It's embarrassing how far I got in this thread before realizing it was old. Still some ridiculous opinions here.
I like pacergeek because he is a passionate fan who can praise and cheer for the team just as strongly as he can post his concerns and dismays when things aren't going well. And I always respect people who are easily willing to admit when they got something wrong.
This is the second thread (DJ Augustin was the first) that made me say what the F**K and then I saw that it was from 2012......
Larry Bird and Ryan Grigson- wasting the talents of Paul George and Andrew Luck
While I didn't support blowing the team up, I did say we took a step back. Of course I meant that in terms of the bench and Granger's availability. Even now I think Gerald Green and DJ Augustin is a major downgrade from Dahntay Jones and George Hill. I never thought Paul would blow up like this, but I knew both he and Hibbert would be good. I just didn't think it would be last year until they proved it.
Accountability is the gift that keeps on giving.
Allow me to toot my own horn for a bit. Here's what some of the things that I wrote at the time. Those responses to some of the replies in this thread:
And here's a longer reply:
All in all, I feel proud about what I wrote. I am very happy that the team was able to meet and slightly surpass my expectations.
Those are nice bumps. They teach us to be careful when overreacting
"Oh my God, we're having a fire.....sale!"
Shout out to the sunshiners, or at least those who kept their heads up when the team struggled out the gate last season. 10-15 games in, I admittedly was extremely pessimistic about our prospects. I don't know how you guys managed to have such positive outlooks, but clearly you all were right!
