Thread: This team has quit (2014 edition)

    Vinny THE BLACK (Del Negro) summed it up on NBATV. This team was going through an adjustment period adding new guys. We had two new guys, and one pending new guy (Bynum). Now that the whole band is together, CJ returns probably Wednesday vs. NYK. We have about 4 weeks to gel. Will be awesome to watch. The process is already at about 50%.

    I'm amazed how quickly these guys found jobs again in this economy.

    I noticed the team started sharing the ball a little more late in the game. It made a difference. The biggest issue this team has had is that, too often all the players try to go it alone instead of passing the ball. That's in part because they are all capable of being pretty successful doing that. But it has hurt us the last couple months IMO. The good news is that against the better teams they share it better. But the shame of it all is that if they did that as a matter of course, they would be a much better team.

    I'm sorry for criticizing this thread. I forgot about the one last year. I'm guessing Dan Burke saw this thread and told the guys about it, that's the only plausible explanation for the comeback

    the ball movement was far better in the second half and OT across the board. that really is what makes this team good offensively. Yes there will be plays where someone goes one on one because sometimes thats good.

    I really want to give Turner another shout out. As soon as he entered the game in the third, he attacked the rim. I felt like he kept that energy we opened the half with going, especially after a couple of meh possessions, including Hill picking up his fourth foul. He just kept going too.

    Yeah I totally forgot about last year's thread and Shade's anti-jinx hijinx in general. I guess all the negativity surrounding a team that still holds a #1 seed is starting to get to me...

    You guys are far too positive about one good half. Turn the season around? We'll find out soon enough with measuring stick games coming up. I do give them credit for the W, but where is the sense of urgency and defensive intensity in the first half? If I do look at the bright side for a minute, maybe the fact that they could turn it on for the second half means they can turn it on come playoff time. This team will drive you crazy for sure.

    This reminds me of ChicagoJ's legendary "This team needs 15 new players" thread from a decade or so ago.

    I thought so too; it was made by a fan on Twitter @bavanlan . I hadn't even heard of the movie, but I love both the obvious joke about Hibbert's balance issues and just seeing him in that pose holding a briefcase and a shotgun like a boss.

    The kneejerk reaction thread lives!
    Kneejerk insinuates this was made at the first sign of trouble. This team has played like utter **** for 2 months now.

    Last night that comeback was a great thing to watch. But if there is a single person here that thinks we can continue to play like this(last few months) and beat the Heat in a playoff series, you're nucking futs.

    If we are going to have a thread dedicated to "annoying pessimists" as some have pointed out, can we also have one for "annoying optimists" as well?


    Disclaimed: Sandman, this isn't directed at you, just the kneejerk part. You are a poster I respect a lot here.

    Also, thanks for turning the season around Shade, it was getting brutal to watch.

    And "This team was built for the regular season."
    Welcome to Pacers Digest! New around here? Here are three tips for making the forum a great place to talk about Pacers basketball.

    • Log in. Even if you want to read instead of post, it's helpful because it lets you:
    • Change your signature options. You can hide all signatures by choosing "Settings" (top right) then "General Settings" (middle left) and unchecking the box "Show Signatures" (in the "Thread Display Options" area).
    • Create an ignore list. I know it may seem unneighborly. But you're here to talk about the Pacers, not argue with someone who's just looking for an argument. Most of the regular users on here make use (at least occasionally) of the "Ignore" feature. Just go to "Settings" -> "Edit Ignore List" and add the names.

    Enjoy your time at PD!

    It's the regular season. It's hard to keep guys motivated for 82 games. This team has not quit, they're just in a slump.
