Danny Granger and His Playoff Dream

Granger tells a local sports radio show that he expects his miserable Pacers to make the Playoffs. SRI has the quotes: “On the expectations for the team this year: ‘Overall expectation is we should be a playoff team this year. We have the pieces and although we are young we still have the ability to do better than what we have done in the past years. As long as everybody stays healthy and we make a commitment defensively we should have a pretty good year.’”

    Shyeah right, and monkeys might fly out of my butt. Danny Granger is totally over-rated, and we saw how over-rated during FIBA 2010.

    Paul George is the best player on the Pacers.

    well its not really hard for the pacers to make it but they will have to stay ahead of the bucks for second place in the central division because the bulls own the central division so its between the pacers and bucks….. Good luck Granger

    All the best power granger

  • Hammer

    Let’s c. Heat,celtics,magic,bulls,hawks,bucks. Those SHOULD b a lock barring injury. Then u got the bobcats,sixers,pistons and pacers duking it out 4 the final 2 spots. And no ones the clear cut out of those 4 besides mayb charlotte. So its possible pacers could make it the more u think bout it. I wouldn’t bet on it tho

    Best Teams:

    No way the Pacers are making it. I’d take the Raptors over them. Maybe even the Cavs.

  • Hammer

    Yeah throw the cavs n the mix 2 fight out the bottom 2 spots. They got a few players left plus experience

  • kobesBESTfriend

    with Jim coaching anything is possible

    I think the play of rookies Lance Stephenson and Paul George will be the deciding factor in whether the Pacers make playoffs. Granger needs help; Collison was a good addition, but without a stellar effort from whichever rookie steps up I don’t see them qualifying.

    Roy Hibbert is going to carry this team to the playoffs.

    Tyler Hansbrough is going to carry this team to the playoffs

    Granger is a beast. And I hope he gets help soon, or he will be leaving. But, idk what his contract situation looks like

  • ai come back

    danny granger is top 5 most undderated players…..and Jono….? the wizards really????

  • JTaylor21

    Well Hibbert better stock up on tons of protein shakes because that’s going to be a lot of heavy lifting for his lanky a**.

    I expect them to make it, too. Darren Collison is good.

  • Groves

    collison and hibbert 1-2 punch with granger as nothing more than a wing scorer… upgrade at PF required

  • http://itsahardwoodlife.blogspot.com omphalos

    George has an impressive shooting touch from what I saw of the T’Wolves-Pacers game. If Hibbert can draw double teams and kick it out the Pacers will have a potent weapon. That said, George struggled to create his own shot, and despite being a great catch and shoot guy is limited offensively at this stage.

    Roy Hibbert had 27pts. 16reb. & 6 assists tonight…

    Can someone help me fill in the blanks?
    1. Darren Collison (!) (Future All-Star)
    2. ?
    3. Danny Granger
    4. Roy Hibbert
    5. ?
    Anyways, Hibbert is looking really good and Collison will be fantastic–possibly the best point guard out of last year’s draft. Granger is already an All-Star. Pacers not looking too shabby at all; they’ll surprise a lot of people. Playoffs are definitely within their reach.

  • http://itsahardwoodlife.blogspot.com omphalos

    @Teddy; are you saying Hibbert is a PF? Because he can’t be anything other than a C really. Hansborough and McRoberts will tussle for the 4 spot and the 2 is wide open. If Stephenson can overcome his legal dramas and keep his nose clean he could very easily be the starting 2 guard by season’s end.

    my boy stephenson is going to get off

    possibly.. collison and hibbert are looking terific together but granger is so overrated
