    Somebody came up with a fake rumor with Hill+Granger going to Boston for Rondo, I'm really not sure why this rumor is been talk about so much, I've seen rumors by Yahoo that never got this much press.
    it gets worse. it's reached the team now.

    https://www.indystar.com/article/201...by-trade-rumor

    So as an Internet rumor circulated on Monday that mentioned Hill and Danny Granger in a trade proposal to Boston for All-Star point guard Rajon Rondo, Hill remained unaffected. Hill’s agent, Michael Whitaker, informed The Star that he has not been in contact with either team nor has he taken part in any trade talks involving his client this season.

    By Monday night, Hill had heard the rumor then shoved it to the back of his mind. “I don’t care nothing about that. If it happens, it happens. It’s the business and the only thing that I can control is what I can control and that’s to come out here and be the best teammate that I could possibly be and try to help this team win basketball games,” Hill said. “I just found out earlier today, so it’s something that I don’t really pay attention to. I kind of just saw it and let it go.” Indianapolis Star
    Awesome, so now Hill's got that in the back of his head. ****in internet. That trades not even friggin possible, the Celtics would literally have to double the outgoing salary.

    Miles had an excellent statline tonight. 17 points on 8/15 shooting (1/5 FTs, though), 20 rebounds, 2 blocks and 1 assist. Too bad that I missed the game

    Thankfully, I can watch the replays now

    Reggie's doing his weekly interviews on Dan Patrick again. He doesn't buy that Larry would give him competition in a 3 point contest today.

    Gerald Green says Hi 22 points, 7/13, 6/11 from downtown. The only time GG had 6 threes in a Pacers uniform, was that last game of the regular season against philly, which wouldn't affect our ranking, win or loss.

    As a Pacer and Miles Plumlee fan I can't help but think why did the Suns GM had to be one of the few believers in Miles? Why didn't read he more on Pacers digest
    but after almost 2 months of playing, it seems to me that both these guys have found themselves an offense (and 2 PGs) better suited to their strengths, so I'm very happy for them.

    Plumlee was a Bird pick. He was always a good pick. Some people on here just didn't like him because he wasn't special at Duke.

    Yeah, GG is playing well in Phoenix as well. I'm glad for him too. He is an excellent fit in Phoenix. He wasn't a great fit here because our offense was much slower and he benefit from a slower pace.

    However, I think that Miles would be a good fit here as well. He just seems like a flat out good player to me. He was good in both Summer Leagues. He is better offensively in Phoenix's pace since he can work endless PnRs with Bledsoe and Dragic but I think that he would be good here as well.

    Oh well. I love Scola so I'm very glad that the trade worked out the best for every party involved. I'm proud of them

    Also, the thing nobody mentions about young guys (though Miles is practically early middle aged by NBA age), but experience wise, PLAYERS GET BETTER. Miles kicking *** in Phoenix (and good on him for it) doesn't mean he didn't suck here, he absolutely did.

    It's like Jalen Rose says, sometimes guys just get drafted by the wrong team. I'm still really high on Anthony Bennett as a scoring 4, doesn't look like that's gonna happen in Cleveland. Hornacek's looking like a really good coach (good job letting him leave Utah), he knows his team's crazy young, so just keep it simple and run and pick and roll em to death and just let em play off instinct.

    If everyone would have known how well Green and Plum would do maybe we could have kept that pick!
    Oh well.
    Scola's been great for us. I have little doubt that, sitting deep on our bench, those guys would not have made this sort of improvement.
    It's been a really nice trade for all involved.

    Check out Boogie Cousins growing up

    http://www.news10.net/video/29678102...--Kings-Center

    and yes, that's ABSOLUTELY Cousins growing up and maturing. Dude's never had problems off the floor or anything, he's just been lazy and aloof when he's playing. He's not now, mostly, he's getting there.

    It's absolutely true that players get better. Miles obviously got better this summer. However, he didn't suck here. He just never got the chance to play. He played a total of 55 minutes. And he didn't look bad at all in those 55 minutes. He showed good rebounding and defensive insticts.

    Really? The games that I watched, he still seemed lazy, complaining a lot, giving up on plays. Guess I should watch him again then

    About Plumlee's previous season. I agree he didn't look good or ready to contribute last season. The combination of him improving his game (moves) and him getting to play PnR all the time is making the Miles Plumlee star shine very bright in Arizona

    We've heard a lot about Kobe because of his injury. We've heard a lot about Pierce and Garnett rotting away on that cesspool of a Nets team. But what about another champ from their generation who is in his 16th season and playing as if he is in his prime?

    - Dirk Nowitizki

    The Mavs got a big win in Houston last night with Dirk popping fadeaways as if he was playing the Heat in the 2011 Finals. This guy is 35 with a billion miles on him, yet is the 13th leading scorer in the league right now. He seems to be completely healed after that knee surgery last year. This is by far the best he has looked since Dallas won the championship. He is an immortal NBA legend and we should appreciate his greatness while he is still playing. The Dirk-Monta duo is a pretty lethal offensive threat and I think they could be a headache in the playoffs.

    Boogie probably complains less than Paul George, put it that way. You can rationalize that all you want, "stature" in the league and whatever, but it's pretty true from what I've seen. Boogie's a victim of the Kentucky narrative, I think that was at least somewhat of a reason Wiggins went to Kansas.

    I'll preface all of this by saying that I love Boogie Cousins.... but the guy is one of the worst complainers I've ever seen. Not quite Stephen Jackson levels, where he takes himself out of 10% of the plays because he won't stop barking at the refs, but it's pretty close. You can see in the quality of his play that he is easily flustered when the refs don't give him calls.

    Big difference with PG is that I feel like he plays really well when he gets pissed off. Boogie racks up technicals and flagrant fouls.
