This team gives us no reason to be anything but positive. At the very least, Danny Granger will be better than DJ/Green. Which improves are team. And our team is 3 games out of first place while playing more away games than anyone.
I think Paul will be fine either way & I truly believe that Danny & Paul can play together with no problem. But Lance is a concern for me.
In fact, a trade involving Granger would disrupt chemistry much more thank bringing Granger back in to the fold. I am way more concerned with Danny's knee than him disrupting chemistry.
We are not the most talented, but we are the best TEAM
don't forget the Pacers could go small in stretches against certain teams aswell: Hill, Lance, PG, Danny, West/Roy. A lot of flexibility. He could also take a few of Tylers minutes in the playoffs, strengthening the second unit. Remember the unit that always lost a LOT of points when they were brought in? The unit that now also has a legit athletic, tall C in Ian aswell. Pacers will be tougher this year, no question.

Paul George = star
I believe that Paul George is a star in this league with his offensive and defensive productions, and apparently LeBron James agrees with me, he said himself Paul is a star

The Lakers, Heat, Knicks, and Thunder are all EASILY more talented than the Pacers. And that's just off the top of my head.
"Derek Fisher will prove to be a much better NBA head coach than Steve Kerr."
"The Houston Texans will forever regret it if they do not take Johnny Manziel with the No. 1 overall pick. He will haunt them."
"You bet I'd take Tebow late in games over ARodg."
"Manti Te'o: the next Ray Lewis."
As for the matchup vs the bulls here is how I see it: (assuming Granger starts at SF)
The starting line-up's are actually pretty close IMO, but what will really kill us is their bench compared to ours. Ours will get a lift with Stephenson playing with them, but Chicago's bench is still lethal. Nate Robinson, Beleneli, Gibson... They're definitely still a better team. Would be an interesting series to say the least.
