    Hoop76:
    Tom Sunnergren: Michael Carter-Williams vs. the Rookie Wall

    The Wall is Winning

    At the start of their careers, some players storm out of the gates. Michael Carter-
    Williams roared out of them on a flaming chariot pulled by coked-up velociraptors.

    Oct. 30, it seemed a new star was born. In garnering 22 points, 12 assists, 9 steals,
    and 7 rebounds in the Sixers 114-110 upset of the twice-defending champs, MCW
    posted the second-highest assist total of a rookie NBA debut, the most steals, and
    became the first player of any experience level since 1985–and the third ever–to
    record a line of 22/12/9/7 or better.

    It was astonishing. And MCW, for an improbably long stretch, continued to astonish.

    He ran the floor like a manic gazelle, wearing opponents down with his relentlessness.
    His long arms were equally adept at disrupting opponents’ passing lanes as they were
    at dishing assists on the subsequent breaks. He struggled as shooter, sure, but his
    aggression and fearlessness suggested a killer instinct, the psyche of a superstar.
    Anything and everything seemed possible for him, his potential without discernible
    limit. An afterthought on draft night turned foundational piece–a 6’7 point guard who’s
    package of size, smarts, and athleticism was and is unparalleled at the position.

    The NBA took notice. He was named the league’s top rookie after November and
    January and won Player of the Week honors on Nov. 3–becoming the first rook since
    Shaq to do so. Carter-Williams was the Association’s “it” freshman, the consensus gem
    of the class, the reason Jrue Holiday hadn’t been forgotten as much as he’d been wiped,
    Lacuna Inc.-style, from the city’s collective memory.

    This wild success explains, in part, why it’s taken even close followers of the team a
    weirdly long time to recognize a plain fact: it’s been awhile since Michael Carter-
    Williams actually played good basketball.

    A mean regression
    “I’ve never played this long of a season, so I’m learning each and every day and I’m
    going through it a little bit,” Carter-Williams told Jason Wolf of Delaware Online in
    January, explaining a slump that’s since developed into something worse “My body is
    tired, a little bit, but mentally I’ve got to stay strong.”

    While I couldn’t speak to his mental state, his production has taken a nose dive.

    The primary problem...CONTINUE READING AT HOOP76

    Man, Game 67? There's only 15 games left in the season?

    Craziness.
    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!

    I'm hoping no Bynum translates to more Lavoy while letting Mahinmi rest/recover more.

    This is David West, he is the Honey Badger, West just doesn't give a *****....he's pretty bad *ss cuz he has no regard for any other Player or Team whatsoever.

    Well he was set to play a few hours ago, now they're saying he's had INCREASED swelling. So it sounds to me like this is a fluid build up. MRI most likely will reveal he needs his knee drained.

    Seems Allen should get playing time but Mahinmi will instead.

    He could still play in the Knicks game and the Bulls game. MRI results are immediate. The results will come tonight, and they could begin treating the issue by tomorrow.


    An accumulation of Synovial Fluid: aka knee joint effusion or water on the knee. This type of swollen knee tends to come on gradually and may come and go, varying in amounts. It is most commonly associated with Arthritis. -



    http://www.knee-pain-explained.com/swollen-knee.html


    ^Here's an info page. Lets hope, but I believe this is fluid build up. If so, Bynum will be fine. Just needs to have the knee drained. Similar to what Wade went through versus us a few years back. He had some bad shooting games in the series vs. Indy. Fluid build up in the knee was the cause. Once it was drained, he had his biggest games versus Indy in those playoffs. That was the Granger year by the way, when he was the old Danny.



    However........since Bynum has knee arthritis.....he might need an injection of fluid into his knee to make the joints work properly. This could be the issue as well. That fluid from one injection can relieve the knee for up to half a year if it takes well enough. Either way, this is a fluid issue. And once fluid is either drained, or injected into the knee he should be fine.

    I think shutting Ian down till playoff time would be the smart move. Let LaVoy play in those games Bynum sits out.

    He could make the Bulls game. That game is 4 days from now. Could make the Knicks game too. But it all depends on what injection he needs, and if they can find someone or have someone on staff to give it to him. But this isn't an issue where people need to panic.

    This is frustrating. Whenever I can watch Bynum isn't playing, whenever I can't watch he plays.

    The conclusion is obvious.....take one for the team...don't watch any Pacers games so that the rest of us can see Bynum play on a regular basis.

    Second unit looking decent for a change. It probably doesn't hurt we are playing Philly.
