Ok the general mood & demenor of Pacers fans is down. Hey who can blame us we went from winning all of the time to now praying we can win the next three vs. sub par teams.
What makes us feel better than anything when we are down? Well, winning of course. But short of that we love to talk about how to make us better as a team.
This thread is for us.
Now, for me, I am in a wierd spot. Normally I love to talk trades or who can do what for us or where a weakness is.
But in this case I'm one of those few believers who actually thinks that Jax coming back & everybody playing together more than a few games will make us a contender again.
Many of you think the same way, but in talking with our new resident doubting thomas Uncle Buck (obviously he needs further ghost visitations) it became clear that he firmly beleives that even with Jax we are no match for the big bad Pistons.
I put it to him & now I put it before everybody.
How do we correct that? Getting to the E.C. finals is not the goal. We want a title.
What would you like to see the Pacers do to get there.
A couple of things.
1. Don't say bring back Ron Artest. As of now that is not a hope, maybe someday but I doubt it. So for the time being you must make your plans without Ron in mind.
2. There has to be something. Please don't give up totall hope. Ron is a great player but just because he is gone we still can do this.
Do you want a better Center? P.G.? S.F.? P.F.? S.G? Is coaching a problem? Do you want a deeper bench? Do you want to trade some depth for a better single player?
Spell it out, go wild, just don't use Artest.
