Ash from Army of Darkness: Good...Bad...I'm the guy with the gun.
If the Warriors were desperate enough to offer Curry for Granger straight up you have to jump on it. Granger is gonna be 30 by the time the Pacers are good enough to make a serious run at this rate- best case scenario. I know ppl are attached to him but though he's a very good player he's not an elite talent and isn't going to further grow as a player at his age.
Steph Curry is elite. He would replace Granger's scoring immediately and improve the distribution on the floor. Shooting wise he's got Reggie Miller talent, but he's obviously a better passer and finisher around the rim. Collison - Curry - George > Collison - Rush - Granger. It isn't debatable now and in 2 yrs it'll be even more obvious.
Small pg/sg is not nearly as big a deal in the modern NBA as it's being made to be here.
To think people would scoff at acquiring a rising star but want the team to waste $/resources on dime a dozen, already peaked "B list" guys like Iguodala & KMart....jeez.
Ellis is untouchable and I don't see any other fit between both teams. Granger would make them better than Curry. Curry would make the Pacers better than Granger.
Is this rumor officially dead.... Just asking?
Stop bringing up old rumors. It is a waste of time. I thought it was a new rumor until I opened it.
Is there a way to un-thank someone?
Christ. I logged on, saw this thread, and thought there were new and exciting trade rumors swirling about. Now I'm disappointed.
