Danny Granger Returns

Danny Granger, former All-Star forward for the Indiana Pacers has paid his injury dues. He is ready to begin his climb back into the Indiana Pacers starting line-up. It has been a whirl-wind off-season for Danny who had garnered may questions about whether or not he will be able to return to his former self on the court. Not that it is needed now with the emergence of new franchise player Paul George, but having a All-Star like Danny Granger couldn’t hurt things, right? He has answered every possible question about his role, his injury status, trade rumors, and what he thinks this Indiana Pacers team is capable of this season. Telling Scott Agness “We are really contenders now”, it seems that Danny is ready to fit into any role that coach Frank Vogel gives him. Realistically, Danny will probably assume the same role that Reggie Miller did when Jermaine O’Neal became the face of the franchise. Danny’s forgotten and underrated defensive prowess and leadership on the court will be assets that the Indiana Pacers will need in a long 82 game season. Not to mention, the guy can still shoot. However, there is the outside chance that he returns to all-star form. Heck, the guy is only 30-years-old, but only time will tell.


Until then, lets just relish in the fact that we are adding another high calibre player to the roster.

Beware LeBron James…
