    Danny, right behind West unless Roy can make a move.

    Paul's going to be #1 this season.

    I just don't see Danny stepping aside to let that happen. It needs to happen and is likely the only way the Pacers will win a championship any time soon, but I don't see Danny giving up that role.

    I don't think he has to step aside. I think Paul will be playing better defense and getting enough scoring chances to justify his minutes and role. Then as his confidence grows he'll start scoring more consistently and this will finally lead to Vogel centering more around him.

    Honestly they did a good job of moving the offense away from just Danny for much of Vogel's time with the playoffs being more of the exception.

    But Paul is going to give SGs fits with his size and has a stride that will have him out in breaks getting the cheap stuff. To me it just seems like you can see this coming a mile away based on what he was last year and how he changed and developed.


    The offense is going to work mostly off of Roy and West anyway, not Danny. Danny's points should come more on kick outs from the low post and on double-down lane cuts.


    Sheesh, this team actually overwhelms me when you think about the high/low post of Roy and West, either of which can work either post fairly well (Roy is a good, though sometimes risky passer). Then you have DCs speed or Hill's total game. It's like Danny and Paul are almost gravy on this.

    Tyler obviously can be a big time PnPop scorer off the bench when needed.

    Funny to think that, at this point in the season, the two guys we were assuming would be numbers one and two, are more like four and five. As of right now I'd say that Hibbert, Hill, and Hansbrough have been our best players.

    Thus my post that we shouldn't just assume Danny and even West are our #1 and #2 players. But of course, PD members attacked that statement.

    Don't forget Collison. Paul G still up and down.

    Roy has pretty clearly been our best player. Danny and West have a chance to surpass him if they play up to their past levels, but Roy is no joke this year, and has been playing like an all-star even though he doesn't get the touches some other guys get.

    Hibbert is our best, and #2 through #7 doesn't have a set ranking IMO. Sometimes Hill will be the best, other times it'll be George, sometimes Granger, sometimes West or Hansbrough, and last night it was Collison.

    Right now it's George Hill and it's not even close. He's a 2 way player who's been a major contributor on an excellent basketball team for his entire career. Other guys have more long-term potential, but none of them have even come close to putting it together like Hill has at this point.

    My top 3 players in terms of importance:
    1 - Hibbert
    2 - West
    3 - Hill

    No slight to Granger or anyone else for that matter. This team is so balanced it could be a seven-way tie for best player. These are the "glue" guys (with Tyler coming in 4th). Take any of them and it's a major downgrade in terms of grit, intensity, physical & mental toughness. In other words, these guys, to me, are the SOUL of the team.
