    Default Let's talk about Miles Plumlee

    I watched him play a lot during his college career. I honestly don't understand this pick. He had a mediocre college career. He was constantly yanked in and out of the Duke starting lineup along with Mason Plumlee and Ryan Kelly. He doesn't have much offense. He can't hit jumpshots. He doesn't have the size to guard NBA centers, so I guess he's going to the end of the PF depth chart. His best game of the past season was on senior night, where he played well in the first half while his team got blown out by UNC in a game that decided the ACC regular season.

    Here is an awesome pic of how he attempted the patented Duke flop to take a charge, but instead was called for a foul while John Henson put his junk on his shoulder.




    Can ANYONE explain why a 1st round draft pick was used on Miles Plumlee? Did the Pacers think they were drafting Mason Plumlee?

    First of all let's see him play with the Pacers before throwing him under the bus. Bird and Vogel see something there and they know the team better than anyone.

    Bird says he defends the pick and roll very well and if anyone watched the Pacers last year every team pick and rolled the living s*** out of us because Roy moves laterally like the Jolly Green Giant.

    If he can help to stop us from getting abused on the one play teams killed us with consistently he is well worth the pick.

    Below are the career numbers of the player many consider to be one of the best young back up big men in the league.

    The team with the best record in the league is planning on resigning him this year and several teams will have interest in signing him to an offer sheet.

    As you can see if you are judging him by his stats many on this board would be upset if the Pacers had taken him with the 26th pick

    He was a 2nd round pick and those are not college stats from a senior. I fail to see the relevance.

    College stats are irrelavant. Those are his NBA stats and that is his track record. The point that you missed was his stats suck if that is all you look at. He is about to have several NBA teams offer him several million dollars including the team with the best record in the league.

    As a backup center in the NBA obviously people who are paid to make the decisions think there is high value in things other than stats so if you are whining about the Plumlee pick because of his stats then you disagree with many NBA GM's who get paid to evaluate players.

    Larry Bird is a genius, I think I understand his though process on this:

    Tyler Hansbrough is going to see a Blue Devil trying to guard him and see red. Tyler Hansbrough is going to make Plumlee look like a 5 year old every single day in practice. THEN Tyler Hansbrough is going to play more confident in real games because he is playing great in practice.

    Plumlee is nothing more than a toy for Tyler.

    I suppose that'd make it worth it.

    Apparently, it's because he's a 7 foot 250 lb guy with a 40 inch vertical.

    Did we just draft a taller Joe Alexander? Workout warrior FTW. I guess we wanted a project after all.

    You know I kept wishing that we'd draft an athletic big, and now we did Be careful what you wish for indeed.

    Plumlee is 23 years old and averaged 6 and 7 last year. How that's a better pick than Perry Jones is bewildering.

    However...

    His athleticism for being a 7 footer is impressive and he could end up having a better NBA career than he did in college. He is the anti-Tyler Hansbrough in the sense that his size and athleticism make him a better energy big man off the bench than Tyler ever could be. I wouldn't be surprised if this ends up working out well for us, but I really do think PG3 is going to be pretty good.

    Pass the bottle man. I'll drink to that. I can't remember a bust pick being so obvious.

    Hansbrough, Plumlee and Hayward if he could have in 2010 ... Maybe Jordans not the worst in picking in the draft.

    Miles can't shoot. He has terrible footwork. He has trouble catching the ball cleanly. When he got to the FT line, he shot 63%. He only averaged 20 minutes a game his senior year.

    The only things he has in common with Hansbrough are being white and being strong.

    My only reasoning behind this pick is that Bird thinks this guy is TOUGH. After calling us "soft" in the Heat series maybe he thought this was a good way of bringing an edge to this team without fear of off the court issues coming along with it.

    Gonna take a break now, my arms getting tired from reaching

    I'm livid and sick at the same time. I'm more PO'd at Bird for this choice than I was with him picking Lance Stephenson. Thanks Bird for your parting gift to the Pacers. Plumlee makes Lou look like Allstar material. Just smh in absolute disgust.

    Go ahead and keep minimizing this craptastic pick, PD faithful. But the bottom line is Larry Bird fell in love with yet another non-athletic, over-his-head white guy. This pick is in the Isiah Thomas/Knicks GM zip code of incompetence.
