Which Indiana Pacers frontcourt player is most poised to break out this season?

To say that the Indiana Pacers will have a new look in 2015-16 is a drastic understatement. Just eight players from last year’s roster are returning this season and one of those is Paul George who appeared in just six games last year and another is Shayne Whittington who logged just 108 minutes ( Paul George, George Hill, and Ian Mahinmi are the only three players left...

The Indiana Pacers’ roster overhaul is nearly complete. Following David West’s departure from the team, Indy has changed their identity completely. The transition to a small-ball, high-tempo team has begun much faster than seemed possible even just a few months ago. The results are exciting, but also quite worrisome. How competitive of a team will the Pacers be? How long will...

Forget the pick and roll. The Indiana Pacers are planning to bust out the picket fence.

Paul George As Stretch 4 Gives Indiana Pacers Best Chance to Win

Indiana Pacers president of basketball operations Larry Bird previously said small forward Paul George will slide into a stretch-4 role during the 2015-16 season, and the Hall of Famer isn’t straying from that. According to the Associated Press via ESPN, Bird repeated his thoughts when the team announced the addition of three players. Bird said: “I’m not going to get into...

Pacers ink big man Jordan Hill

This is a deal I wanted to happen for two reasons. The first is that there is basically no one left on the market for the Pacers to sign that would provide an upgrade to existing big men Ian Mahinmi and Lavoy Allen (rookie Myles Turner, as good as he’s looked in Summer League, remains an unknown). It’s not clear that Hill, who turns 28 this month and is entering his physical...

Bird deserves more blame than Hibbert for Pacers’ woes

Some Indy fans aren’t going to like this article. Most will probably disagree. Nevertheless, I’m going to call it like I see it. First off, let’s be clear, there is no doubt that Roy Hibbert has struggled over the past two seasons. His collapse down the stretch of the 2013-2014 season and into the playoffs is still one of the most baffling reversals that has taken place among...

I wasn’t optimistic that Stuckey would re-sign with the Pacers despite him expressing an intention to stay in Indy and help the team that rebuilt his image and career last season.
