    Default Cool Indy Cornrows article on Granger's "Old Man" game.

    Check it here:

    My favorite?

    "I want to play for a long time, so as a player I have to find ways to get easy buckets with post-ups or fade-aways," Granger said recently. "So it has been a plan, something I've worked on over the past couple of summers and I've gotten pretty good at it and I'm getting better too."

    ...


    "I'm not comfortable because I can jump higher than anyone," Granger explained. "Instead it's head fakes, up-and-unders and fade always or use a shoulder to get some more space and get the shot off. I've been working on that game constantly."
    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!

    It might be because he is a superstar in this city and nowhere else, but regardless I love that he wants to stay here.

    Bird was the master of the step back and fadeaway jumper. Danny would do well to emulate that type game.

    I love it too, i'm not so sure about being a star here and nowhere else. Danny is really underrated nationally, if he were playing for a big market he'd get alot more respect and recognition, but I love him for wanting to be here in spite of that, even if he can probably get paid a bit more out of loyalty anyhow.

    He has been forced into this due to his plantar fascia issues. He simply does not have the explosiveness he once had.

    That said, massive kudos are in order for him due to his ability to adapt to his limitations.
