Very short commentary today.
Was able to catch some of the Bulls/Pacers game 2 last night.
I have to say, I'm impressed with the Indiana Pacers. For a team that finished 8 games below .500 for the season, they are really making the top seeded Bulls work.
That's a pretty nice roster they have there: Danny Granger, Darren Collison, Roy Hibbert, Tyler Hansbrough...no superstars, but lots of pretty good players. Even their backups are pretty good. TJ Ford, Mike Dunleavy, AJ Price, Josh McRoberts...
I really like watching them play. If that team had a superstar, they'd be fearsome!
Which is probably their problem, they are going to be too good to ever get a high pick, and they'd have to give up too much of their core in a trade to secure a star player. So they'll probably never go anywhere as constructed, which is too bad.
Now, if I can wrap my Tarheel brain around the fact that I heard "Hansbrough passes to McRoberts", during the broadcast last night, I think I have a "new" favorite team in the Eastern Conference.
Even if they are an 8 seed. Go Pacers.
