10/26/2006 Pre-Season Game Thread 8: Pacers vs Jazz - Page 2
All new rules or adjustments get overcalled in the preseason as the refs attempt to establish the new limits. During the season the calls always back off to a normal level.
So it's pretty much official, Cabbages would be cut if he was in Rawle's shoes, ie the low contract throw-in on the AJ for Armstrong trade. He's just playing awful, worse than last spring I think.
Mark has him getting his ankles broke by Chase, he threw up at least 3 turnovers in about 5 minutes, plus a foul and no assists. He traveled, he threw passes to the Jazz, just a mess.
I know the money and pride is invested, but it's looking like there will be no way they'll be playing SarJas once Greene returns. Dude might be in a suit by December unless something changes in a hurry.
After reading this thread, I sure as hell don't want to.
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

Looking at the box score, the play of Al Harrington seems to be the bright spot. Listening to the game it seems he has been drawing many offensive fouls. So its not all bad in pacerland. Definitely worth giving up a first round pick...
Don't get me wrong. It's obviously silly to take too much from this game, but it has confirmed my inner fears of how this team might turn out...which are the following:
The emperor has no clothes. This "new style" is an experiment that will blow up in TPTB's face. How many poor shooting finesse teams have won an NBA championship? Yes, poor shooting and soft. That's really how I see this team.
Also, there are a lot of unproven rookies and Euro guys on this club...more inexperience than we have seen on this club in more than a decade. Our rookies are not blue chip lottery guys either. Utah is a well coached, physically strong and disciplined team that plays more like a Euro club...and it is ripping this "new style" to pieces. I would not be surprised to see us go 10-20 and find TPTB looking for new strategies.
It's just a preseason game...it's just a preseason game...it's just a preseason game...it's just a preseason game.
