Enemy Lines: A rival scout sizes up the Pacers
Vogel has a pretty good connection with the players, who play hard and compete. He's done a great job with them defensively; they have a great mindset. Offensively, he's good enough. I would think a creative offensive mind could help them. After the Pacers lost assistants Jim Boylen [now a Spurs assistant] and Brian Shaw [now the Nuggets' head coach], Nate McMillan was an important pickup for their staff. I was surprised that McMillan didn't get a head-coaching job somewhere.
