    1. Be healthy.
    2. Play better team ball, I think the Pacers defentily can show some improvement here.
    3. To early to tell yet. If Larry Brown stays, no doubt if he leaves and they can get Nate McMillian, probably a definate yes. If they get say Flip Sauners, highly unlikely.

    1. If we can stay healthy, I think we can definetly make it.
    2. Get some leadership on the team, players need to come up big, we don't have Reggie, someone has to step up.

    3. No, Larry Brown will be gone, I think they won't be nearly as good. If they get Flip Saunders in, I think they will be 2nd round and out

    For 1, get some players that can knock down outside shots. I think we can draft someone and also sign say, Wesley Person. Then force Jermaine O'neal to watch hours of Tim Duncan footage of when he gets doubled and kicks it out to Bruce Bowen or Robert Horry for wide open 3's instead of forcing up ugly off balance jumpers that barely draw iron. Then, hopefully, Jermaine will immulate this and not only raise his assists, but his fg% too.

    2, If we don't establish this in the draft, then trade for a ball handler that is an actual point guard and isn't a complete f**k @ss like Anthony Johnson.

    3, Preach entagibles and possibly pick up someone with championship experience. Times like tonight, seeing Robert Horry, remind me of how important that one type of player can be. The last player we had like that was Derrick McKey.

    We need to play together offensively, hope injuries/distractions are kept to a minimum, and add some outside shooting.

    I think JO will do fine as the leader, with some help from the vets.

    1. a combo of things. no team has a prayer of competing for the title if they have all the injuries we had this year. we must have the majority of our big names stay healthy and not get thrown out of games to establish a solid rotation. we also need outside shooting help with reggie gone. then there is the issue of who is gonna keep some of these guys from losing their cool. reggie was the guy to make guys like jax shut up and play instead of acting like a 12 yr. old. with him gone it will be a challenge to see who steps up in that role now.

    2. we could beat s.a. with a simaler lineup that we had this year. before the brawl, we had a team as good as anyone. after that, we had so many problems with the injuries and suspensions and never recovered from that.

    3. i have no idea what the roster will look like but, i am pretty sure brown is as good as gone.

    Ron Artest was shooting pretty well to start this season.

    Anyone think he could keep that up over an entire season? It'd be nice if he could become an outside threat.

    Eh, every year with us his %s drop in the 2nd half of the season. Until it doesn't happen, I'm going to expect it to again.

    Thats what I was thinking.

    Do we really need to sign any other good 3 point shooters? I mean, We have Fred Jones (With a healthy finger), Jackson (Pretty good outside shooter), Artest (Shot well at the start of the season from 3 point land), and James Jones (Occasionally good 3 point shooter)

    I think if Fred Jones got more active in terms of his slashing ability, We wouldn't even have the need to sign a guy like Ray Allen. Hopefully we can get a slasher in the draft somehow.

    Maybe someone has already said this, but to me it's obvious:

    1. Win enough games to make it to the playoffs and then win 4 games in each series.
    2. Score more points than they do (and don't leave Big Shot Bob open).
    3. Depends on if they let Darko play.
