    My counter:

    By the end of this coming year, Myles Turner will be in the conversation for best Center in the league after Anthony Davis and Karl Anthony Towns (lumped in the same category-level as Cousins, Gobert, Embiid and Jokic - above the Gasols, Horford, Deandre, Whiteside, Porzingis, etc.)

    By the end of this coming year, Dipo will be considered a roughly average sg in the league (i.e. around 15th best at a pretty weak position overall)

    Oladipo is a 18, 5, 5 type guy for his whole career, he never makes the bump up.

    Also, the Pacers are going to be bad this season, 20-30 wins.
    "It's just unfortunate that we've been penalized so much this year and nothing has happened to the Pistons, the Palace or the city of Detroit," he said. "It's almost like it's always our fault. The league knows it. They should be ashamed of themselves to let the security be as lax as it is around here."

    If he wasn't crazy.... Ron Artest's skill set could have led to his jersey being hung in the BLF rafters.
    QFT, except for the fact that he was crazy, Ron and JO could have been something special. Like a couple of NBA championships type special. I never really saw Paul Pierce as the special player that he was around the league, because vs the Pacers Ron guarded him. And made him look like just another guy.

    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
    This too. I get being mad at a guy for wanting to leave your team, but it just seems too much like the fox and the grapes to me. Paul is a great player. State of the art 3D guy. Can fit in to any team and instantly make them better. We will miss him. Deep in my heart of hearts, I hope he has a crappy time in OKC and decides to move back to Indy next season.

    The current NBA and it's obsession with the 3pt line and metrics has made for really boring basketball. They should bring back hand checking, extend the 3pt line, and ban zone defenses.

    Pacers will only win 23 games because they only have 2 legit starting caliber players in dipo and Myles who neither are a #1 or #2 option on a good team.

    Sabonis has way more upside than his average athleticism would seem to indicate, but it's going to take time.

    *edit* Probably too dark for this thread. In short: Karl Malone is a bad person. Google Gloria Bell and him.

    Vogel is a solid coach, but wasn't a great coach; always had glaring flaws and being a great person means he's overrated af here.

    Danny Granger's trade had nothing to do with the Pacers' dysfunction and it was the right move then and even now.

    David West's "toughness" was largely overrated (guess that's officially factual since he tucked tail and ran, lol).

    Bird was a good GM who took the Pacers far with little.

    Donnie Walsh was one of the worst GMs of the modern era.

    Pacers probably won't sign any big name free agents with the cap room next year.

    Pacers will be more fun to watch without PG.

    Here's a more on-topic one: The Indiana Pacers will never win an NBA Championship. Their ceiling is making the NBA Finals.

    It's only a matter of time until a dominant big man enters the league and the league-wide obsession with small-ball is gone.

    Unless the NBA reinvents itself, in this modern era as it is, the Pacers will never win an NBA Championship because. A. It's not a goal. And B. The current culture of the FO simply doesn't lend itself to what it's going to take in the modern era to advance to that stage.
    Nuntius was right for a while. I was wrong for a while. But ultimately I was right and Frank Vogel has been let go.

    Wouldn't the opposite be the unpopular opinion around here?
    Seriously that's all I see around here.

    Which brings up my unpopular opinion(basketball related) I am not the least bit upset that PG left here and don't really blame him.

    He was never going to win a title here(but I'm not convinced he'll win a title elsewhere either but his odds will improve)

    I have always disliked Larry Bird.

    I don't believe the GOAT exists in any sport(so yes I don't think Jordan is the GOAT)

    Speaking of Jordan while it may not be unpopular to hate him it probably is unpopular to feel he wasn't much of a loss to the NBA when he finally retired. I was thrilled.

    I agree with bacon...it's alright but I'd much rather have a nice juicy burger (without bacon on it) or steak, hell even for breakfast I'd prefer sausage to bacon.

    The draft is an abomination and waste of American exceptionalism. In no other field does being at the top of your class doom you to a failing company and then you're deemed a failure for not elevating them from the doldrums on your own while learning on the fly.

    Many of us will find ourselves rooting (begrudgingly) for Paul George during the playoffs.
