I've always had somewhat of a love/hate thing for Granger's game. I was even up for trading him to New Jersey on draft night last season. He'll have nights where he's absolutely terrible, chucking shots left and right, turning the ball over 5-8 times in a game, and just downright sucking it up. Then he'll have those nights where he carries our team, shows aggression in getting to the basket or to the foul line, takes smart shots and rebounds his rear end off (for a SF).
What this playoff series did for me is make me realize that Danny Granger IS still that All-Star player that we saw a couple of seasons ago and that he isn't backing down from anything. Danny's play against the Bulls really won me over and has me thinking that he's truly a franchise guy. Yes he needs some help. Who doesn't? But we can become a very successful team with Danny as our best player, and I'm now convinced of that.
How many people are looking at Danny in a different light now? Surely, I'm not the only one.
