    That was quick. Didn't they just offer him?

    Agreed that Westbrook deserves more blame for last night. As for the shoulder injury, everyone is banged up this time of year. Just for once I'd love to see him take accountability for something. He's always throwing blame on everyone but himself.

    There's nowhere that I've seen where he's in the discussion. Gobert, Giannis, PG, and Embiid are the main names. I watched all but one of the games and I can assure you he consistently gets backed down with ease by opposing centers. Sometimes even smaller forwards/wings. It's hilarious. And the reverse is also true. Funniest thing I've ever seen last year was Myles calling for the ball with Kyle Korver guarding him in the post, and then he proceeds to not only fail to back him down, but Korver, that's Kyle Korver, actually pushes him out even further. Me and my friend just died laughing. The man is soft, always has been. I'm in several Pacers groups and that's a very agreed upon fact within them. While we're at it, your boy PG is soft too. And a clown, always deflecting blame to anyone but himself. I was almost as happy last night with that shot right in his eye than I would be if it was the Pacers hitting it. If you're keeping track, that's both years with OKC that he's been bounced in the first round of the playoffs. Soft players don't win championships.

    Elite defenders don't get scored on with ease. Myles does almost every time his man wants to back him down. I appreciate and acknowledge his importance as a rim protector. But again, there's a reason he's leading the league in blocks and still not getting any mention for DPOY.

    Good hire for them

    Working the offense to get better looks from 3 would help too. Hopefully Archie spends time reworking the offense this summer like he's done with the defense.

    He's not elite defensively, which is why he never gets discussion for DPOY. He gets bullied by a lot of other bigs in the post. He's a great rim protector. Not a great low post defender. Dude is charmin soft down there, very weak.

    Joey Brunk to Indiana

    Not a flashy pickup but a much needed one. I expect him to be one of those blue collar, hard working big fellas the Hoosier faithful falls in love with. Welcome aboard Joey!!

    Bet I know the exact play you're referring to. The one where Embiid caught a pass and proceeded to take two steps without dribbling the ball, scoring the and-1?

    With OSU picking up a commitment from 7 footer Ibrahima Diallo, you have to think this helps us with any potential interest in Brunk from the Buckeyes. That was my main concern was they would swoop in and attempt to snag him.

    Awesome game, two great defensive teams with two great coaches. Nice feel good story for Virginia and Guy.

    We've got to take advantage of the talented receivers we have. Really hoping the new OC opens up the playbook and that would be helped a lot by a new QB (sorry Peyton).

    By making the correct call?

    He wasn't fading away, that's why the foul was called because the defender slid under him and bumped him

    It was a dumb foul by Auburn, why fault Virginia for that?

    That's what I thought too. Not sure of the wording on that rule but in my eyes that is a travel.

    I think he just trusted too much in the senior to figure it out, that he felt Fitzner was experienced enough to put out there and eventually come through. Well, he didn't. It started off hot in game one and went into a downward spiral from there. He couldn't score, rebound, defend. Nothing. Sure Moore and Forrester had their issues. That much was obvious from their limited minutes. But with those deficiencies they also brought things to the table that our other bigs couldn't. More specifically Fitzner. I think Archie kept hoping Fitzner would start hitting 3's, something this team so desperately needed. It just didn't happen. And the two guys who played hard and showed some flashes when given the chance were glued to the bench. I just didn't agree with it. By no means is this a "fire Archie" argument from me. But this season was bad for a multitude of reasons and this is one I had an issue with.

    I'd easily take that shot over a year of Trendon (no offense to him of course)

    There's still one more player I wish he'd tell how it is
