Is ESPN Blind? Predicts Pacers Will Win 33 Games Next Season

Even I’d be scared if I were ESPN, just look at Stephen Jackson with that gun!

Now this ticks me off. I have so much respect for ESPN, and before I write this post, I hope you understand that ESPN. I am not trying to harm you or in any offense that may hurt your feelings and it will end you up like the saddened and in what I think is high, Stephon Marbury, and record yourself doing the most absurd and out-of-control things on Justin.tv or some TV broadcasting crap thing like that.

So I just want you to know that. I am a very nice man. Not this time. Right now I am very pissed off. As Jared Wade of Eight Points, Nine Seconds brought to my attention, ESPN has ranked the Indiana Pacers as the twelfth best team in the Eastern Conference and predicts them to be 33-49 coming into the 2009-10 season. And the most retarded thing is that he predicts the Charlotte Bobcats to win two more games then the beloved Indy Pacers.

THE BOBCATS! THAT’S RIGHT EVERYBODY, THE FREAKING BOBCATS! We have destroyed the Bobcats last season. And not to be mean to Bobcats fans or homers, but I do have a good amount of interest in the team but I will always root for my Pacers about a billion times more, but don’t worry, the Cats are in my Top Five favorite teams, so don’t be hating.

But come on! 33 games! It’s outrageous. Indy hasn’t sunk that low since 1989! 20 years, two decades, one more year and you can go out and drink! It just sucks. I am not happy about this decision. Let’s take a look at this millennium and see what the Pacers have done, says Wade:

1999-00: 56-26 (.683)
2000-01: 41-41 (.500)
2001-02: 42-40 (.512)
2002-03: 48-34 (.585)
2003-04: 61-21 (.744)
2004-05: 44-38 (.537)
2005-06: 41-41 (.500)
2006-07: 35-47 (.427)
2007-08: 36-46 (.439)
2008-09: 36-46 (.439)

But no offesne, this makes ESPN look like a complete dumbass:

For three straight seasons, the Pacers have been the East’s best lottery team. Alas, our panel doesn’t see their inglorious run of ninth-place finishes continuing, as Indiana looks like No. 12 material to ESPN’s experts. The biggest issue seems to be a depleted talent base unreplenished since the Pacers’ recent glory years.

I am sorry if I hurted ESPN’s feelings. I stand my case for the Pacers. They will be a playoff-caliber team. And with Mike Dunleavy returning from injury, Indy is going to be a true powerhouse team. Watch, you’ll see. They may be a first-round exit, but no way in hell there is a 33-game win season.

Not in my man, and surely, not in yours either. Give your opinion, I’d like to hear what you think. Comment below and give the opinion! Your feedback looks worthy to read.
