    Yes it is Kool-Aid time.
    Good is the enemy of Great


    We're changing the identity of our basketball team -- dramatically. We're a power post team -- a blood-and-guts, old-school, smash-mouth team that plays with size, strength, speed and athleticism. We attack the basket. . . . This is the new identity of our team. It was a great effort. I'm very proud of our guys."

    Bonus prediction: The Eastern Semis will be every bit as grueling as the Eastern Finals. I think Miami gets the top seed, Chicago gets the two seed, and we are the three seed. Our path to the Finals will be Washington, Chicago, Miami. We 4-1 Washington, 4-3 Bulls in a war of a series, and 4-3 Miami.

    54 wins. They will once again lose to Miami in the ECF.

    Edit: another poster made a good point. If we face the Bulls or Heat in the 2nd round we will lose to them. I have yet to see proof we have gotten past either of them.

    They will at least make the ECF, not ready to say they will make the finals yet.

    Not that it cannot be done but it would be wise to have the 1st or 2nd seed. The vast majority of champions come from the 1st or 2nd seed.

    How many wins will it take to get that position???

    Probably 60 wins.

    Pacers 58-24

    Lose in finals.

    Start off slow but they get into full stride midseason.

    Paul George proves to be worth the contract. Hibbert struggles with a consistent offense. Hill has a solid year. We shoot the three better, particularly from the corners. West and Scola provide a stable post offense.

    Lance does everything well but shoot. Granger is average or below in everything but shooting (he will have a crazy good 6 weeks that overcompensates for a slow start and then comes down to earth)

    We will have an ongoing debate that will cause some hard casualties in PD kingdom.

    OJ will be the new bench player that everyone will want to see more of. To the point that will be all that some talk about.

    And if any player is traded, it will be Hill.

    The post season will be grueling. And we will fail to make it to the ECF running into the Bulls where the verticality rule will not be an asset.

    We beat Miami in the ECFs and then the Spurs in the Championship.

    Paul George and Either Roy or David will be All Stars.

    George makes second team all NBA.

    Around 55 wins is my prediction too.

    Don't want to "derail" the thread, but can you see Paul George reaching the 20's as far as ppg is concerned this season?

    If he keeps shooting around 50%, then definitely.
