AP Brief

Well, there goes any outside chance we had of making the playoffs. I know this team doesn't deserve to make it and it will help our draft positioning, but I really did want to see the Pacers in the playoffs this season, as I think it would have generated some buzz around the franchise that maybe could have gotten a few fans back. Well, attendance has still increased this year so I guess it isn't a total loss, but it still would have been nice.

Get Rush in there, and see what he can do.

It sucks, but it does give the franchise an excuse for not making the playoffs, and with Danny and Dun out, we should go into a pretty steep nosedive, which will give us more options in the draft, assuming something crazy doesn't happen, like we hit the lottery or 2 or 3 other teams move ahead of us.

As long as there's no permanent damage, I can think of worse things than Danny and Dun being on the sidelines, Rush getting 20+ MPG, the loss of the playoffs meaning Roy plays more, and us getting more ping pong balls.
