    Did you mean to title this Post season news. Glad to hear Granger will play and I hope we're just saving Bynum for later but info on his health has been quite.

    Will Galen has such little confidence in the Pacers that it's foregone conclusion to him that the Pacers season is over....hence the Offseason thread

    One year after a thrilling year in which the Knicks finished second in the East, Carmelo Anthony and co. limped to a 37-45 — which the SCHOENE system predicted back in October. The SCHOENE projections also correctly predicted that Knicks offense wouldn’t be able to keep up with its ridiculous output in the 2012-13 season (the Knicks scoring differential dropped from +4.3 to -.9 this year).

    When presented with the calculations before the season started, Carmelo Anthony wasn’t impressed.

    “Sometimes there’s glitches in the computer. That’s all I can say.”

    Knicks coach Mike Woodson played the “this computer never played the game” card.
    “Do they play? It’s a computer system. I don’t think computers run up and down the floor.”

    Can you just post this stuff in the random thoughts thread? It's the exact same stuff.

    Will is perfectly right to post this. The off season has begun for several teams. The draft is now in play for them and they are going to be making coaching and front office changes.

    Let's all just be grateful that the Pacers season continues.

    I don't think there is any problem with having an offseason thread already, so long as it actually has offseason news instead of postseason or random tweets.

    I'm cool with it, as long as I can add a few trade scenarios.

    Let me get started....

    Why go with failed retreads? There are top assistants and college coaches out there.

    Hiring people who have failed is how we ended up with JOB.

    I wonder if Reggie is ready to coach? j/k But if he really wants to have a front office job someday perhaps he'd take a stint as an Assistant ala Byron Scott.

    You think Jerry Sloan failed. . . One of the most successful coaches in NBA history? I personally think that he would be an awesome hire if things go south in the playoffs and Bird decides to make a change.

    I think a lot of those guys on their list have squandered their last chance at an NBA head coaching gig. Del Negro, Carliesimo, Smart, Gentry, Wittman (when his tenure in the District is over) are all probably out of chances at least in the short term. Saunders has a cushy front office gig in Minnesota, so wipe his name off the list, and Kelvin Sampson just accepted the job as head coach of the University of Houston, so he isn't a candidate either.

    Adelman might be ready to hang it up forever, but if not, he is someone I want the Pacers to strongly consider. Corner offense >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> no offense

    I wouldn't mind Jeff Van Gundy if he were interested in coaching, Jerry Sloan, Lionel Hollins probably doesn't help our offense, and we dont have the type of roster for George Karl.

    I'm not looking at that list (or any other such list) as candidates to replace Vogel, either. I think there is one name the list should comprise of if the worst comes to pass: Larry Bird.

    If you are looking at guys to replace Vogel, and Bird wasn't willing to coach his group, then George Karl would be on the short list.

    I dont think Bird can coach these guys. He was able to coach those other Pacer teams because they were professionals and veterans. Idk if he can coach these guys unless some roster changes were made.

    I always wanted Frank to be the long term coach for the team. I really like that guy, and it would be hard for me to forgive these guys if Frank ends up getting fired for their collapse, but if they have to make a change...

    George Karl is a great coach. I always liked him and he gets the most out of this teams. If we keep Lance, I can see him being a good coach for the team. Run Run Run.

    If Lance is gone, I'd like to see a Scott Skiles boot camp. These guys need a drill sergeant again. They need to get their **** together and remember what it is to play as a team. I think Scott would do a fine job in that department.

    If you want Skiles then you need to get new players, it is just that simple. Skiles with this group would look like the March/April Pacers except for 10 times worse
