    So it's Bird's fault when Bird was here, but Simon's fault now that Walsh is back? Take off your Walsh colored glasses.
    Maybe I didn't make it clear or you read my statement incorrectly. I said the buck stops with Walsh as he's in charge. The buck stopped with with Bird when Bird was in charge.

    My glasses are fine, I have no problem seeing the problem is Walsh's poor decision making. Not to mention, I stated awhile back that I'd rather have Bird back than have Walsh, and that comes from someone who wasn't a Bird the FO guy fan. I vehemently voiced my displeasure about Walsh being brought back by Simon. My concerns have been more than justified by Walsh's decision making. I can only hope Walsh being back in charge is a ONE N DONE! I'm not sure the Pacers franchise can afford more Walsh decision making.

    Walsh's revamped bench was 4-16 or 25% FG shooting last night. Walsh's 2 overpaid 22 mil starters of Hill 5-15 33% FG and Hibbert 3-10 30% FG.

    J McGee 20 pts on 9-9 shooting in 30 min at 10 mil. Denver's FO didn't overpay to keep McGee.

    Considering that Danny is due back in 2 months and that means Lance will be on the bench again, I'm assuming he'll play at the 2 and either Green or Young will play at the 3.

    That having been said, I wish we could magically replace DJ Augustin with Leandro Barbosa and Tyler Hansbrough with Lou Admundson.

    Barbosa/Stephenson/Young/Amundson/Mahinmi seems like a decent bench. Still going to struggle, but not this badly, I think.

    No doubt, but Miller murdered I think at least three guys assigned to him in the second half and anybody else who temporarily had him due to a switch or rotations. Must be such a luxury to have a vet PG who can actually influence a game when you need help off the bench.


    A luxury the Pacers/Walsh obviously didn't acquire.

    To me the Pacers lost for the following reasons:

    Couldn't keep Denver out of the paint.
    Poor b/c "D".
    11-18 FT shooting.
    18 TO.
    Poor bench production.

    Don't be surprised if it comes and goes, and goes, and goes without any roster moves.

    I can see that happening, but a brick wall shouldn't have to fall on Walsh to see the Pacers need a b/u PG.... desperately. I would hope the "lets wait and see attitude" would be abandoned for some action in improving the b/u PG position.

    I wouldn't mind letting Stephenson have the b/u PG duty, especially if they could pick up Marshon Brooks for scoring off the bench. He's wasting away on the bench in Brooklyn. He could definately get some PT here.

    Yes. He draws some nice plays for easy 2s and backdoor cuts. He doesn't draw good plays for 3 but at least our players would be more set to hit those and not forced to throw a desperate heave.
    Erm how about NO?He is terrible at drawing plays with few seconds remaining on the clock or in late game situations.We have seen that many times in the recent past.

    Sorry, but Simon brought Walsh back to be in charge, so the buck stops with him.
    Thanks for clarifying. I think 'him' in your sentence ties to the subject, Simon, and not the noun receiving the subject's action.

    Poor sentence structure on my part. I'll strive to do better, so there will be no confusion.

    . . . The way I see it, we have seven solid rotation guys now, clearly. We need to upgrade the back up PG spot, obviously. I'm not expecting much from the Gerald Green/Sam Young ninth man spot.
    Basically I agree with you. Roy, David, Danny, Paul, Hill, Lance and Ian look like guys that can play. Looking at things right now, the Pacers still need a backup PG and PF.

    The wing rotation looks good with Lance, Danny and Paul. The nice thing is about what we are really looking for is 10-15 mpg at two spots. That would seem to be solvable problems.
