First let me say hi to Hicks Able Peck KStat and my good friend from down the road Haywoode nice to see you all!!
OK So after we drafted Hansbrough I pretty much lost all hope that the Pacers were ever going to interest me again. I was pretty excited by Hibbert but at that point he was still only seeing playing time from the end of the bench. Then we go and draft this big slug and I just said fine, if Larry is going to just draft big dumb clumsy white guys then I am not watching this crap.
You old timers who know who I am are going to laugh when you find out why I started watching again. I had read that the player that only I seemed to like was in the D league and was going to be playing in Fort Wayne against the Mad Ants (love that team name) and I got all excited and it started making me think about the Pacers again.
Of course he never actually came to Fort Wayne because he got picked up by an NBA team so I did not get to watch him play, but I watched the Pacers opener and then watched the next one and man I am kicking myself for not watching Hibbert this last couple of years. I dont yet have the same reverence for him as say the Great Dale Davis but I am sure warming up to him.
on the other players I still hate Hansbrough I am liking Collison so far, and Lance Stephenson is showing enough promise last night to make me want to keep watching. Thats enough to keep me interested as long as Hansbrough does not get the starting job.
