|You called that at the beginning of the season BEFORE the season started and you were completely correct. I overrated them and you knew that the Pacers wouldn't be as good.
Well a broken clock is bound to be right twice a day!
It's about time I finally predicted something correctly- the rest of my Eastern predictions are a mess atm! Overrating teams like the Pistons and Knicks... But the problem wasn't getting rid of a top 5 coach- which is a massive problem in itself- but I kinda get the logic of getting a fresh voice, so if they had gotten Mark Jackson or Brian Shaw or David Blatt or Mike D'Antoni or whoever- that would have been fine, though still a backwards step from Vogel. But the fact is, promoting the assistant to head coach is not a fresh voice- in fact promoting an assistant coach rarely works because they are too friendly with the players as there he is like a friendly bridge between player and head coach so it was a completely baffling appointment and the reasons didn't even make sense so I just never thought it was going to work, despite the roster improvement.
