To think that bench players don't make a difference in winning or losing is being out of touch with basketball. The Pacers starters out score their opponents starters more then about any team they played last year, but the bench couldn't maintain. I'm not saying that a team doesn't have to have a star, but to win they need each other and those great players become stars on the rise to championships. I think we have a couple great players...the team just needs to rise and with the help of a better bench, they might just do that like others have.
    You can have a star and not win a championship. But you can't win a championship without a star. Unless, of course, you think 1/32 is good odds...

    We don't run an offense that gets the PG assists!

    I don't miss the players we got rid of as much as I miss Danny Granger. Take away any one of a team's best players on short notice, and there's going to be a bit of an adjustment period. Pacers will either saddle up or they won't. It's too early to tell either way right now, but if we continue to play like we did tonight we already know the answer.

    Losing DC is a downgrade. I think it's apparent DC is significantly better than Augustine. So far, Dahntay/Barbosa seems as though they would be more solid than Green but the verdict is still out. Mahimni is an upgrade over Lou. The major issue here is the loss of DC.
    Agree 100%.
    IMO we gave away our best point guard.
    Thank you Jeff.

    I don't but that whole Danny Granger is out excuse. What are you guys going to say that use this excuse when Granger comes back and we are still getting killed by the elite teams?

    Which is why there's little point in people wanting him back. Augustin is better than he looks right now, too.

    We weren't getting killed by elite teams last season, so idk why we would now--as long as Danny is healthy.

    We can't make predictions when we haven't seen this current team play WITH Granger. We have no way of knowing what to expect, good or bad.

    If we had DC, he'd be miserable coming off the bench, and he wouldn't have made a difference last night. He may not have made much of a difference in any of the other games.

    Does anybody remember how terrible Lou played in his first games for the Pacers? Yet, he started playing a lot better eventually and grew on many of us.

    It's often hard for players to have the confidence they need to play to their potential as they figure out how they fit into a new team's personnel and system. You shouldn't judge our new players on the basis of their first few games.

    I don't remember that. He hustled, sure. But he SUCKED. Every once in a while he made some positive things happen with his hustle, but his lack of an NBA game did not grow on me. If he didn't have NBA size, none of us would even know his name.
    Why do the things that we treasure most, slip away in time
    Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
    Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?
    Till we fall away in our own darkness, a stranger to our own hearts
    And life itself, rushing over me
    Life itself, the wind in black elms,
    Life itself in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you

    The funny thing is, he doesn't even have NBA size. Certainly not even close for a Center.

    I had a bad feeling when all of our new bench players were all young, unproven guys. Contending teams have experienced and proven guys coming off their bench. Think Sam Perkins being signed in 1998
    David "And One" West

    But Green can dunk really well... Don't contending teams normally have that off the bench?

    Lou didn't get a fair shake here. He is a PF shoved in a C position. Plus him and Tyler tried to do the same thing all the time and just ended up in each others way. Lou's best play came when we was on the floor the same time as West.

    Fair enough. However, relative to me, he has NBA size!!

    Those are the exact things we should have done. Many will say that Kaman wouldn't have signed but he only got 1 year from Cuban for 8 mil. We could have offered him a longer deal on a winning team. We were the first team he talked to, we should have at least put an offer on the table.

    Augistin and Collison aren't even in the same league right now. Collison is playing like an absolute stud in Dallas while Augistin can't even get 15 minutes a game here. They aren't even close right now. I thought Augistin was supposed to be as good/better? Dumping DC is something the Pacers will regret deeply, if they haven't already.

    Hill is looking good for us, and DC didn't want to come off the bench....but I'm starting to think maybe we should have just dealt with his attitude bout coming off the bench for the season.
