There is no question he does. Ron is gone people think this Season is over people think it's a Mediocre season and we will be KO'd in the 1st round or 2nd round.
Now what does JO have to prove? alot of things can he win without Ron? does he have enough to lead this team?
If JO wants to be a true leader his 1st step is leading this team and proving to the fans why he is the leader and that step is proving the Pacer fans wrong.
