    Default Croshere, Thomas, and Carlisle

    Here's what I want to know.

    You guys remember the quote from Bird about how Thomas was wrecking Croshere's career?

    You think Bird has changed his mind yet?

    It's been said before, but now that Bender's back, imagine how few minutes Croshere would be getting under Carlisle if we had Big Bad Brad instead of Scot Pollard.
    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!

    I find it pretty damn funny whenever I hear someone say how much better Austin's playing under Carlisle, and he's showing Isiah up with his play (last said by Bill Walton in the Dallas game, I believe.)

    Austin 02-03/03-04

    MPG 12.9/12.6
    FG% .411/.397
    3P% .391/.388
    FT% .815/.842
    RPG 3.20/3.10
    APG 1.1/0.4
    SPG 0.12/0.33
    BPG 0.27/0.26
    TO 0.57/0.67
    PF 1.00/1.50
    PPG 5.1/5.1

    Well the stats lie a bit. They leave out that he rarely played at all. The DNP-CD's are not mentioned.

    Up until the last two games he has played in pretty much every single game. I dont know why he didnt play in the Nets game I thought there werestreached where he could help. But it may be that they are "showcasing" Pollard for a trade.

    If Brad Miller were here, Cro's playing pattern this year would be much like last year. Plus Cro was less healthy last year as I remember.

    The Zeke was unfair to Cro buzz is bogus.

    well, if the issue now is that cro wasn't getting minutes under isiah, let's check totals instead of game averages then:

    Austin 02-03/03-04

    minutes 633/493
    rebounds 155/120
    assists 56/15
    steals 6/13
    blocks 13/10
    turnovers 28/26
    fouls 48/57
    points 252/198

    if we project the 03-04 numbers (double them since we're halfway), then cro will be on track to exceed his 02-03 totals in all categories except assists.

    so i guess that argument is valid. actually, i think cro's per 48 minute numbers are pretty good, and that applies to the 02-03 cro too, since the numbers are identical.
