    If it's the Bulls in the 90's I want Steve Kerr. If it's the Pacers in 90's I want Reggie Miller. If it's the Lakers early in the last decade I want Robert Horry. If it's Miami I want Ray Allen. If it's OKC I want Kevin Durant.

    Do we see a trend? Yeah I always want the best shooters to take the shot. Pretty simple concept. I'd probably set up a play that'd help the best shooters get open. That's how you play the game if you're smart.

    So obviously for the Pacers I want Danny or Paul to shoot since they're easily the best shooters.

    West played really well towards the end of the season and in the playoffs. Given the very limited training camp, it seems that he just needed to fully rehabilitate from the surgery. Im really happy with the West signing

    Depends on whose shot is falling at the moment.

    I really WANT Paul George to have the stuff for that moment. If I'm Vogel, and this situation presents itself mid-season, I think Paul George should get a chance.

    If it's late in the season or in the post-season, I'd be comfortable with DWest getting the ball and making a move IF there's time on the clock. He's hard to stop and his veteran savvy is something I trust. Danny has, at times, shown the ability to take and make the big shot, so if it's got to be quick, I wouldn't mind giving him the chance.

    But, if I'm drawing up the play, I want Roy to get the ball, draw the defense, and kick it to George Hill. He's got ice in his veins and ultimate confidence in that situation.

    It depends.

    In theory, I think Granger has the best range and has proven to be pretty clutch. But whenever we're at the half court or inbound play, he just can't get open. I don't know why, maybe our plays suck, maybe the teammates don't execute the plays well, maybe he's not good at freeing himself. But bottom line, I don't think Granger is the type of player who gets the ball with 5 seconds left and gives you a game winner. Or maybe he is, but not for us.

    So, based on our games this year, I'd say West should get the ball. He's good at getting position. He's good at posting up (He has a crazy post up move where he dribbles low and quick and just goes inside easily). He has good faders, good mid range.

    Could also be Paul George. I'm no George fanboy, but how many times did he score when the shot clock was just about to expire? I can't be the only one who watched all his crazy attempts go in.

    Probably Danny followed closely by DWest.

    That's ridiculous. ESPN told me the best player on the team is supposed to take the shot.

    It all depends on the score for me. If we are 1 or 2 points down I like DW, or Roy. If we are down by 3 points I would say Danny, Hill or PG.

    The logical answer's whomever's open.

    The emotional answer is Roy. Earn that contract.

    If it is after a timeout, have someone throw it at Air Mahinmi for the dunk.

    for 2 pts vs weaker inside presence - I'd go with Hibbert or West in the paint.
    for 2 pts vs stronger inside presence - I'd go with Granger on a 18' jumper.
    for 3 pts i'd go with Granger 1st option, Hill 2nd option.

    But it depends on time left on the clock and match ups. Match ups should be the strong point of the Pacers.

    Granger, only because he's the only current Pacer who has done it before to my knowledge.

    I question that, I wouldn't want West to launch a 3 to tie.
