    This does make me feel better, BUT Jeff gave his team 14 and 11 in Texas State, not 6 and 7. Plumlee is a really good rebounder. Yes, possibly better than Lou. I will chill for now that we have a guy I like in Orlando Johnson. I will pass judgement after watching this years summer league. This dude better own the glass in Orlando. Mainly due to the fact I view his skill set to that of a typical summer league hopeful.

    I was pretty pissed but whatever. All I know is Plumlee is a Pacer now and time to root for the guy. Do work! Prove me wrong.

    NBA.com makes him sound like Jeff Foster 2.0 here which if pans out this way I would happily used a 26th pick.

    NBA projection: Plumlee should be chosen in the second round. And if he gets a chance, heíll earn a roster spot and be a serviceable reserve big man for a decade.
    I like everyone was super pissed, but now am back down to majorly disappointed, but we should shove that aside and take it for what it is, and keep on pushing forward. This move makes it sound like we will get Roy back and the following isnt a bad team esp. in the east next year

    We should give Machado a chance also.

    Go watch a few other draft workouts. This guys actually has better feet and handles than many guys that play skill positions. Maybe we shouldn't judge by stats. I will officially give him a chance. Amazingly fluid movements for a guy with his size and strength. He could fit nicely as a backup, which is what he was drafted to be. I am much more comfortable after seeing this.

    A lot of people were highlighting the need for an athletic and "full-sized" frontcourt player. So, we drafted one. And now most people are disgusted.

    I guess that some people cannot be pleased no matter what one does.

    Anyway, I can understand why people are frustrated about this pick. I prefered Draymond Green because we need someone who can pass the ball. Also, the drafting of Plumlee probably means that Fesenko will not be resigned. And that would make me quite sad

    However, I don't find it fair to kill the guy before we even see him play. I don't think that judging someone prematurely make sense.

    Ultimately, I just wish that people would calm down.

    The pick was puzzling but if Plumlee puts in hard work then he's fine by me. I wish the 2 newest Pacers the best of luck. I'm actually starting to like Plumlee for some reason.

    Honestly, with the front office dysfunction and return of Walsh I've lost much interest in the team or next season these past few days. With a "meh" draft pick at #26 and no trading up I wasn't exactly excited for #26 anyway. But to see some players fall to us that might've had some risk attached, but with the potential of high reward, and yet pass on them for a pedestrian pick that in all likelihood could've been duplicated with a similar player thru the waiver wire... color me "blah".

    A little bit of analysis from ESPN:

    Part of what is driving the interest is Plumlee's physical abilities. He measured with a 41-inch vertical in the Minnesota workouts.

    I've been collecting pre-draft athletic testing numbers since 2001. The tallest player ever to hit 41 inches or higher was Jamario Moon (at 6-7 3/4). Plumlee measured 6-11 1/4 in Minnesota.

    The highest a player 6-11 or taller has ever jumped in the testing is 38 1/2 inches by Steven Hunter back in 2001.

    Clearly your vertical jump doesn't determine whether you'll be a great NBA player. But factor in Plumlee's size, NBA body and toughness on the boards and a number of GMs are convinced he could be an athletic rebounder and shot blocker off the bench for them in the mold of Jeff Foster.

    I dont think it has anything to do with this its the fact there were better players on the board when we had to draft

    thats why people are pissed off

    +1. It's not strange to assume we would have been able to pick Plumlee with that #36 we bought from the Kings.

    Most are upset about the pick, but at the end of the day I just want him to prove all of us wrong. That is the best we can hope for, and I'll embrace him if he does prove us wrong.

    Have we seen any of those better players play in the NBA? Are we sure that they are going to translate to the NBA? No. We're just making guesses. Making guesses is good as all people should be allowed to voice their opinions. But should we panic based on those guesses?

    Edit: To make my point perfectly clear. We cannot be sure which player turns out to be better. Tyler Hansbrough was amazing in college. He didn't translate that well in the NBA (I still like the guy, though). What we can be sure is what said player can offer to our team. Draymond Green would improve our horrible passing in the second unit. Personally, I'd prefer it. But that's just a matter of preference.

    Miles Plumlee is big and athletic. He'll be our defensive anchor in the second unit. If he can establish some post game and be a post option then all the better. I'm not ecstatic about the pick but I'm not going to jump off a bridge either. Give him time first.

    Isn't that all relative though? It seems that the FO wanted both and got them. How does it change the outcome? I'm not that angry that Plumlee will earn slightly more than Johnson because that is the only difference. Unless of course you are a strong advocate for Johnson earning more than Plums.

    The 41-inch vertical is impressive. How did it help him at Duke? <1 blocked shot per game from the best jumping C in a generation? Doesn't that indicate that athleticism does not equal results in a no-step high jump drill?

    If a shot goes up, who gets the rebound? That's the real world drill. I doubt our new "poor man's Granville Waiters" would get it, based upon what I have seen at Duke.

    I too wish the both of them the best of luck and hope they pan out, BUT I'm not NEARLY there with regards to liking the Plumlee pick. He seriously needs to prove something starting with Summerleague. I mean 6pts, 7rpg and almost no blocks for a 7ft player who was a senior and as a 24 year old? We will have to see, but I'm not going to be "happy" and fluffy with the pick now all of a sudden. He needs to prove me and a lot of people wrong and the sooner the better.

    I don't understand all of the Plumlee hate going on. We needed a big and Plumlee fit the bill perfectly. I think this kid will grow into a nice player for the second unit and expect him to have a descent career. Kid kind of reminds me of McBob's athletic ability with a better shot. I was puzzled as most of us were, but the guy is a Pacer now and we should embrace him. I don't know what everyone expected with the 26th pick, but a solid 2nd unit guy is a pretty good pick-up to me.
