He is 26 years old and last year he averaged 26 ppg and 5 rpg. Will that be his max ceiling or will he get even better?

He definately has the abilities to get better but he doesnt seem the type to take a team deep into the playoffs on his own

It was a career year for him last season. So, he has nowhere to go but down.

Maybe he might do a little better next year but after that, he will probably just another star who averages 20 PPG.

I see a lot of TMac in him. Great jump shot, and can score in many different ways. But i hope he doesn't get injured like TMac

I think he is playing at his ceiling right now.
He needs to have stars on the team he can play with.
The Pacers future doesn't look too bad.

Why do you say it was a career year for him last year?

His stats may go up; I already consider the guy a superstar. He'll get that league wide recognition if the Pacers play well and make the playoffs. He is already an absolute monster statistically, he's going infront of Kobe and Dirk and a lot of fantasy basketball circles.

He'd be a great second option on any championship team. Put him with a dominating centre or PF and he would go off

I think he will. I mean, he really has nothing stopping him. He is already one of the most versatile scorers in the league, and has the potential to be a top defender as well. That plus, his solid rebounding and athleticism, I don't see why he can't.

So he would be great playing with someone like Dirk then.

Idk how you can think he should be a second option. He was top 5 in the league in scoring last season, he's shown that he can carry most of the scoring load. With that said, i think Granger needs a legitimate second scoring option behind him. Someone like Jason Richardson, Rip Hamilton or Micahael Redd would be good.

He will do better imo. He hasn't hit the peak yet. He will have a monster year this year if stays healthy. I would put him up there with Wade, James, Durant for the scoring title race.

he is about as good as he will ever be, which is 2nd tier superstar

I think he is really good player but I think people overrate him because when you look at his stats he looks like a superstar but he is the only scoring option on his team so he takes a lot of shots

he looks like hes on the same path as a young Paul Pierce. both very similar players when u look at there stats and situations.

wonder how long Grainger will carry a bad team until they bring him some real help.

26 ppg is no joke.

Danny Granger is a great scorer u cant take away from that. that argument people are making about him carrynig the team because he has no other scoring options is invalid. he had 3 other people on his team last year that avgd in the teens in ppg (TJ ford, Troy Murphy, and Marquis daniels)

However until he creates more of a complete game and gets his teamates involved more (he barely had 3apg last year. if hes gonna be a superstar he needs more than that) hes going to say a 2nd tier star.

He is already the second best SF imo, yes even over Melo and Durant. Melo doesn't play good defense consistently and Durant doesn't play it at all. Granger slashes, shoots, gets to the line, plays hard-nosed defense, everything you'd want from a star SF. His passing may improve slightly and his points may increase slightly, other than that, he's at his max.

Replace Pierce with Granger and the Celtics win it all again.

It sounds pretty dumb to say a 26 yr old is maxed out and will only go down, not likely. I dont get to see the Pacers much but I follow them and ppg are not everything. Granger could easily get better in other area's and even raise his average too.
Ya know if the pacers get healthy, they may surprise some people and have a breakout yr in a sense and nab the 7th or 8th seed. They would definitely need Murphy Dunleavy and Ford healthy and some continued improvement from Rush and Hibbert along with Granger getting his numbers, ya it's very possible.
I think Hansborough is one of the better rookies this season too.

Did You Say hes 26!!! Hate the Pacers but DG is the man. too bad they want the recognition as Whitess team in the "L" and he doesnt fit that bill. Hello NY!

He has the potential to be a superstar for sure. 26 PPG at 26 but of course there's always the argument that he's one a bad team. He's good defensively too, gets blocks and was known to be a defender before he became such a scoring threat. I really Granger, he has a chance to be really good.

hed be a good second option cause hes not a dominating player yet. dont even look at last year cause obviously hed carry the scoring load on the pacers last year. if any of the guys you named played for the pacers last year instead of granger then they would probably have had an individual season similar to his (idk about rip but JR and redd probably would have)

Last season was the best season of his career so far.

granger is a star, maybe not an all star but never the less a star... the kids a stud it just soo happends that he is a small forward and theyre are players like lebron who take his spot,,, dont be suprised if he gets voted in by coaches this year to be an all star behind lebron at the 3.

he's a 2nd tier superstar (melo, joe johnson,iguodala,paul pierce etc)

I think that Durant will be better in the long run. I think that Melo has the "IT" factor over Granger. The only thing keeping Granger from being a superstar is a bad team and lack of leadership. IMO, off course.
