Looks like we FINALLY got the Indiana Avengers alive and well. I like the look of some of the guys here, but would probably switch up a couple of roles. I would have Paul George as Iron Man as someone who can fly into the lane, and boost up to the goal to make a fantastic dunk. Therefore, that puts the role of Thor into Roy Hibbert, who can HAMMER home a dunk in the middle. Or HAMMER away a shot by the opposing team. David West as the Hulk is probably best suited for him. He’s a HULK of a man when taking the ball to the basket. There are those moments when you know West just wants the ball, demands it, so that he can get a score for the Pacers when they need.
Frank Vogel in the role of Nick Fury is perfect. Vogel is the coach of the Pacers as he’s the one out there leading the team the best way he can. He doesn’t get nearly enough credit for the job he’s doing. So now we have to find an blue and gold eye patch for Vogel to wear on the sidelines while coaching the game.
Lance Stephenson as Hawkeye is ideal. He’s a sharpshooter at times. He’s also able to fire a pass into the lane like an arrow from the bow. He’s got that eye on the court, where I think most guys don’t realize they’re as open as they are. Lance Stephenson really sees plays before they happen, so he has that sharp eye for basketball.
Finally, George Hill is Captain America in the sense he’s a floor general. Captain America was a soldier built to do whatever was asked of him. He led the way, just like George Hill does with his play. When Hill is on top of his game, this Pacers team is on top of their game. They all work together as the ultimate team. No real superstar. No ego putting themselves ahead. Each guy really cheers on each other from the bench and on the floor during the game. It’s amazing collection of talent that has meshed well together, and has a great chance to continue their roll in the playoffs. Now they have to AVENGE the game two loss tonight. They have to get back to the Pacers way. They need to get the fans rocking and rolling tonight. It’s all about the Blue Collar Gold Swagger in Indy tonight.
