    You should have waited with all these polls.
    People here seem to have a very short memory. For example, some might say Tyler has been our best player since the start of the season. Of course, they say it -Now-, after he was good recently.
    Last night, and during pretty much this month, Danny did not play well, so you'll see a lot of false negative comments. And if Danny goes 16-16 the next game, you'll see false positive comments.

    But anyway.
    I'm slightly disappointed with Danny this season I guess, I'm not frustrated and "argh lets trade him he sucks" but yeah I'm sort of disappointed. Maybe he's not giving 100% of himself, maybe he's tired of losing, maybe there's something going on backstage. It doesn't matter. His scoring dropped and it bothers me.
    08-09 made me think "Wow. This guy is a superstar". He had hustle, he was among the best scorers in the league, all star, all that.
    Last year, I don't know what went wrong, but he did not play that well. He was still a great scorer, but proved he alone cannot carry our offense. His defense took a step back also. I guess it's ok though, because he was still generally a great player.
    This year... Well... Makes last year look good. His supporting cast kinda sucks, and he's still a good player, but I thought I'd see more of him. Danny never had top iso, but he should at least move without the ball more. The only really great game he had this season, was against Detroit. And I'm not even going to say anything about the "lack of leadership". I'm fine with that, Leadership is more of a bonus than a must, if he doesn't want to lead... so be it.

    So, I took the 4th option, Maybe I'll change it to 3rd, because I'm only slightly disappointed. I still think he's a great player, I still have hope, and I still want to see him with us

    Only because there isn't a "very, very, very disappointed" option.

    It's hard to not be disappointed with our leading scorer and star after I saw his "effort" on offense and defense after watching him off the ball. In the last three games, he's shot 0-13 from three point range (9 missed shots last night), and 10-43 from the field. Yes, it's a very small portion of the season, but it's recent activity, and as our main option, he shouldn't ever been playing this poorly without adjustments being made. I really hope it's other factors besides his own decline, but I wonder if he realizes his days are numbered if/when Paul starts out-performing him.

    I'm incredibly disappointed with the way he's played this year after improving his game to be the leader of this team.

    He just fell apart this year and isn't playing like himself.

    I just hope he figures something out come next season because this all appears to be a mental thing.

    Coming into this season, there were warning flags. The not playing for TEAM USA. The comments he made over there.

    Then the season started and it seemed like everyone who played on that team made a step forward- except for Granger.

    Look what we have now. A player by all accounts who looks disinterested in basketball, who is playing poorly and letting it get to him.

    The Danny we got during the start of the Vogel era is the Danny I expect.

    The Danny I see is the Danny that will be traded for 60 cents on the dollar and will hurt the franchise.

    With that said- it's hard to be very disappointed given that he is the man right now and is carrying the team from being more than the laughingstock that it currently is right now. While it's not true right now, it was true earlier in the season.

    It must be frustrating for him. But it's frustrating for me that he's letting it get to him.

    The way Danny has acted does not lead to winning time. Danny wants to go to winning time- but he sure as hell isn't acting like it.


    To me, that's the biggest disappointment of them all.

    Ya I don't get Granger this year. I still think that when he applies himself he's easily the best player on this team, but that is not reality right now. He hasn't necessarily done anything horrible, his play has just been so inconsistent and at times disappointingly disinterested that it really has me scratching my head.
    There are two types of quarterbacks in the league: Those whom over time, the league figures out ... and those who figure out the league.

    Something ain't right between the pipes right now. Almost all year. I keep thinking about that first Miami game where he played stellar D and shot well and wonder where that's at now? He's playing like he's got nothing to prove.

    Danny has been on a steady decline since JOB took over. I truly believe Jim broke his game by turning him into a jump-shooter and I'm starting to seriously doubt he'll ever get it back.

    Danny's problem is all mental. We know he has the talent, but he doesn't appear to have the smarts/work ethic to match it.

    Other than JOB, I think he might have been hurt by World Cup, mentally. Being relegated to a benchwarmer behind guys who had similar or lower status in the NBA.

    Also, it's tougher for a shooter to overcome mental/confidence issues. If we had a coaching staff that would push him to focus his energy on defense / drives when his shot is off, he might have avoided this huge slump.

    As has already been pointed out, he hasn't been consistently right since those "personal issues/problems" cropped up a while ago.

    Out of respect for Danny, I will not say what those "personal issues" which kept him out of that one game last year were because it has no reason to be public.

    But that situation is long since over and done with. I don't believe that is affecting him on the court at this point.

    I'm wondering if he mentally checked out during the draft. He was meant to be a featured guest during the draft night party. Then there's the New Jersey rumor, which Larry denied, yet 'mysteriously' Danny ended up not attending at Conseco that night after all.

    If Larry really did sell him on waiting it out through the bad years so that he could be a key piece in the brighter future, I think it's understandable for Danny to have felt (and I use this word very loosely) 'betrayed' by that New Jersey deal.

    I think he's smart enough to realize this is a business, and that people get traded all the time, but he's still a human being, and there's more to being a person than logic.

    I'm disappointed because after playing well in February - even during their losses - he's dropped well below average in the last 5 games in March.

    Something is really bothering him lately and it's not necessarily the losing of games. Whatever it is is much more recent and seems to have started with the game against OKC. I think - and this is a real long stretch - that getting outplayed and outworked by Kevin Durant and Andre Iguodala has really shattered his confidence.

    He lost playing time last summer during the World Championships to Durant and Iguodala. Maybe playing against them and struggling so badly brought him back to last summer.

    Maybe that thread/poll on whether or not he can be a #1 guy last week messed with his head? He hasn't had a good game since and the Pacers haven't won a game since then either. Coincidence? Could PD be that powerful?

    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.

    I don't believe the other part about Durant and Iggy either... at least I really hope that's not the case.

    We he was getting badly outplayed and outworked by those two.

    But even he probably knows he's not even close to their level.

    What's your theory, then? All the losing? Coaching changes? Combination of all?
