    If Danny is back to a physical level of his Most Improved Player sesaon, any notion of trading him is ridiculous and deserves flaming.
    If he's back to last year's level?

    Unfortunately, my guess is that there is at least a chance that Granger may primarily be a "stretch 4" who is a defensive liability at this point, and the Pacers cannot afford to pay a "stretch 4" who is a defensive liability what Granger is being paid. Indiana is not a large market, and unless he can return to being a much quicker and more explosive player with better lateral movement, the Pacers cannot afford to carry his contract, especially when he is not being relied on this season.
    Excuse me but how is this a possibility? Did he have an ACL injury? Did he break his leg? Nothing of that happened.

    From what we know it's patellar tendonosis. Here's yet another article about it -> http://www.beginnertriathlete.com/cm...articleid=1393

    It's not a bad enough injury to make someone change their whole playstyle. It cannot cripple a player's career.

    It's mostly a condition. Athletes should be careful when they have this condition and they shouldn't play through pain as it could lead to a more significant injury.

    But it isn't enough to turn Danny Granger into a "stretch 4". It isn't enough to turn him into DeJuan Blair. He still has all of his ACLs. His knees are not shot. They are just strained and could use the rest.

    Therefore, we have no reason to assume that he will become a stretch 4 that is a defensive liability. Is there a chance? Sure. There's a chance for everything. But I wouldn't bet on it.

    Also, in my opinion, Davis could be better than Tyler given an opportunity to play with a better team with better coaching.
    Glen Davis is better than Tyler at this point. There is one thing that Tyler is doing better. That's going to the line. In order to reap the benefits of going to the line a player has to play big minutes. And Tyler cannot play big minutes until he gets his jump shot back.
