    Default Oh Snap! Pacers worst team?

    http://msn.foxsports.com/nba/lists/F...photo=11508130

    Indiana Pacers

    Indy's ownership spent years clearing the roster of talented knuckleheads. Who's left? Nice guys who are marginal NBA players, like Tyler Hansbrough (pictured). Danny Granger is the only reliable scorer. The big men are stiffs. Mike Dunleavy can't stay healthy and T.J. Ford can't get out of the doghouse. So what did the Pacers do? They drafted college basketball's most talented knucklehead, Lance Stephenson. Here we go again.


    Wow, this writer contridicts himself here. He blames the Pacers for getting "nice guys who are marginal NBA players" , then blasts us for taking a chance on Lance

    I hope God shines bright on Lance and he is an all-star

    I understand people wanting to be excited and building up the lone bright spot, but I do wish we'd take the hyperbole down a notch.

    I know we're not a good team, yet (hopefully). But if the Pacers are the worst team, then what about the 9 teams that have much worse W-L record? Worse than the worst?

    I interpret that as the Pacers being the fifth-worse team, being trailed by Detroit, the Nets, Toronto and Minnesota.
    Why do the things that we treasure most, slip away in time
    Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
    Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?
    Till we fall away in our own darkness, a stranger to our own hearts
    And life itself, rushing over me
    Life itself, the wind in black elms,
    Life itself in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you

    Which seems about right.

    Actually, I think he was saying we spent all this time cleaning house, then we turn around and theoretically, sign the same type player we spent years getting rid of. Kinda like throwing out all the fat filled food in your pantries in a an effort to lose weight, then going to the store and buying a box of twinkies. I can see the writer's point about it being more than a bit contradictory.
    Hey! What're you kicking me for? You want me to ask? All right, I'll ask! Ma'am, where do the high school girls hang out in this town?

    Because until we win, whenever somebody makes a list of the 5 worst teams we'll correctly be a part of it.

    On paper, maybe. But when it's all said and done, we'll probably finish between 10th and 14th, as usual.

    I don't buy into this writer's thinking all that much. I get what he's trying to say - that among all 15 Pacers currently on the roster only one stands out as a bonified bright spot w/talent above all the rest (Granger) - but fails to take into account that the team's front court was riddled w/injuries (Hansborough/Foster) and the only talent we had left were Murphy and Solo...not very endearing is it?

    Add in Dunleavy not being at full strength...you just can't win many ball games without a dominate front court and only one consistent scoring threat. (Murphy's 3-pt game not withstanding, he's a PF who plays more like a SG but clearly isn't going to net 20 ppg.) Moreover, I'd hardly call Dunleavy injury prone. It's the first time in his career that he's been off the court for effectively what equated to a season.

    If they can keep their starting five healthy whomever that will be when the season starts, I think the Pacers have a very good chance of drastically improving this year. Only time will tell...

    I feel ya but

    Should we dilude ourselves into thinking Carmelo is comming here next year (glorious cap space)

    I mean its kinda all we got now, and after we took chances on Williams/White it would onml;y be karma if this worked out

    I like how they played judge, jury, and executioner on Lance Stephenson before he has even played a minute or got in the mix of NBA life. I can't stand anything FOX anyway! In the mean time....WIN GAMES AND SHUT PEOPLE UP!!

    May the Lord be with Lance...

    This writer just proves what an idiot he is. Mediocore players with a nice guy image and he refers to Hansbrough? Hans is our toughest player and, if he ever heals 100%, he will be the most menacing PF in the league IMO. People talked about him lacking NBA size, and on the court he looked bigger and stronger than most players.

    God I hope Hansbrough returns so all this ****ing haters eat their crow. The guy is a starting NBA PF if he can stay healthy, and probably the most energetic, strongest, and phyiscal one out there.

    5th is about right I think, they always finish higher because of the stupid season ending winning streaks

    We drafted Lance in the second round. IMHO anyone who criticizes a team for any pick made in the second round is an idiot. Second round picks are essentially expendable, that's where you're supposed to take chances on questionable players.

    Yeah I didnt understand the Lance bashing as it was the 40th overall pick in the draft.

    Its funny how, or rather sad, we have fallen completely out of relevant status inthe NBA

    Agree.

    And at the same time, anyone thinking a guy taken #40 is going to successfully convert to a new position and solve the team's PG problems before he ever plays in a single regular season game (heck, before he even makes the roster as many second-round picks don't) is also an idiot.

    I'm in support of giving the kid a chance to play in the NBA. Shooting guard first, maybe PG down the road. Let's not set the kid up to fail with absurd expectations for a second-round SG that should be college sophomore.

    What I don't want on PD is people being hateful or otherwise 'unpleasant' to someone else. Religious or political commentary/debate/arguments can and often do lead to something like that, and I do not wish for that.

    With that said, I don't see 90's comment to be the kind that would/should cause a problem....
