Hello...hello (echo)
Wow. A two day old Pacers board and I'm the first poster. Is this a sign of empty seats to come? Have the Pacers finally killed their last fan?

Not much to cheer about lately, but much to criticize them for. Although this article reminds me of why I like O'Brien as a coach, it's still a wait and see approach for the Pacers.

Pacers fans may be underestimating the impact of Rick Carlisle being replaced. This will be a different team, playing a totally different style of ball.

This team is the antithesis of the Colts. The organization doesn't seem to have a plan or a vision. They continually band-aid their core problems.

What else can O'Brien do other than say he wants to make Tinsley the best player available? He's stuck with him.

I wonder what the coach will do when Tinsley is, once again, exposed defensively over and over again.

It will be interesting season. Not necessarily a good one.

It's not the winning and losing. I stuck with them when they were in the toilet fondly called the '80's. I'm just sick of seeing them keep popping up in the arrest reports. Win or lose, I'll be back when they make some personnel changes and not before.

I love the Pacers. I believe they did sign two good players and two role players. HOWEVER that will not be enough and well we can look forward to watching the draft next year right?

I hope they don't feel the need to force-feed minutes to the Golden State guys in order to justify the terrible trade. All three are terrible defenders with adequate, but limited offensive skills. Two of them certainly cannot be on the court at the same time for any extened stetch.

Interested to see Ganger get to the next level. Go Pacers...
