    The other team has NBA players. Somehow Frank needs to make sure Lance is involved with everything we do. When he is playing at a high level, we are nearly unbeatable. When he doesn't, anyone can beat us.
    I agree.. Lance is the one player we have that makes the game easier for everyone else on offense

    You do realize we're actually talking about an extra $15M or thereabouts if we go over the LT, right?

    Again, when you are a billionaire and see that your team has a chance to win a title, why even own the team if you aren't willing to spend just a little more if an opportunity arises to improve your team.

    I don't insult anyone. In contrast, I am called a troll, obnoxious, etc and that is just in this thread alone! Shall I go back and pull up the quotes?
    If somebody called me a joke, I would be insulted. You just called an entire organization a joke. That is be definition an insult. Oh wait, they are millionaires, they are not really people.

    Hoosierguy, I would advise you to start drinking during games. You're getting too worked up.

    Everyone else, drop it and let's talk about the game.
    That might make him worse. Smoking some weed might help though, or just get a new perspective on life.

    Do you know what my issue with this is, my friend?

    When you're saying that it's embarrassing every time that we allow a team to make a run, you're essentially discrediting the other team. The Pacers do not play alone. They play against another team that adjusts and fights back. Sometimes, it's the opposing team's good play that causes our poor play. Just give credit to that team as well. The Cavs made it tough for us in the 4th quarter. They defender our sets well and they made tough shots. They absolutely deserve credit for their good play despite their injuries.

    Personally, I'm going to give them credit for that. I don't expect the Pacers to be perfect. No team can be perfect.
    The Pacers are the better team and should play like it. That is my expectation. Giving up a 16-1 run, missing FTs, turning the ball over, etc. are not acceptable.

    We all do, but there are going to be letdowns over an 82-game season. Even the 72-10 Bulls had some duds. Nobody is immune.

    Why did Frank wait so long to put Lance in the game in the fourth quarter? We were cold, and could have used his energy earlier in the quarter. I know we want to get DG in the flow, but not at the expense of Stephenson

    That's not having high standards. You're saying "this is embarrassing" almost every time that a team makes a run against us. That's not holding a team to a high standard. That's expecting it to be perfect.

    Just a request. Try to avoid replying to hoosierguy. He's the only poster on my ignore list. While I can't see (nor do I care) what he posts, it would be nice to not see his handle either.
    Yeah I've been trying to turn over a new leaf this year, un-ignoring a bunch of folks, but yeah. When 90 percent of the comments are negative and 1/2 of those are wild exaggerations, then the guy plays the victim when people inevitably call him a troll... yep time to reach for the ignore button.

    Troll: One who posts a deliberately provocative message to a newsgroupor message board with the intention of causing maximum disruption and argument
    BTW thanks to the admins or whomever for hiding quotes from ppl on your ignore list, that is a really helpful feature!

    What? Pity the poor Pacers then. Someone called their play a joke, which it was.

    I haven't insulted anyone on here. THAT is the point I am making. You are just shifting the goalposts in a poor attempt to discredit me.

    IOW, "perspective". It's not easy to have or to use, especially in stressful circumstances, but it's worth striving for. Well said, sir.

    I think all of us do? Do you understand why you might get negative reactions when you repeatedly make strong statements like "this team is a joke," "this team can't be taken seriously," etc. (which happens a lot, my man) in threads?

    My posts are not meant to inflame. I can't help it if people flip out because I say something they don't like.

    Calling me a troll is just lazy.

    Yes, the Pacers are the better team but the better team doesn't always wins in basketball. Sometimes, the better team gets outhustled and outplayed. It's only natural.

    I don't expect the pacers to win every game but giving up a 16-1 run to a decimated team soon after letting the Raptors close on a 38-19 run is very concerning.

    Sure you can. It's called taking a deep breath and thinking about it for a second before posting...

    I really don't want to put you on ignore man, I'm trying to avoid that this year, but the way people have reacted to a lot of your posts really shouldn't be that surprising... you need to recognize that.
