    Gothic Ginobili Review:
    Small Market Mondays #1: D.J. Augustin's Revenge Game

    Come one, come all and welcome to Gothic Ginobili's first edition of Small Market
    Mondays! We know you must be sick of all the attention that small markets get from
    the lamestream media. That Ben Gordon trade saga seemed to last FOREVER, didn't
    it? But we know what side our bread is buttered on. At this point, we really don't
    have a choice -- we HAVE to jump on this bandwagon to get precious page views.

    To start this week's installment off, it's only right to begin with the biggest storyline
    of the week -- the DJ Augustin revenge game. Augustin famously did what many
    superstars of his caliber have been known to do and made the move from the record
    -breaking, title-holding Charlotte Bobcats to a smaller market in Indianapolis. When
    asked about if the Pacers thought the Bobcats were competition due to their record
    -breaking season last year, Pacers GM Kevin Pritchard had this to say: "Charlotte is
    defending nothing. That's in boxing, you give the belt back. They don't have this
    year's trophy."

    Meanwhile, Bobcats VP of basketball operations Rod Higgins confirmed what we all
    thought: Augustin understandably took less money in Indiana while giving up his
    starting role in Charlotte in order to play in a media market with 60,000 less people.
    As you must know by now due to the positively nauseating amount of coverage,
    Augustin went 1 for 7 from the field. In this writer's opinion, that underrates his game.
    It was absolutely one of the most efficient 1 for 7s this writer has ever seen. Every
    single one of his misses gave his teammates a great chance to hit the offensive glass
    as he intelligently took five threes knowing they'd result in long rebounds for his
    teammates. One would have to be delusional to think he was actually trying to make
    those shots and not displaying classic small market classiness by trying to make his
    teammates look good...CONTINUE READING AT GOTHIC GINOBILI



    48 Minutes of Hell Preview:
    Spurs vs. Pacers Give and Go Preview

    Apparently the Spurs have never started a season 4-0 in franchise history. Doesn’t
    matter if it was Tim Duncan, David Robinson or George Gervin suiting up, it’s never
    happened. Considering how successful this franchise has been for its entire history,
    this is baffling to me. Strange but true.

    San Antonio goes into Monday night’s game against the Indiana Pacers with as good
    a shot as they’ve ever had at going undefeated through its first four games. Everyone
    is healthy and they’re at home with at least one day of rest. The Pacers, meanwhile,
    come in to the Alamo City missing arguably their top offensive player (Danny Granger).

    To preview the night’s action, Jared Wade of Pacers blog 8 Points, 9 Seconds and I
    chatted about all things Spurs-Pacers. Well, maybe not all things, but as many things
    as we could squeeze in.

    Andrew McNeill, 48 Minutes of Hell: Considering the Pacers were oh-so-close to
    taking down the Heat in last year’s playoffs, where are they at to start this season?

    Jared Wade, 8 Points, 9 Seconds: Their offseason consisted of retaining their key
    free agents (Roy Hibbert and George Hill) and retooling the bench. There was no
    reason to think it was a big upgrade, but with guys like Gerald Green and Ian
    Mahinmi, there is more potential upside. Still, I don’t think many people would
    say they made any major improvements, so the consensus agrees that anything
    more than making it to the Eastern Conference Finals is probably a pipe dream
    — especially if Danny Granger’s knee issue lingers all season.

    AM: What’s the latest on Granger? Are things looking bleak?

    JW: As of now, we really don’t know. The doctors are still looking at photos and
    checking out his sore left knee. He originally hurt it in the Miami series and
    aggravated it in the preseason. I’m far from a doctor so can’t really offer any
    prognosis. But I can say this confidently: things look very bleak for Indiana’s
    offense if Granger misses significant time. They barely edged Toronto in their
    opener (which took a Herculean effort from David West), lost to Charlotte while
    showing a complete inability to score, and needed two overtimes to beat the
    lowly Kings. Yeah, the offense without the captain has not run smoothly.

    AM: What about Paul George? I feel like all I’ve been hearing regarding the Pacers
    in the offseason and preseason is how good George will be. Is this just hype or is
    he going to be a legitimate star?

    JW: “Legitimate star” may be a reach but he definitely could get there. Regardless,
    he already very solid on both ends of the court and has the potential to be one of the
    very best...CONTINUE READING AT 48 MINUTES OF HELL

    Lance guarding Ginobili should be interesting.

    Looks like Sam Young will get the start tonight.

    Sam Young will start for Pacers tonight. Gerald Green will come off the bench.

    ^^ good on frank for finally seeing the light

    Young is better with the starting unit than Green
    Counting down the days untill DJ Augustin's contract expires.

    I think Young starting is the right way. The focus for the starters scoring should fall to Hibbs, West, PG and Hill. Young just needs to provide solid D.

    Hopefully the bench will be stronger with Green on it now.

    Let's minimize TOs, Box out and hit FTs.
    Lance + Starting SG = Awesome

    Now really free Lance!

    Is it bizarre to anyone else that Green played by far his best 24 minutes of the season aaginst the Kings and then couldn't get on the floor and crunch time and gets hooked from the starting lineup in the next game?

    This whole season has been bizzare thus far.

    No really, Green should be better off the bench.

    If it was in a vacuum yes, but it was because Lance played better with the starters than Green did.

    I think they are just trying to keep the two units together. The second unit that they wanted to start the season with will get to play together tonight.

    I don't disagree, I just don't understand why it suddenly happened right as he was playing well? Why not just do it after game 1?

    Ok, the first three games, when League Pass blacked me out? I wasn't pleased, but understood that there was a conflict due to Fox Sports South.

    Now, I'm still blacked out. This is SO stupid. I've been in a customer chat for 15 minutes, waiting for an agent to show up. Get a grip, NBA.
    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!
