The real problem isn't necessarily Gus Johnson - he's bad, but that's kind of to be expected. The problem is that Fox doesn't have anyone to replace him with, because the people they have who are supposed to be real soccer experts are all horrible too. I honestly probably follow fifty people on Twitter who could do this job better than Eric Wynalda. Warren Barton is awful too. Ian Wright's probably the best guy they have and he's barely coherent most of the time. Whoever they have assessing talent clearly has no idea what they're doing.

Eric, you may need to change your bio. I don't know if this is "basketball purgatory" anymore.

Another interesting thing is the fact that Indiana has quite a bit of amateur basketball talent, both in terms of native high school players and college players (IU, Purdue, Butler, Notre Dame, etc.), and while obviously the draft keeps the Pacers from capitalizing fully on that, it may be something that they can exploit in the free agent market. Is Indianapolis the most attractive place for a young, wealthy person to live? Of course not; I'm a life-long resident of Indy, but I fully recognize that there are tons of places an NBA star (or for that matter, I) would prefer to live. But if that NBA star went to North Central High School and played at Indiana University (maybe you can tell I'm targeting a specific young shooting guard here but he's an example that can be adjusted, I could be talking about Cody Zeller or Marquis Teague just as easily), maybe the Pacers would be more attractive to him.

Or maybe I'm delusional, and it's all about the money. Either one could be true.
