His teammates have nicknamed him "Hollywood" for his good looks. He is starting to carry a swagger on the court that resembles a player who has been in the league eight or nine years, not that of a third-year ...

I'd say he's alot closer to being the "next Reggie" than JO will ever be

Sorry y'all, he's closer to "Special K" and wears the same number. Clark had tunnel vision too the tune of twenty pts/twenty rebs per game. I wonder why Danny picked #33 anyway, with Kellogg and Bird having worn it?

Was Artest a prophet or what? They got rid of Carlye, and changed the style of play to enhance the offensive talents of the team. Maybe if he had been better coached, we could have had something here.

Granger appears to be a credit to the Pacers on and off the court. He looks clean and decent. No tattoos, no braids and a respectable hair cut. I hope he doesn't listen to too much advice from some of the other Pacers or join in their night time escapades. If so, he will continue to be a valuable player to the Pacers. His decency is getting him noticed, not just his play time.

I thought this article was to be about Danny Granger. NOT! Jermaine is so full of himself it is NOT funny!!! If it wasn't for him there would be no Indiana Pacers. He taught Danny, he has made them all. He is Mr. Wonderful, the Star of Stars. He is the only one that knows anything about basketball. If you don't believe that, ask him he will tell you how wonderful he is.

I don't want Jermaine hurt, which I don't think he really is, or he couldnt' run down the court the way he does, but I am so glad he is sitting on the bench. The Pacers can play ball. With him the "STAR" they can't do anything because HE is Mr. Wonderful and is the only one that can do anything. Surely, Larry and Jim and whoever else that it should matter to, notices that. YOU would have to. Trade him, fire him, or whatever you have to do. Let him watch his movies and stay away from the Pacers.

You have nominated him for the "All Stars" again this year. This is what he done last year as well. Couldn't play ball, I have a bad knee, but I have to be an All Star, I am Mr. Wonderful. He is so phony. Why is he allowed to rule the Pacers? He is a nobody... Dogs rule, Jermaine drools.

God bless the Pacers.

The Pacers have been a team compiled of decent players without a clear leader on or off the floor. O'Brien is doing a better job at leading them off the floor they now need someone to step up and lead on the floor. Someone with class and brains not "thuganomics".

Haven't you heard better defence makes better offence. The same goes with leadership. When someone steps up to lead this team their game will step up with it. Granger is a little young to be the leader of the team. Tinsley could do it if he keeps his mind on the task at hand.

O'Neal is a player that let the game and this team get a way from him. It's a fast paced run and gun game to be on top. Half court games slow down the pace and slow the flow of the game. With his negativity and injuries he should bow out of the game, go west and run a night club.

I think he's referring to the comments about tattoos, braids, haircuts, etc, which I agree with. Just because someone has braids and tattoos, you shouldn't stereotype them and say they can't be a leader. That's a total cop-out. It's all about your attitude and performance while on the court or field? Don't believe me? Just look at this pic...

I agree. I thought Marquis Daniels looked like a thug, but I heard him interviewed by Stacey Paetz the other night and found him to be a sweet and humble guy. I am ashamed I fell into the stereotyping so many small minded people on these boards subscribe to.

I'd say Granger could be the next Reggie, He's better than Reggie was at year 3, and he can shoot, post, defend and drive...His passing and dribbling will get better...Lets remember Reggie was just a shooter (no knock at all towards Reggie) but I think Danny has potential to be as great as Reggie...Special K...Come on Cooper get your head out your ass

I wish Jermaine would shut up, Danny is already better than him.
