I always liked his game. He was like a poor man's Paul Pierce.

Bad injuries back to back.

At least he got to mentor Paul George

I remember him playing for team USA and looking like a beast. Very similar game to Paul Pierce.

He showed crazy improvements each season prior to his knee injuries and then BAM, he was irrelevant.

It really sucks. I hope the same shit doesn't happen to Jabari Parker.

Now I've been inspired by OP to try and recreate Danny Granger in 2k18

Those knees. I still remember his teeth being knocked out in the playoffs. And I'm still proud that even though we lost to Rose and the Bulls in 2011, he kept fighting. I don't know if he taught PG how not to give up and not coast through the regular season.

Injuries, I remember hoping that he and pg would work into a nice 2 wing rotation

Should I go Driver/finisher+ Sharpshooter?

What archetype do you think would be most appropriate?

Hmm...I haven't seen the archetypes in 2K18 yet, I've been trying to avoid as much info as possible until it actually comes out, although I have been lurking on operation sports reading Czar's posts about the playcalling. And I did play through the prelude. Its tough because, he's an excellent shooter but I don't know if I'd label him a "sharpshooter", you know? When I think sharpshooter, I think Curry, Korver, Durant, Klay Thompson, etc. He's maybe a tier below those guys as shooters. Then he's not really a driver although he was capable. He's really a combination of both of those. He's just a scorer. Don't they have a scorer archetype this year?

Driver/finisher unlocks badges like relentless finisher and posterizer which I'm not sure fit with Granger.

Maybe go with shot creator as 1st skill and 3pt shooting as second? It unlocks badges like tireless scorer, difficult shots, mid-range deadeye etc.

This is a pretty useful spreadsheet with all the different archetypes possibilities and the badges that can be unlocked with each combo.

People seem to struggle understanding that the 08-09 season was 9 years ago...

Thanks, this is great. I think this is the way to go.
