It asks "do you think the Pacers will make the playoffs?"

The majority of the people say no.

Hopefully we can prove a lot of people wrong. :D

Two potential outcomes come to mind.

Either several of the players who are listed in the intriguing players thread will have a big impact on the franchise and the team will gel starting in December and make a push into the playoffs, possibly as a 5 or 6 seed if everything goes as well as possible, or it will fail dramatically despite lofty expectations compared to the last several seasons due to possible immaturity and lack of stable leadership on the sidelines as well as the instability of having several players not knowing where they will be playing at the end of the season if not before due to expiring contracts and likely trades.

The middle ground would be either an 8th seed against the Heat with a puncher's chance at taking a single game with hot perimeter shooting, or the 9th or 10th seed that we have come to know and loathe.

No going to happen, they are going to end up with like 34wins and 10th 11th or 12th pick again.

I'm going to be really optimistic and say we're going to be a 7th seed and take on Boston.
46 wins

I'm gonna be optimistic too. I'm gonna say 41 wins and the 8th seed.

I would say about where we have been 9th or 10th place in the East. I don't think this team will really start coming into its own until the following season.
