    I have an expectation that without Danny at all this season we are a 5-8 seed that has a 35% chance of making it into the second round.

    If Danny is limited even in the playoffs I say we are a 4-8 seed and a 65% chance of making it into the playoffs.

    If Danny averages what he did last year going into the playoffs then I say we have a 65% chance of going into the ECF.

    So if we make it into the ECFs I will be thrilled. I expect us to win the division, home court advantage in the opening round. And at the least make it a competitive 2nd round series.

    I can agree with you. IN the playoffs you cannot overcome injuries. In the regular season effort, teamwork can get you by, but the playoffs you need your best players.

    The only way this season (and the near future) has a chance to be considered a success, is if Paul George becomes this team's clear best player.

    If he doesn't, we're the Hawks.

    I don't think it can or will happen this season. Just too soon. In theory it might happen in the future, but he isn't ready to become that this season.

    If that is the case, this season is a wash. We'll be a good team, not even close to contending for a title. That's what we are until we get a better, best player.

    And I hope we are not looking at a Mike Dunleavy/Troy Murphy/JO/Ford/Tinsley situation all over again with Danny and everybody waiting for that contract to expire so they can "finally do something".

    I certainly agree with you. But I still enjoy the season regardless

    It looks like a lot of people want ECF and would be disappointed by a 1st round exit.

    As Pacers fans we have been here before we have seen a team take the leap and that team went on to be competitive for a very long time. I hope we are headed back into perennial title contender territory again, that being said it sure would be nice to win the whole thing some time.
