The Indiana Pacers are done! The #1 seed in the Eastern Conference and one of the best defensive teams in the league struggled for half of the season and limped into the and through the play-offs before being eliminated by the Miami Heat.

On paper, the Pacers should be a great team. They have a up-coming star in Paul George, a legit big man with Roy Hibbert and veteran leadership. Maybe add a piece or remove a piece here and there and this team might be a problem.

Star forward Paul George feels like he might now who needs to go

“I mean, I don’t know,” George said, following Indiana’s season-ending loss to Miami in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference finals. “That’s for [Pacers president] Larry [Bird], [GM] Kevin [Pritchard], for them to decide.”
He continued with a little more optimism for his teammate.

“It would be great, we came into this league together,” Indiana’s two-time All-Star small forward said. “It would be great for us to continue our journey together. He’s played a huge year this whole season and in this postseason. He’s definitely put pressure on us to make decisions going forward with Lance.”
