The struggles of the Indiana Pacers have been well-documented throughout the last two months.
Many wrote their poor play off, especially after they still managed to finish with the best record in the Eastern Conference and own home court advantage throughout the Eastern Conference playoffs.
It seems like leadership has been a problem for the Pacers. According to Mitch Lawrence of The New York Daily News, forward Paul George and guard Lance Stephenson have become the leaders of the team while veterans like power forward David West and point guard George Hill are forced to sit back and watch.
George is the team’s best player and Stephenson has a bright future, but the Pacers need their veterans to have a bigger voice.
