3. Have more B ball IQ than Duhon?
4. Does he have more respect/personal pride for himself than Duhon?
5. I ran out of rants.
While all of these may be a definitive yes, have you noticed that while TJ is the Pacers best pg, he isn't playing and hasn't since December?
He isn't injured even though he has had some freaky ones.
He is completely out of their rotation. I think I would want to know why before I consider bringing him in.
TJ has had issues with teammates in the past, even while Donnie was there, and I doubt he will go that route.
