The Pacers' trainwreck is quickly coming to an end and the third year of Bird's self-professed three-year plan is almost over. How do you feel about the franchise's progression in those three years? Is it okay that the Pacers are on the verge of missing the playoffs for the third year in a row and effectively situated in fringe lottery limbo? Or should we be expecting more by now?
Honest question. I see some folks on here defending the record and play as a result of the youth movement...but hasn't that youth movement been going on for a while now? And isn't the idea of a three-year plan that the Pacers would fare substantially better in the third year of that plan than the second and first?
