RIght now we are officially entering year 3 of Danny's prime. I am not here to offer some crazy trade scenario, or layout how we can get Chris Paul, Dirk, and Al Jefferson for TJ Ford and Dunleavy. I'm just throwing it out there that peoples primes dont last very long, and 3 years in Danny has not had any shred of help. We got an absolute STEAL with Danny in the draft, and it will be a shame if we don't surround him with anyone to help us compete.
The best parallel I can think of right now is Pierce. For years and years and yearssss, Pierce had no help. Boston was an absolute joke, while everyone knew Pierce was legit. He had Antoine Walker who was a stat guy (Murphy) but not REAL help, and look where it got them. Pierce played for 10 years before the stroke of God gave them a legitimate team. Danny is heading down that same path now, and it is tough to watch. With Indiana not being half the market Boston is, it is hard to imagine that same type of circumstance occurring where Danny gets immediate Hall of Fame type help. Before 2008, Pierce was known as a good player, but now a great player. It is going to be insanely tough watching Danny struggle on 3035 win teams for another 5 years. Lets get this man some help!
