A lot of good stuff from a Q&A between Indy Star beat writer Mike Wells and Danny Granger. The Pacers captain generally is frustrated by all the uncertainty surrounding next season but has been staying in shape playing with guys like Paul George, Blake Griffin and Trevor Ariza.
He also plans to coordinate some team workouts along with Jeff Foster well before the season starts in hopes that, even though training camp and preseason are likely already lost, the squad can have some time together to gel before the actual season, hopefully, begins.
It’s short so go read the whole thing. But here are a few of his comments that I found the most interesting.
“I’m working out with no end in sight right now. Usually I’m ramping up to go full speed. With no set date on training camp starting, everybody is doing their own thing.”
“There’s not going to be a preseason, probably won’t be much of a training camp, either.”
“Nobody knows how much [David Stern] makes, though. That’s the craziest thing I’ve heard.”
“Everybody hates what happened in Miami, but it brought a lot of attention to the league.”
“There are some good power forwards out there. I think we need to be deeper at that position”
Not a lot of good news.
Nice shots thrown at the Heat though.
