    I'd say 43 sounds like music to my ears.

    that is 16 out of 25 against "playoff" teams to kickoff the season. This could be a shaky start. Let the pessimists prevail.

    43.

    I almost said 45, but we have some players that have no experience and are going to be playing big minutes.

    However, I really think the Pacers are going to surprise people this year. I think we have a team that will enjoy playing the game and will have a never say die attitude.

    IMO, it will be the most enjoyable year since Reggie Miller left Indy.

    I think the start of the season , we will remain a little above being a .500 team ..
    But once January rolls around ,and our chemistry is developed by then , as well as our lineup solidified .
    I see us going on a few real nice runs, like Houston done after losing Yao ... and being THE surprise team of the East

    So my prediction is gonna be

    50 Wins
    32 losses

    with us battling for the 4th/5th seed , because I think that there will be 3 to 4 teams that are gonna be pretty darn close
    in the standings this year...


    edited to add .. i meant 4th/5th seed but if we dont win that many i do see us droppping down to battling 6th/7th at worst

    Plumlee reminds me of a young Dale Davis. Good rebounding and he contests shots well on defense and his offensive game is very raw just like DD's was coming out of college.

    Wow. If we are above .500 at Christmas, I'll post youtube video of me eating my hat.

    I expect us to be pretty rough until the ASB, with a late-season push for the playoffs (against tanking opponents) that gets us close to .500 by season's end.
    Welcome to Pacers Digest! New around here? Here are three tips for making the forum a great place to talk about Pacers basketball.

    • 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.

    Enjoy your time at PD!

    Nuntius was right. I was wrong. Frank Vogel has retained his job.

    48 wins this year. I'm very optimistic that this team will be the big suprise of the NBA.

    Wow, now that's a stretch and a half! The Thunder don't have the overall quality of players the Pacers have. Why should anyone being realistic think they can win 38-40 games? Being realistic, the Pacers have a good shot at winning 38-40 games. They have a better team than last year, so a few extra wins this season is realistic.
    Add to that that the Thunder also come out in the tough western conference and I indeed definitely view the Pacers getting more wins then Oklahoma.

    35, but as many as 41. If the East stays down it could be enough for a 7/8 seed, hopefully.

    To get a more realistic look consider the OKC team. Rush, Hibbert, Granger, yes they are nice. But that team has Durant, Green, Mason and Westbrook and do any of you expect 38-40 wins from them?
    I don't see how you are being realistic just naming the young guys on both teams. We have much better vets then they do, and it's the vets that carry a team.

    Our biggest problem last year was our point guards and that's a strength this year.

    I think you guys are really selling the Pacers short this year. I think we will be fighting for home court advantage. That will give us about 48 wins.

    Im going with 43.. just sounds like a safe number...

    But if i was to guess based on our luck.. I would say someone important gets injured, and we finish with like 36 wins.

    Everyone healthy for at least most of the season: 45

    Rampant Injuries: 36

    So give me 41

    57. Hibbert or Rush winning the ROY award and the other finishing very solid. Danny and Dun both average 20 each cashing in 7 30 point games apiece.

    The Pacers will be applauded for their new found perimeter defense due to the additions of Ford Jack and Rush and Granger progressing one step further, but also being able to play PF in our scorers lineup. Rush progresses one day and Dun has no problem being 6th man on a team that has a shot at the title for years to come.

    Our post game will be envied. Hibbert showing he can be our franchise C. Rasho offers a very solid year, Foster is still strong at D and rebounds, Murphy having a break out year due to the additions of Rasho and Hibbert, two true seven footers that will create many mismatches for Troy. McRoberts will become a fan favorite due to his hustle and his heart to play the game.

    We will go from one of the weakest to one the deepest in terms of big men. JO was over the hill. We got the deal of the century getting Ford Rasho and that draft pick that is almost certain to give us a franchise player.

    Bird wins Executive of the Year. Tinsley is moved to a team that is thin at PG due to injury before the deadline.

    We push a team in the East finals and we have a shot to win, and the Pacers fever is reborn.

    It's on a limb but I believe the mold is there and it may not be this year, but a couple years from now we could be sitting stacked returning to the title game, maybe winning it this time. I can't wait to see this year even if I’m wrong and we barely push 8th seed.

    We have so much potential. The future is bright. Larry is doing great. If the next two drafts go as well as this one, we are doing great.

    I'm worried about Dun's knee, but I guess this would lead to more time for B. Rush.

    But an hour or so later, Hibbert wrote on his Twitter account: "Love this coach [and] I love this team. We can go far this year if we play like that. 2night we played our hearts out. Just didn't get the win."

    "They could turn out to be only innocent mathematicians, I suppose," muttered Woevre's section officer, de Decker.

    "'Only.'" Woevre was amused. "Someday you'll explain to me how that's possible. Seeing that, on the face of it, all mathematics leads, doesn't it, sooner or later, to some kind of human suffering."
