    Default Am I just blowing smoke?

    More than a one-word answer needed.

    I've said the same thing over and over... one of our main problems from last year is that the current roster doesn't allow a stable rotation. This problem hasn't been fixed yet, although getting rid of Brad and Mercer helped (although it's obviously hurt in other ways).

    Do you guys agree with me on this? I haven't heard much discussion one way or another. I know I'm often too comfortable on my hobby horse, but I really do see this as an issue. If this is really a problem, then it's not one that coaching can fix. If there are changes to be made, Bird/Walsh need to make them.

    • Log in. Even if you want to read instead of post, it's helpful because it lets you:
    • Change your signature options. You can hide all signatures by choosing "Settings" (top right) then "General Settings" (middle left) and unchecking the box "Show Signatures" (in the "Thread Display Options" area).
    • Create an ignore list. I know it may seem unneighborly. But you're here to talk about the Pacers, not argue with someone who's just looking for an argument. Most of the regular users on here make use (at least occasionally) of the "Ignore" feature. Just go to "Settings" -> "Edit Ignore List" and add the names.

    Sorry, I figured everybody would be sick of hearing it by now.

    The short of it is that with Jermaine, Harrington, Artest, Foster, Croshere, and Bender all being natural forwards, our frontcourt rotations are hard to balance.

    I don't agree.

    The lineup has been really stable. the only two things that have not been is the point guard and whetherr Cro or Pollard will play

    And even the point guard position has been stable, you know right now Tinsley will start and play about 32 minutes and AJ will play about 16 and you can set your clock to when they will come in and out.

    You know AL comes into the game at the 5 minute mark of the 1st and 3rd quarter. Pacers play with Artest at the shooting gaurd for a cpuple of mintes before Freddie and AJ come in. J.O gets his rest at the end of the first and 3rd quarters. Artest plays through the whole 1st and 3rd quarters, and he gets his rest early in the second and 4th when J.O comes back.

    J.O or Artest are always on the through the whole game

    It is the same every game.

    Anthem, Am I misunderstainding your point?

    It's been stable with Croshere racking up rookie minutes and Bender on the injured list.

    Do we expect that to continue all year? Should both of those guys stay on the third string?
