    They won, but it was a very underwhelming performance against an old basketball team that's coach is not capable of drawing up an offensive play for the final 5 minutes. If you can watch the tape of that basketball game and say you were impressed by the Miami Heat and fear them, more power to you.
    It IS funny watching Kidd stand around during their time outs letting his assistants draw up plays.

    As far as being impressed by or fearing the Heat... They've lost one game through two rounds. Sure, I'm impressed by that. But, right now, I'm more afraid of the Pacers' ineptitude than I am anything else.

    There are three Harbor Freights in Indy and they do carry the Cowbells in stock. Since they are kind of heavy I doubt the security folks would be pleased. Killed by Cowbell would make for a strange headline.

    Yup.
    They barely won. Would you bet your fortune that they would end up winning when they were down 91-83 in the 4th?

    No. I never claimed to be an oracle. That's exactly why I'm annoyed at people who say "Miami will definitely sweep all the way to the title" but refuse to back it up.

    Well that's fine. Stephen A doesn't deserve to be on TV, because quite frankly, he's an idiot.

    I think some of you are confused. He's saying the Pacers don't deserve it because of how many times they have rolled over this season. He said he doesn't put the blame on Vogel and that it is solely on the players letting Vogel and Bird down.

    Not confused at all, the Pacers are up 3 games to 2 and one more win puts them in the ECF which they will be deserving of as well as any other team that makes it to the next level. Teams don't get there by losing and right now Pacers are winning.

    Still doesn't make his argument any less stupid, IMO.

    The problem is with as many times as the Pacers have "rolled over", the Hawks couldn't capitalize. If the Pacers make it out of the semis, that means the Wiz couldn't capitalize. And if we make it through to the Finals, the Heat couldn't capitalize. You deserve it by earning it. And as frustrating as it is, the Pacers "earned" the ability to rollover when they went up 3 games to 1. It's first to win 4 games in any order. Just because it's not pretty doesn't mean it won't end with the trophy.

    If you've ever been to a Uni of Michigan basketball game you know how to play the cowbell.

    They don't deserve to be. I love the Pacers and if they make it, I will be stoked. They have no heart though. No team without heart deserves to be there.

    Believe me. If the Pacers lose the next two there will be people singing a different tune. At some point this lack of heart will bite them. I hope it all goes well just like you do, but I think it's easy to see why people outside this board might have a negative feeling about the Pacers. They have become a less likable team by allowing themselves to be embarrassed this season probably more than any other team in the playoffs. Losing is one thing, but getting out rebounded by 40 is flat out rolling over.

    Ha ha... you got me! The heat didn't DESERVE to win that game!

    So, should the playoff games the Pacers won where they were down (I don't know, like by 19 or something) be looked at negatively? Seems to me we aren't complaining about those wins, and I doubt anyone in Miami is complaining about their 8th win in 9 games and closing out round two on their home floor.

    Did I look at them negatively? I looked at them the same way that I looked to the Pacer wins that you mention. They won last night and we won those games. That's all that matters.

    I just want people to be consistent.

    Yeah, a team that comes back from being 19 down to take the win and a 3-1 lead on the opponent's court has no heart. That's what teams without a heart do, isn't it?

    It's not OK to give 100% effort part of the time. Like I said, Pacers have more embarrassing losses than any team I can think of.

    Think harder then. Not all losses happen because your team played bad. Sometimes the other team simply played better. It's disrespectful for the opponent to continually chew your team over its losses instead of giving some well-earned respect to the opposing team.

    When did our fanbase started thinking that our team is unbeatable? When did we become like Miami fans? Why are we refusing to give credit to the opposing team? Weren't we upset when the ESPN "analysts" were saying "what is wrong with the Knicks" in last year's ECSF instead of saying "what are the Pacers doing right"? Why are we doing the same to other teams now?

    I'm ranting a bit now but this attitude has annoyed me throughout this season.

    Yes, we have absolutely had some major duds. Game 5 was awful. You (and every other Pacers fan) has every reason to complain about game 5. It was truly an embarrassing loss. We have had a couple of other embarrassing losses as well.

    But not every single one of our losses was an embarrassing one. Sometimes the opponent just outplayed us.

    You give too much credit. The fact he places value on such superficial crap makes him an idiot.
