Great for Granger. He really has played hard this first week of the year. Dunleavy could have gotten the award just as easily I think. Nice to have Williams back. He was looking like he really took a big step forward in the offseason. He fits well in this system because he can shoot, defend and run the floor good too. To me he is like a 6'9" Granger sort of.

Seems like anyone who roles out on the court has a good chance at being successful in this system. We have got some really tough home games coming up the next couple of weeks.........keep it going Pacers.

Sure, Shawne's suspension was boring but his Playstation, plenty of hookers and his bong kept him occupied during those trying times. His "friends" also made sure a gun was available to Shawne so if anyone looks at him wrong he can take care of the matter.

Can we get the Star to find these people and somehow guarantee they're not allowed to cheer for the Pacers ever again when they return to respectable finishes in the East?

I do not understand all I know about
Pacer Haters. What kind of social life do you have? None? Go back to
pulling the wings off flies or Turp-

Seriously all these haters are just jealous - the Pacers are off to a fantastic start and these sad, miserable, pathetic haters are just jealous that they have nothing to complain about now...

Personally, I am really looking forward to Troy Murphy getting back in action. He will be a perfect fit with the Coach's system with his ability to knock down the 3 pointer while playing either PF or Center. GO PACERS!

PACERS Report Card:
Games 3 - Arrests 0, is in danger again. Shawne (it wasn't my gun and marijuana) Williams is back on the court, just not in court, YET.
Look, Buster, Shawne has owned up to his mistake. He was punished by the courts, and he was punished by the Pacers.

Have you ever made any mistakes? Ever got your klan sheet on backwards? Ever got your mask on upside down? Ever learned what it is to be an adult, and not a continuing idiot bigot?

Yeah--all Pacer-Haters go to hell and kiss my ass!!! Same people that root for the wife-beater Colts. But I guess that's OK, huh? Basketball is a superior sport in every way! As the Pacers win more and more games those people who are DETERMINED to bash the Pacers for the stuff mostly ex-Pacers have done IN THE PAST will look more and more stupid.

The Playstation is old news. It's the X-Box 360 my man. Shawne and I play Halo 3 on-line every night. Maybe you should look into getting one instead of looking at kiddie porn.

It might be worth noting that there are still more players here that caused problems (Tinsley, Daniels, Williams) than have left (Jackson, Artest). Correct me if I am wrong, but wasn’t Williams arrested less than 2 months ago? Yea, that’s turning the page.

For some of us it's more than winning. The Pacers can go 82-0 and many of us will still say the exact same things.

Okay, you can stop with the race thing...Correct me if I am wrong but isn't most people's favorite Pacer of all time Reggie Miller??? I guess he isn't black? Oh that's right, he is!!!

Secondly, have I ever driven around in a part of town known for drugs at 12:45am with a former cocaine dealer who had a stolen gun, while a different guy was smoking weed in my car? No, I can’t say that I have. Oh, that’s not even mentioning that he never bothered to get a license.

A mistake is remaining friends with the “former” cocaine dealer in the first place. A conscious decision is everything else I stated above.

NO body is perfect. Shawne is still a youth and is prone to make some mistakes. I say lets move on and welcome him back into the line up. Pacers have started out of the gate on a positve note. Let's support the home town team!

I can't believe a boston troll hasn't posted how great the celtics are yet? Come March when your three old men are on the bench with injuries we will see if you make the play offs.

Or better yet, sign up for Pats troll. This is, well formerly was, the only sports column without Pats fans going around frothing all over it.

Give THESE Pacers a chance. The stuff you're complaining about is a culture issue, not just ours. There are players on this team that try to earn our ticket purchase. Let them try without the hate, ok?

Remember a few weeks ago when there was a debate on here about Daniels playing over Granger? Yeah, that would have been a GREAT idea.
