    Default Some things that may have been forgotten or overlooked

    After reading the board lately and just thinking about this team, at the beginning of next season there's a real possibility that in the last ten years...

    *The Pacers will have had 5 head coaches.
    *Larry Bird will have left the team twice.
    *Rick Carlisle will have left the team twice.
    *Dick Harter will have left the team twice.
    *Al Harrington will have left the team twice.
    *Dale Davis will have left the team twice.
    *Danny Granger may be the longest tenured Pacer.
    *The greatest Pacer of all will have retired.
    *21 point guards (15 or so of them starting at least 1 game)
    *There may be only two of our own 1st rounders over that timespan on the team including next years pick.

    I'm sure there are more little tidbits but I wanted to look into those so I thought I'd at least post 'em.



    Needless to say, but todays press conference changes my view on just about everything in this post.

    They will have endured several seasons in which the acknowledged "franchise player" didn't lead the team in minutes, points or any other meaningful statistic.

    (I'm thinking of both the aging Reggie and the ailing Jermaine)

    Thanks guys, now I gotta call my suicide watch councilor.

    Hey, let's not forget 3 different all-stars, an ECF paired with the top record in the NBA, and a coach who finished top 5 in COY twice.

    It's easy to focus on the bad, and I'm not discounting it at all, but I guess I'm saying that more than bad it's just been really F-bomb weird. I guess that's where G'foot is coming from too perhaps.
