A stupid idea to leave zones out of the defensive scheme. You can always fit them in when you have an uptempo style, and if you don't use them, you deprive yourself of a weapon. You will see other teams take advantage of this short-sighted approach.

All the Pacer bashers are back at it. One losing season in a long, long time and everyone is full of negativity.
Jim O'Brien is a winning coach and fans will be surprised as to how well they mesh and play together.
Give the negative garbage a rest! ALl some of the comments are nonsense and nothing else but bashing the team.
If you don't like them, stay off the website and why are you reading and writing.

No, you silly person. You are wrong. We will still root for a losing team. But don't bombard us with advertisements to buy tickets to watch players who are at strip clubs a few hours before practices (and possibly even games) are about to start. Not that we object to the form of entertainment the players chose, but don't pretend to bring full effort to the court after being out all night. GOd knows I wouldn't want a pharmacist filling my presecription after such a night. Management says they can't get rid of certain players because of "finances." Well, just pay them to stay home and play some hungry kids on European teams to play for the Pacers. That we will watch. As it stands, free tickets won't fill Conseco.
