Re: Pacers Daily Discussion

Frank Vogel signed a contract extension today.

Quote:
INDIANAPOLIS – The Indiana Pacers announced Monday they have signed head coach Frank Vogel to a contract extension. Per team policy, no terms were revealed.


Vogel is in his third year as Pacers coach after taking over on Jan. 30, 2011. Going into Tuesday night’s home game with Miami, Vogel has coached exactly 100 games, compiling a 62-38 record. Last season, the Pacers had a 42-24 record, fifth best in the NBA and reached the Eastern Conference Semifinals before losing to eventual NBA champion Miami.


"This is a good deal for Frank and the franchise," said Pacers President of Basketball Operations Donnie Walsh. "Frank has done a great job turning our team around since he became coach and deserves the chance to continue the work he and his staff have started."


Said Vogel, “I’m honored that Donnie, Kevin (General Manager Pritchard) and Mr. Simon (owner Herb Simon) have such belief and faith in me to be their coach in the foreseeable future. We’ve established a great connection with our community the last two years, both on and off the court and I look forward to continuing that."
I wonder how we would have reacted about a month ago.

Also, Sam Young is gone (bummed ankle) and we picked up a dude named Dominic McGuire for 10 days (no bummed ankle)

Re: Pacers Daily Discussion

I'm disappointed we cut Sam, but we were going to have to guarantee his contract soon. McGuire's kind of like a bigger Young, a solid rebounder and defender who keeps bouncing around because of his effort. Although, he can't shoot at all. I'd probably rather still have Young, but at least this opens a few minutes for OJ and we never again have to see Sam Young at SG.

Hell no. Making you a mod of the Pacers board would be an insult to the four of us that have kept this place alive (R-Star, Gonzo, Pacers Fan, and myself). You shouldn't be able to just come back out of nowhere asking to be a mod again when you haven't done a damn thing for this place in years. I understand this team went through some really shitty years but last season was our best season since Reggie left and you were rarely if ever around.

Re: Pacers Daily Discussion

Bad luck for Sam Young, but this is a business. McGuire played a bit for the Raptors earlier this year and he was decent so whatever no complaints.

And as much as we criticize Vogel, I think he's proven he's worthy of an extension. I wouldn't of said that a month or so ago, and I'm still not his #1 fan, but as of right now he's the right guy for the job.

Eh, just so you know, in the past the admins got together and decided to strip his powers. It was during the Kobe assault trial and he was editing anyone that had a negative opinion, when they complained to him he threatened to ban/suspend him. Ron doesn't like being challenged.

They did let him keep his "site founder" status to stroke his giant ego.

Re: Pacers Daily Discussion

I didn't love Sam Young, but he was a nice spark every once in a while and I feel bad for him. I hope he finds a team he can stick on and make a decent career.

As far as Vogel, there's still things that drive me insane, but you can't argue our recent streak. If I was him I would have pushed a re-up during that period. We play amazing on defense and terrible on offense, I hope Granger helps change that, but its something I don't see changing any time soon.

Re: Pacers Daily Discussion

And as far as mod/admin/whatever, its not like we really need it. There's only a handful of us posting on the Pacers forum. If anyone comes in here and posts shit we don't like we've been able to run them off by just ganging up and acting like dicks.

Its the real way to moderate a forum. "You better watch it or I might edit your post!"? Nah. I say "Hey buddy, **** you, get the **** out of my Pacers forum."

Re: Pacers Daily Discussion

I have a feeling we're going to get shown up at home tonight. Heat will come out with too much intensity.

Re: Pacers Daily Discussion

Sure hope not. I hate losing to them. If we can pull out a win it would be a huge moral booster for the team.

I think if we can pull some of what we had in the playoffs and absolutely shut down Wade, we can take this game.


I'm not expecting a win, but as always I think there's a shot. We're a good enough team that I think we can win against any team on any given night if we play to our strengths.


Then again if Lebron decides to go crazy, there's not a god damn thing anyone in the world can do to stop him.

Re: Pacers Daily Discussion

We've got a shot, but every game we lose to the Heat we get outplayed in the first quarter and they put it on cruise. Need to start hot, which is worrisome with our offense.

Counting on our offense for anything this year is worrisome.


The ideal game would see Hibbert put up big numbers once again. Would be nice, but I'm not going to count on it.

Hibbert's wrist is still hurting from playing with himself too much.

Lance Stephenson sucks.

No for real, I like your policy, maybe Drizzay can make this his Kobe bashing forum since he doesn't have the Laker board anymore?

Well no offense to the admins, but nobody other than Basel does a damn thing around here so unfortunately I don't see any of them stepping up and doing that again.

Ron doesn't have the respect of many people on here so it's really sad to see people let him call the shots and slowly drag this place down.

Agreed. The 3 Man Band keeps this place in check.
