    I can see the Pacers finishing as the #2 seed in the East and facing Miami in the Eastern Conference Finals. This could be the first Finals appearance in 13 years.

    I like our chances at the 2 seed this year. Boston, Philly, New York, and Brooklyn have to play each other more often, while we play our weak division without Rose. I hope Boston gets the 4 seed and Chicago gets the 5 seed or 8 seed so we can avoid all three of our biggest competitors until the conference finals! That would be ideal.

    The Pacers are relying heavily on some unproven players. They are looking for breakout years from all of their bench. That's a tall order.

    not really... I think the only unproven player really is Paul George.

    We know what we'll get from Hill, Granger, West, Hibbert and Green
    "So, which one of you guys is going to come in second?" - Larry Bird before the 3 point contest. He won.

    We'll have to wait and see, I think we're going to have another 2nd round exit though. No games were played yet, but we didn't really take care of our issues from last year, and I don't think our starters really fit next to each other.

    Well then I don't know what starting unit does fit together, considering our's had a higher win% and +/- all year long than Miami's did, and that includes the playoffs (comparing starters vs. starters in a vacuum, and was by all metrics one of the leagues most dominant. All available data implies that our bench was what was weak, not our starters, not by a long shot, and our bench is what we've tried to improve. At the very least there isn't really anything solid that substantiates the claim that our starters were the vulnerable ones, quite the contrary actually.
