Indiana Coach Slick Leonard would like to win some games, sure, but he concedes, "On paper, we're the weakest team comin' in. Maybe even weaker than the paper." The Pacers are not going to lie down, but Leonard does have this intriguing thought in the back of his mind: if the Pacers should somehow finish last in the West and win a coin flip for the No. 1 pick in next year's draft, why there's a pretty good center just 45 miles down the road in Bloomington, name of Kent Benson. Throw Benson in with the amazing Billy Knight, voted the second-best forward in the ABA last year (behind Erving but ahead of David Thompson) and the Pacers' outstanding defensive guard, Don Buse, and they'll have a club something like the one that used to play for the ABA championship. Right now, with second-year man Dan Roundfield at center replacing the injured Len Elmore, Darnell Hillman, Wil Jones and Steve Green the other forwards, plus Darrell Elston, Mike Flynn and the veteran Freddie Lewis at guard, the Pacers look like they're moving, ever backward, toward that pot of gold.
