    Default The Official Rick Carlisle thread

    I just thought it was time for this one because after this Pistons blowout, I know he's gonna get ripped a new one.

    My thoughts are he's showing no fire out there at all, he's not standing up for his team, he's very reactive instead of being a proactive coach, and he doesn't use his players strengths.

    I haven't been on the fire Carlisle bandwagon, and I won't be but I do think the Pacers need to come back with a new look next season - Coach and Player wise. This team has officially been run into the ground. There is no more, there is no hope. I hope to God they don't make the playoffs.

    He plays Austin Croshere over Danny Granger who has earned the right to be playing 20 mpg every night. That is all I need to know about our coach Ricky Carlisle. FIRE CARLISLE.

    I agree.

    Time for a new coach. After looking at the statistic in close games and watching these rotations, I'm convinced we need a new coach if we want to keep this group of players. We have the talent to suceed..but this coaching scheme just isn't working.

    ehh I am more confident now than I ever have that the end is near for the Rick Carlisle show. Earlier this season I wanted him gone but I thought Bird would never fire his guy. Now with pretty much all of the players having tuned him out I think Larry has to.

    Why? Because he is nice on his weekly radio show?

    Because he treats your favorite player like ****?

    It is not Rick's fault and showing more fire would backfire, you have to be who you are.

    I also don't think the players like J.O's leadership

    Larry has always said three years for a coach........I guess he knows what he's talking about.

    Because he's a good coach.

    Although you are right about Harrison. If he ever goes back to DNP'ing him, I'll be right there on the Fire Rick bandwagon.

    It's playoff time. Now's not the time to be soft on the players. It's time to light a fire under their a$$.

    My point is there is nothing Rick could do at this point, if he woke up tomorrow and started acting like Bob knight of 25 years ago, it would make no difference

    That's like saying the Pacers could play their *** off every game from now on and it still wouldn't make a difference. At this point, everybody in this organization that isn't a Simon is auditioning for a job for next season. If Rick wants his job, he'd better do whatever he can do to make this team give a damn again.

    There is nothing Rick can do to get the players to play hard. Haven't you seen this before in the NBA. The players have quit on their coach.

    You are entirtely missing the point

    I understand your POV. But tell me this, why after all the success Rick had in Detroit, do you think he was really let go?

    I don't know.


    But I listened to Hubie very closely today. They were discussing the pacers and the coaching, and Hubie said things were fine up until about 8 games ago, and things have fallen off. The body language, they just aren't responding. I don't think anything happended 8 games ago, it just has caught up with them

    Rick said something in Q&A that has me disturbed. He said he hopes the team can stay together and play another season while healthy.

    you are right. Something major has to happen. I personally think that RC will be fired and JO will be traded.

    I don't think JO should be traded, I just don't think he should be the leader. No matter what, you don't just trade 20-10 just because rhe guy isn't the leader you thought he was. 20-10 guys don't grow on trees.

    I agree Rick cannot pretend to be someone his personality says he is not.
    You cannot lay every loss on the Coach. Rick DID NOT assemble this team. He just has to try to make it work and you can't put a square peg in a round hole.IOW this team just does not fit together and it is not because of the Coach.


    JO needs to be on his way out of town IMO.He says the right things but does not back them up with his play.He says he wants Detroit in the 1st rd ....well I think we know what a disaster that would be.

    20-10 implying JO is a good rebounder... he isn't, he really is a horrible rebounder and most of his rebounds are gimmes... Alot of guys can score 20 points a game. Now don't get me wrong JO is a decent big man. But his contract way over his "value" for his play. We could be alot better getting 2 or 3 solid players that know how to box out.

    Remember earlier in the season when we had Foster and Scot playing C and PF... 2 guys who hustle for the boards, know how to box out and are smart players on the defensive end, it was much more effective. Having JO on the floor is almost a rebounding liability.

    It just seems strange to me that the pacers always seem to play their best games without JO... or maybe Rick coaches better without JO

    Wasn't it about 8 games ago Tinsley and JO were reinserted in the starting line up, or maybe it was just the offense was supposed to adjust back to them? I think that is the crux of the bisquit right there
