TJ Leaf: Hoosier Bred, Pacer Draftee, Basketball Stud

At 6’10, TJ Leaf will play power forward for the Pacers allowing Myles Turner to move the 5 position. This pick signifies that the Pacers are serious about transitioning to a smaller, faster team that can get up and down in transition. Larry Bird pushed for this transition in previous years but was unable to do so due to Paul George’s reluctance to play the PF position.

With his offensive efficiency, the Pacers brought in another player (ala Myles Turner) who can score but does not need the ball in his hands to score. Like Myles Turner, TJ has a knack for being in the right spot at the right time. Whether its back cuts, alley-oops, transition buckets, spot up jump shots, or offensive tip-ins – TJ just finds a way. Having this ability in Turner and Leaf allows the Pacers to bring in a more ball heavy player at guard in the future which should allow chemistry to develop.

And on my first Father’s Day, this poem means just as much to me as it did to Joshua Wooden, his son John, and each of Coach Wooden’s players.

Overanalysis of the IUBB Hire: Archie Miller vs Gregg Marshall’s First 6 Seasons

So I decided to do what any IU fan currently does best, overanalyze what Gregg Marshall’s first 6 seasons as a D1 head basketball coach and compare it to Archie Miller’s first 6 years (Archie coached 6 seasons at Dayton before becoming IU’s HC).

My hope was that Archie’s first 6 seasons would stack up fairly well against against Marshall’s first 6 seasons. This would prove to me that Archie has the ability to evolve in the caliber of a coach that Marshall currently sits at.
My fear was that I would find that Marshall blew Archie out of the water at the beginning of his respective career.

What I found was..
