    Default Kneejerk reaction thread 2012-13

    I'm going to riot if Lance Stephenson isn't chosen for the all-star team this year

    Clearly last year was a fluke and Gerald Green will be looking to join the D-league once we can sign a free agent to replace him

    We can clearly tell Paul George is the player he's going to be from here out. He's already 22 years old and there's no chance he's going to get any better throughtout his career. Hopefully we trade him at the end of the season for draft picks

    Vogel can't run an offense. We need to start a petetion addressed to the Dallas Mavericks to let Jim O'Brien take over as head coach in Indiana ASAP

    Roy Hibbert's contract is the worst in Pacers history. There's no chance he's going to get better this season offsensively. It's clear he will continue to shoot 34% the remainder of the season. No surprise after he's clearly done nothing but eat cheetos and watch Gangham Style this summer. We'd better trade him for second round picks.

    Just messing around, and that was the first thing that came to mind with respect to the post(er)s that have been so dramatic and adamant about the doom that the franchise faces. I can imagine them reacting in this fashion.

    After pre-season:

    Granger is out? Big deal, have you seen Green play? He can easily make up the 16-18 points we'll miss from Granger. In fact, he's probably better.

    Now:

    Wow, Green is the worst free agent signing of the summer. He clearly doesn't belong in the NBA...D-League at best.

    5 games later...

    We roll back the clock to what we had last year and dump all these "upgrades" because they all suck. Oh, and Frank sucks and Hibbert sucks so bad he couldn't come off the bench for the Bobcats.

There was a brief, and very decisive, and altogether unprecedented, outburst of genuine officiating, and it was directed at the best player in the world, and that, my dear young person, simply is not done."

    Why Vogel hasn't quit or been sacked yet?
    Roy should also tear up his max contract today.

    I do hope Vogel is on the hot seat.

    Pacers are a very good team to play this badly. More importantly, you can't win back fans when the team looks like garbage out on the floor. Even if they win games, it's just not fun to watch.

    I say all this and I really like Vogel. But something has to give, and for me, Vogel just isn't a head coach right now.

    SVG or Sloan.
    Lance + Starting SG = Awesome

    Now really free Lance!

    3 team trade:

    IND gets: Monta Ellis, Mbah a Moute
    DEN gets: D. West, M. Dunleavy
    MIL gets: D. Gallignari, Tyler Hansbrough, C. Brewer

    Our offensive and frontcourt defensive woes are solved!

    I'm not sure if Denver wants West they already have somebody better, now if you think about doing an straight trade with the Bucks I think you can do Danny+Tyler for Monta+Gooden.

    You mean Faried? He's not better than West, can't score well enough. West would give them a consistent inside scoring threat.

    How many more games do we have to wait to change the name of this to just the "reaction thread 2012-2013"?

    You really think that sloppy tub changed his stubborn opinion of our team? He'd just be the new, improved JOB. JOB 2.0.
