!

    And a good article, just another reason for me to continue my streak of optimism.

    I guess he lost me a little bit with the headline and his first sentence. If healthy I do not consider Tyler a draft mistake at all, not in the least.

    Plus he needs to use more paragraphs and larger print. Difficult to read

    He also said that Tyler could still potentially have a productive career, but the Pacers biggest need was at point guard in 2009 and it was their biggest need.

    I'm sick of this asinine argument about the Hansbrough pick. Just because we traded for someone who was picked after him doesn't mean it was a bad pick. It's far too early to evaluate Tyler.

    Now that we have a PG (who, by the way, was never on the roster with the 13th pick), PF is our biggest need. If Tyler stays healthy, I think he's got a good chance to grab the starting PF role and run with it.

    I feel the same way. I don't get why people are downing the Psycho T pick. If anything, I'm stoked about what's happened because now we have him AND Collison and didn't have to get rid of any major assets to make it happen.

    I think, in terms of the 2009 Draft, Bird makes out like a Bandit.

    I heard part of Bird's press conference on a sportscenter break on 1070. He said Tyler is healthy. If he stays healthy he probably will start with McBob backing him up. They at least need to give him a chance. When he played last year, he looked undersized, like maybe his arms are shorter than average, but he made it up by being Pyscho T. He would stop even if he got blocked, he would get the ball back and score or at least put it back up.

    6'11.5 wingspan on a 6'9.5" height (with shoes) is about average. What makes his arms look short is the fact that they're not toothpicks. He has a solid upper body.
