Did Roy Hibbert really cry?
Did Roy Hibbert really cry?
If we are trying to be positive in any fashion, our defense is stellar.
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.
I can't even get myself excited about this team. I just haven't been sold on it and caught up on Homeland and Boardwalk Empire tonight instead of watching the game. And this is coming from someone who watched that entire wonderful year when we had Kareem Rush. Didn't miss a game that year.
Wonder if Vegas have odds for Vogel fired before the All-star break.
The good news is, I think its a lot easier to build an offense, then a stellar defense.
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.
"We've got to be very clear about this. We don't want our players hanging around with murderers," said Larry Bird, Pacers president.
The one thing I don't entirely get is the extreme backlash at Vogel. The offense is as vanilla as it gets, but the roster isn't exactly well put together. Especially since the entire offense is predicated on Roy Hibbert's ability to score in the low post. If that isn't happening, we are in DEEP ****. And it's not.
If Jerry Sloan really wants to coach again, the Pacers should snag him up. Don't be like IU and hold on to Vogel too long.
brian shaw please
... You know what? I had about a 3-4 paragraph post about how we're still going to be a playoff team and things are going to eventually gel, and even if we aren't a #2 seed that does not mean we aren't going to be a force come playoff time. I really believe that.
But I know that no one is going to listen and it's just going to get flamed, so instead, I deleted that and you get this:
I'm certainly disappointed Lance didn't get in the last few minutes.
It may not have mattered, but then again, there were several possessions down the stretch where we needed a good entry pass and some sanity around the perimeter. Paul George choked numerous times. It may have made the difference if Lance had the ball on just one of those possessions.
