Wow talk about a late growth spurt. Kid shot up after his rookie year in the NBA at 21 years old. Crazy and he already looked good as a rookie. Check out the pic. He is clearly taller than Granger and looks a bit bigger than 6'9 David West.

Liked this kid a lot when he was at Fresno St., he's going to be a real good player in this league if he keeps progressing. I like what Indiana is doing, they are positioning themselves to contend in the East for a long time.

If he can put together his offensive game he will be a problem. He reminds a bit of Rudy Gay but a way better defender and could be bigger.

Because Paul George grew two inches?

You watched the playoffs last year? The Bulls werent much better than them and that was before they got David West, George Hill and Paul George was only a rookie. Yeah I think logic says an NBA rookie getting taller and another year of experience can only be a good thing

Heediot
12-17-2011, 12:33 PM
Pacers have a solid squad. I think the Bulls over-achieved last year, so yeah Indy has a outside chance to challenge for the division crown.

Back to George. I wanted the Hornets to draft him last year. I think the reason they traded away Aldrich (OKC) instantly after drafting him was because George was taken right before the pick. He would have been a nice complement to Ariza on the wing last year.

that's a bit scary for defenders lol I could picture him just randomly growing an inch on a highlight play or something

Might be the angle of the pic, but I really thought the pacers were going to ship Danny Granger for Al Jefferson and make George its future small forward. That trade wouldn't make sense now with David West there and Hansbrough continuing to play well. Indy has a pretty solid team, with some cap to make mor moves if I'm not mistaken.

Bird told Granger that he appreciated him being a "good soldier" through the mess that was the Jim O'Brien era, and that we were going to build around him. Looks like Bird's keeping his word.

No one said that.

The highest I've seen is that they might be able to challange the Bulls.

We aren't really saying that it'll be a legit close race. We're saying that the gap will be closed. They can possibly go as high as 4th with +50 if everything goes well.

So the Bulls younger players didn't get better? Rose has another year under his belt and is only 23, as do Asik/Gibson/Noah. Deng and Brewer are only 26.

How did they do nothing but cut Bogans when they brought in Rip Hamilton and Jimmy Butler, who looked great against these very same Pacers last night.

Da Bulls are minus a Keith Bogans and plus a Rip Hamilton and Jimmy Butler. Offensively, they're more dangerous this year. I like the new Pacers team too but slow down on the excessive praise people, let them prove something first. Right now they look like an ambitious young team eager to compete.

Was Jimmy Butler a lottery pick or something? They cut a scrub for a washed up SG. Again I dont see the improvement. They didn't do anything to their team. They over achieved last year but made no significant upgrades. If you think a late 1st round pick and a washed up SG are significant upgrades then you are mistaken

Yep, Bogans > Hamilton and no late 1sts or 2nd rounders have ever been good. We definitely got worse this year.

You're the one who is very mistaken. It speaks to how bad Keith Bogans was that Jimmy freakin' Butler is an improvement over him. But it's true. Rip and Butler add a dimension to our team that we didn't have before. We won 62 games with Keith Bogans, and we only improved since last year.

Again, the disrespect shown to da Bulls in this thread and on this forum in general is just unfair if you ask me. If it was any other team that won 62 games last year and had the coach of the year and MVP on their squad, people wouldn't be acting like this.

Jimmy Butler was a late 1st rounder and hasn't played in a single game it remains to be seen if he is an upgrade. He could be like that bum you guys took from Wake Forest a few years ago then traded to TOR. NBA rookies rarely make a big impact unless they are lottery guys. Jimmy Butler isn't scaring anybody right now.

Yeah I think a lot of people are overshooting on how they think the Pacers will do.

But I think George will be the 1st scoring option by, at latest, next year. Last year he admittedly deferred to the vet players, this year he has the green light to get his own shots.

If you Bulls fans are basing your opinion of the Pacers this year just off of that pre-season game you are gonna be mistaken. They had a few players inactive, David West for example. George Hill still has to get used to the team, Paul George looks to be making a big step the way he just kept attacking the basket. As the season goes on the team will only create more chemistry. So keep thinking Jimmy Butler is going to lead you to the championship.

You have to realize that a lot of the people saying that stuff are some of the biggest Bulls haters this side of LeBron's scrotum.

That aside though, I've mentioned a few times how much I like the way the Pacers are put together now. If that trade for Mayo had gone through they'd be even more impressive. But they're still loaded with nice young talent and depth.

Exactly. They have a lot of "nice" players. They have a roster full of decent-good players. They will be perennial 5-7th seed in the playoffs and get beaten by a team with a superstar on it and a solid defense.

His length and quickness are why he is such a good defender already. If he can improve his midrange game he could develop into a starter this season.

The reason he is playing some SG is because of the presence of Granger at SF.

Same could be said for you if you think the Bulls are where they want to be right now after one preseason game. Rip didn't play either, and it's hard to imagine him not improving us over Bogans. Butler will be hard pressed to find minutes this year anyway (barring an injury) with Deng, Hamilton, Korver, and Brewer all ahead of him.

We'll see how the season goes.

rip hamilton didn't play for the bulls, for example... unless you are attributing bogans as the reason the bulls had the best record in the league last year, the bulls got better as well...

the pacers under vogel last year were 20-18, not a stellar record by any means... could they be better than that this year?, sure... but they have to prove it first...

jimmy butler is a rookie, nobody is expecting him to 'lead' the bulls anywhere... but he did make an impact on the game last night, which i think is more than anyone can say for the majority of games bogans played in with the bulls...

nobody is trying to dog your pacers here, but you give the bulls no credit... the pacers are the bulls of 2008-2009 IMO, where they have talent and can be good, but they don't know how to compose themselves late in games and close them out... the pacers have a lot to learn in that department...

The Bulls are much deeper than the Pacers who have to rely on Jeff Foster, Dahntay Jones and Lance Stephenson off the bench while the Bulls have Omer Asik, Ronnie Brewer and Jimmy Butler. Brandon Rush or Kyle Korver? The Pacers bench is good, it's definitely not bad. But the Bulls have some of the best, if not THE best, depth in the NBA.

Asik, Brewer, Butler, Korver.

Tyler Hansbrough went for 19/11 and throttled Carlos Boozer. He's our backup PF. It's a bit of an unfair comparison because by all rights Tyler should be starting this year, but Bird wanted to go with veterans for this year.

George Hill was heir apparent to Tony Parker and a favorite of Popovich, and HE'S coming off the bench as well.

Jeff Foster is fully healthy and should be an 8/8ish guy backing up 5 and 4.

Dahntay Jones is an athletic defender that can get to the rim.

So considering the Pacers have 2-3 starters on their 2nd unit, I'd say their the deeper team. Not better because the Bulls have a better starting 5. But the Pacers ARE deeper.

Tyler Hansbrough went for 19/11 and throttled Carlos Boozer. He's our backup PF.

Awesome, but the Pacers were playing that game as if it was a regular season game instead of what it was...a PRACTICE GAME. Pacers think the Bulls are their rivals but I don't think the Bulls feel the same away about the Pacers. You guys had more FTs than us and we turned the ball over more but we still won by a healthy margin.

Where is this arrogance from Pacer fans coming from all of a sudden anyway? Do something, then talk s%$&.

rip hamilton didn't play for the bulls, for example... unless you are attributing bogans as the reason the bulls had the best record in the league last year, the bulls got better as well...

the pacers under vogel last year were 20-18, not a stellar record by any means... could they be better than that this year?, sure... but they have to prove it first...

jimmy butler is a rookie, nobody is expecting him to 'lead' the bulls anywhere... but he did make an impact on the game last night, which i think is more than anyone can say for the majority of games bogans played in with the bulls...

nobody is trying to dog your pacers here, but you give the bulls no credit... the pacers are the bulls of 2008-2009 IMO, where they have talent and can be good, but they don't know how to compose themselves late in games and close them out... the pacers have a lot to learn in that department...

I agree, its just been really hard as a Pacer fan for the past few years after the brawl. I was just kidding of course about Butler, he looked pretty good. I guess I just base my feelings towards Bulls fans after attending a playoff game last year and all the Bulls fans showed no respect for anyone really. I'm just glad the Pacers are becoming relevant again, that's all. :)

Yeah that explains why we were playing D-league players half the game. The Bulls used guys that will most likely be regularly in the rotation while we played guys like Lance Stephenson who barely played last year and I think he did a pretty decent job against Derrick Rose. David West will make a big impact and George Hill still has to adjust, he is more than capable of starting for any team in the league. Hill actually went right to the practice gym after the game and starting getting up shots, there is something exciting about this team and they are gonna be better than all you Bulls fans expect. It's not like you guys won the championship or anything so stop acting like you guys have done something either.

Most the guys on our team will be regularly in our rotation, that's called having good depth. Some Pacer fans here claim your depth is better than ours, what happened to that? Yeah.

Pacers were a team barely above .500, Bulls were a team that had 62 wins, coach of the year, MVP and the #1 defense in the league. Yeah. Nothing to brag about? The Pacers have nothing to brag about. Woopee you made it in as an 8th seed and managed to win one game in the playoffs. OMG YOU SO MUCH BETTER THAN US NOW!

Having said all that, I like the Pacers and I think they're a good young squad. BUT, they haven't proven anything yet and I'm a firm believer in talking s%^# after you do something, not before.

Sorry but I don't think Hansbrough is a starting caliber PF on most teams. In the same sentence I could say that Gibson could be a starter on many teams (as would Asik).

The Pacers were well under .500 last year and only barely above .500 after Vogel was hired. They would probably be 6 games or so above .500 in a full season, because it's shortened I'll take them at 35-31 and around a 7 seed in the East after (in no order) CHI, MIA, ATL, NYK, BOS, PHI and ORL if DH12 stays.


Any Pacers fan who realistically thinks they can contend in the division without major injuries to the Bulls is just being a homer. These two teams aren't that close. Last year's playoff series showed nothing except the Bulls know how to win late while the Pacers had to cheap shot Rose the entire series to stay close in most games.

Boozer was also playing with an injured foot that limited his mobility and ability to jump. Boozer played like ****, I defend his regular season because many are too hard on him when his numbers were pretty good, but he was garbage most of the playoffs.

Hansbrough goes hard no matter what. Whether it be pre-season, regular season, or the playoffs he plays at the same tempo and with the same intensity. You could tell from the pre-season game that he has upped his game some. He took it to Boozer in the playoffs and early in the first quarter when it seemed both teams were trying to some extent. Having him off the bench behind David West makes for one of the best PF combos in the league if West returns to pre-injury form.

If this isn't a homer comment I don't know what is. Cheap shots? Boozer and Noah were taking cheap shots and of course no one noticed just because they are the Bulls. Jeff Foster never really did anything to Derrick Rose, Rose took it in a few times and Foster just put his arms up and Rose ran into a brick wall. Boozer and Noah are so cocky and Boozer is overrated. Just as most Bulls fans are cocky. You guys had a good year last year, but the years before weren't you guys a perennial 8th seed? Last year's playoffs did show something, that a group of young guys with almost no playoff experience could go into a match up against the team with the best record and could have easily upsetted them.

There are videos of McRoberts trying to elbow Rose after Rose got a breakaway dunk. Furthermore, it wasn't Rose "running into a brick wall." Foster and TH a couple times were putting him to the ground.

The Bulls were a perennial 8th seed, with Hinrich, Gordon, Gibson starting full time. Then they got Boozer, Brewer, Korver, Watson and Asik. Gibson and Rose got better with age. This isn't the same roster that was the perennial 8th seed, the only holdovers from that roster are Rose, Noah and Deng (btw, 2 years being the 8th seed is perennial?).


And no, Indiana couldn't have easily upset the Bulls. The Bulls played a couple sloppy games, Indiana played very well, Bulls still won in 5. Games 1 and 2 Rose absolutely dominated the entire Pacers team. Game 3 was very sloppy (15 TO for CHI) and Rose couldn't hit a shot, but it was a tie game at half, the Bulls led entering the 3rd and won it at the end. Indy did a great job avoiding the sweep in game 4, suddenly that means you were close to upsetting the Bulls? Please. Game 5 was never close. Up 11 after 1, 8 after 2, 19 after 3, win by 27. You were as close to pulling an upset as PHI was against MIA and DEN was against OKC.


Pacers fans should be happy. The team obviously improved with the addition of West. But it's not enough to make a huge leap past maybe a spot or two. Up to maybe the 6th seed, perhaps higher if injuries are a part of this year. You won't compete for the division, you won't beat the Bulls in a playoff series this year just as you didn't last year.

If any Pacers fan is that arrogant to think otherwise, a sig bet is ready.

Which brings me back to the fact that Bulls fans are so cocky and think so highly of themselves and their team. Why can't you accept the fact that we gave your Bulls a run for their money? Stop making up excuses for why we could actually compete with you. I know we didn't beat you last year. I respect D-Rose he is a hell of a player. I'm not just saying we could compete with you this year because of David West. We also acquired George Hill who will eventually be very solid for us, he can also play better D than Collison. Hill and West bring veteran leadership and winning ways. It will improve the all-around feel of the team, Brian Shaw on the bench with Vogel doesn't hurt either. Paul George has obviously grown and improved his game, he will be more aggressive this year. The Bulls have made improvements as well with Hamilton and Butler to shore up the SG position, but I think the moves we made are better, for lack of a better word. Who knows, only time will tell. These pre-season games mean nothing, both teams will grow over the season and if we meet in the playoffs I know it will be a hard fought series by both teams. ;)

KD was a similar athlete at the 2 position but was much more effective at the three; Austin Daye- another recent example.

Guys like George don't have the bulk or polish to use their height to their advantage consistently on offense and are too long to keep up with these quick footed 2s. They make up for it a bit with length, but at this level that only does damage to the 2s that can't consistently get their own shot in isolation, like Rose last year. Height is only an advantage if you use it.

Who knows? He may have the athleticism to pull it off. From what I've seen though, he's a very good, not elite athlete that would- in my opinion- be better off at the three.

The Bulls have a long way to go before they could be considered on the HEAT or Celtics level.

Mostly because we won 25 games more than them last year and they only took us to game 5.

This whole post is hilarious, but the bold is especially false. We won the series 4-1.

No one said that.

The highest I've seen is that they might be able to challange the Bulls.

We aren't really saying that it'll be a legit close race. We're saying that the gap will be closed. They can possibly go as high as 4th with +50 if everything goes well.I think well challenge it I think well also have a winning season my prediction 40-26...5 seed second round playoff's...

It also depends on if he can prosper with Danger still being the team's #1 option.

Bulls fans basically go into every thread that has nothing to with them and they just talk about the bulls. Every thread becomes about them in the general forum.

And very few heat fans actually know anything about basketball, but at least they don't bum rush threads the way bulls fans do.

I have never really watched Derozan very much in the past few years. Last I knew he was not a good shooter and is basically good for dunks and maybe mid-range shooting. Paul George can throw down some nasty dunks, a decent 3 point shooter which is more what he was known for in college, and last year he proved to be a good defender. Oh, and he is 6'10'' of course :D

Just like I'm assuming you say George since you see him more, what's wrong with us saying the opposite? He did double his scoring from last year, and he's added range this offseason.

I think George will be good too, but I'm just sayin lol

You did, but then you got all cocky about it. If I would have known you were a Raptor fan I wouldn't have said anything. I think Derozan has potential to be a good player. You happy? Get the stick out of your butt and lighten up. No need to make this into some pointless argument we are gonna forget about in an hour.

Again I fail to see how I was "cocky". All all I said was the name of a player, and you got all defensive. Don't blame me because you have the insecurity of a 15 year old fat chick. And FYI I happened to like Paul George, before your fan base gave him GOD like status.

But you're right about one thing (shocking I know), this won't lead anywhere. So i'm done.

I would like to go back in time and take back every negative thing I've ever said about this guy. I never said anything bad really, just downplayed the things he did well and focused on percentages.

Can I do that? After watching him again the Pistons (and we no longer suck, we did a lot better than Chicago or any other team) I'm convinced he will be a top 5 guy by the end of the season if not already.

What a G. That turn around he does under the screen is a thing of beauty.

On an unrelated note, everything I've said about Rose couldn't be more true. Can't wait to play the bulls.
