Put simply, says Rod Thorn, "Indiana poses more problems than any team we could have gotten". Their combination of size, shooting, good coaching and playoff experience make the Pacers "a tough out". In a wide-ranging interview with WFAN, Thorn named the Spurs and Pistons as teams to beat and the Lakers as the team most likely to pull an upset. As for the draft, Thorn named LaMarcus Aldridge, Tyrus Thomas, Adam Morrison, Rudy Gay and Andrea Bargnani--in that order--as top picks.
