The only difference between this year and last year is that the Pacers made it public they were gunning for the 1 seed from day 1. It's just part of the season that drags. We all knew it would come at some point. By the time the postseason rolls around this team will load up and do what they need to to win. That's when it matters.
"A winner is someone who recognizes his God-given talents, works his tail off to develop them into skills, and uses these skills to accomplish his goals." Larry Bird
“Just because you're offended, doesn't mean you're right.” ― Ricky Gervais.
What if someone from a school of business or management school were to ask, How did you do this? How did you get the Pacers turned around? Is there a general approach you've taken that can be summarized?
Larry Bird: Yeah, patience.
Another night, another backside-kicking. They just hit you from so many sides, now, in waves. It's like a cavalry, running down hill and trampling you underfoot. You have no tactical advantage, you're just swinging wildly in the mud, and the best strategy might be to play dead.
They are an absolute onslaught right now.

Meanwhile the heat are 15-4 vs .500 teams
I'm not worried, but I'm getting uncomfortable. We are up 1 single game on the Heat now.
LeWade are going down.
If this team needs HC just for the what if of a game 7... Then they aren't ready to dethrone the champs. Not saying it's not important but that's not what these championship hopes need to be relied on
