The Pacers have a great chance this year at making a deep playoff run or maybe even winning it all. With starting 5 of Hill/Stephonson, George, Granger, West, and Hibbert, plenty of able backups, and time left to trade around, the Pacers have the ability to make a long run in the playoffs against the East's dominant teams like the Heat, Knicks, and Bulls (if Rose returns at 100%). Pacer's fans, we have reasons to be excited for this year.

Collison and Barbosa aren't on the team?

This is a given.

If I was betting right now, I would put my money on Indiana to win it all (especially since they are getting 15-1 odds).  No exaggeration.

I wouldn't go that far but they will def be a factor but they will need a few balls to bounce there way to beat the Heat.

That still makes absolutely no sense.  They were a game away from beating the Heat in the ECF, unless Oden stays healthy, Miami did not upgrade at all.  Indiana made huge upgrades.  That do not need lucky bounces to beat the Heat.

I'm so sick of people acting like the series was so close, they got beat by 23 points in Game 7 and 3 out of the 4 losses were by double figures, they have a long way to go to catch the Heat and a few minor moves is not the exact answer to get the job done.

Adding Granger for nothing, replacing Augustin with Watson, replacing Hansbrough with Scola, and replacing Young with what's his face from NY are not minor moves.  Thy went from one of the weakest benches in the league to arguably the strongest.

Granger is not a minor move and Scola is arguable I guess but the others just don't scream big move to me.

Watson will be one of the best back-up PGs in the league, Augustin is terrible.  Copeland is a big pop of offense off the bench.  20 points per 36 minutes on .583 TS% is very, very good.

Augustin is terrible. I will give you that one, maybe I am undervaluing Watson.

Stephenson should start.  Granger will still get good minutes, and will play the end of some games, depending on match-ups.

Granger's scoring is the more sensible thing to bring off the bench rather than Stephenson's defense.
