    Mike Brown is horrible! Don't even bring up the back to back 60 win seasons. Lebron did it all for him.
    Agreed.

    I'm sorry Mike Brown lovers, but I just don't see it.

    He coached teams to 60 wins with LeBron James. That doesn't impress me. He made it to one NBA Finals with LeBron James. They got swept.

    Why oh why are people still impressed with the guy?

    And don't say LeBron had bad teammates in Cleveland, because he didn't.

    Those guys struggled without LeBron, but take Danny off our team and see how well we do. Probably not very well. But that doesn't mean we have bad players either.

    No Mike Brown please.

    I'd prefer Frank, but I'd explore other options. But I'd sure as hell rather have Frank than Mike Brown.
    Stop quoting people I have on ignore!

    relatively speaking. lebron had the most overrated role players known in the league. and danny granger is no lebron, as you know im sure, but thats comparing apples and oranges. Lebron left because he said if this is all Gilbert is giving me than im audi5000.

    But yes, mike brown is pumped way to much in here. Ill take vogel 8 days of the week over mike brown.

    Call me crazy, but if we can not get more support then what we got this season, I suggest we make the moves needed to catch the average fan's attention. My idea:

    -Trade Hibbert & DC to Memphis for Zach & Conely
    -Trade Danny & B.Rush to the Clippers for Gordon
    -Trade Hansbrough for B.Miller & C.Lee
    -Trade P.George to Utah for G.Hayward & 2nd
    -Trade Price, 1st to SAS for G.Hill
    -Trade Lance & future 2nd to Atlanta for J.Teague
    -Trade Posey & D.Jones to Dallas for S.Marion
    -Sign/Trade (S&T Foster & future pick) for G.Ogen from Portland
    -Sign C.Landry & J.Jeffries as FA's
    -Draft M.Howard in '11 2nd
    -Draft T.Zeller in '12 2nd
    -Retain L.Bird, Replace Morway with K.Pritchard
    -Hire Brad Stephens to coach

    New Roster Indiana fans can really get behind:
    Oden, B.Miller, McRoberts
    Zach, C.Landry, M.Howard, T.Zeller ('12)
    G.Hayward, S.Marion, J.Jeffries
    E.Gordon, C.Lee
    Conely, G.Hill, J.Teague

    you are underrating team chemistry. and i think PG has a much high ceiling than hayward, plus hes a much better defender.

    Mayo, Josh Smith, and Varejao. Don't think we could do that without surrendering some big time assets, but it would be awesome.
    I love the Varejao option, hed be our own Joakim Noah, but if cleveland didnt lock him up for like 50mil, I'd be all over that option.

    Gosh I hope Bird or someone comes out with some rumors soon. I get too giddy watching all these other teams play.

    To draft Kenneth Faried, and for him to become the next ON-COURT Dennis Rodman, skillset wise.
    Thats a great comparison. And he was a 27th overall pick. So definitely a good shot. Still cant believe Rodman played at 6'7" when he played LIKE 7'2"

    If I were Bird I would stress ALL my options. Literally make an offer to every team with a player that can help us improve.

    Mainly a SG that can create his own shot, especially at the end of the game.
    And a Big MAN that can play PF with Hibbs and C with Hansbrough.

    Kaman
    Josh Smith
    Eric Gordon
    OJ Mayo
    Al Jefferson
    Derrick Favors
    Zach Randolph
    Kevin Love
    Heck throw the kitchen sink at Dwight Howard or Chris Paul.

    Well lets see....
    While there are players listed I would LOVE to have on this team (EJ), the fact that EVERY player is from Indiana should have been a hintn don't ya think?. It is kind of fun to see what this state could field as a tean, No? Anyway, some things should appreciated for what they are without having to be in green.

    I'd love Josh Smith too but the Pacers were 5th in the league in rebounding during the regular season. He would help out defensively though.

    He's a pouter when things don't go his way. That's the only thing that worries me.
    Pacers were 17th in offensive rebounding percentage and 15th in defensive rebounding percentage.

    Very much an average rebounding team last year. Josh Smith would definitely help that.

    JR Smith and Tyson Chandler and a good young PF at #15... Trey Thompkins of Georgia or Jordan Williams of Maryland and a scoring wing threat in the second: Jimmy Butler or Marshon Brooks. If not, maybe Skeen of VCU. Justin Harper or Mike Davis might also be someone to look at.

    I would think Mayo is ahead of JR Smith in Bird's head and OJ is someone to add to our young core going forward but JR is not that old at 26. Chandler's 28, so the next contract will likely be his last. Caron Butler might be someone to plug in at SG, but he's more of a SF and he's getting up there in age for a wing (31). JRich might be a consideration as well.

    Chandler's last contract was almost $13 mill per and JR's $6 mill. I would offer Tyson 5 years at 13 per on average and maybe a 5 year contract at JR for ~7 per. Would that get it done? I guess the CBA might screw things up and getting Mayo on his rookie contract ($5.6 mill next year and qualifying offer of 7.4 after that).

    DC2/AJ/Lance... potentially some minutes at PG for OJ.
    JR/PG or PG/Mayo/Rush/Dahntay
    DG/PG/Posey
    Chandler/Tyler
    Roy/Chandler/Foster

    Plus our draft picks.

    Maybe bring Foster back on the cheap, if that's possible. 3 years at $4 million?

    Rush looks like trade fodder for Mayo or if we sign JR.

    Magnum or Stanko for the end of the bench?

    Id love to get Chandler, but doubt he wants to come to Indy after playing for Dallas. He is getting older and wants the best chance to win a championship.

    That team in clevlend was bulit around him very well shooters and defenders. Miami isnt bulit around him the way the Cavs were they were a perfect fit. Plus you can only win so many games regular season is pretty irrlevant.

    The way things are shaping up in Orlando and New Orleans, I'm at the point where I say save our capspace for 2012 unless something too-good-to-pass-up comes our way (doubtful).

    Signing either Chris Paul or Dwight Howard by themselves would likely be neigh impossible, but if we're in a position where we have the money to sign them both, I can see it happening. The incentive of them teaming up to form their own super-duo, with a solid supporting cast to boot, might be enough to bring them here.

    because mo williams and varejao both go into the perfect supporting cast for lebron. Wade and Lebron both had to sacrifice so much. Both are both in supporting roles now. No true star of the team. They have never been in that situation. Mike brown lost control of his team in the 2010 playoffs

    Honestly, I think that might be it. Now that we have roster and cap space.

    Depends on if Memphis has change their stance or opinion of him? Even with Gay hurt, he's coming off the bench behind Tony Allen and Sam Young. Memphis has Battier in the rotation, as well as rookie Xavier Henry to groom.

    If they want to re-sign Marc Gasol, they'll need all the money they can get.

    1st round pick and the Pacers absorbing Mayo's contract without having to send a player back is a real possibility

    Watching the Spurs/Grizzlies series, I would really like to get Marc Gasol! haha can we outbid the Grizzlies to not match?

    I do expect the Pacers to try and get Mayo. I think they'll like at Tyson Chandler, but he may take less to stay in Dallas.

    I expect Landry and Big Baby Davis to get looks from the Pacers.

    If Nene doesn't get extension with the Nuggets I think he will be in the cards

    I think Foster will be brought back.

    I think Dalembert could get a look depending on asking price

    I'm sure with the CBA there could be quite a few trades available.

    It's going to be nerve wrecking, I can promise you that

    -I see us moving our pick for a vet (Mayo?)
    -I hate Kahn, but I am still interested in A.Randolph (young, long, PF)
    -B/u C is need, esp for a defender (Dally, Chandler?)
    -I could see a bigger PG/ combo G (I like Stuckey)
    -A vet b/u 3 (S.Battier is a defender, shooter, & a LEADER! He is also a FA!)
    -I see us holding on to some $ as IMO we find 1 "bigger name", not 2.
    -Interested to see what Posey's value could be (exp).
    -I could see us "absorbing a contract" to get a player.

    If Dahntay is causing issues, as has been speculated, I would love to get Battier to replace him.

    I'm not high on OJ Mayo, but if all it took to get him was the 15th pick, I'd consider it.

    I would love for him to be our new backup 3 with Dunleavy gone. Love it.

    I can't believe I didn't think of him earlier; I'll add him to my list!
