    Default NBA Title Odds for 2013-2014 NBA Season: Pacers ranked #4

    Found this interesting article from Bleacher Report.com (actually, it's a slideshow presentation w/commentary) that ranks the odds of each NBA team's chances of winning the 2013-2014 NBA Finals. Pacers are ranked #4. The crazy thing is that despite upgrading their bench, the Pacers are 0-2 in pre-season play.

    There is a reason for optimism here: The Pacers' bench is slowly showing signs of improvement.

    In pre-season Game 1, the Pacers used 9 bench players who scored a combined total of 24 pts - less than half the total pts scored by the starters (52 pts); high scorer was Danny Granger w/6 pts. The bench improved in pre-season Game 2 w/the 10 bench players scoring a combined 45 pts - only 6 pts fewer than the starters (51 pts); high scorer was Olando "Juice" Johnson w/11 pts.

    While it's too early to gauge exactly how good this team will be because players are still getting use to each other and player rotations are still being filled out, I think if as time goes on this team will figure things out and being to perform better. It has to start soon, though. Otherwise, the start to the season will be tough!
