    He's averaging almost 20 and 10 in the preseason. He's shooting 65%. He's had 2.5 assists and 1.5 blocks per game against only one turnover per game.

    This kid would have been our starting center this year.
    Welcome to Pacers Digest! New around here? Here are three tips for making the forum a great place to talk about Pacers basketball.

    • Log in. Even if you want to read instead of post, it's helpful because it lets you:
    • Change your signature options. You can hide all signatures by choosing "Settings" (top right) then "General Settings" (middle left) and unchecking the box "Show Signatures" (in the "Thread Display Options" area).
    • Create an ignore list. I know it may seem unneighborly. But you're here to talk about the Pacers, not argue with someone who's just looking for an argument. Most of the regular users on here make use (at least occasionally) of the "Ignore" feature. Just go to "Settings" -> "Edit Ignore List" and add the names.

    Enjoy your time at PD!

    Maybe we could trade Fred Jones for him. Think Charlotte would consider trading a starting C for a third-string G?
    Why do the things that we treasure most, slip away in time
    Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
    Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?
    Till we fall away in our own darkness, a stranger to our own hearts
    And life itself, rushing over me
    Life itself, the wind in black elms,
    Life itself in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you

    Not sure if you are joking or not. But let's see what the regular season brings before we put him in the Shaq and Yao category of centers

    One other thing to keep in mind is that on a team that bad someone has to score

    Yeah, his name is Gerald Wallace. Primoz is the second option, and their leading scorer only because he a) is getting over 3 offensive boards per, and b) shooting 61%.

    None of our centers would be putting up those kinds of numbers. If Jeff Foster was the starting center for the bobcats, his numbers would be nowhere near.

    Pollard's beefier, and Jeff's got faster hands and feet, but Brezec has by far the best offensive game, and he's younger than Bender.

    The world needs ditch diggers, too. Ask Dale Davis.....

    Fine, you just wait for me to make a point of my current avatar, and you just have to throw a new one up for me, don't you?!

    Also, it'd be nice if the ridge in my forehead was a little higher, to cover up my receding hairline.

    Boy, I sure hope those shoes don't wear out in 8 minutes, like JO's did last night.

    1. If you tie them, you'll cover up the JO7 logo.......

    2. At least as of the night of the scrimmage he wasn't wearing the new model........

    If I were 7'13", I'd put up big number too.

    Good for him. Unless the 'Cats win a bunch, or beat the Pacers this year-then, I'll hate him

    Don't worry everyone, David Harrison will fill his shoes this season-or should I say his seat?

    Who would we have not protected in order to protect Primoz? I don't think it was that big of a loss.

    Agrees Also I would hope since he is playing more mins than he ever did with the Pacers he would get to score a few points , I think it was clear PB was never gonna get those kinda minutes being a Pacer.

    What about Reggie? Or Croshere?

    The theory thrown around was that their contracts were too high for them to be picked up.

    Croshere was left unprotected.

    Protecting Reggie would have been easy. All Donnie had to do is make this an option year. We (well, me anyway) were clamoring for this during Reggie's contract negotiations. We all knew the expansion draft was coming... a little planning would have solved that problem.

    Besides, we all know they wouldn't have touched Reggie with a 10-foot pole. You think they'd take that much salary? No way.

    We protected our dime-per-dozen undersized but athletic third string SG.

    Ehh, I don't have a problem with protecting Freddy. I like him and think he'll be a solid combo guard for us. Besides, after winning the dunk competition, he'd be gone for sure.

    Instead, we protected the guy that SHOULD be playing third string.
