Thread: An "inverted" offense?

    Default An "inverted" offense?

    Gregg Doyel's upcoming article about Caleb Swanigan's superlative workout with the Pacers today (yes, I'm driving the Biggie bus) triggered a question in my mind; one worth batting around by the armchair-coaches among us:

    What if "bigger & tougher" especially applies to our guards & wings? What if Pritch & Nate intend to run an offense where our outside-shooting bigs (Myles ... Thad? Biggie? BLopez??) pop outside a lot more and our guards & wings use a size & strength match-up advantage to frequently post up underneath?

    Would this be desirable? If so, how does this shape your opinion of draftee/FA targets for the Pacers to pursue?

    Discuss.

    If I had to guess, I'd say the idea is that they want guys who are capable playing both inside and out. Pritchard mentioned versatility a few times, and it's certainly the way the league is heading right now.

    I honestly think Pacers want to get bigger on the wings too. Ellis isn't get it done.

    In my opinion Bird wanted to have 5 guys on the floor that were basically interchangeable..."positionless basketball. He wasn't successful because he was rebuilding on the run. I think Pritchard wants the same thing. If he could have 4 athletic guys around 6'8" and Myles Turner on the floor, he would be pretty happy.
