NBA What-If Wednesday, Part 3

Unlike the NFL, basketball fans have a whole week to talk about how bad or good our teams are. The teams we are looking at now have some of the all-time “good stats, bad team” guys and are also a few steps away from becoming good. The teams I’m giving an upgrade to are the Grizzlies, the Bulls, ...

NBA What-If Wednesday: Part 2

Happy Wednesday and welcome back to another edition of What-if Wednesday: NBA Edition. If you didn’t read that in a deep voice, you missed my point of adding NBA Edition.

Pacers Report Card through November

The Pacers can easily be mistaken for an infirmary at this point, as most of their players have missed games because of various injuries. However, this has not stopped the Pacers train from chugging along, as they’re currently sitting with an 8-6 record and with a point differential of 4.3 points ...

Pondering the Pacers: Way too early report card

The Pacers have been bad to start the season. Even with a win on Wednesday, it has not looked good. That being, beating Brooklyn while enduring the loss of Myles Turner impresses me as well. That being said, let’s get to the grades: Impressive Malcolm Brogdon, A Were I to declare a standout player ...

Pondering the Pacers: Pacers have room for improvement

The Pacers lost their home opener on Wednesday night to the Detroit Pistons. It was a close game, as the final margin was 119-110. However, there were some concerns that I had before the start of the season that popped up in Wednesday’s game.  Cons For starters, Andre Drummond completely pantsed ...

Turner’s FIBA play could foreshadow upcoming season

Myles Turner has had an up and down FIBA World Cup. It might foreshadow how he will play in the regular season and playoffs this year. For me, it showed how he might fare this season, particularly without Thaddeus Young.  Turner has a game that might best be described as ‘finesse’. Turner is a ...

Hoosier State Hoops: Boston Hoards Indiana-Developed Talent

The Boston Celtics stole the draft for the state of Indiana, selecting Indiana’s Romeo Langford in the first round and Purdue’s Carsen Edwards in the second round. I think the both of them could fit in very well in the long term as it seems Kyrie Irving and Al Horford will leave in free agency.    Romeo ...

Pondering the Pacers: Indy had their chance

There I am, sitting in my living room as Wesley Matthews is about to inbound the ball for a potential game-tying shot. I’m feeling good about the Pacers’ chances, even though the game slipped away from them in the fourth quarter. Instead of tossing it into Bojan Bogdanovic, Matthews decided to ...

Pondering the Pacers: Smart’s Injury Works in Indy’s Favor

Can Marcus Smart swing a playoff series? No. Does he scare opposing defenses? No. But will the Celtics feel his absence in the first round against the Pacers? Absolutely. Smart is the type of player that every team would love to have. He’s one of those guys with an irrational confidence and a pesky ...

Pondering the Pacers: Bring on the Celtics

It’s Game 7 of the 2018 Eastern Conference Finals. Jayson Tatum just baptized LeBron James, the roof of the TD Garden is about to blow, and Brad Stevens is flexing a Jimmy Neutron-esque IQ. The Boston Celtics came within one game of the NBA Finals with a 20-year-old rookie as their best player, ...
