    Just left Pacers practice. Josh McRoberts is in the drivers seat for the starting PF spot.
    Nothing surprising about the first. I'll believe it when I see it on the second one.

    He followed up with these:


    mg_indy Michael Grady Jmac & Roy pass well, r very active & play well 2gether. Not surprising since both spent a lot of time 2gether n Indy during the offseason.

    mg_indy Michael Grady The chemistry between Roy & Jmac was evident during the 60-min. scrimmage the media watched 2day. JOB repeated as much after practice.

    Overall the scrimmage was sloppy...but that's expected. It was good 2 c Jeff out there looking like his old self & Dunleavy has found his J

    The rookies have some work to do. Lance and PG had highs and lows...while Rolle had it rough on his first day.

    Dunleavy is only in the starting lineup because of Rush's suspension.

    Also, I'll remind you of my favorite stat that we've all forgotten:

    During Dunleavy's breakout season (his first under O'Brien), his offensive output far surpassed the negative impact he had one the defensive end. He had the highest +/- on the team that year, and by most statistical measures, had a better season than Granger in terms of both individual success and team impact.

    Dun's also a good team defender who's excellent in rotations and has a knack for taking charges. He just doesn't have the lateral quickness to guard most 2's or the strength to guard most 3's.

    One positive of Dun starting will be that it will put a lot more pressure on Danny to play good wing defense since he'll be guarding the other team's best wing.

    Say what?

    For what it's worth...of the 60 minutes I saw, TJ got the better of DC 2day.

    I'm just kidding about the say what. I know it's DC's first day with us.

    TJ is a very good individual basketball player, probably better than Collison.

    It's too bad for him that basketball is a team sport.

    I hope this will temper a bit the excitement in signing Rolle. Hopefully he can develop but if Derrick Favors is two years from being a contributor, as the number 3 pick in the draft, we can expect a much longer learning curve with Magnum

    Right, but isn't Rolle 4-5 years older than Favors?

    I'm okay with this lineup:

    DC
    Dun
    DG33
    JMac
    Roy

    Nothing wrong with it yet.

    I love the thought of McBeast starting. If we want to run and gun start him if we need a defensive lineup start The Handy Man at 4.

    Fair point, but I think Favors has the pedigree to be a great one , where I envision Rolle, at his best, a solid rotation player like Almondson or Birdman

    I would truly hate it if Dunleavy started over George and Rush...assuming that George and Rush are ready to play

    Theres all this talk about defence,...Dunleavy and defence shouldnt be in the same sentence

    I wouldn't worry about the Rooks just yet, Magnum included. First day against the big boys pursuing their life long dreams, I'm sure they were a little nervous.

    As for TJ vs DC, ya maybe today, that doesn't really surprise me. TJ knows the system, knows his teammates and has NBA caliber skills. Let's see how they look in 2 weeks after DC has adjusted and TJ falls into the same bad habits. Lastly, I wonder what MG is basing it on, scoring, finding teammates, defense, all of it? I'm not saying MG doesn't know, but it's pretty subjective sometimes unless you really pay close attention to details of whats going on.

    mg_indy should just stick to Josh, McRoberts, McBob or McBeard, when I first glance the tweet....I'm thinking TMac ( as in McGrady ). TMac and JMac are just too close in terms of spelling and recognition.

    PG may have the most upside of all of them....but even Bird said that PG isn't ready to contribute. I have no problem with starting BRush ahead of Dunleavy for the very reasons that you suggest....but if PG doesn't appear ready then he shouldn't be playing ahead of Dunleavy or even Posey in the lineup.

    IMHO...unless PG is totally blowing away the competition in Practice ( a la AJ last season ) then I do not expect to see PG play any significant playing time ( unless 2 or 3 Wings goes down with injuries ). No rush though.....PG will get all the Playing time he needs next season once Dunleavy is off the roster.

    Dun is a smart defender and good team defender. Yes, he has slow lateral movement.

    If the good Dun from a couple years back shows up (I'm very doubtful), he will be twice as good as Rush or the current Paul George.

    I can't find any more current stats, but in 05-06 Dunleavy drew 63 charges.
