I like Granger, but comparing Danny to Pippen is a little much for this early in his career. Wait a while. We don't need any more big heads on this squad. Time will tell soon enough. I used to get so mad at Pippen the way he man handled our Mark Jackson. I know it frustrated Mark, as he did a lot of NBA'er. But ... there were times.

We all love Danny! It's just a shame he's learning from idiots like Stephen Jackson and Jamal Tinsley. Granger, Harrington, Oneal. That's the core of our team. Get rid of the losers..

I want to go to the games to cheer for Danny, Al and the guys....but I plan on booing Stephen Jackson every time he touches the ball.

I hope to see danny granger in an indiana pacers uniform for a very long time. They better lock him in with a long-term contract while his stock is still relatively cheap than wait until it becomes too expensive for them to re-sign him later on. I think danny will be key to the pacers run to the nba championships for years to come.

Danny Granger will never be nothing near Scottie Pippen. The article statd that Pippen was stubborn early in his career. This mean streak is what made his great. The article said Glover was accepting by nature. Pippen was never accepting. He wasn't satisfied unless he got a championship. Could Pippen be difficult? Yes, just as Jordan was and most of the great players. The best ones all have a mean streak in them that allows them to survive the tough NBA and they can sometimes be as tough on their teammates as they are on their opposition. Despite what some people call bad judgements, Pippen is still going to the hall of Fame.

Hands down one of the best, if not the best Small Forward in NBA history. As stated earlier, its a lil too early to comnpare the 2. Most forget the impact that Scottie Pippen brought to the game, 6'9 point forward, able to guard any position on the floor aggressively, plus it does help being team-mate to the GOD wearing number 23. The only other player that had that type of impact to the game at that height minus the defensive skills is Magic Johnson. I am not really a Indiana fan but will be watching the promise they have for this season. The next Scottie Pippen? Nope, but its is nice to see a up and coming star that shows close to similar promise.

Granger is an excellent athlete, but to compare him to Scottie Pippen is a bit out of line. Pippen ran the point more often than not, was an absolute lock down defender, and could finish as well as anyone on the break. Pippens shooting was suspect until later in his career, so Granger probably has him there. Danny in time will be a very, very good player as long as he stays away from the thugs on the team. Good luck with that Danny!

I think that the Pacers is a great Team
and worthy to be Praised. Larry Bird is
a great role model and will always be
remembered for his desire to win.I will
always be a fan of the state of Indiana
and respect goes out to French Lick for
lending us a Legend in Larry Bird.I am
considering working for the Star if the
offer comes my way." Go Pacers!!!"
