PODCAST: Wrapping up the 2021-22 season, looking ahead to a critical Pacers offseason
25 wins. A top-nine draft pick. The need for an identity and a return to postseason play. Let's tie a bow on last season and look ahead to the summer.
The Pacers completed their worst season since 1984-85 with just 25 wins. A redirection and reset was necessary, but it cannot become the norm. It’s good to be back behind a microphone and talking with you once again. This one is just me — and there’s a lot of ground to cover.
Among the items discussed on this episode:
Facts and figures that define this past season.
The need for an identity, a leader and most of all, good health.
The Cavaliers failing the themselves and the Pacers, thus retaining their 2022 first-round pick.
Clarification on Rick Carlisle speaking out.
Missing out on the playoffs and a few Pacers motivated to go through that experience.
Why the Pacers have more open home dates in March the next two seasons.
Players' contracts situation.
