    I am with you on that sentiment. Next year will tell us a lot about how committed Mr Simon is about getting a
    championship or just having a great team. I am extremely grateful for what he has done for this franchise but I believe it is time for him to step up to the plate and go all in on keeping this team together. It is special.
    Whose to say Simon wont. But I cant see it with the city pumping X amount of $'s into the Franchise and Fieldhouse. Not sure it will go over well for taxpayers. I would have to review but I am under the impression Simon exceeded the LT for the Reggie Miller Era, however those were different economical times.

    Just to clarify, this is not a Reggie vs Paul thread. Its the era of Miller which was pretty damn good for an entire decade vs what the current Pacers team's potential is with George & Hibbert.

    It was also a time where his brother was alive. Easily could have been his brother's choice to go over, and the tax paid came from his brother's pockets.

    We will be discussing who the better broadcaster is at that point in time.

    I believe in this roster. Paul George, Roy Hibbert, George Hill, Lance, DWEST solid core for the next 5 years if we can keep intact.

    My votes been placed. I echo others sentiments tho, Reggie will always be #1 at least until we raise a Banner.

    If it takes until 2027 I may want to reconsider my nomination.

    I doubt David West will be playing for the next 5 years. I think he will finish this contract and retire.

    How about if the city pay's the LT? I'm sure it would pay itself back in the long term if we won multiple championships...

    Maybe, or he might keep playing in a similar role as what Sam Perkins had for us, just with less 3's.

    It's never too early to give an opinion on how you think/hope the George era will compare to the Miller era. That's why we're here, to give our opinions. Obviously, it's too soon to compare what George has done so far to what Reggie's teams accomplished, but that isn't the question being posed.

    I think Paul George, and this group of guys, has an excellent chance to surpass what the Reggie-era teams accomplished. Mainly, by winning a title or two.

    PG for sure, but it's too early to say for certain. Injuries can change everything.

    Talent alone, it's no contest.
    Lance + Starting SG = Awesome

    Now really free Lance!

    It's early, but if I had to make a bet on it...Paul George will retire the best player in franchise history. Hopefully the best era too /fingerscrossed

    1995 Rik was no joke, 2000 Rik was way over the hill.

    Fixed. It wasn't age, it was his feet. It's not like he was a post banger with a body breaking down from years of physical abuse.

    If they ever make a dvd about Paul Georges heroics then we will have this discussion. I love the kid but the things Reggie did cannot be duplicated.

    Paul George has a long way to go to match Reggie. I do think the PG era could match Reggie's era, because of our young core.
    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."

    I have no doubt a 20 yr old is more than qualified to discuss Rik Smits.......

    Reggie was such a unique player, I don't think we will ever see another like him. What I mean is that he basically made a name for himself exclusively on post-season heroics

    Smits vs West is very close. West is better on defense, but Rik was on an entirety different level offensively. 7-4 that had several post moves, and could consistently make outside shots up to 20ft. He was a matchup nightmare for opposing centers

    Agreed. I loved Reggie's teams but the talent level on this squad is much higher actually.

    Paul George is way better than Derrick McKey.

    Smits was a better offensive weapon than Hibbert but overall Hibbert is the better player.

    Mark Jackson and George Hill are not far apart. I might give Jackson the edge.

    Miller is better than Lance Stephenson at this point.

    DWest is better than DDavis

    You're right it is close and that's a good way to compare them. It's better to compare Smits to West and DD to Hibbert. Smits was not a good defender but demanded a lot of double teams on offense that opened things up for our wing players. The bench on our 90's teams was far better though especially when you get to 97 with Mullin starting at the 3 and Antonio, Rose, Best and Mckey coming off the bench. This bench is much improved but the 90's bench alone gives the edge to that team.

    George may very well end up being the better player. But I can't imagine ever loving him more than Reggie.

    Not the original question, but for the record, Paul George is already a far better player than Reggie Miller ever was.
