    Default My unpopular opinion thread (summer 2017 version)

    Since we are going to be entering the dog days of summer here I thought now would be a good time to roll out a new annual post I've been thinking about.

    In this thread please take the time to enter your unpopular opinion and let's all have some fun agreeing/disagreeing/debating them.

    We all have some form of opinion that goes against the grain and we've all secretly wanted to get it out there so let's do this.

    Oh btw, you can have multiple unpopular opinions (God knows I will).

    I'll even be so kind as to start.

    I think that Isiah Thomas takes way to much blame for his coaching here with the Pacers. (there I said it)

    Pritchard just had an offseason worthy of executive of the year, but probably won't be recognized for it because the benefits won't pay off for a year or two.

    I think Mark Jackson would make a great coach.

    My unpopular opinion is that PG is vastly over-rated.

    Myles Turner will be another Hibbert in 3 years.

    The Danny Granger trade wasn't the reason for the collapse it was PG and Lance.

    Jamaal Tinsley selected the right weapon that night.

    The Pacers need new ownership with Simon's loyalty to the city, but with Irsay's desire to win championships.
    Nuntius was right for a while. I was wrong for a while. But ultimately I was right and Frank Vogel has been let go.

    The guy who will step up the most this season is going to be... Lance.

    People are too scared the Pacers would abandon Indiana for a different city. I don't think many people realize how expensive it is to move a franchise. The new owner would have to obtain a approval of board of governors, fund a new stadium, and pay the moving cost as well as buying a NBA team that might be worth close to a billion dollars now. Also it is usually a team of people of buy a team, so everyone would have to agree to move the team. This is no longer an 11 million dollar franchise like it was back in the 80s.

    Keeping this in the current. I miss PG already. Oh wait that is not an opinion.

    I cannot stand it that Lance is a member of the Pacers team. The fact that he is the last player standing from the ECF teams really burns me up. He is going to make it very hard for me to watch this season. His game IMO is all flash, no substance and I believe he has many Pacers fans fooled into thinking he is the savior of God knows what.

    Dipo and Myles are average players, Sabo is Tyler Hansbrough with a jump shot.

    If he wasn't crazy.... Ron Artest's skill set could have led to his jersey being hung in the BLF rafters.
    You know how hippos are made out to be sweet and silly, like big cows, but are actually extremely dangerous and can kill you with stunning brutality? The Pacers are the NBA's hippos....Matt Moore CBS Sports....

    (Unpopular with some, popular with others)

    The impact of the Granger trade on the 2014 collapse is one of the most blown-out-of-proportion and over-talked about things in the history of the franchise. Subsequent events have shown that some of the key players on that team had issues that were going to come to light sooner or later (Hibbert falling off the face of the Earth, Lance getting in over his head and being advised by idiots, PG being a bag). Bird took way too much heat for trading a broken down player.

    Procedural television shows like Law and Order or NCIS are awful and only enjoyed by those lacking the attention span for more complex story arcs.

    Wouldn't the opposite be the unpopular opinion around here?

    Myles Turner is overrated.

    Victor Oladipo is underrated.

    Yes and I think now PG has become vastly underrated around here. A lot of that is because you feel betrayed. But regardless he is now underrated

    Well, that's YOUR opinion. I've felt that he was smoke & mirrors for the last 5, 6 years ..... Not an iota of betrayal. Just a lot of relief. Would have put the Pacers in cap hell for the duration of his contract.
