    Default Our defense

    I seen tonight's game (I followed it on League Pass), but from looking at the scores around the league, especially in our conference, other teams defense looks anemic:

    Boston 114
    New York 100

    Milwaukee 110
    New Jersey 96

    Cleveland 109
    NO/Okla City 87

    Detroit 108
    Philadelphia 88

    Washington 99
    Toronto 96

    Indiana 90
    Orlando 78

    Yeah, I know, its the first game of the season, but it looks like these other teams have lost a step deffensively. We didn't. I'm just going by the scores, mind you, but can anyone shed some light on his for me.

    errrrr....

    Why do the things that we treasure most, slip away in time
    Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
    Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?
    Till we fall away in our own darkness, a stranger to our own hearts
    And life itself, rushing over me
    Life itself, the wind in black elms,
    Life itself in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you

    It's sad to see that we're becoming as polarized in our opinions as the political landscape currently.

    Yep and I'm damn proud of it. You are a fake fan and you know it. Go criticize what movies I should buy and sell, and let people who actually watch this team play talk about them.

    Oh, here we go with the "you're not a real fan" BS. I asked a legitimate and sincere question, smartass.

    EDIT: Prefaced, by the way by "I didn't see the game." Meaning, for those that did, please enlighten me.

    I wish people would talk about the Pacers!!!!!!!!

    It appears Able's rant went over a lot of people's heads.

    Seems to me there's a lot of talk going on that has nothing to do with the Pacers or the NBA. This site is going downhill because it's turning into a fellowship center! Way to much extraneous verbiage. That means talk that's inessential or unrelated to the topic or matter at hand, which should be NBA related material.

    I've been looking around at other basketball sites because I'm not getting my basketball fix here. If I'm looking around, there has to be others!

    I think each and every one of us bears a responsibility to provide that content. If you would like better posts, I recommend that you write some thoughts about the Pacers and the NBA down - maybe even as you are watching a game - and post them on PD.

    You're a valuable member, Will. If you would like to see a little more meaningful content on the Pacers forum, I can think of few members who are as capable as you are.

    As for me, I just watched my first game of the season, and under great circumstances, but will have to write about it later.

    I think you missed the point, just as many people missed Abel's points.

    The content is fine as far as it goes, but too often threads get sidetracked or high jacked by conversations that have nothing to do with the Pacers or NBA.

    For instant, I don't mind a thread being hijacked if it stays Pacer related, but lots of times they will be 10 posts of sophomoric humor talking about someone's pants. (A thread I guess I didn't read)

    You're right Will, I did misunderstand. I guess I don't have much more to add other than I would really regret not seeing you around here.

    Oops. Maybe you haven't. I thought this was still on the main forum.

    I guess you can't hijack a thread in the shout box.

    Fortunately, this website is better than ever. I'm very pleased with how things are run, and hope that we don't start censoring everything just because people may not consider it 100% content related. The last thing this place needs is more censorship. Fortunately again, we're not going to have more of it.

    Things that aren't 100% related to the NBA have to expected in the off-season. Even after one game, that trend has vanished rapidly. It happens every off-season, and in no way indicates any sort of downhill trend for this or any other sports related website. On the contrary, the membership and basketball-related posting here was better than it's ever been for an off-season, and I hope the upward trend of the last 3 years continues on the pace it has been!

    Hear-hear. Btown for president!
