guys i have loved the Blue and Gold since the days of Vern Fleming, Chuck Person, Detlef Schremph and so on. i will continue to support this team. but im not going to sugarcoat this at all.
and before we everyone starts with the Granger is out threads. look at last seasons Bulls team who continued to win in spite of missing their MVP.
for all those so excited to see Larry Bird leave, well here is what you get. this is practically the same team as last year and not much better. Bird prob left because Simon is not willing to do what it takes to get this team to the next level. this team will still compete but this season is not going to be the year we upset Miami and win a Trophy.
* for all the hype Paul George had during the offseason, its prob gonna to stay HYPE and not translate to the court. Paul is timid and careless with the ball at times. he will improve but he is no where near being the X factor for this team.
* Hibbert = S-O-F-T
your shot may not be falling Roy but that doesnt mean you can get burned on the other end last night and then sulk after everytime Duncan makes you look like his ***** there is one constant in Basketball a player can control and thats DEFENSE. Hibberts shot may not be falling but he played like as S O F T as possible last night. starting to look like Bosh out there Roy.
in fact Bird had it right.
THIS FLIPPIN TEAM IS S-O-F-T.
and that falls on Vogel. everyone loves and respects Vogel because lets face it.. anything is better than JOB and his madness. but this is a business and this style of play is getting tiresome quick.
if not for George Hill last night we get blown out by 40.
if Vogel does not right the ship soon ship him out and let Shaw take over.
plain and simple.
THIS TEAM IS S O F T (w the exception of West Hill Hansbro).
for those of you comparing former pacer glory days.. Roy Hibbert would soil himself if he faced the DAVIS BROS and Big Smooth.
