    Default What will you look for ?

    Camp opens in a few short weeks.:

    What are some of the things you will be looking at as the pre-season gets closer.

    O'Neal's mobility ?

    Jackson's range ?

    Tinsley's condition ?

    Harrison's positioning ?

    Bender's place in the rotation?

    I'm interested to see how the rookie Pacemates blend in with the more experienced veteran Pacemates and whether or not they will be able make up for some key losses....

    Can Pollard ever hope to contribute?

    If not, can Harrison?
    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!

    I don't know, he's injury prone.

    I think he can still block out effectively, but its awfully hard for a "one-eyed saxaphonist" to actually get the rebound.
    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

    "Camp opens in a few short weeks.:"



    "What are some of the things you will be looking at as the pre-season gets closer.

    O'Neal's mobility ?

    Jackson's range ?

    Tinsley's condition ?

    Harrison's positioning ?

    Unless I notice something's wrong, I won't really pay attention to JO's mobility because I'm assuming he'll be fine with a summer's rest.

    Same with Tinsley's conditioning, I expect him to be in last year's shape if not better.

    Now, Jackson, Bender, and Harrison I want to watch a lot. I have LP, but I have the impression I don't get to use it until November so I won't be seeing more than one preseason game on TV But whatever one they choose, I'll really be watching those three. I want to see if Harrison looks any good yet, what Jackson may or may not bring, and how Bender looks. I'm looking forward to it.

    Foster's 10-12 foot jump shot or lack thereof.

    Improvement in Foster's defense of "power" centers. He's gotten better every year. Let's hope he's gotten *alot* better with Shaq in the conference.

    I can't help but feel that those two things are major keys to the season.

    That, and improved outside shooting.

    That big shiny trophy sitting next to the other two trophies in the Palace of Auburn Hills.

    That and the handicapped parking spaces to see what kind of cars half the Piston bench drives (see, I gloat but then I throw you a bone. One for me, one for you.).

    I agree with Doug...I'm really counting on Foster this year.

    Unfortunately, I think we have to.
