View Full Version : Will JO and others thrive with Artest gone?

With Artest out of the picture, it will obviously serve to get others more touches. Perhaps our offense, once we gel with the new lineup, will actually improve in unforeseen ways? Perhaps JO will truly shine and Tins, Runi, Cro, Granger, etc. will have more breakout performances due to the new rhythm?
How will Jax end up with this new team? Our chemistry is less volatile without Artest, so hopefully this new found freedom will be just what the Dr. ordered. It's obviously a big relief for the players, the locker room vibe and the coaches, knowing that the biggest potential timebomb is difused.

As simply as I could put it, we'll be much more balanced. Jermaine will be our first option, but as many as 6-7 different Pacers could be the second leading scorer on any given night.
