I'm probly in the minority that thinks Granger has been pretty much at the same plateau for the past 3 years, and didn't have near the drop-off this year that most on here seem to think. I don't think his defense is near as bad as everyone thinks. I honestly think he's a victim of expectations and a system that was poor under JOB.
He's a very good player. He's Danny Granger.. he's not Paul Pierce, because Paul Pierce is Paul Pierce, and Danny Granger is Danny Granger. You can argue all day who's the better player, I honestly feel Pierce is the better player, but that doesn't make Granger a bad player. He's just a player with a different skillset, on a team that is not the Boston Celtics.
He's been mostly consistent since he's been here, exceeded expectations when we drafted him, been forced to be the face of this franchise when he's honestly probly not built for that, and mostly handled it admirably. He's also represented the USA. He's not ridiculously expensive. He's not that old. What's not to like? I think mostly Pacer fans have become overly critical unnecessarily and unfairly.
So that said... back to the thread title, will he be significantly better? Probly not. He's probly going to be the same. He's going to be a damn good player for us. It's the *rest of the team* that needs to improve.
