    Post What do Indiana Fans Actually Want?

    Hey guys, I've been a long time roamer of this forum, actually the first thing I do when i wake up is check the forum to see if there have been any Trades or new rumours. I really enjoy people's opinons on this forum and everything. But reading the board lately some people are bashing the moves Indiana made in the draft, the moves Pacers apparently should/shouldn't make.

    What I want to know is, What do you guys actually want? If you didn't want Paul George, who did you want? What player do you actually want us to go out and get?

    From what I have gathered from this forum lately is:

    George Hill wont be a good fit at PG
    Collison would be great but Okafor is to expensive
    We should trade Brandon Rush
    Not wait until '11 Free Agency

    Just want this thread to be about what fans actually WANT. Instead of saying what they dont want and what the Pacers shouldn't do. So maybe we can look back on this and say " Yeh This guy was right"

    I do think bringing in Collison would be a teriffic move, and I am hoping we can nab him in a Trade. Also Brandon Rush...lets just say wouldnt be dissapointed if he was involved in a trade.

    Indy fans want wins with likable players who don't get caught with guns at strip clubs on a regular basis.

    I want to build achampionship contender and not just a first round playoff team.

    So with that in mind, I'm keeping Hansbrough, George, Hibbert and Granger. I might let Rush go but the problem is his value is so low that you wont get anything back that makes moving him worthwhile.

    So I'm not selling low on him either.

    If that means one more year of TJ or Steve Blake or whomever at the point than so be it.

    I would also STRONGLY suggest to JOB that if we are eliminated from playoff contention by the All Star break again than I would prefer to see more of the young guys and less of Granger, Murphy and Dunleavy. NO meaningless late season surges that cost us a chance at Evan Turner and John Wall.

    So add in another top 6 pick next year to this core group and then factor in that we will have close to $40mm available in cap space than I think we can make a huge leap beginning with the 11-12 season.

    Do not sacrifice any of that for an extra 6-7 wins next year.

    I do not care what the players do off the court. If they come into the fieldhouse and play basketball the right way and get us to the playoffs again that is all I ask.

    Execute, play defense, get after the ball, stop shooting so many 3s, get rid of Murphy, find a PG, get a new coach, win games, make the playoffs, win some hardware.

    You need to be more specific. Whom do you want to execute?

    i want a young pg we can build around w/o giving up draft picks or rush. giving up draft picks and young players is not a wise move for a small market team.

    trading expirings is the best route to take and yet keeping one or two to stay under the salary cap by about 8 million if at all possible.

    You know the irony of this is that Sunday night I was on Interstate 65 northbound around Lebanon and was driving in a convoy of 3 Lynard Skynard semi's and was behind what I assume was the tour bus.

    Have you ever seen Hoosiers. It's pretty close to what Indiana fans want.

    Players that work their *** off to get better, that really complement each other in how they play. Players that play good defense, run well executed plays, & plenty of ball movement. They like the typical, pass first PG, a SG that can actually shoot and is willing to shoot, an bruising PF that grabs rebounds and will knock you down if he doesn't like you.

    That's about all I got.
    Lance + Starting SG = Awesome

    Now really free Lance!

    I want a quality starting point guard and I don't want to sacrifice Granger or Hibbert to get him. The quality PG I am thinking would be Collison, Tony Parker, Ricky Rubio a year from now, maybe someone else.

    Barring that, I at least want some PG to make the season a little more bearable, even if it isn't a long-term solution. This would be guys like Ramon Sessions or Steve Blake. Guys who are not the answer, but who are an upgrade for sure, until the answer comes along in a lottery pick next year or the year after.
    The poster "pacertom" since this forum began (and before!). I changed my name here to "Slick Pinkham" in honor of the imaginary player That Bobby "Slick" Leonard picked late in the 1971 ABA draft (true story!)
