    Default Im tired of all this we need more time..

    These are basketball players that make a living doing what they love...Miami played the atlanta hawks the other night and lost at home. indiana goes into miami and stunk the gym up bad... then miami is without lebron and d-wade and go into atlanta and win in 3ot..... Im tired of all this, we need more time.. every team had the same amount of time to prepare... we either have it or we dont......Im not impressed at all to this point.we could have easily lost to cleveland also... no more excuses go out and play and shut up.

    I totally disagree. It takes time for a team to gel with new players and a new coach, more so than the teams who had few roster changes and retained their coaches. It's understandable to me that it will take us some time to see what our team is fully capable of.

    Nope. This isn't the type of team that just gets up out of bed every morning and destroys other teams. We need time.

    All I can say is wow. You honestly think we have had ample time to gel with all the new pieces? We are 4-2 and all this "sky is falling" garbage is making me not want to visit PD for a while. I understand we haven't been playing championship ball but please.

    Go check out Dallas' schedule from last year. From Jan 6 - Jan 20 they lost 6 in a row and 7 of 8. They didn't hit their stride until the playoffs.

    You people are ridiculous.

    Huh? Maybe they should have broken up the big three in Miami last year when they started slow. Every team in the NBA will get their doors blown off of them at one time or another during the year. Especially with the condensed schedule. You gotta be kidding with this at this point in the season.

    If this team was the same team as last year, with only minor changes, and with a coach that was here all of last season instead of changing head coaches mid season I would agree. The facts are though this team went through some major changes, and has and almost rookie head coach who only had 2 weeks to work with his players before the season started. It is not a surprise that they haven't played as well as their talent indicates.

    Yeah, I get tired of reality too. Unfortunately (?) that doesn't make it go away.

    Then shouldn't it be:

    I'm tired of this, "we need more time."

    His first post was pretty confusing. I think he thinks we don't, but I was editing his thread title for my purposes.

    Atlanta, a very talented and veteran team, lost to Miami without Lebron and Wade and on a back to back night. Now that is embarrassing.

    We got blown out by Miami with LeBron. Miami is great team.

    We shot ourselves in the foot with dumb TOs and missing shots. TOs are going to happen with a team that needs more time to gel. Not sure why we are missing so many shots, but we'll head back to the norm here soon. No need to panic.

    He is saying if we're not winning now then our team is no good. Basically he thinks we shouldn't need any more time.

    Besides the time some teams may need due to their makeup/roster and coaching changes, this compressed schedule is taking inconsistency to a whole new level. Very difficult for teams to keep consistent levels of energy and avoid awful nights in terms of shooting, defense, rebounding. I really don't like this, I'd rather have a season with a few less games.

    i hear this each and every year and i am sick of it. vogel has been coach or assistant coach here long enough for the players to know what his system is.. do you think vogel could bring in a system to make the players ponder and say wow we dont know how to operate this system? you all act as if these players dont know anything about basketball.....It dont take months and months to learn vogel program. so, i could care less about quotation marks...c?

    Here come all the fairweather fans. The forums are starting to feel like what the 2KSports NBA 2K12 forums all over again. Random people or Newbies posting threads about nothing or just to complain. Where were all these people when we were suffering during the JOB years? Now that the Pacers have high expectations this season, suddenly we have all these people who want to voice their opinion????

    All h*ll is going to break loose if we make to the playoffs and lose in the first round.

    You act as though the people on the other side are high school kids. They're not, they're professionals as well. A lot of them are professionals that have the same coaching staff, and most of the same players. Even if Vogel was here last year, there are still different coaches on the staff. The familiarity is an edge early. Why? The more familiar you are with what's happening the quicker you can respond without thinking. Even a split second of thought in the NBA can be the difference between succeeding and not.

    Besides that, for ****s sakes, we're 4-2. If we were 0-6 or 1-5 I'd get it. We have one of the best records in the East, and you're acting like we're the damn Wizards or Kings.
