I just hate watching this team play basketball.
we need to make a trade this team has stagnated we really do we lack people that can actually put the ball in the basket.
Counting down the days untill DJ Augustin's contract expires.
Great 2nd half defense, but our offense? REALLY???
Boy is this getting old...
This season has turned comically bad
Stop quoting people I have on ignore!
This team is quickly undoing everything they did last season. Keep this up, and they'll be out of Indiana in a few years.
Good God. That was awful.
"But, first, let us now praise famous moments, because something happened Tuesday night in Indianapolis that you can watch a lifetime’s worth of professional basketball and never see again. 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."
Oh, and the first person to waltz in here and say, "Guys, look at the positives: We played great defense! We held them to 74 points!" Deserves an immediate ban without any further questions.
If THIS doesn't show that SOMETHING needs to happen, change, or SOMETHING, idk what will.
We have one player in Hill who gives a damn. Lance couldn't get in, West gets angry nd stops rebounding when he can't get the ball offensively, our MAX C can't make a layup, lol at this point it's just laughable how bad we are.
We ****ing suck the refs did their best to let us win and people wondered why certain teams were ahead of use before the season on ESPN power ranking ...
I'm beginning to think that last year was A COMPLETE ABERRATION!!!! How did we go from being one game up on the eventual champs...to all-the-sudden playing like dookey in a matter of months? I know that it's only the beginning to a long season, but, we're looking HORRIBLE. We've only played two worthy teams and one of them put us in our place within minutes; and the other we lost. The rest of those teams were, IMO, considered garbage; yet, ALL OF THEM has made the games too competitive to my liking. I mean Charlotte frikkin' Bobcats broke their losing streak against us.
What happened to our "supposed" depth? The way this team is set up is that if someone goes into a funk, we have other players to help recover. But EVERYONE seems to be in a funk at the same time!
What happened with Paul working on his handles? He looks like he's about to lose the ball almost every time he dribbles.
What happened with Big Boy Roy? Getting past the first round, actually getting voted by the coaches into the all-star game, and getting a big contract wasn't enough to boost his morale? He's looking more soft than his rookie year. The next acting job he takes should be Lenny whenever someone decides to do a remake of "Of Mice and Men."
I know some people are down about Collison being traded. But face it, he wasn't gonna stay here coming off the bench. What I don't get is picking up DJ, whom looks like garbage on offense and defense.
What happened to our play-calling? Did every team just figured us out at once? We play like a pickup game at the YMCA.....just too many ISO's and hardly anyone understands that it's more successful to pass out of a triple-team to a wide friggin' open player than to shoot over two or more defenders and then wonder why everyone stands around the next couple plays. Plus, is it me, or when I watch the opponents or just any other game in particular, I notice better passing, better spacing, and it seems that everyone knows their roles?
Sorry for ranting, but I'm finding that getting this off my chest is somewhat therapeutic until I go to bed.
At least the combined record of teams we've beaten is better now: 4-16
No longer undefeated at home, but still undefeated against teams that are all-defeated.
Ready for a new coach.
It sucks Vogel isn't even on the hot seat.
He's losing every game by a couple points and is without the teams best player and team captain.
It's not his fault the front office gave him the worst bench ever and allowed Granger to wait all offseason to get surgery. I still can't believe they knew about this right after the playoffs and they didn't do the surgery during the offseason. This new front office is brain damaged.
Idc what you say, losing to a team coming off a triple overtime game and missing their best player is just a joke. Yes Roy missed a bunch of layups that proved to be the difference, but this team is obviously not responding to Vogel right now.
His lack of X's and O's were always offset by his ability to get the team to play harder than everyone else--with that no longer the case, we're screwed.
It's all on the coach. This team has no offense...still, after 3 years. DC didn't just magically become good again in Dallas. It's that Dallas has a great coach that knows how to get the best out of his players. Vogel doesn't know how to get the best from the players on the roster. If guys aren't executing properly, again, that is on the coach. Guys aren't making shots cause they really can't get many easy buckets. Comes down to the coach cause he can't implement any type of offense.
If Vogel isn't on the hot seat soon, then I don't think Walsh really cares what happens to this team.
Even without Granger there is a ton of talent on this team and they just stink.
I really want to know what Shaw contributes, cause to me, it doesn't look like much. Too much talent here to be playing like crap. I'm ready for SVG or Sloan.
3 scenarios for the draft, starting with my favorite first:
1. Pacers trade up for Justice Winslow
2. Take WCS or Stanley Johnson (this is the theory of a player falling); Make trades (Hibbert/West/others) for additional picks - George Lucas and Rakeem Christmas are players I'd love to have with a late first/early 2nd round
3. Trey Lyles
I'm sure my opinion will change many times before the draft though.
