The Indiana Pacers recently spent the entire season trying to secure home court advantage throughout the Eastern Conference playoffs, and then they managed to lose it in one game. Honestly, a championship is looking less and less likely for Larry Bird's crew, and here are five questions that they will need to address in the offseason as a result.
You have to wonder if Larry Legend will put up with some of this for much longer. He has called out this group publicly many times, and he even went so far as to criticize Frank Vogel's handling of the team this year. I have my doubts that the Legend will continue watching this show.
He most certainly does, but something tells me that the Brooklyn native will want more than the Pacers have to give. We will just have to see how this one works out in the offseason, but one side might end up being disappointed.
Wow. I have not seen a young player's game fall off more from one season to the next than Hibbert's play from last season to this one. Clearly there is something psychological going on as well, but Hibbert really needs to go back to the drawing board on all levels. The level that I would start with? Rebounding.
It has been a strange year for Paul George, and his off the court issues have clearly seeped into his game a bit. He might be playing with a little bit too much confidence, which is kind of an odd thing to type. He needs to find some harmony in his personal life, and then he might just find some success in his basketball life.
Larry Bird's words earlier this season towards Vogel in the media spoke volumes about how this team has responded to him this season, and I wonder if there will be any changes on the coaching front. I hope not, because Vogel has done a fantastic job... but the tea leaves are definitely making me ask the uncomfortable questions.
