    USA Basketball may have to turn to Kyle Singler at the SF...

    Paul George is 24 years old. He be able to recover but depending on how severe the break which had both my wife and mother in law cringing, it could take year. I think the Louisville guard Kevin Ware came back After A year.
    I pray that he fully recovers....but it appears that this drops the Pacers down in the second tier of the conference. ..and we could move up...unless Stuckey fills in at the 3 and does wonders for them. ...

    The Pistons are currently the #10 team in the East at best.

    That's just on paper, but injuries, chemistry, one badass superstar, a mid season acquisition and unintentional tanking dictates where teams will end up in the end.

    I hate predictions, so I will go out on a limb and say that we will finish anywhere between 2nd and 15th... :cheers:

    I think Adam Silver was pooping his bald pants (Curb Your Enthusiasm reference) when he saw George go down in a heap. Very bad for the NBA.

    I couldn't resist. WOOOOW. Some things cannot be un-seen. The definition of the word "gruesome".

    After 14 years of being married, I learned something new about my wife last night.
    She was so intrigued by the Paul George footage that she had her own little YouTube film festival of "history's most gruesome sports injuries". I can't handle that stuff. I see stuff like that and all I think about is the next time I play pick-up hoops or catch-wreck off of my bicycle, I'm gonna see one my shins sticking out in some weird angle.

    Basically, I spent last night being chased around the house by Mrs BDL holding an iPhone 5s with "the Joe Theisman incident" being shoved in front of my face.

    I've learned that my wife is a morbid psychopath.

    All speculations and rumors, and Monroe camp has only limited options.

    One of the great things about not having Dumars around is that nobody in the Pistons FO has jumped the gun to try and give him a big contract!

    Its a bit sad hearing that he doesn't want to play for Detroit anymore.

    Truer words have never been spoken brother Panda.
    Joe would have maxed-out Greg Monroe faster than a stolen credit card.

    This may be true, but at this point I am writing it off as a false rumor.

    I HATE that video. And I think about PG himself. How did that feel? And did he watch the video of his injury? And how is he supposed to jump again like that without thinking about that accident??? I had two really bad injuries to my knee and I think about how it felt when I landed in that awkward position every time I play some ball.

    That's the Pacer spirit!

    I wonder how things are over there now with Stuckey poised to start as a wing after the George injury and the Stephenson loss.

    I don't want to sound morbid or insensitive, but how lucky is Rodney Stuckey? He starts his career behind a Finals MVP guard and gets handed the keys to the kingdom. After 8 years, he's all washed up and is reduced to a bench role on veteran's minimum and the top player on the team goes down with an injury that spans Stuckey's contract, once again putting him in a position to succeed.

    BleacherReport: "George and Stephenson divvied up the toughest perimeter defensive assignments last season. Those will now likely be split between George Hill, Rodney Stuckey, C.J. Miles and Solomon Hill, with Chris Copeland and Damjan Rudez possibly factoring in as well.


    Even if Stuckey and Miles were stonewalls themselves (they're not),Vogel and his staff would still be in damage-control mode heading into next season. Continuity is key for a defensive power. The Pacers are now forced to replace 40 percent of the league's highest-used five-man lineup from last season: Hill, George, Stephenson, David West and Roy Hibbert.

    And that percentage, while technically correct, feels low considering the impact those two players had.
    "

    Looks like we could be competing with the Pacers for the 8th seed in the playoffs this year!
