That treadmill team scares me a lot more than the "star" team Brooklyn put together. The Pistons proved that you can ride balanced scoring, elite D, and some luck to a championship.

No that would involve trading Damian Lillard for Gerald Wallace.

brooklyn isnt a star team... it was a team assmebled to be a playoff lock going into a new city/arena and ensure they arent moving to brooklyn with a loser. the nets arent a good team, and certainly not one built for the playoffs... in fact, the only bigger fraud team then us, is... well the pacers.

pacers offense is absolutely pathetic... you couldnt outscore us starting tyshon taylor and reggie evans. our defense is pathetic and we held you to what, 75 points in 4 quarters and overtime?

complete frauds. i hope we drop to the 6 or 7 seed so we can play you and actually get out of the first round

George Hill- traded for a mid first round pick

Orlando Johnson- 36th pick
Ian Mahinmi- 28th pick
Tyler Hansbrough- 13th pick
DJ Augustine- 9th pick
Sam Young - Mid 1st round pick


Maybe I'm missing something but the Pacers have built a decent team but it took them six years to do it. Hardly an impressive feat. They were at or below .500 for 6 years.

Agree that they are a top notch organization and love the way they have built the team.

I think Indy has the best chance to beat Miami of any Eastern team. They can murder the Heat on the boards.

Compared to the West, OKC and SAS are clearly better, but I'd put them on the same tier as the Clippers and Grizzlies.

Ironically they are a match up I hope the Nets face in the playoffs. We match up well with their style of play and are 2-0 against them (both match ups within the last 5 weeks), though getting Granger back changes things.

One other thing....David West is one of the most underrated players in the league.

They are arguably the best match up for us and we're 2-0 against them. We don't match up well with Miami, Atlanta or Milwaukee as they have speed and athleticism.

The Pacers were not missing their leading scorer from last year like they have all year. The Pacers also didn't recently come off the leagues only back to back to back game where they ended up playing 4 games in 5 nights before they played brooklyn.

:roll: .. maan. The Paces are only elite defensively and are second in the conference so far despite a major injury only because they're frauds.

If we're a treadmill team at the 2nd spot in the EC, and you're in 4th in the EC... What does that make you? Ignorant hate.

I'm not claiming the Pacers' offense to be top-tier, but they've been missing their perennial leading scorer. Let's see how the Nets do w/out Lopez (I think that's the leading scorer).

we had tyshon taylor and reggie evans starting! dwill was out and we were on a back to back as well and we play ZERO defense and you still lose and didnt break 80 points... and even if you want to make excuses for that game we beat you by 15-20 the previous meeting.

2nd in the east is a joke, the conference is terrible and there are what like 4 teams within a game or two of the pacers?

fraud team.

what does the nets being an awful overpaid team that plays no defense have to do with the pacers?

if your comparing yourself to the nets, you certainly arent a good team.

To be fair they were a treadmill team before this season...kinda like the Atlanta hawks a few years go. They are playing better this year but until they actually do something relevant in post season things won't change much.

I think people are losing sight of the face that the game actually has to be played. These aren't simulations. The Pacers are absolutely a contender because they match up well with every team in the league. Some of you guys should just stop watching basketball since the winners are already so clear cut :roll:

so basically, the pacers are the only team who plays on back to back nights and its unheard ofr for a team to win on a back to back?

got it thanks. nets dont play defense, only beat horrible sub .500 teams, we didint have OUR leading scorer from last year(dwill) and still won. that should tell you all you need to know about your fraud fugazy team.
