    The players they brought here are the equivalent of Diener, Kareem Rush and Solomon Jones but way more expensive.

    DJ=Diener
    Green= Kareem Rush
    Ian= Solomon Jones
    If Hibbert doesn't start playing better his contract will = Troy Murphy/Mike Dunleavy.

    I'm ready to see Orlando Johnson and Miles Plumlee get minutes. Why not, right? Orlando Johnson is probably as effective as Green or Young, and Plumlee as useful as Mahinmi.
    Sign me in and I don't even like either player.

    Second home game, or I'd take the under. However, I think people are probably already locked in, so we'll likely get our 14k like usual.

    Can someone explain to me why our best defender, Roy, was not in to defend the last play?
    in fairness, he has a history of getting burned on D, especially on P & R situations. He's been taken out on last second plays in the past (including playoffs) and it has tended to work. That said, max contract guy who is (supposed to be) good at D, you gotta leave him in.

    Diener was much better than D.J. Augustin has been thus far.

    Augustin's the one I can't figure out more than anything. I'm not writing Green or Mahinmi off at all, but it's clear to everyone those were somewhat of gambles. Augustin was consistently solid in Charlotte from day one. It's like he literally forgot how to play.

    ew.

    that's like me on D sometimes when I accidentally get in a pick up game with actual athletes.

    That should not happen to an NBA defender.

    How can you be in the NBA and let something like this happen? this is the most crucial play of the game.

    Did TJ Ford forget how to play when he came to the Pacers?
    Did DC forget how to play when he came to the Pacers, only to suddenly remember again when joining the Mavs?

    Find the constant, and the problem starts to become clear.

    I am so furious over this game. We come back in the 4th and overcome all our stupid boneheaded plays to tie the game, and then we lose the game on a boneheaded play. At some point the coaching staff has to realize what type of players they actually have. Not what they project them to be.

    Again, think twice about bringing in players from a culture of losing. While giving up key players for nothing. Our offseason looks terrible. Though I don't regret paying Hill at all. He is a gamer. Hill is the heart of this team right now. Shame that his will to win is over shadowed by his teammates and coach's incompetence.

    The scariest thing is that Green is locked up for 3 years...

    Ironically for those of you watching last year TJ Ford was a great backup point guard for the Spurs and a key bench player until he got stepped on and his career ended. What a pity. I think had he been healthy the Spurs might have won the title last year, since they were one outside shooter who doesn't choke in the playoffs away from beating the Thunder and Heat.

    I'm starting to think theres something in the water here.

    Pick up Mickael Pietrus, Celtics PF last year. If they get him he's good for 9 Points a game, 3 boards, and shut down D.

    Not having granger really hurts Indiana. I'm sorry but not a single player on that team can do what granger does well.

    I'm not a big fan of any of their wings. I like George as a defender but he isn't in grangers league as a scorer.

    I think this team is Fine without collison. Without collison and granger...they take a step back. Just not enough skill on the perimeter.

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    As long as we aren't asking Ian to be an offensive threat in the post I think he will be fine. His length alone makes him a decent defender, now we just need to get the refs to stop calling fouls on him when he clearly gets all ball.

    Green could be a solid scorer off the bench, just don't ask him to do anything else. (i.e. inbound pass or play defense at the end of the game)

    Augustine.......let's go after a back-up PG who can at least defend next summer.
