    Read all the comments.. THEN watched the video. I'm drooling over my keyboard right now.
    Nay, drooling isn't the correct term. Salivating more like.

    His knee would worry me in a regular, regular season. I'm still very wary about it holding up through this grueling schedule.

    That being said I'm ready to watch this TEAM do some things this year. We've been in line for 5 years.. Got our personal chocolate milk carton against the Bulls.. Time to eat chums.. What's on the menu? Looks like.. Crow.

    I think his comments on DC were kind of interesting, it will be interesting to see what his presence does for him.
    Yeah, interesting.

    The only thing he really said is that Collison is "fast."

    West is clearly a sharp guy, a diplomat, knows exactly how to handle himself in these interviews. I'm totally impressed.

    That said, reading between the lines, I'm more interested in what he didn't say about Collison.

    That, my friends, is what a grown-*** man sounds like. Its good to have one of those as one of your best players.

    Having a player acknowledge what he is, and then to use the phrase he used "maximize those talents," is quite refreshing. And I hope that Conrad meant, when he called him a "No **** taking player" that he also delivers that message to his teammates.

    Nene would have been nice to have, because of his versatility and toughness, but I West is going to make the other players around him better. If Roy/DC/PG, I'll leave out GH due to him being an ex-Spur and having this message beat into his head for 4 solid years, can take that next step it's going to help the Pacers in the long term future a lot more than Nene ever would have.

    If the game starts to slow down for Roy, and DC gets more consistancy, then it will really change the dynamic of the team, IMHO.

    It just feels good, for once, to have a player that chose us. When you hear him talk positive about the team, it's not forced. He picked this squad because he really believes those reasons, and you can see it in his demeanour.


    I'm so ready for this season to start!!

    Nene isn't a pick and roll guy though. He's a straight up post player.

    We had to have someone who can run the pick and roll with Collison, or why get Collison?

    I'm strongly against using last year as a barometer for where Collison is at considering he didn't have anyone to pick with. Chris Paul would have had a hard time on our team as well...

    Really love hearing how DC was recruiting him.

    Err, you had me until here.

    CP3 can do EVERYTHING. He wouldn't have a hard time with the 08-09 Indiana Hoosiers.

    I think you're reading too much into it. He called into the station today and was talking about how DC called him and how excited DC was that he was here. Seemed pretty excited.

    Oh man, there are so many Media Day Crate Interviews. Now I am sitting here watching them all on my extended work break. Working from home is bad sometimes.

    Michael Pina, Red94: "There are so many different ways the Pacers can beat you. They have an All-Star scoring threat, imposing figures on the front line, steady point guard play, and most importantly, a defense that'll choke the life out of just about every offense that crosses its path."

    Please don't call me racist or gay..

    but..

    Like Conrad said, this guy is in a handful of people who give me a warm fuzzy feeling. Laid back assurance, with confidence, and lack of an ego. I always liked Denzel for that. As a person, he's perfect for the team. Basketball mind state is perfect for the team. I'm not sure I'm signing those two ingredients off as the perfect recipe for the team yet. We need to see him on the court.

    But I won't root against him. Too nice and genuine of a person.

    The more I see of DW the more I like this guy. Did anyone else notice them giant hands that he has. When shook hands with the Pacers staff it looked like a bear paw holding a cubs paw. I like his personality and the way he spoke about our youngsters and his desire to be a mentor or so to say with them.
