[quote] However, the West is a much harder conference[/quote]
The Pacers are 6-2 vs. the West so far, with wins over 2 Western Division leaders, both on the road.
Their two Western Conference losses were to the teams with the best, and 3rd best records, respectively, in the West.

Bosh, by a wide margin. They can live without Wade's physicality, or his driving; they crater without the spacing Bosh creates, and his ability to backstop that defense with his mobility.
In terms of scheme, 90% of what they do focuses around LeBron and Bosh.

Someone once said of Rudy Gay, that he had the potential to be the best player on a perpetual lottery team.
I can't think of any better way to sum him up. It isn't that he is without skill, or that he's a bad athlete-- but there are just some guys who are never efficient, never leaders, and who ...

The only obligation is for her to express a change in the status of her consent.
If she says no, you don't get to determine if it is a 'real no', a 'soft no'', a 'hard no', etc. If you are slow to comply, you're still going to fall within prosecutorial discretion for being charged, if she is i...
