As Hicks said, there are a couple intangibles that need to go the Pacers way but I think they COULD be one of the top 2 or 3 teams in the EC.
And as far as a counter for Wade..... outside of Kobie does anyone? One man dont make a team. And Miami is getting long in the tooth outside of Wade.
If the Pacers learn to play together, play smart and trust one another they can be a very good team. The talent is there. Just a matter of if they are willing to sacrifice individually for the betterment of the team.
