    Cavs fans that I've talked to on message boards are extremely high on CJ Miles across the board it seems. I didn't follow his game in Cleveland. Anybody here think he is capable of being a starter if Lance bolts?

    he's a 3 and D guy. He can start certainly, just don't expect a lot of offensive production outside of spot-up shooting

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    In all honesty, that's not a bad fit for us though. It would force Hill to be more aggressive and still keep some wing shooting threats.

    It isn't a bad fit. Just lowers the upside. Also without a real distributor, he doesn't fit the starting 5 as well as you'd think.

    Bottom line is, he's a nice role player but not a Lance replacement.

    "Bottom line is, he's a nice role player but not a Lance replacement."

    No, Miles is not a Lance replacement. For one thing, he seems to be mature. For another, he seems to know how to play within a role as part of a team. So what we should be saying is that Lance is no Miles replacement.

    How many of Lance's showy plays and personal stat-building were at the expense of a teammate? How many times should he have been credited for assisting a fast break by the opponents after one of his ill-judged attempts at a fancy play.

    Has anyone ever considered that Lance's ball-hogging may be one major reason that George Hill has had such a hard time finding his role as a point guard?

    Personally, I would like to see us find a great point guard and let Hill play the shooting guard with occasional time filling in as point guard.

    Easier said than done, I know.

    But I don't think that Lance's overall effect on the Pacers has been good. Quite the opposite. I think that it is time for him to find a new start somewhere else, sort of a last chance to grow up.

    I have no clue what you are talking about either. Shrug shoulders.

    I think he is a good fit with the starting group, especially if PG is planning on working out of the post a little more this year, he will be able to look for Hill, Miles, and one of our many Stretch 4's behind the 3 pt line.

    Screamin A just mentioned the Pacers today among the East favorites.
    PJ Carlesimo also did on Sportscenter this morning...of course, Broussard had them nowhere to be found amongst his top 4 in the East. It could go either way. I don't get the need to feel loved by media-types whom most around here don't care for in any situation.

    Honestly, if Hibbert and Hill play up to their full capabilities, I think you could make the case that Miles would be the perfect 5th starter. Stretches the floor, plays solid D, and doesn't dominate the ball. The problem is the former is a big if.

    Some analysis of lance on YouTube said he is limited athletically and lacks explosiveness.

    Just joking. I haven't watched a movie in years. I unhooked the DVD and stored it years ago. Can't say I've really missed it. Maybe one of these days I'll have someone set it up again. Then maybe not.

    Neither one are true, but I wouldn't say Lance is an above the rim player by any means.

    I always liked Ersan, maybe a change to different team would help him.
    What's changed about his game to cause the decline?

    Buzz among execs is that Lance Stephenson situation could drag out for awhile. "I don't think Indiana can go much higher," said one.

    reads to me like it could drag out because no one else is gonna give him the money he wants so he's going to have to come to that understanding before he comes back here. or I'm being optimistic.
