2011-2012 Season Review:   The best way to describe Granger’s past season is that it was the season he finally didn’t have to do it all. It finally felt like Granger had help out there and wasn’t called upon to put up points all the time. Granger was a bit slow out of the gates in his offense, but things got going, and I believe he ended up with one of the higher scoring averages of April, where he kicked things up.  I thought in the playoffs, he played as well as he could against Lebron James, but it wasn’t enough.

2012-2013  Preview:    For Danny Granger, I would like for him to improve upon his shot selection. It seemed like he started off last season back in that mode of taking whatever shot he could.  He got better as the season went on, but he needs to know what’s a good shot and what isn’t.  I wouldn’t mind if he stepped up to be that guy that the Pacers can call upon in the last minute for a big shot.  Sure the Pacers have other guys available, but most teams have that one player, and I feel like Granger could be that way.
