-----------------------------------

I expect Orlando to bow out gracefully in 4 games. After their sweep the question will be who stays in Orlando? SVG? or Dwight? Its gonna be a rough long offseason for Magic fans.

Not going to lie, haven't seen much Pacer basketball this year but I do know the loss of Howard will be big for Orlando. That's not to say they were playing that well with him.

I got Pacers in this one. After seeing them play really well last year vs the Bulls I am sure they will bring the same energy.

Pacers are legit. They got an athletic fast young team that is pretty deep. It's good to see them finally turn it around after years and years of sucking in the 2000's. Their playoff appearance last year and #3 seed this year show you they're on the right track.

Pacers in 5. Without Howard, the magic will rely to much on the 3 ball as their inside game is weak now.

Stan Van is fired immediately after this series

Its actually really surprising how successfully the Pacers built their team without high picks or big free agents. Danny Granger, Hibbert, Paul George were all mid 1st round picks, while Collison and George Hill were both traded for. You dont see many teams pull that off successfully

The Pacers are the team we need to emulate...them or OKC. The Pacers sucked for years, pretty much 2000-2010, but Larry Bird stuck with his plan and got the team on track. I see us going the same way, but if we can get a squad like this Pacers squad, it'll be worth it.

    • A pro? Cool. Just quit crying in the panthers main forum about the quality of threads and talking about how you're going to leave. That's not what a troll does. If you're going to troll troll right
    • Naziism wasn't really socialism and in fact one of their first orders of business was to eradicate Communists from Germany. Also, trying to meld Nazis with socialists is disingenuous because the issue with Nazi Germany wasn't their economy which actually recovered quite well under Nazi rule, but the first part of their name.  "Nationalist".  That is what drove them to war crimes and mass murder of Jews and immigrants. And the party that currently most mirrors a form of nationalism close to Naziism is the Republican Party.  With heavy anti-immigrant, anti-Muslim, criminalization of minorities, etc etc rhetoric.  
    • Looked at both your posts, they didn't improve so I will pick this one. Cherrypicking a stat or six game period that was decent hardly justifies that we were middle of the pack. First of all this discussion was about cornerbacks not defensive ends so your run defense and sack stats means little. Newsflash. We were top 10 in rush defense because teams didn't have to run on us when they could pick up chunks in passing the ball. We were 26th in number of rushing attempts by the opponent meaning 25 teams had the opponent rush more times than we did.  And we were second in sacks for the same reason. Teams passed all the time on us giving us many more times to sack them.  We had the 6th most passes thrown against us. We were second in sacks behind Arizona- 47   to their 48. But they had 547 attempts against them versus our 612. So we had a sack for every 13 attempts. Arizona had a sack every 11 attempts. Even Buffalo which ranked 9th in sacks with 39 had the same one sack for every 13 passes attempted as we did. Teams completed passes almost 70% of the time which also ranks us 29th. We were tied for 22nd with 4 other teams in giving up 7.5 yards per pass play.  We were 21st in yards surrendered in total defense. And in points surrendered we were 26th not 15th. That was offense not defense that was 15th. With all the offense and Shula bashing I can understand why you might think the defense was better than the offense but it was the other way around. TL,DR Wrong we are one of the worse defenses in the league no matter how you look at it.
