It was reported that Dunleavy was a team cancer, there is a reason why he has issues with Tyler and others anytime we play the Bucks.
Suckleavy sucked here anyway so let's stop acting like he was a great player.

P. george: 6-15
D. West: 5-14
R. Hibbert: 4-10
L. Stephenson: 1-5
Combined 16-44 36% shooting from our starters.
Hill played bad, but so did EVERYONE else in the starting line-up. I was more angry that PG didn't score more simply because he had the biggest mismatch on the floor with Dunleavy guarding him most of the 2nd half.
He was the best player on the team one year. So to suggest he sucked here is just wrong, by any measure. He got injured, the team moved in a different direction, but he hardly sucked.
He did average 19.1 points per game in 2008. He played in all 82 games, shot 48% from the field 4.2% from 3, 3.5 assists per game, 5 rebounds per game. He was really good that year and in that one year, IMO he was better than Granger in that one year

I was talking to a co-worker of mine from Cleveland. We were talking about Pacers and the Cavs. I told him that the Pacers should be better because they improved the bench. He says, "Really? Who'd they get?". I told him they got Mahinmi, Augustin, and Green.
The look on his face was incredulous. His response - "And you think that's a better bench?"
PG did not look all there to me last night... I don't know if he was worn down or what... But his shots just did not look crisp to me... I thought he might go off for us in the final minutes after that mean in traffic slam... But immediately afterwards his shot still looked out of sorts...
Nothing in life worth having comes easy.
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!
At least he wasn't settling for a 3 on that play. Think positive...
I'm not thrilled with Young's recent play either. Besides the occasional good play he's been pretty bad the last couple weeks defensively. We could definitely use some help on the wing.
I remember Dunleavy being critical of his teammates because they were doing what they weren't supposed to be doing. Like being in the correct spot defensively or knowing the plays offensively. If that makes him a negative person in the locker room, I guess I can live with that.
Doesn't matter now, he's been gone for almost two years.
I will argue that he played pretty well here before his injuries. And he was effective last night

As far as how he played as a Pacer, he played ok some of the time, he played great very little of the time (but he had a few amazing games), and he played awful or was injured the majority of his time here.
Dunleavy's play is just another argument for the importance of Danny in the Pacer's scheme of things. It seems to me at least Dunleavy would last about a quarter and a half if Danny had played. Or however long it took Danny to foul him out in the post. This game was just another example of the importance of Danny's skill set to the Pacer's play.
We shouldn't have to ask our 6'9 wing who needs to be a bigger option offensively; to try nd shut down a lil guard like Jennings. For 40 Mil, Hill can't struggle against guys like that imo

It's no coincidence that he had a great game in OKC when he was posting up for the majority of the time.
Re-read! I said spacing AFTER puncuation.
You aren't the 1st on a forum to run everything together. If that's your lazy calling card, so be it. I just don't see why you would make it difficult for others to read.
Your absolutely right, it's my problem, but its one that I can very easily rectify by NOT reading your posts in that type of a format. Your choice.
Now, that may just be that I missed it due to the inability of the forum search to give anything but entire threads as search results, but I'd appreciate a pointer to the specific quotes. And tweets about guys having words on the floor don't count as confirmation that guys hate each other or are cancers.
