I don't know if its just me but from the few games i have seen and looking at the box scores it seems like he's underperforming, you would think harrington is the leader and catalyst of the team. but since i don't pay too much attention to indiana's progress, who better to ask then their fans.

he is carrying injuries but there r other reasons

1. plays better wen he doznt have to defend much..

2. he isnt fighting for really low post up positions..

3. shooting too many jump shots for some1 with his athletism..

4. the guards arnt moving the ball fast enough and smart enough to get jermaine easy baskets..

5. harrington is taking alot of his shots..

6. teams r doubling him alot coz only Harrington seems to be hitting 3s..

7. he hasnt been too bad really.. i would like too see him get to line more.. and he might then increase his total points.. i would like too see it around 24 avge.. but he needs to want to score more and the scoring has been patchy..

His injuries are holding him back he can still put up #'s but they don't have a consistant rotation for him to comfortable in his role. One day he start at PF the next he's a C.

:?: I don't get it. He's playing the best ball of his career. Especially defensively...  :?:  The team is struggling due to it's guard play.(IMHO)

i have to agree... this is probably JO's best year of his career.  JO isn't a 25 ppg scorer, he's right around his avg of 20 ppg this season, he's having a career high year in rebs, blks, assts.  the reason he doesn't stand out is because his team is struggling.  its guard play is horrible, if the other teams had to respect our guards his numbers would only be better.  the yr he came in 3rd in the mvp voting he still had reggie on his team, granted that reggie wasn't a big factor scoring wise, teams still had to respect him freeing up JO for better opportunities
