Darren Collison

  1. T.J. Ford, Jim O'Brien talk it out in Indiana

    Oct 1, 2010, 11:09 AM EST

    Outside of wherever Larry Brown is coaching at any given time, it’s hard to have a more strained relationship between a coach and point guard then there has been in Indianapolis. Jim O’Brien started then benched T.J. Ford several times. Ford did not execute the up-tempo, pick-and-roll heavy offense as well as O’Brien liked. But…

  2. Indiana Pacers' fun with experimental lineups

    Sep 28, 2010, 10:30 PM EST

    The Indiana Pacers have a lot of new parts, new things for coach Jim O’Brien to experiment with. That has left Pacers training camp a little like the Island of Doctor Moreau, looking at the reports out of camp. Picture Mike Dunleavy at the two spotting up on the wing while Darren Collison and Roy…

  3. NBA Season Preview: The Indiana Pacers

    Sep 21, 2010, 12:24 PM EST

    Last season: The Pacers went 32-50, which puts them a step above the downright tragedy of the Nets, Timberwolves, and even the Wizards, but still among some pretty miserable company. Head Coach: Jim O’Brien will again have the Pacers running (they were the second fastest team in the NBA last season), running, running. This time,…

  4. Scout's list of five guys due for a breakout season

    Sep 7, 2010, 2:13 PM EST

    A handful of things we know about this NBA season. The Lakers will be good. The Celtics will lose three straight and some columnist in Boston will write them off seemingly forgetting last season. Cleveland will struggle. But it is the surprises that make the season fun. The unexpected. Like the guys who surprise the…

  5. Darren Collison is healing up, eyeing the playoffs

    Aug 20, 2010, 7:00 PM EST

    Darren Collison has gone from being the guy who backs up Chris Paul to the man expected to turn Indiana’s fortunes around. No pressure. But Collison sounded good with that leadership role in an interview on 1070 the Fan in Indianapolis. I think we have a lot of good things to look forward to, but…

  6. Darren Collison fractures finger on shooting hand, out three to four weeks

    Aug 17, 2010, 2:48 PM EST

    Indiana finally got the point guard they needed, and it took just six days for him to get injured. Somebody just can’t catch a break from the basketball gods. Darren Collison has fractured a finger on his shooting hand, according to Mike Wells of the Indianapolis Star. The good news is this is something that…

  7. Danny Granger and the Pacers are aiming for another big

    Aug 15, 2010, 10:45 AM EST

    The Indiana Pacers already made quite the shake-up in acquiring Darren Collison from the New Orleans Hornets last week, but neither Larry Bird nor Danny Granger seem to be ready to accept the roster as-is. From Chris Tomasson of FanHouse: Asked by FanHouse on Friday in Springfield, Mass., where Bird was inducted into the Basketball…

  8. The Flip Side: There are point guards, there are shooting guards, and then there's Lance Stephenson

    Aug 13, 2010, 6:53 PM EST

    Wednesday’s four-way trade saw just about every team involved walk away a winner. However, the effects of that trade are far more specific than just saying “This team got better,” or “This team accomplished its goals.” In The Flip Side, we’ll look at one player from each of the four teams — the Nets, the…

  9. Darren Collison's plan in Indianapolis: Be like Reggie Miller. Spike Lee watch out.

    Aug 13, 2010, 12:57 PM EST

    Darren Collison may be the new savior for the basketball heartland that is Indiana, but he is a California boy. Left Coast. Land of fruit and nuts. He grew up in Southern California and went to UCLA for college. Just like Reggie Miller. He told the Indianapolis Star he wants to bring the excitement Miller…

  10. The Flip Side: Dell Demps' attempt to appease Chris Paul

    Aug 12, 2010, 12:07 PM EST

    Yesterday’s four-way trade saw just about every team involved walk away a winner. However, the effects of that trade are far more specific than just saying “This team got better,” or “This team accomplished its goals.” In The Flip Side, we’ll look at one player from each of the four teams — the Nets, the…

  11. T.J. Ford shoots down the Pacers' buyout offer

    Aug 12, 2010, 10:25 AM EST

    As our own Kurt Helin noted yesterday, the Pacers have taken a new approach in trying to sever their ties with point guard T.J. Ford. Though Ford has been on the trading block since, well, moments after he arrived in Indiana, the Pacers were, as of yesterday, attempting to negotiate a buyout with Ford —…

  12. Who wins in four-team trade? Collison, Indiana and New Jersey big, but everyone really

    Aug 11, 2010, 3:02 PM EST

    It’s basketball — there is a winner and a loser. That’s the way it works. Except the four-team trade that went down today every team can claim it won, at least something. But just like on Animal Farm where some animals are more equal than others, some trade winners are bigger than others. Pacers: in…

  13. Report: Indiana Pacers negotiating to buyout T.J. Ford

    Aug 11, 2010, 2:27 PM EST

    Right on the heels of a trade where the Pacers finally get the point guard of the future they have desperately wanted, they are trying to shed the last point guard of the future. The Pacers are negotiating to buy out the rest of T.J. Ford’s contract, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo. Possible trade…

  14. Four-team trade between Hornets, Rockets, Pacers, Nets

    Aug 11, 2010, 1:54 PM EST

    UPDATE: 1:54 p.m.: Multiple reports now have this as a deal all four teams have signed off on, and it has gotten league approval. This trade happened. 1:33 p.m.: In the early morning hours in Hawaii — while the rest of the state was sleeping or surfing — ESPN’s Chad Ford got up and dropped…

  15. Darren Collison may be the carrot to go with a bad-contract stick

    Jun 12, 2010, 10:48 AM EST

    They’ve got a new owner and a new coach, so predicting what the New Orleans Hornets are going to do this off-season is about like predicating what Lamar Odom is going to show up for Game 5. Basically, you can’t. But this is not a high-revenue team and they are already over the luxury tax…

  16. Monty Williams wants Hornets to get out and run

    Jun 9, 2010, 9:07 AM EST

    The Hornets have one of the best open-court decision makers and scoring forces in the league in Chris Paul. Yet the Hornets did not run under Byron Scott. They played at the 28th fastest pace in the league (of the 30 teams) Scott’s first year. After that their pace ranking still was never fast: 21,…

  17. NBA Draft: Yet more reasons to freak out about John Wall

    May 22, 2010, 2:05 PM EST

    I’d probably come to your attention that John Wall is kind of a big deal. He’s been the anticipated No.1 overall selection since the start of the college basketball season, and has become one of the most hyped picks of the last decade. His upside is based not only on his ridiculous athleticism and talent,…

  18. NBA All-Rookie team announced, looks like a Don Nelson lineup

    Apr 30, 2010, 1:33 PM EST

    2009: The draft of the point guard. You need no more proof than to look at the NBA All-Rookie Team, which was announced today by the league. The First Team:Tyreke Evans Sacramento Brandon Jennings Milwaukee Stephen Curry Golden State Darren Collison New Orleans Taj Gibson Chicago Four point guards? That’s a lineup Don Nelson would…
