    The guy wearing #33 better show up when it counts. I didn't see him in the playoffs.

    In any event, this is Lance's team. He may come off the bench, but he will be there at the end of games because he's just better all the other players on the team. Sure, people want Myles to be better, but he's not. Dipo will be very good. We'll see what the pecking order is. Bojan and GRIII will get their time on the court but Lance will be more effective. Bank on it.
    Look I'm not disagreeing with you. He's been effective here. But man, its the off season. Can't you give it just a little break? We all know you love Lance. Myles is 21. It's impossible for him to show up every game. Myles was effective in the playoffs. Obviously as a 4th or 5th option. He'll probably never be the number 1 option. That doesn't mean he won't be the face of the franchise.

    Can PACERS fans stop rooting for a PACER to fail?

    It's pretty disgusting to see honestly. They would rather be right than see him succeed, even if it hurts us.

    The guy is one of our better players for sure. We need him to play well. We should want him to play well.

    I think Lance is the only player in our history I remember our fans openly rooting against while he was actually on the team.

    Where in his post is he openly rooting against Lance? I thought he was just defending Turner. Or asking BnG to tone down the ripping on other PACER players/bigging up Lance = openly rooting against Lance?

    It should have been Hibbert and PG for a long time, but one of them collapsed as a player while the other is a total bag.

    I do think it's kind of funny that Lance is on the roster at a later date than any of the other starters from that era because I know that has to drive a lot of posters on here nuts.

    I'm not speaking about this thread or BnGs post specifically, more about a segment of the board that pisses and moans every time the dudes name came up.

    I don't feel I was ripping on Myles Turner by saying he didn't show up in the playoffs. Honestly, it was the truth. It is no joke that Seraphin outplayed him.

    I understand we should give him a break with his age, but I think people shouldn't be wheeling out the phrase "franchise player" when they're describing junior. You give the dude that title and he has to show it. I'm sorry, but he's had 21 years to learn the game. He's a grown man now. If he's the franchise he better start playing like it.

    IMO the face of the franchise needs to be a franchise player and we don't have a franchise player on this team right now.

    Who was the face of the franchise for the Nets last year?
    Larry Bird qouted March 25th. 2015:

    Bird: I wanted to keep our group together because in the summer, if David and Roy opt out, we're back to zero, really. We don't have that much, so you leave your options open. If we did make a trade, I didn't want to take on a lot of contracts -- because that's what usually happens. Plus, I liked my guys. They're playing well. If we keep the core together and Paul comes back healthy, we'll be right back to where we were.

    And this is exactly what the TEAM doesn't need.

    I agree. Yes, even I agree. We do not currently have a franchise player. Danny Granger was barely that and a healthy Granger is better than any player on the current team.

    I'm gonna treat this as our default Lance thread for this post.

    Scott Agness did an exit interview podcast with Nate Taylor. The bit where they talk about Lance coming back should be required listening for all. The Lance part starts at about the 46:50 mark.

    http://www.vigilantsports.com/2017/0...h-nate-taylor/

    note: I didn't listen to the whole cast, I jumped forward to the Lance part. I don't know if the rest is any good.

    For a supposedly objective journalist, he was remarkably giddy when talking about Lance. Also noteworthy is that Nate Taylor wasn't around for Lance's first go around, so he's a new convert to the Lance experience.

    Yeah, I'd never listened to a Nate podcast before, that I can remember. But he was really likable in this one. Makes me sorry to see him go.

    I really enjoyed hearing Nate describe how happy and excited the support staff and front office people were to have Lance back. He seemed taken aback by it. It gives a different view of Lance than what many posted here on PD.

    I also thought it was interesting when he praised Vogel for being able to handle the personalities of PG, Lance, Hill and Hibbert. He implied that all 4 were difficult to deal with in their own way. He even threw in an adjective for Roy "Freakin" Hibbert.

    I think a lot of people on here blamed Lance because they had a love and blind spot for all the issues caused by Hibbert (Nuntius, looking your way!) and also PG. He was the easy scapegoat.
