Nate McMillan will take over as head coach for the upcoming season and Bird has brought in several veteran players to help bolster Indiana’s offensive attack, including Jeff Teague, Thaddeus Young, and Al Jefferson. “We want a style where we can score,” Bird said. “I’d like to score 105 points a game or maybe 106, but still defend the way we have. “Nate’s got over 900 games that he’s coached in the NBA and he’s got a style…I think he’s going to do an excellent job for us.”

You think about Big Al, who I wish we could have kept. He helped change this franchise around big time from the day he got here.”
