Yuck. He has mental issues, hes a Ron Artest type in waiting.

 

We badly need a SG but not him.

 

Character issues aside, he's a great scorer and an offensive playmaker. Would be an upgrade over Stuckey/Ellis.

I wouldn't touch him with a 10 foot pole.  He has character issues on the court.  He'll be no good to the team if he's suspended for a handful of games each year because he lets his frustration get the best of him

He almost got in a fight again tonight. Ron Artest 2.0

Warriors lost to the Heat and the Cavs lost to the Pelicans and Davis didn't even play. What a strange night.

I'm of the opinion that the regular season is kinda overrated.  I don't think you need to go all out like the Warriors did last year and try to win 70+ games, or even 60+.  In my opinion, you should keep the effort high enough to ensure a top 3 or 4 seed in your conference.  Aim for 50-55 wins so you get home court, but you don't exhaust your team and put extra pressure on them.  Once you're settled into that, use the regular season to try out different lineups, different plays, etc.  Use it as a sort of testing grounds.  And if you end up losing a game or two, it's worth it because you're able to get better data on what lineups perform better.  That way, when the playoffs come around, you know exactly what lineups to go with and who can play what role.  I view the regular season as "just get through it and get to the playoffs", then I view the playoffs as when you bring out all the big guns.

I can't stand him.  Aside from the fact that he plays for Duke (with all due respect to Coach K), Allen annoys me just as much as a guy like Draymond Green.  Dirty players who need to resort to illegal and dangerous tactics to win.

I'm already looking forward to the draft/offseason.

 

Need to ditch McMillan and injury prone players like Ellis and Stuckey. 

Do you think Bird gets rid of McMillan after just one year?  I still think we'll make a move at or near the trade deadline, but I don't know about getting rid of McMillan.  As much as I think he does need to go, I don't know if Bird will do it so soon after hiring him.  Although Bird is a bottom-line kind of guy, and if the team is underperforming its talent, I wouldn't be surprised to see him pull the trigger

I can't stand Duke either haha it seems like Duke has a player like him almost every year. He is very dirty, he could end up a good NBA player but hes a disaster waiting to happen.

I honestly feel as if Bird hired McMillan as a one year rental.

Stuckey needs to go. Ever since he came to the Pacers, he's been injured. Need a SG badly. Need to play defense badly. Need to not lose to god awful teams badly. Good lord this is an awful loss. Had won 7 of 8 and have now lost 3 straight. Two of which are to the Lakers and the Knicks

Hes not happy with how the team is playing. I posted an article about it on the last page. He might end up firing him.

I don't even think he is that good of an NBA prospect. There will be way better players available.

Ripping the fan base is not a good idea PG. If you guys weren't playing like crap than maybe people wouldn't boo you.

Yeah they were the one seed in 2014 and got booed but that was after they looked like championship contenders before the all star break and afterwards looked awful the rest of the season.

 

He cannot use that example to shade the fan base. They only boo when they play horribly over a period of time.

This team would currently be the 4th or 5th seed had we kept Vogel.

I completely disagree. We gave up our defense for offense by getting rid of Hill and Mahimi and the offense we picked up cannot match this horrible defense. We'd be in the same spot with Vogel and this roster.

    • If the Colts are looking for a YAC guy, Corley could be a target.  He does look like Debo.  Basically a RB once he has the ball.  I like him too.  It really depends on if they’re looking for a more vertical threat. Corely does show vertical shots on film but probably not his number one strength. 
    • Had to pull off a trade with the Bills to gain extra R5 pick.   Personally, am warming up to Luke.  Then again rooted heavily for him as Nebraska's QB and glad to see him succeed as a wide receiver.   WR Luke McCaffrey (Rice) According to PFF, 110 FBS-level receivers in this draft class were targeted at least 55 times. He ranked 46th in yards per route (2.11), 32nd in drop percentage (4.1 percent; three drops), 11th in contested catches (60.7 percent; at 17-of-28, his 17 contested catches trail only Washington’s Rome Odunze) and 36th in YAC per catch (6.0).  Liking Luke's low drop percentage and ability to make contested catches.  Pretty solid company to be compared to Odunze who had issues prior season and outdone Marvin Harrison Jr. this year.     SS Trey Taylor (Air Force) won Jim Thorpe Award in 2023 with strong leadership qualities in the secondary.  Taylor is related to Ed Reed.  After 9 weeks Taylor’s 88.5 coverage grade is second among Group of Five safeties while posting an impressive 78.8 run-defense grade.  Taylor overall PFF grade of 85.8.
    • My top 4 realistic draft picks.  Not sure we take a WR in Round 1 but would look for Roman Wilson in Round 3 and Luke in Round 5.  Swing a trade for multiple Round 5 draft picks and add another offensive weapon in TE Ben Sinnott whom I think is probably the third best TE in the class.    WR Adonai Mitchell (Texas) According to PFF, 110 FBS-level receivers in this draft class were targeted at least 55 times. He ranked 78th in yards per route (1.72), sixth in drop percentage (1.8 percent; one drop), 79th in contested catches (36.4 percent; 4-of-11) and 100th in YAC per catch (3.2). He caught 8-of-22 passes thrown 20-plus yards downfield.   WR Xavier Legette (SC) According to PFF, 110 FBS-level receivers in this draft class were targeted at least 55 times. He ranked fifth in yards per route (3.15), 18th in drop percentage (2.7), 49th in contested catches (47.6 percent; 10-of-21) and 29th in YAC per catch (6.4). He caught 13-of-24 passes thrown 20-plus yards downfield, good for an eighth-ranked 54.2 percent.   WR Roman Wilson (Michigan) - According to PFF, 110 FBS-level receivers in this draft class were targeted at least 55 times. He ranked 13th in yards per route (2.68), ninth in drop percentage (2.0 percent; one drop), 72nd in contested catches (37.5 percent; 3-of-8) and 67th in YAC per catch (4.6).   WR Luke McCaffrey (Rice) According to PFF, 110 FBS-level receivers in this draft class were targeted at least 55 times. He ranked 46th in yards per route (2.11), 32nd in drop percentage (4.1 percent; three drops), 11th in contested catches (60.7 percent; at 17-of-28, his 17 contested catches trail only Washington’s Rome Odunze) and 36th in YAC per catch (6.0).
    • FWIW:   At $6 million per that made MAC one of the top-12 paid players on the Colts 2023 roster.   Do you still think he’s cheap?  
    • Isn’t it time to look for a home run pick for the offense? Bowers would be that kind of pick. Having a dynamic TE would be huge and would arguably be equal to picking up a WR1 running mate for Pitt. If he’s available at 15 I think it’s a no brainer to pick him.
