Pacers president Larry Bird was brutally honest when talking about Danny Granger in an interview with the Indianapolis Star, criticizing his lack of offseason work and slow starts to the season.
“He doesn’t work hard enough (in the offseason),” Bird said. “He’s not a guy who’ll push himself to the brink like a lot of our guys do. He works hard but he doesn’t push himself. That’s why he starts slow every year and he just works his way back. Now this year, he’s been hurt, so it’s a different deal.”
