Jared Wade of EightPointsNineSeconds.com joins the podcast today to discuss the dominant Indiana Pacers. The Pacers are off to a fantastic 13-1 start and have been arguably the most dominant team in the league. How have they developed the players they have into this seemingly unbeatable unit? Did Paul George's development seemingly happen over just one summer? How did Roy Hibbert become one of the best centers in the NBA? How did they get Lance Stephenson to contribute?
How good can the Pacers be this season? After coming so close to getting back to the NBA Finals in 2013, they've managed to come into the 2013-14 season on a mission to destroy the competition. Do they currently have the league's Most Improved Player, the Defensive Player of the Year, the Coach of the Year, and a legit MVP candidate? Can this translate into toppling the Miami Heat and winning the NBA title?
We discuss all of that, plus the scary leadership of David West, how great Frank Vogel is, and life in South America.
