For all those who want McMillan fired, who are some good head coach candidates to replace him?  Shaka Smart?  Kevin Ollie?

I am never on the firing squad, but those two are intense competitors whose teams always improve over the .season.  Good post!!

I don't know much about them, but I've heard their names in the past.  I don't know how good they could be in the NBA, but they've had some success in college

I think both could coach in the NBA  myself running the break or in sets.

I haven't started to watch the Pacers game but boy IU sucks this year.  How do they go from beating Kansas, NC then just tanking against IPFW, Butler, Nebraska, Louisville, Wisconsin, two BT games @ Assembly.  I had such high hopes for them but they're playing bad ball now.

Turn out the lights the party is over! First 3 game winning streak of the season. Ok we are back at .500/18-18 and in the 7th spot.

I wish we weren't a .500 team, but right now I'm glad we are.

 

Look at the next 6 games..we can take a step up the ladder here

I can't believe there were some people wanting to trade Teague lol. 

I think Teague has been good....

He's been leading a team that's new to him and he's had to work it out but he's so good with the ball..

 

..we don't turn it over 20 times a game anymore

    • Yeah, for one game.  Pinter was that bad.  Of any O-linenan the Colts actually went into the season with as a starter, Pinter might be the worst Colts O-lineman of the past 15-20 years.  Dude was tossed around like a rag doll.   The official investigation is still ongoing as to whether Matt Ryan fell off the cliff or was pushed off the cliff by Pinter and Pryor.    
    • After Pinter nearly ended Matt Ryan's life in 4 games, Smith was moved to RG for the 2022 Denver game - the 12-9 game for the ages.  Ballard pulled the plug on Smith at RG five minutes later, so I wouldn't expect it again.  
    • It wasn't a great season (great would be making the Finals) but I would classify it as a very good one, one reason why is, we overachieved. Making the Final 4 is a very good accomplishment and winning 47 games to stay out of the playin scenario is pretty respectable. We also won a Game 7 at NY in the Semi's which is almost impossible to do no matter who they have out there. They did have Brunson and Divincenzo for that Game 7 for most of the game. Brunson had to leave because of a broken hand late in the 3rd but by then we were up big anyway.    Even though we got swept by Boston, it didn't even really feel like a sweep. We lost both home games without Haliburton by only 3 points and gave away Game 1 losing in OT and that was at Boston. They really only kicked our butt in Game 2.    All in all, we just lost to a slightly better team who has been in the Conference Finals for many years - so their experience in closing games was better.    We need to add 1 more piece and it needs to be someone that just focuses on being physical in the paint defensively and wants to Rebound more than anything. Turner is more of a stretch Center that has a score first mentality, he is a great shot blocker but isn't physical enough when guys come into the paint.   There are 5 levels to basketball: Level 1 - Just making the Playoffs (above average) Level 2 - Winning a Playoff series (good) Level 3 - Winning 2 Playoff series = making the Conference Finals (very good) Level 4 - Winning 3 Playoff series = Winning the Conference (great) Level 5 - Being a World Champion   -We reached Level 3   I won't be a sore loser so I will congratulate @NFLUpand the other Boston fans for winning the East. They are just better as of now.
    • I'm sorry I misstated that it was Saturday that moved him back, IIRC Saturday had stated that Smith would be staying at RT and they were moving Raimann to LT and that's what I am remembering. Still never stated it was a long term plan, I even said it was Reich grasping at straws to try and fix the O-line.   It's the simple argument of someone stating that something never happened, when it had happened. Now you're somehow trying to argue that while trying to put words in my mouth. I never said it was a long term thing. YOU and I are on the same page and the same opinion that he should remain a RT and shouldn't be changed to RG
    • Smith had a career year when he was in there last year on a bad knee.
