    Default Pacer's Perfect Start - ESPN Video

    This is a video from First Take this morning. They all make very good arguments. But I annoyingly dislike Skip, as usual.

    Have a look, and share what you think!

    This is going to be a fun year guys! Really.

    That may be the first time I've ever heard Stephen A. Smith talk for an extended period of time where I didn't want to punch him in the face.

    FYI, Skip Bayless is involved. Proceed at your own risk.

    All things considered not the dumbest thing skip ever said. But you don't need a player as good as Lebron to beat the Heat. More often than not Lebron has lost is final playoff series. And I think you would be hard pressed to ever say those teams had a better player.

    I imagined during that conversation players talking about shaking Lebrons hand the way they talk about Sinatra in Oceans 13 lol.

    I also want to mention that no one even mentioned Granger....There used to be a lot of talk about how good we would be if Granger came back even half as productive as he was, and now not one mention....That concerns me as to where Granger's fate lies within the Pacers organization, and to the extent of health that is left in his body....I am worried that he will come back from this calf strain and something else is going to act up on him....

    Here's to praying for Granger to be an effective piece of our team....

    I wouldn't use ESPN's on-screen analysis as a barometer for Larry's perspective about Granger.

    Agree in general, but SAS actually had a couple of solid points there. The big one was refuting Skip's assertion that Paul George has to be better than LeBron in order for Indy to pass Miami. If Paul can even come close to evening out LeBron's production, and we beat them at every other position on the court, we could end up winning by a lot.

    Stephen A. knows first hand how good the Pacers are. He's still crushed by the way the Pacers dismantled his Knicks in the 2nd round.

    This was also the first thing I noticed. It is the first time I have heard an analysis about our Championship Frontrunnership where Danny was not a factor. However, I think that is a GREAT thing! I don't want our chances to be tied into Danny's health! And for the first time, I DON'T believe they are...

    It honestly wasn't that bad, nothing Skip said was unfair or anything.

    Was pretty odd the name Granger wasn't mentioned once. We can all debate how and when to play Danny til the cows come home but I don't think anyone would argue having him healthy in whatever role makes us better. Outta sight outta mind I suppose. Really, that's how far PG's come in such a short time. Him being as good as he is makes Danny not even worth a mention in a national segment.

    Just a small mention of Lance at the end. Lance and PG elevating their games means they can beat the Heat. Doesn't mean they will, but they certainly are an elite team.

    All the PG love is intoxicating. Never has the Pacers had a player like Paul.

    2010 draft has to be one of the best drafts of all time if the Pacers keep Lance past this season. How many teams select 2 top tier players in a draft outside of the top 9 picks?
    Offseason

    Likes:
    The entire draft. Love the picks of Turner, Young and trading for Christmas.
    Signing Glen Robinson III
    Trading for Budinger
    Signing Monta Ellis
    Signing Jordan Hill (not for the player, but for his deal)

    Dislkes:
    Re-signing Stuckey and Allen

    The Scola been one of the best back to the basket players in the NBA thing kind of made me mad because the Pacers are not using him that way.

    I don't mind SAS, but Bayless is on a strict no watch list for me.

    its been 4 games. I thought we used Scola well last night, seems to be getting more comfortable out there and the guys seems to be getting more comfortable with him.

    I think they are though. They are playing him in the high post and basically asking him to play like West which is pretty much exactly his game. Look for cutters first because he is a superb passer and then posting up if he has the spacing right. It's just a chemistry thing with scola. He's gonna be great in a few months when he gets used to who he is playing with. I can't wait until Lance and Scola get some chemistry. They are going to pick and pop second units to death.

    All the passes I've seen scola make are REALLY good looks just not used to who he is playing with yet. The second unit will be a machine once everything clicks for them chemistry wise.

    This video had more Pacers love than a fire hydrant at a dog park.
