This team is going to be very deep. To be a great team, a team must be led by 3 good scorers, Purdue has them in E. Moore, R. Hummel and J. Johnson and solid complementary players and Purdue has them. Watch out for 6-4 DJ Byrd, he plays bigger than his size, is athletic, and has range. This team plays tough man to man defense. Granted, losing Chris Kramer is a big loss but Purdue has more talented players waiting to step up. The biggest question is getting everybody to play together as a team, but coach Painter seems good at getting all the pieces to blend and depth is going to create fierce competition in practice for playing time.
Purdue 12-1 @ the Vegas Hilton to cut the nets down has major, major value.

I like Hansbrough, but he plays the same position as Troy Murphy. They are fine at the "2" and "3" with Rush, Granger and a hopefully healthy Dunleavy. Pacers need a pg or a great defensive player. This seems like a deep draft for pgs. I'd love Flynn but i don't think he lasts, same for Teague. Trading also could be a possiblity. James Johnson would be temtping if he falls. So, who should they take?
