The Pacers are 3-0 since a players-only meeting after Sunday's 25-point loss at Detroit.

JO- "We just really thought we needed to put aside differences, whatever they were, put aside the problems we had among each other with the staff or the organization or whatever it may be," O'Neal said. "The fact of the matter was that we still hadn't learned to play hard."

Now think about that....and maybe i'm just reading into it too much and he was generalizing the problems as a whole with labels, butwhat was really going on in the locker room, he lists problems between players, staff, and organization? sounds like a lot of turmoil in pacersland behind the scenes....let's hope it's behind us the rest of the year.

There's that angle, which appears to be on target. Then there's the related angle of why wasn't the meeting called prior to the last week before the playoffs and should it really have been initiated by AC?

It certainly shows Cro's value to the team. I don't believe any rationalization for the meeting coming so late that suggests the team had not had enough time to gel since the midseason trade and injuries, etc.

At least we're finally winning the games we should win! I think Cro is a big part of that he's played great. JO's getting his timing back. Jackson has kept off the officials. Pollards played decent. I see us a threat if we can keep building on it. Clevelands not that good if we get the 5th seed and NJ we can beat if we're the 6th. I like whats happening right now. Its Easter weekend and we got Jesus Pollard how can we lose.
