*JO injury update*

JO was just interviewed by Jim Grey on ESPN (Thats why I chose to watch the game on ESPN tonight, for the exclusives :D ) JO said he DOESN"T NEED SURGERY. And he is improving. But, he will be out for the regular season. But, if the Pacers make the playoffs he should be able to play. When asked how early by Grey he said he is talking about the 1st round.

Nonono... after the timeout, one of the Lakers ran down the floor looking for the layup, but nobody else was playing. He got right to the rim when somebody yelled (you could hear it over the crowd) "STOP, YOU IDIOT!"

Then he turned around and walked back to the Laker bench, and the commentators compared him to a guy running 80 yards the wrong way in football.

I take back everything I ever said about Dale Davis not having much left in the tank. He is a man's man.

I'd love to play the Pistons with Dale/Jermaine/Artest vs. Ben/Sheed/Prince.

Well since he came in and scored I would guess he is fine.

P.S. I was reffering to Cro. I dont know about Pollard.

Can there possibly be any worse fourth-quarter player than Stephen Jackson? He's always clanking shots at the end of the game, and he just won't stop taking them.

Of course, the entire team is an atrocious fourth-quarter team. Hell, Kobe isn't even in the game and they're getting whipped.

Jeff and Dale can seemingly always be expected to grab a rebound when the team needs one. ..and here's Jeff with another offensive board, right on cue.

Yeah, I think Reggie thinks if he stays another year that he is holding the team back. Which some people have stated here :mad: Reggie said it is time for this young core of guys to mature and step up. Reggie Miller, the most unselfish player. EVER
