Thread: Can we win a Title?

  1. #1

    Default Can we win a Title?

    We have signed D.J. Augustin and Gerald Green and traded for Ian Mahinmi who IMO have all strengthened our bench from last year.
    1. George Hill/DJ Augustin
    2. Paul George/Lance Stephenson
    3. Danny Granger/Gerald Green
    4. David West/Tyler Hansbrough
    5. Roy Hibbert/Ian Mahinmi

    In your opinion can this line up win a title?

    I like our roster, I like our guys, but no.

    I hate to say it, but the reality is you need an Alpha Dog to take it all.

    Yes we can. I belive our team and our coach. But its highly doubtful now because we didnt played any game yet.


    Last season when we lead 2-1 against Miami in series, I was thinking probable. But then I realize after how we let Heat beat us with same ****ing plays over and over game after game, I realize our team and especially coach was raw for that level. This year they ll be ready I hope.

    No. But with these changes we may be able to come close to last years record.....

    I see that alot of people on here don't like our chances to win a title, yet we were two games from beating the NBA champions from last year... I think the only reason we lost that series was because they got too over confident really. Had they just kept their focus and continued to play how they were, we would have taken it, and now, with what I believe to be an even slightly better roster, plus the starting five being together for that full, PLUS coming up on a real season that we shouldn't put ourselves out of the picture to win it all just yet. I'm confident they can do it.

    I would love to think so, but reality kicks in and unless PG24 turns into Kobe Bryant our roster won't win a championship. Maybe in 3 years if we are able to keep our core.

    Yes, are we the favorites, no, but we most certainly could assuming we learn from this past season.

    You never know what can happen if they get on a hot streak. It's not like we're the bottom feeders of the league.

    No, not really that close IMO. Detroit is the only championship team that has had a roster that even remotely resembles the pacers roster as far as talent & star power. However, Detroit was better at at least 4 of the starting positions.

    Well, unfortunately, Miami looks to have improved as well. A lot more firepower off their bench. So no, but the Central is there for the taking, and I don't think the ECF is out of the question.

    I don't see why people are writing us out so early, we were two games from beating the eventual NBA champions in last years playoffs, which I believe we lost because of cockyness. Had they kept focused and continued playing as they were, we could have seen them bring it home last year... That being said, with what I believe to be a decently improved roster, more playoff experience, more chemistry for the starting five, and a FULL season I believe that it is entirely possible for the pacers to bring home the hardware this year. Don't write us off so early.

    Second round, ad Scola and we probably have a chance to make it to the ECF.

    Detroit had an advantage at the PG position, but that is about all.
