Old Day for Rodney Stuckey https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6uLYgTuy1eM
Stuckey backing up Miles isn't terrible. It could be a lot worse. Losing Lance sucks, but I wonder is there anyway that Hill could still end up a backup point guard this season? Do we have enough to give up to still go after a decent point guard?
I don't see how anyone can rave about Lance yet **** and moan about signing Stuckey. These dudes have the same game. Lance is just younger, has more size with a higher ceiling. He was also a combustible personality who at times tried to be our enforcer when we already had one in West.
In all honesty, I'd have no gripes with Stuckey starting over Miles at the 2 guard spot.

I like this pickup. I don't love it, but we needed another guard and he was arguably the most talented one available for the min.
I hope we will find out that winning cures attitude problems, and let's remember stuckeys never had frank as a coach before.
Time for a new sig.
The entire draft. Love the picks of Turner, Young and trading for Christmas.
Signing Glen Robinson III
Trading for Budinger
Signing Monta Ellis
Signing Jordan Hill (not for the player, but for his deal)
Re-signing Stuckey and Allen
Oh my hes waaaaay better than people are giving him credit for. I think people will really like him, hes a brute at the 2. It's about expectations. Detroit paid him and treated him like an Allstar type and hes not that, so it was disappointing. Here he'll have almost no expectations. This is a good signing. There's a slight chance hell sustain it then its a great signing. Well see how a talented guy does with his career basically on the line.
It might not work out, but hes not bad, and has talent.
I'll go so far to say he'll either start or be instant offense off the bench even.
it's Evan Turner all over again.
Solo has 10 times the basketball iq that Brush ever had. Hes not as crazy quick as Brush, but he knows where to be. I seriously don't see the comparison at all. Solos not the knock down 3 shooter that brush is either, but can score in savvy sorta ways i think. I actually think they might be opposites.
Stuckey got 1 year vet minimum according to Candace Buckner... not bad but it is Stuckey
Time for a new sig.
you guys are seriously overrating Stephenson. He was not that good haha. Just because otwr teams fans think its a huge loss doesnt mean we have to. Before the season ended I was praying he wouldnt be resigned.
Now Stucky isnt that bad. Who cares if he cant shoot 3s. Obviously Bird knows that hence CJ Miles signing. We need to focus on getting a better PG.
Ironically, non-Pacers fans seem to like this signing a lot more for the Pacers than we do.
