Hopefully we can find new GMs to run the ships of some of these teams.
Pacers had all the right cards fall into place this off-season......all the old contracts gone...the key players able to be re-signed due to money and history and happiness, the winning record to have all veterans that care about winning seriously look at them, and plenty of soft cap cash to get good players to come in and fillout around Hakeem/David. (Plus inactivity of the FA period by a good portion of teams helped as well). It was fun to try and land Bird...but in long term it was maybe better they didn't, and could get Kukoc plus more depth plugged into the equation.
Excited to setup their rotation, and them turn them on auto-pilot until injuries show up. Really need to see if they hang with the Bulls and Celtics and Bullets in the East that have epic backcourts. Front court matchups will nearly always favor Indy.
Thought process for this team:
PG: Green ~28 mins; Workman ~20 mins Cheeks inactive (Try and keep Green healthy until post-season) SG: Dunn ~16mins; MRR ~16mins; Birdsong ~16 mins (depends on need for all def...or Birdsongs offense desired) SF: Kukoc ~36 mins; Tyler ~12 mins; Person inactive PF: Robinson ~38 mins; Hinson ~10 mins; Ferry bench; Avent inactive C: Olajuwon ~38 mins; Breuer ~10mins; (might try and rotate to have Robinson-Olajuwon-Hinson rotate for all mins at the 4-5...so Hinson getting 20mins and Breuer just emergency when foul issues)
