    Default Brian Shaw/Asst Coach

    If Brian Shaw takes a head coaching position this offseason, how would you feel if we brought in Patrick Ewing as an assistant coach to work with Hibbert? With the turnover in Orlando, it's possible he'll be available, provided he doesn't get an offer to be a head coach.

    No. He's still the enemy.

    I think Hibbert's okay working with Timmy D. A guard-oriented coach would be more beneficial for PG, Lance, Hill and Collison.

    Sure, while we're at it let's bring in Larry Johnson to mentor Paul George, and John Starks in to show Hill the ropes.

    I'm not sure why anyone could seriously be opposed to Ewing working with Hibbert. However, I'd prefer our lead assistant to have exceptional in-game strategy and tactics, since Vogel may ​be lacking in this department.

    If Ewing is considered a Rick Carlisle-level X's and O's guy who can tighten up our offense, by all means. Whoever it is, that's the kind of assistant coach I'd like to see brought in.

    I'd love to bring an offensive minded coach with a penchant for coaching up guards (props for LoneGranger33). Pacers need to focus on a plan that can get our guards to actually get the ball to our bigs. Setting screens & pick and rolls...these are things that we struggle with. No one seems to know how to set a screen outside Foster. It's completely maddening.

    We should be working inside-out.

    Vogel's done a great job with the defense. Just need to continue to work on improvements, like learning how to more effectively tackle pick n rolls cause you know they will continue to try and take advantage of Hibbs. Also how to tackle screens...namely for PG.
    With the #3 pick in the 2015 draft, your Indiana Pacers!

    Who is considered the best offensive minded assistant available? I agree that the offensive flow seemed to be the "weak link" of the team.

    I would be all for bringing in Ewing to help Hibbert, and be an assistant coach. I don't know if he would qualify to replace Shaw though, I think that should go to a more head coach in the making type of coach. I don't know if that is Ewing or not, if it is by all means yes, if not look for someone else. I would like to see the team bring in a dedicated big man coach, and wing/guard coach.

    Either way I would prefer Shaw stays. Who knows, if a good enough situation doesn't open up he might decided to stay in order to get a chance to compete for a championship again.

    What is is and what was was. You look to the betterment of the team. That's what's important. The only thing that is important. If Ewing can help Hibbert improve to be a better player for the Pacers, you don't let personal feelings about Ewing thwart Hibbert's growth and improvement. JMOAA

    I'll take a wild guess you don't have any warm and fuzzy feelings for Starks and Oakly either.

    I really enjoy listening to Hubie. What a great BB mind he has. No doubt in my mind he could help Vogel as an ast coach.
