This is my first Thread and it sounds a bit crazy, but after watching the game tonight you guys may understand that. Perhaps it's a little cry for help in these dark Pacers days but I wanted to point out, that something needs to change...and no I don't think it's enough when Granger is healthy!
So I have a good idea: When we keep playing like tonight all year, we can give the youngsters a lot of playing time, means we need no sarters, means we can trade or give them away, means we save a lot of money, means we can buy some new young players! And the funny thing about it is, I would prefer watching this young team more than the current team...hehe I am crazy right now but I mean where is the difference when you loose by 40 either way?
Indiana isn't a team like Boston, which has the money to buy new Stars. Indiana is also no team which can play for the lottery, hoping we get John Wall!
So we need to produce out of the talentlevel we have and can get with our money. We need to focus extremeley on the young guys and build a kind of base around Granger before trying to get some other allstartype players (who also won't be interested before sth changes)!
Hey wake up this is the NBA, and everybody who plays in there must have any talent!
I just hate these moneygame,
removed this part because PD can't handle it
When the team doesn't work, we buy one there and one there instead of trying to build our guys up!!!
You can imagine that I am a big fan of the things going on in Oklahoma these days. They did what I mentioned before, they let the young guys play and they do everything to build around Durant, but not with big trades but with focus on the youngsters! They are in a pretty good position to make a run next year! I also like what happens in Sacramento, Memphis and of course in Houston. They play people who aren't big time players yet, but look where they are in the standings!
I mean nothing against Bird and his offseason moves, I pretty much liked them but what are we doing? We have a lot of young players with talent and we added some good new Freeagents with talent, but they get no time.
It's also not good to always shake the rooster up that much...adding 7 new faces every year makes a strong start hard ( I know this is another argument, but I wanted to point that out^^).
So I am not a coach or a person who understands this business game very well but I hope and pray that we keep focusing on our young guys and stop trying to make those senseless playoff pushes right now!
Patience is the damn key to success and it starts with building up what you have!
So give Price, McRoberts ( I love him, don't know why^^), Rush, Hibbert, Head, Hansbrough and Solo more minutes and give them some good training, means somebody should talk to them a lot and get into their heads to focus on important things like fouls or confidence when shooting ...!!! Together with Danny, Dahntay and perhaps Dunleavy they are the future to build around!
So let's see what you guys think about my first thread
Go Pacers, even today!
