    Evans will not start, unless Bojan gets hurt then Tyreke could slide into the SF position. Evans will push for roughly 24 to 27 mins per game IMO. Since he does have a injury risk, I think we will see him playing longer stretches to end the first half and ending the game. The closing group will be Vic/Tyreke/Bojan/Thad/Myles with Collison or Cory in at some times depending on game flow and game planning. This gives you three respectable 3 pt shooters in Vic/Bojan and Myles. With Vic and Tyreke it gives you two legit playmakers. With Vic/Tyreke/Thad/Myles this gives you good defense.

    really hoping TJD decides to announce his decision soon and not just announce he's now down to 2 universities

    Yes they did bring in those guys for the bench, but I believe that Tyreke will play more times then not going down the stretch in the 4th quarter to prevent defenses from circling in on Vic. This will make the defense respect Tyreke as opposed to Cory or Darren when they can sag off and stay closer to Vic. I can see it going both ways with Vic getting more ppg but I could see it being under as well.

    I could easily see this happening, especially with the season he had last year. I'm not so much worried about Vic, its Myles. Yes I know Myles is still young, however I think this is a very big year for him, lots of money on the line for next offseason as well

    It def showed when Vic missed a game, the leadership wasn't quite their nor was the intensity or scoring. I think if Vic misses any games(knock on wood) I think the team has a lot better chance in winning a few without him. My top prediction for the east at the end of the year(#1 to #8): Celtics/Raptors/Pacers/76ers/Bucks/Wizards/Heat/Hornets

    really? I would like that, any specific reasoning behind your prediction?

    I agree, I am going with under and I mean slightly under at around 21.6ppg. I think Turner picks up a few more points(12.7 in 2017) and ends up around 15ppg or 16ppg in 2018, Tyreke adds legit scoring from the bench that this team has been missing for a few years(my guess around 12 to 13ppg, Sabonis will pick up a few more points.

    over/under Vic at 22 ppg this year.

    right now IMO: LBJ, Durant, Westbrook, Curry would be my top 4 in the NBA
  10. Tom Crean hugged someone, who cares if he hugged this guy or shook his hand during an introduction between the two. Yes IU is an Adidas school but come on.

    About time to start actively watching Brooks twitter account! I am excited about this upcoming season let alone the excitement that is building for the 2019-2020 season assuming we get TJD and Brooks to go with Franklin!

    Armaan Franklin Commits to IU

    Since Franklin is going to be the first to commit out of our 2019 top targets(fingers crossed it is indeed IU), just playing around with the class calculator on 247, with Franklin/TJD/Brooks(assuming Brooks and TJD chose IU) it gives us a 62.93 class rating which would be good enough for the 3rd best class currently.

    Archie knows what the state of Indiana produces, he coached next door at Dayton for some time. He's putting pressure IMO on the recruits inside the state saying we want you, but we cannot wait until a last minute decision(example late spring) so we will recruit outside of the state if we do not have an answer that puts the coaching staff say in a uncomfortable place/stance .
