    According to the stats linked, the franchise is coming up on win #2,000.

    edit: These stats didn't mean much in a vacuum, so I chose to see the Bulls all-time leaders. Deng has over 10,000 points and is like #6. Ben Gordon and Kirk Heinrich(!!!) are 9 & 10th with about 7,000 points. Heinrich is also their all-time leader in 3 pointers. Just odd.

    I'd really like to see Danny stay with us past this year and move up to #2. When I look at this list I feel like Danny is really underappreciated by the fan base as a whole just because he played on some bad teams. He never complained or demanded a trade during his prime like a lot of players would have. If anyone deserves a ring this year it's Danny.
    I can't relate to some of the disrespect he gets on here from some posters. I can't be a fan of the team and not have some degree of loyalty to a player like Danny.

    Well he officially passed Vern today in the first half.

    Next up is Big Mac, with the way he is playing at present I think he should be able to overtake McGinnis by about the end of March.

    Okay maybe that's a little rough, in theory he could get him vs. the Nuggets on Monday but I would not be surprised to see it be Wednesday vs. the Mavs.

    It's been a lot rougher than even I thought it would be and I thought it would be pretty rough.

    Yep, both. Oddly, he isn't the all-time leader in fouls. Rik Smits did some serious hacking to take that crown away from Reggie.

    Also, Troy Murphy and his penchant for pilfering rebounds from teammates paid off: He is the Pacers' all-time leader in Defensive Rebound %.
    Some very interesting stats on there.

    Free Throws
    1. Reggie Miller* 6237
    2. Freddie Lewis 2511
    3. Roger Brown* 2380
    4. Billy Knight 2295
    5. Rik Smits 2266
    6. Jermaine O'Neal 2258
    7. George McGinnis 2231
    8. Danny Granger 2139
    9. Vern Fleming 2026
    10. Mel Daniels* 1912

    How the heck is Freddie Lewis #2 for free throws man I wish I had seen those guys play.

    Wow, JOB ball focused so intensely on the 3 point shot that three guys who were here for a relatively short amount of time (Dun, Murph, Rush) were all able to creep into the Top 10 list of a 40+ year old franchise.

    Lol. Wow, why is Bird bringing in Bynum to replace the greatest defender in franchise history? I wonder where he ranks all time on the "personal fouls as a percentage of total points scored list?" With 128 fouls and 147 points this season, he is at 87%.

    I think it is more a product of the times than JOB. The numbers might be inflated a little, but overall the 3 is used a lot more now by everyone than it ever has been. Paul George didn't even have a full season with JOB and is already 5th with less than 4 years in the league. George Hill will be getting close to being on that list by the end of the season. Even Lance will most likely end up on that list within 5 years of first getting meaningful playing time.

    Danny passed George McGinnis tonight for # 6 in the all time scoring list. Next up is # 5 with Jermaine O'Neal which will probably be where he ends up being.

    It's bittersweet because I have no doubt that had he not had the last year and a half stolen by injuries that he would firmly and easily have established himself at the # 2 spot. But # 5 is very good and he has already passed some Pacers royalty.

    Congrats to Danny and thank you for the memory's.

    At the cost of Granger and Scola this off season?? At the cost of Roy the following season??

    You find a way to make it happen if you can reasonably do so... At any cost, you have to evaluate the picture as a whole... The more he costs, the more you have to consider alternative options...

    Danny Granger will always have a very special place in my memory of the Pacers. The one shining light in a very, very dark time. Fun to watch, easy to relate to, and when he was scoring well out of the post and with his 3 point jumper the year he averaged over 25 PPG he was a machine. I know we are probably watching the last 50-60 games of Danny on this team and that is very bittersweet for me. Hopefully we send him out the right way, what a great story that would be.

    Granger and Scola - Yes, hands down. Over Roy, you have an argument.

    And he has been a total pro the entire time he's been here. And he told Larry to draft PG, even knowing what that could mean for himself.

    He's certainly had some of the worst luck of any athlete that I've seen. His physical prime coincided with the likes of Murphy, Dunleavy, TJ Ford, and Jim O'Brien. Then when the team actually got really good, he suffered a brutal injury at a still relatively young age. It's definitely unfortunate. He was a MUCH NEEDED classy player after all of the a-holes that came through here in the mid 2000's. Always played hard, never did anything to embarrass the franchise, never criticized his garbage teammates, etc.

    An argument? If it is Roy or Lance you kick Lance's *** out of the house and say goodbye. With Paul and Lance you are just the Hawks 2.0. With Paul and Roy you are in serious competition for a championship.

    Nine effing points, NINE!!!!!

    Either way Danny ended up being the 6th all time leading scorer in franchise history. That's pretty good for a player picked 17th with virtually no fanfare. Can't live in the what if world but safe to say if he had never been injured that I believe he easily would have been the franchises second all time leading scorer.

    We are now going to begin the Paul George Count down and he is at 3868 and counting.

    Yeah, I think we'll re-sign Danny when the time is right so that he can retire a Pacer.
