    Man if these standings hold to the end of the season the bottom half of each conference will be loaded and the top half (philly in east and Utah/Denver/Dallas) will have a real easy path the the conference finals

    Wonder how much this story has to do with the guy they let go is leading a confrence rival to a 4th seed? Maybe the pacers are thinking of letting Nate go and now are looking for ways to make it look like a move they have to do. Rather then firing coaches in back to back season and the guy they let go having success elsewhere?

    The bleacher report writer who did the Pacers/Nate story has a new book released this week.
    Coincidence? Or is his piece just generating free advertising for his new book?

    Obviously Indy is having some internal issues, it's spilled out onto the sidelines in-game - but there's a lot of bullshit in that story. All the anonymous sources reek to high heaven. Not one meaningful quote with a name attached to it. That's always a huge, huge warning sign. Lots of 'sources say' etc. Easy to write whatever you want with zero accountability doing that. Borderline unethical to throw a professional's career under the bus with so little substance to put on paper.

    They already had to retract the "TJ Warren trade request" bit because it got called out as false, TJ also had a 'quit using my name to push false narratives' tweet in response. The 'no one talked to TJ before they hired Nate' was also called out as false, they did do exactly that. NN and Raptors players are calling the Raptors segment bullshit. I don't know how many edits that piece has by now and it's only been 2 days.

    Sounds like some anonymous sources have an axe to grind. How far down the depth chart can a 'Pacers staffer' be? Is somebody in video tired of getting yelled at?

    Then the sideline thing was weird, it was Jeff Foster yelling at a third string centre. Nate helped calm the situation down. Per the Bleacher Report piece, Jeff is one of the guys who has a problem with Nate. How does that lead to him yelling at players on the sideline?

    Something's not going well in Indiana but there's way too much mess in that report. I'd take it with a huge grain of salt. Unless you think a relatively unknown Bleacher Report writer from NY has all the inside dirt on the Pacers organization. I'm pretty skeptical.

    When the Raptors last played the Pacers, all the Raptor players gave Nate a big hug after the game. Even OG went out of his way to seek out Nate's kids who came onto the court. Unless Nate completely changed his personality after becoming a head coach, it's hard to believe he's the Jekyll & Hyde that these articles are trying to portray. Something seems off here.
    His contract is guaranteed for next season so Nate is getting paid either way.

    Winning cures everything so if Indiana makes the playoffs Nate is probably safe.

    I read the article. I think it's complete BS. Someone is trying to get Nate fired. If you read the Raptors part of the reporting, ask yourself, do you really think LOWRY would allow that to happen?

    Not the media. Damn, this whole situation is just cringe.




    EDIT: RealGM deleted a tweet I posted that said Brogdon and Sabonis want Nate fired. Bizarre situation.
    Is there a link to this article?

    Feel bad for Nate. some of it is probably a little bit legit, although exaggerated. There is an agenda here. Never really seen anything like this before. Hope Nurse welcomes him back, but yeah he's done in Indiana.

    I think they go after Stotts once Portland finally fires him.

    So Nick Nurse and TJ Warren have both come out saying the claims made about Nate Bjorkgren are false. Sounds like someone in the media is trying to get Bjorkgren fired.

    Well, who knows. But I do have some trouble believing that guys like Adrian Griffin, Sergio Scariolo and JIm Sann were being pushed around or out-politicked by anyone.
