Jamal looks like he will not come back and like J.O. will probably be injured again next year. He takes some pretty ridiculous shots but is still a good passer. Just don't give him the ball in crunch situations.
How do you guys feel for those two? Are you comfortable of handing the franchise over to Dunleavy/Granger/Murphy? What about the holes in the team?
With the Stephen Jackson trade, I remember Ike Diogu was the key piece the pacers wanted. 2 years down the line, Diogu is either injured/not playing and Dunleavy/Murphy has revitalized their careers.
How does the projected lineup of:
C - Foster
PF - Murphy / Diogu
SF - Granger / Williams
SG - Dunleavy
PG - Murray / Diener
make you feel? As I mentioned it is very incomplete and doesn't have even one defensive player.
Granger and Foster are known for their defense
