Yeah, I know, knee-jerk reaction. Ultimately, I guess I don't mind waiting. But this team isn't going to have any energy until after the trade. Everybody's just waiting for something to happen.

Yeah, it's a back-to-back. But the team flat-out has no energy. Nobody's engaged; everybody's just waiting to see who stays and who goes.

Nah no trade keep Ron around till next summer. This team is deep enough to not make the playoffs, but who needs the playoffs when you are as deep as the Pacers are.

At this point it is not a knee-jerk reaction. It's been over a month. Donnie needs to do something quick, but he won't, because like Jerm says....... we're deep. :sigh:

IM UPSET.

My patience no longer exists. It evaporated like the lead we had during the game.

Nice sig. :laugh:

But yeah, we probably won't even make a trade, and I agree by now it's not a knee-jerk reaction. It's been too long.

There are too many things wrong with this team, moving Artest isnt even the tip of the iceberg of what should be done. What a terrible game tonight, just dreadful.

I didn't mean a trade was a knee-jerk reaction, I meant this thread was.

I'll say this, though: I hope we trade AJ at the same time as Ron. Not because he's not a good player; he's at least decent. But Carlisle plays him in weird ways and it hurts us. I want to see Jack stay at the 2 with Fred backing him up. We got lots of mileage out of that. Starting AJ at the 2 isn't gonna get it done.

That LA trade I proposed is looking better all the time.

Back to the trade issue. Why is this all Donnie's fault? Doesn't Larry still have a job? Or is he back in Europe again?

I'm still OK with waiting. As the trade deadline comes closer, Donnie will get better offers. After the deadline there's still time enough to gel for this team. Maybe now they're all a bit distracted because of the long wait, but in the long run, we will get a better player by waiting a few weeks more.

I rather waite then go for a "Artest for Devean George and 2 second rounders" type of trade.

I hate the time it's taking too, but better to waite now and atleast hoping we ultimately can be better after the trade, then trading now and realizing that we won't be.

Regards,

Mourning :cool:

I don't think we're gonna wait til the end of the season. Reason being, if we nixed the Maggette trade bc he is going to be out all year then why wait? Why not pull the Maggette trade when it was proposed?

Thank you finally logic being applied here.

Pacers have received some pretty decent offers. We know Phil and Kobe want to trade Odom for Artest (although I don't think the Lkaers have offically offered Lamar yet, we know the Clips want to trade Cory for Artest. Those are pretty good type offers.

They do want to trade Odom for Artest?

Yep Kobe and Phil want Ron but the front office isnt sure about it.

I'm tellin ya, Ron/Cro/AJ for Odom/George/project makes too much sense not to happen.

How so? It only leads to an unbalanced roster.

In the future, we are either stuck with Danny playing behind Odom or playing Odom and Danny together and being stuck with most of our frontcourt playing outta position.

For this season, it moves us down a few spots in the draft.

Odom's a better 4 than 3. I'd be fine with a frontcourt of JO/Odom/Granger.

I wouldn't, not long-term.


If we did something like that as a 'patch' for this season, I'd be okay...

or you could go

PG/Granger/Odom/JO/Hulk

against big teams. i think if we could get Odom we would have a very mobile and flexible front court, somewhat simlar to Detroit.
