    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?

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Isn't he the same player as Josh Mcroberts just older than Mcroberts was as a rookie?

    Oh and he averaged considerably less points and rebounds...

    I would have gone for PJ3 but again I dedicated about 30 minutes of my life reading up on this draft so what do I know...

    I suppose that'd make it worth it.

    How disappointing is the pick? I had sold half of my Colts season ticket to my brother-in-law and was considering selling the other half so I can finally renew my Pacers season ticket. Now, I'm probably looking at an 11-game mini-plan at most, if that. Hey Larry, thanks for screwing us on your way our the door. What a waste of my night. Again.

    Is Plumlee even better than Kyrylo?

    So did we just draft Roy's backup to come in for 15 minutes a game? Is that what we did here? Meh.

    A taller but far, far less talented version of Josh McRoberts

    and I am no Josh fanboy

    The absolute worst pick of the 1st round
    The poster "pacertom" since this forum began (and before!). I changed my name here to "Slick Pinkham" in honor of the imaginary player That Bobby "Slick" Leonard picked late in the 1971 ABA draft (true story!)

    Pacers will take the best player available, my ***. Any 2nd rounder will be better than Plumlee.
