    Default Check out Paul George!

    I know there has been a thread on this before, but I just saw this picture on the star web site. Check out how tall PG looks. He looks taller than West for sure.

    That is a long starting lineup. Well, minus DC of course.

    So the 2cd. biggest guy in our starting lineup is our shooting guard.
    I wish West were 3 inches taller and played more of a post game. We'd dominate on the boards. Maybe George can pick up the slack some, otherwise we'll be in the bottom 15 for rebounding.

    We were a top 5 rebounding team last year....If David West was 3 inches taller, he'd be 7 feet tall.

    Teams better take note and watch out for this team. Paul's height is a major advantage and still guard smaller wings and guards.

    That's a good picture too. I wish it was centered and they were looking at the camera.

    Those guys rep those unis very well.

    Happy to have them on this team. Looking forward to a great season.

    Height has almost nothing to do with being a good rebounder...

    I think PG's weight gain is more impressive than growing one extra inch tall. He's starting to grow into his body. He could get into the lane, but had troubles finishing. The extra weight will help him more than his height. He'll be able to hold his path much better.

    Do you think he looks 6'9" in that photo? He may be sloutching but he looks to be 2-3 icnhes shorter then George. We'll be a worse rebounding team with West. He played some heavy minutes to get just over 7 boards for the last to years. I'm not slamming on the guy, it will be nice to have the second scoring threat, he's simply small and a poor rebounder for his position.

    David is 6'9, Danny is rounded up to be 6'9, and Paul looks 6'10.

    They won't change what's recorded on the roster though. Height/weight is never exact anyway unless it changes a lot.

    It's not really a big deal in their cases..

    From the angle that photo is taken, West is not anywhere as close to the camera as George. Yes, Paul is taller, but West said as much 6'10" vs. 6'9".

    West is a plenty good rebounder especially when you account for a fact that this is a team with guys who should be above average rebounders at other positions. The team already proved they are a great rebounding team last year, and unless you think McRoberts to West is that big of a dropoff (which I think at worst is a wash and more likely West is actually the superior rebounder) then there is no reason to be concerned about our rebounding this year.

    You all realize that the camera angle of that shot skews perspective, right? West looks an inch or two taller than Granger in that picture, because he's closer to the camera. Looking at this picture from straight on, Granger looks an inch or two taller than West:

    I agree with this, but I think Granger only looks taller in this because his hair.. And West has a more Chill stance going on where danny is standing tall.

    I would say PG is taller than them tho anyways..

    People on here have been thinking too much about this lately.

    Who cares?

    They know their positions/roles and just hope we do well this season.

    I have so much faith in PG, this HAS to be a break out year for him. He looks like a monster right now, especially at the 2. Hes going to be a problem fot a lot of NBA teams this year. I give it 2 years before he is the new face of the Pacers franchise

    I love watching Roy come out during the starting lineups always. Every time he stands up and lifts his hands up in the air I am continually amazed at his size. It never fails. He's just ....... plain....... BIG.

    Good to see West has a large wingspan.. That definitely helps for a player that seems short..

    Add an inch to that for PG from growing and thats awesome..... We care about it because it creates that little bit more of a mismatch and advantage for Paul.

    I'm not sure where you're getting top 5 in rebounding last year, and I don't see any of our players being above average for their position in that category other then George.
    According to Hollinger we were 15th. in rebounding last year at 50.2.
    You're probably right about West comparing to McBob in rebounding but I think West will play more minutes and he's a below average rebounder for a PF. In the end if West gets 35 minutes and playing down through the rotation Hans, and Foster play less then last year, then I think we'll drop to the bottom half of the league in rebounding.
    Again, I'm not slamming on West and I think we'll be a better team with him but we would have been better off with a bigger more traditional pf to play next to Roy. Bird did the best he could and overall it was a good move.

    I wish there was a way to check how many rebounds a player got versus his competition... I would be willing to bet West is not a below average rebounder.. He played with Tyson Chandler who is a beastly 7'1 defensive, rebounding machine.. I don't think many people would get a lot of rebounds playing next to someone like him.
