  1. Should have moved on from McMillan and Turner at least 1 year ago. Turner's inability to rebound and lack of toughness/physicality is not worth what he brings defensively. And McMillan is a coach who is good, but not great. He'll get you 45+ wins in a season, but never win a championship. In fact, it's been over 10 years since he progressed past the first round of the playoffs. Larry Bird said the justification for firing Vogel was that players tune out a coach after 3 years. If that's the case, why is McMillan still around?
  2. Just for comparison's sake: Myles Turner: 6'11", 250 lbs Fred VanVleet: 6'0", 197 lbs Kyle Lowry: 6'0", 196 lbs 2 points and 5 rebounds in 20 minutes of action so far for Turner. He's so bad
  3. He was one of the judges for the dunk contest and intentionally gave Aaron Gordon a 9 when he clearly deserved a 10 so that Derrick Jones Jr would win the dunk contest. He was blatantly biased and shouldn't have been a judge. My previous hate for him is just his attitude. I always found him to be very entitled and bratty. Way too much ego for my liking
  4. Bummer Sabonis couldn't win the skills competition, but he did really well and he looked like he was having such a great time. Super happy for him. Also, I've always hated Dwyane Wade and last night just cemented that
  5. NBA I'd say LeBron. I'm heavily in the Manning group for NFL, though there should be a distinction between greatest of all time and greatest QB of all time. For example, is Manning a better QB than Jerry Rice was a WR? Hockey is difficult because the game has changed so much. In today's game, Gretz wouldn't come anywhere near as many points as he currently has. If you watch highlights from the 80s and 90s, the goalies were absolutely horrible. Gretz eclipsed 150 points in a season multiple times, and even hit the 200+ point mark multiple times, which is absolutely unheard of an
  6. Done more with less for Brees? For the last 10+ years, he's played in a dome and had a great offensively-minded head coach and has had a pretty good OL in front of him. On the other hand, Peyton had to deal with a poor OL for a lot of his career and head coaches that I think are overrated
  7. They could realistically push for the #2 seed. In the East, the seeds from #2 to #6 are all within 2.5 games of each other, so the #2 seed is definitely possible.
  8. These are all well and good, and I'm not saying Turner has 0 value. What I'm saying is he is getting outplayed by other players on the roster and the team would be better off trading him. For example, my claim is that the Pacers would be better off with Jaylen Brown, Sabonis, and Goga compared to Sabonis, Turner, and Goga. It's great to have a big who is a good rim protector and who can shoot 3s, but he has a worse RPG than Russell Westbrook, Richaun Holmes, Patrick Beverley, Rui Hachimura, and Rudy Gay. Every year, we've been waiting for him to have his breakout season, and he still can't
  9. Sure, let's look at advanced stats. Myles Turner advanced stats: .570 true shooting percentage, 13.9 PER, 10.6 total rebound percentage, 6.2 block percentage, 4.4 assist percentage, 0.116 win shares/48 Domantas Sabonis advanced stats: .571 TSP, 20.6 PER, 21.2 TRB, 1.2 BP, 16.3 AP, 0.179 WS/48 Goga Bitadze advanced stats: .552 TSP, 14.5 PER, 13.9 TRB, 7.9 BP, 9.2 AP, 0.146 WS/48 Of these guys and stats, Turner ranks last in PER, TRB, AP, and WS/48. I know these aren't all the advanced stats, so I'm not trying to cherry pick my data here, but I think this gives
  10. My point is that our record is not indicative of how good this team is. Against teams currently at or below .500, the Pacers are 11-4. Against teams above .500, the Pacers are 1-3. The Pacers are beating up on weaker teams, but can't beat the contenders. To me, McMillan is the same level of coach as the team currently is: good, but not great. I certainly think there are better options available. The only time McMillan has made it beyond the first round in the playoffs in his entire coaching career was 2004-2005. Every other year, he's either missed the playoffs
  11. I think we can say what kind of QB Brissett is at this point. He's a good game manager who could excel on a team with a good supporting cast (think Alex Smith), but not good enough to win you games on his own. His reads on deep throws are horrible; he's been throwing into double and triple coverage all year when he goes deep. He is way too quick to look for the check down. And he doesn't put good touch on the ball to throw receivers open. I like him as a very good backup, but not as the franchise QB moving forward.

  13. His stat line is really pathetic. Stats per 36 mins: Myles Turner: 13.6 points, 6.9 rebounds, 2.8 blocks, 1.2 assists, 2.0 turnovers, 13.2 PER Goga Bitadze: 12.7 points, 9.1 rebounds, 3.3 blocks, 2.5 assists, 1.6 turnovers, 15.2 PER When a high draft pick with tons of size, speed, and athleticism and multiple years of NBA experience is pretty much getting outplayed by a rookie with 14 total NBA games under his belt, that's a huge problem. Turner needs to be traded now while his value is still high. Rim protection (which Bitadze can also provide) isn't import
  14. Yeah, the end of that game was ugly. While the Pacers have a good record, they haven't really beaten any good teams. They've beaten teams like Chicago, Cleveland, Detroit, and Orlando. This team is not as good as the record indicates. There's a decent amount of talent on the roster, but the team is at the "good, but not great" level. Two things that could help that change would be trading Turner, and firing Nate. It's obviously not as easy as simply saying trade this guy and fire this guy because you have to get a good return on your trade with Turner and hire a better coac
  15. 12.6 points and 6.3 rebounds in over 30 minutes of action per game so far this season for Turner. Can they just trade him already while his value is still decently high? He's so unbelievably soft
  16. Multiple sources are reporting it. The Pacers and Sabonis are pretty far apart on contract talks, so the Pacers are actively involved in trade talks. Unpopular opinion: I'd rather see them trade Turner than Sabonis. I understand what Turner brings defensively at the rim and that he can shoot the 3, but let's just compare stats during the last 2 years: Sabonis (per 36 mins): 18.8 points, 12.5 rebounds, 55.3% shooting Turner (per 36 mins): 16.5 points, 8.6 rebounds (!), 48.3% shooting Sabonis (advanced stats): 19.8 PER, .600 true shooting %, 0.162 wi
  17. Sabonis on the trade block. What would you like to see in return for him?
  18. If the Pacers can sign D'lo or Tobias and Kawhi goes to LA, the Eastern conference could be Indy's for the taking Milwaukee is still talented, but lost a great player in Brogdon and Giannis needs to learn how to shoot, since we saw the Raptors exploit that last year. Raptors are the defending champs, but depends on what Kawhi does Nets won't have Durant next year and could be beatable Celtics lost a lot this offseason; they'll be good, but beatable Philly remains a good team, but beatable
  19. Jimmy Butler, Kawhi, D'lo, and Tobias Harris are all still available too. I have a hard time seeing Kawhi or Butler in Indy, but D'lo or Tobias would be unreal after what the Pacers have done already
  20. Don't like to see first round picks being traded, but it will likely be a late first round pick (20th or later) and you could easily make the case that Brogdon is worth it. Pritchard is being aggressive and making some moves. This should be a really fun team to watch when Oladipo gets back, especially in the wide open East.
  21. Just for fun, I'll provide one for each league MLB: DiMaggio's 56 consecutive games with a hit NBA: Bill Russell's 11 championships NFL: there are a lot to go with here. Don Shula's 347 victories, Emmitt Smith's career rushing yards, Favre's nearly 300 consecutive starts, and pretty much any Jerry Rice stat all come to mind. NHL: Gretzky's 2800+ career points...among nearly anything else Gretz did
