Win Profile for the 2007-08 Indiana Pacers
This is the last installment of Remember the ABA week on Bucks Diary. Today is the Win Profile for the 2007-08 Indiana Pacers. The Win Chart shows 34.6 calculated wins produced, against 36 actual wins... so pretty good.
With this profile complete, I think I'm almost half way through the Association now. I have to chart every player on every team before October so I can use the results for my 2008-09 NBA Preview.

1. I remember making fun of Jeff Foster at one Bucks game. I shouldn't have. He's a hell of a player. He was the best performer on the Pacers last season with a Personal Won-Loss Record of 77-5.
2. The most productive Pacer was Mike Dunleavy, recording 8.2 wins.
3. The Pacers were smart to go after TJ Ford this offseason, and smarter still to deal Jermaine ONeal. Jamaal Tinsley and the backup point guards were collectively awful in 07-08, and O'Neal's offensive production really went into decline.
4. Kareem Rush got way, way more playing time than he should have gotten. His defense was terrible, and his offense was below average. It just shows how coaches can be decieved by shooters.
5. David Harrison was the worst Pacer by far. Why do they keep him around?
6. If Troy Murphy played defense, he would be very productive. His offense is stellar, but he's undermining it with weak play on the other end of the court.
7. Its pretty clear Danny Granger is more naturally suited to the 4 spot. He doesn't cover 3s well at all.
