Thread: Who's not jumping ship right now?

  1. #1

    Default Who's not jumping ship right now?

    Anyone else or am I alone? Seriously it's five games and everyone is on suicide watch. Let this play out. Let them adjust. Let Roy adjust. There's a ton of pressure on Paul George right now. Let him get his game adjusted to being the man. It's not something that happens overnight. You guys really sound like a bunch of bandwagon fans right now. It's ridiculous. When this team rolls off 8 wins in a row and everyone starts talking about how hot they are, I dont want to hear from all you people jumping ship.

    As much as the 4th quarter sucked, the other three quarters looked great as far as the starters are concerned. As long as this team can get into the playoffs, and Danny is able to get back in time to get up to speed, I suspect our bench will be much improved with Lance leading the way instead of playing with the starters.

    i see where you're coming from, but i'm still concerned. you said let roy adjust. adjust to what, exactly? he shouldn't be still needing to adjust to anything at this point. in regards to paul, his mindset shouldn't be one of "adjusting", but rather him jumping on this opportunity and show us what he can really do.

    Moderation in life is always best.

    Nobody should be jumping ship yet (I don't know that I've actually read anyone say that yet) but being nonchalant is equally bad.

    Thare real problems here, nothing that can't be corrected but they do exist.

    Tonight was the first real game where I felt like we played well more than we played poorly and we still lost this game.

    It's been frustrating so far, no doubt. There are real issues that need to be addressed.

    But the sky-is-falling tone is a bit much IMO. It is very early in the season and it's not crazy to expect some growing pains for this franchise with new personnel and a young coach.

    With winning come expectations and the team isnt living up to them. For me it's not even about winning or losing at this point, it's about a dismal offense and a lack of adjustment and finesse. Taking jump shots deep in the shot clock or giving the ball to West to do anything with it is not what I expected going into the season.

    But yes, the JOB times were worse, so I'll stick around.

    A couple of you hit the nail on the head already for me... The first 42 minutes or so of the Atlanta game (and Atlanta is gonna be a playoff team) we played really well... Offense looked good with plenty of ball movement. It is going to take awhile and be real rocky until DG33 gets back...

    I'm waiting for 10 games to go by, however I was encouraged that we looked a little better last night. The reliance on the 3 point shot and Roy's problems in the post may not let me get to 10 games before I start looking for a shower rod or a ledge to jump off of!

    Like many have said, I don't think anybody is jumping ship. If they did, they wouldn't post here lol.

    We've had some moderate success here recently for the first time in yrs, it'd be a shame to go back down the toilet. I'm not saying it's happening, but our struggles aren't seeming to get much better. We played the best we have all season and still lost in a bad way.

    After expecting so much, it's reasonable to be disappointed in how the team is playing/coaching. But as die hard Pacer fans; jumping ship isn't an option for most of us.

    So Roy needs to adjust? to what? I thought they didn't trade either one of the starters and decided to keep the starting unit intact so they could have "continuation", yes "continuation" any time they interview somebody from the Pacers front office that is their excuse to pretty much doing nothing in the off season.

    I completely agree with this. It was bad at times during this game, but at least I saw things they can correct, work on, address. It was different this game, that run in 3rd quarter maybe showed a glimpse of what they are capable of. Going inside out, attacking on the break, hustling defene. That was the most encouraging quarter of the year, imo.

    Side note: I might start a thread about how posters are over reacting to the posters who are overacting to the play of the team. I'm worried, however, that this triggers an infinite amount threads about overacting and creates a wormhole that disrupts the space/time continuim and destroys us all...... on second thought, I probably won't start a new thread.

    these are getting incredibly dull
    Yet your contribution to this thread was so incredibly insightful. It works both ways. But you still find it necessary to come in an (and by your own very words) incredibly dull thread to post. Your logic is incredibly flawed.

    To the op. No im still giving them time to work it out. Some things that need to change are becoming evidently clear they might not ever happen. Mainly Hibbert and PGs intensity, and Frank Vogels coaching.

    A 2-3 record is no reason to jump ship. Okay, so we're off to a slow start, but I have faith in the players we have and Vogel and his staff. I know they're not happy with their play. Last night I saw some pretty good improvement in their offensive flow. They need to tighten up defensively too, but that's not hard to do. I think by game 10 we'll start to click.
    There are two types of quarterbacks in the league: Those whom over time, the league figures out ... and those who figure out the league.

    Good thing I didn't change my sig.
    Welcome to Pacers Digest! New around here? Here are three tips for making the forum a great place to talk about Pacers basketball.

    • Log in. Even if you want to read instead of post, it's helpful because it lets you:
    • Change your signature options. You can hide all signatures by choosing "Settings" (top right) then "General Settings" (middle left) and unchecking the box "Show Signatures" (in the "Thread Display Options" area).
    • Create an ignore list. I know it may seem unneighborly. But you're here to talk about the Pacers, not argue with someone who's just looking for an argument. Most of the regular users on here make use (at least occasionally) of the "Ignore" feature. Just go to "Settings" -> "Edit Ignore List" and add the names.

    Enjoy your time at PD!
