I don't think they are anything special yet many people think they'll finish top 3 in the Eastern Conference. I know Chicago will be without Derrick Rose for an extensive period so I know the Pacers can win their division but still, I don't see why so many are sold on them.
I think they'll finish ahead of us. They have a team built for the regular season. Plus, they made some moves this summer that went under the radar. They added a lot of bench depth. I still wouldnt fear them in a playoff series though. That's when your stars shine and they really dont have that go to assassin.
