With all of the crap that we have had to go through, and all of the injuries and suspensions, we are still in playoff shape. You cannot say enough about how well this coaching staff has done. I mean, as of today, we are tied for 7th in the east (as Orlando loses).

3 cheers for this staff!:happydanc :dance: :buddies: :bowdown: :cheers: :applaud: :applaud: :applaud: :champagne :champions :goponies: :jump: :love: :rockon2: :thankyou: :worship: :worship: :worship: :worship: :mango: :cucumber: :rock: :pineapple :carrot: :apple: :dorange:

Yup Rick,Mike Brown,KO and all the other guys have been doing a great job, if this happend to many other teams they would fall apart and be in the lottery, I'm really happy that we have one of the best coaches in the NBA.

Yeah, I agree. I am glad we have Rick&Mike&Co. Any other team would probably not be in the playoffs with all the crap we have gone through.

I love Rick Carlisle. Any other team in a situation like ours with suspensions/injuries etc. would be no where near the playoffs but we have the #7 seed now. I'm proud of our guys and our coaching staff.

Aggreed! Good thing is Orlando, Chicago and even Cleveland and the Wizards are still very close to us in the rankings. Most have a few games played less and one or two wins more, but take Washington for instance, they are doing bad over there now, going 3-7 over the last 10, same as Cleveland, while Orlando is 4-6.

Regards,

Mourning :cool:

Not to rain on anyone's parade, but if you believe Larry Bird is true to his word, next year, Rick Carlisle will be coaching his last year with the Pacers. Larry said 3 years and that is it. Does anybody really believe this will happen?

As successful as Rick has been, this year could well go down as one of the best jobs he has or will ever do.

Rick will coach this team for many more years, it would be stupid as hell just to let the guy go after next year.

He's doing great when his best players are out at keeping the team competitive.

How quickly everyone is forgetting Michael Curry; the force-it-into-JO-every play offense; the struggles in February re-integrating SJax to the rotation; the frustrating disappearance of David Harrison; etc.

Just trying to keep it objective, though I'm sure someone will be on here soon to call me a "hater". :unimpress

You've been extremely negative lately.

Jay's dead on with his criticisms, but as someone who didn't like Rick's hiring from the beginning, he's gone a long way this year to convince me otherwise. That said, part of me still feels Mike Brown deserves most of the credit and we'll fall apart if/when he gets a head job. (Yep, that was just for you, Rat. No pictures, please. :blush: )
