    Default Interesting words regarding McRoberts from JOB

    From @mg_indy

    "4 those still skeptical about Josh starting, JOB said after practice that if we had a game 2nite, JMac wouldn't only start- but play 36 min."



    All i have to say about that is WOO fu***** HOO. It seems to me that all of PD for the most part is against McRoberts getting quality playing time. I still don't understand why people feel strongly about this.. He's an amazing talent who's extremely athletic for his size, who unfortunately hadn't received much playing time due to JOB being stubborn and using his man-crush Murphy alot. While Murph was draining 3's, JMAC was quietly waiting for his turn, and if you noticed at the end of last season, he got alot more playing time, which showed me his time is coming. He put on muscle this summer i believe, which will make him more of a true PF. he'll be getting boards while stretching the floor and making the occasional 3 pointer. Do i think he's the future PF of the Pacers for many years to come? i don't know actually, he could be... if he's as good as i hear/think he'll be this season, him and Hansbrough could be a great combo of PF's for the pacers... guys who just wanna win. We are stacked in talent, all we need is more experience, more confidence and more support from the fans, because i seriously believe they feed off the fans, and how are they gonna use Conseco as home advantage when theres only 11,000 or whatever at the games..seriously.. they need us more than ever and i will be supporting my favorite team every game because i'm a die hard pacers fan and i hope everyone here can make it to a couple games if you don't have season tix or in area 55.

    I'll say this now, I'm not going to allow fans pulling too far the other way on him to make me be contrarian sp?. It happened with Gordon Hayward, I'm not to allow it again.

    I'm all for McRoberts getting a lot of PT and possibily starting. I thought last year when he came in nothing but good things happened.

    Honestly this doesn't surprise me....Josh is the only other big man taking and making 3's. Oh and Jim's opinion on a player DOES NOT make them a good player. They just FIT his system. Let's a see a few of Jim's PF's A. Walker, W. McCarthy, T. Murphy...... now J. McRoberts. They can shoot the 3 so in Jim's eyes they're GGRRRREEEAAATTTT!!!!! I DONT CARE what Jim thinks.

    I might actually go to a few games again if McRoberts is given his chance to make an impact on the floor playing the way he is capable of playing. That would boost the team energy and performance as much as anything else we have been led to believe is going to happen in my opinion.

    That pretty much sums up what I took from Jimmy's quote.

    Larry is not coming back, he didn't have a meeting with Orlando for not reason, yeah he is coming back to the NBA but not to the Pacers, the notion that he is a taking a year off and then come back is absurd.

    ok...since no one will say it, my initial thought is that what JO'B says now is "irrelevant" until I actually see McRoberts play 36 minutes and is starting.

    Fans didn't fall in love with josh because of the 3, if he can ever be nearly as good as murphy shooting the 3 ball he will be a great player, because the fans know that he can positively impact the game in other areas where murphy could not or would not do.

    We should be happy with this because there is one more guy that he could have tried to plug into our pf spot, and can shoot the three. Yeah. He could have gone with posey. Lets just be thankful i t doesn't seem like he will.

    He has been running with the "blue team" which loooks like it is the starters right now. So that does lead me to believe that if the season started today, Josh would start and significant minutes.

    Does that mean he wil start on Oct 27th? Only time will tell. Does this mean he is playing that much better than Tyler? There is still over 3 weeks left until the first "real" game. Tyler will have a chance to win the starting spot during the rest of camp and during preseason games.

    Will I be mad if Josh starts? No, not at all. The average fan might be, but I and many of us here know Josh has a ton of potential and given playing time I think he will live up to it. I won't be mad if Josh, or Tyler starts. Please just not Jeff. I like Jeff, I just want someone who can score starting.

    By the way, I had an average fan come up to me and say that they heard Josh might start and that if Josh starts we must really suck at PF. He also thought Josh had been cut from 3 teams before he got here. I told him Josh has great potential and hasn't been cut before.

    To me, this tells me more about where Hansbrough is at than anything else.

    I like Josh. I'm glad to see him get an opportunity, and I hope it's because he's played well. When he says Josh would play 36 minutes what I here is "We don't have anybody else who's ready to be out there right now."

    Let him start... I would support that, because we don't have a lot of other options currently. I would imagine Tyler is going to need more time to get fully back in the mix of things. This will be Mcbob's chance to really show us what he can do. I have my doubts, but I'm for him getting a chance to start.

    Is it just possible to believe that Josh has actually grown as a player, and seeing the opportunity at hand, put in mad work to seize it?

    An interview clip on 1070 this afternoon had JOB saying that McRoberts has been the top performer on the entire roster during training so far this week... so I think it's likely more than him being the only option available... happy for the kid and the team... could we possibly have some young depth in the making?

    Great post! Never thought of it like that. Seems very pausible. What you are saying is that the Pacers still don't have their starting PF of the future, which I have never bought into with all the McBob and Hans hype. My guess Bird is still looking, and I'm hoping towards Jason Thompson.

    I find it disconcerting that Hansbrough hasn't shown up much in the practice videos online. Anybody else see a trend of no news/video on the Hans?

    JOb was just getting tired of explaining why he's not playing McRoberts...and he got a little testy.

    The NBA is a business and sometimes the message needs to be framed for the fans. The reality is, if he played McRoberts, fans would not want to see Murphy on the floor. If Murphy sits on the bench, his value plummets...and that's a huge contract to sit on the bench.

    Now that Murph's been traded and more of the bloated contracts get moved, things will start to make more sense...
