These Questions were put forth in the CBS Sports magazine for each team: I will answer the Q yes or No.
Q: Can the Pacers Win the O'neal leading the team
A: Win what? The Title? No Way THe East? Nope The Central-No way
The Pacers are a good 25-35 win team and thats it- O Neal could be VERY GOOD secondary player- but he is NOT a number 1 option.
Tinsley, Dunleavy good options and maybe a number 3 in the right system but there is too much dead weight in Pacerland for them and O'Neal is just not a top flight superstar 19 and 10 is a great thing and any team will take it from thier top player- but to carry this much weight you need to be a Kobe or a LeBron- and O'neal is not even close.
I'm not even sure Duncan could will this team to a Central Crown.

O'Neal not a number 1 option? that is ridiculous. Hes paid superstar numbers and produces superstar numbers.
Will the Pacers win with O'Neal leading? Yes, they will win. They won't win very much, but they will win.

So you agree with me then
19 ppg- that is 30th in the NBA Right behind the immortal Eddy Curry
9.6 rpg that is 17th in the league- Behind the Odom, Gasol and David Lee.
Gasol by the way is 21st in scoring and 15th in rebounding.
is he a Superstar?
No, he is watching the lottery, just like the Pacers.

no i do not agree with you. all youre simply doing is looking at numbers. if you had actually watch any of their games, you would have seen that the rest of the roster is horrible and that this is a one man team. all the teams know this and they double team him and pack the paint.

Ok so let compare the Memphis Roster and the Pacer roster
Sorry I'll take the Pacers- I mean Rudy **** is going to be awesome- but at this point ill take the the Pacer Roster
and at 18,084,000 - OVER RATED
I'll take Gasol at 12,364,000 also by the way.
and you said "They won't win very much, but they will win. "
My point exactly- 25-35 wins but no shot at a **** title, Conf or NBA title.
