Yes, they do. They still work the give and go like they did with Jack-JO, but usually with someone like Rawle.I mean do we have a play that calls for getting Danny Granger the ball at spot X on the floor for a shot? Or do we have a play where we run a pick so Rawle Marshal can get something?
And I think that some of the "JO plays" you see are intended to get someone like Murphy the shot the entire time. There is post and wait on the double, and then there is the 2 man game between bigs, and that's not the same thing. The Pacers do both.
Sure they don't do this like Utah, but I don't think their frontline contains enough physical offensive talent to run that system anyway.
It's only been about 4 years since it was just the opposite. Remember, the Colts couldn't even sell-out 2 home games in the 2003 season. Blacked out for local TV. Think about that. It's not like Manning, Marvin, Edge, Wayne and Freeney weren't on that team and they weren't worth watching.I'm only 22 but It kills me that the city won't support the Pacers like they do the Colts,
In 98-2000 fans couldn't have cared less about the Colts. That's how Tennessee got 5000+ fans into the dome for a playoff game.
I love Nap, but it's smalltown and fickle as hell.
