Well, here we go again this time it’s offical. Harrington has Agreed to the 6 year $57 Million dollar contract with Indiana. They decided to give up $2.5 million in Cash and a 1st Rounder.

More details to come, but it’s finally over !"

Sekou is a professional journalist. I don't think that he would spell official wrong. That's what tipped me to the fact that it was a hoax. Well that and Billy Knight's comments that would seem to indicate that there is no way for Al to be become a Pacer and that this is all Al's fault.

I would say I won't believe it until I see a picture of him in uniform, but even if Al hadn't already been here, we've seen that's easy to fake. I'd say I'll believe it when I see him playing on TV, but the things they can do with CGI nowadays, who knows. So, I'll say I'll believe it when I see it in person, but after that Phoenix game, it could be a long wait before that happens.

Two deals to be announced. Sign and trade of Al Harrington to Indiana. And Shaquille Oíneal to Atlanta for Marvin Williams, two future 1st round draft picks, a luxury suite for both Hawks and Thrashers games, use of Belkinís attorney, and future considerations.


Oh and hello from a Hawks fan of 30 years who has been auditing this board some during the Al saga and finally decided to jump on in.

Good luck to you folks!

I tell you what,I start this blog for everyone, and now people ruin it, by taking advantage.

I can’t comment on the deal that is currently nearing, look for tomorrow’s AJC special article on the Hawks, but probably nothing until Tuesday as far as firm details.

Looks like I will need to lock my name from being used or stop using the Blogs altogether.


By the way, it's amusing to me that someone feels so threatened by me that they have to make fun of me on an Atlanta newspaper's blog. I never realized I had such power over people.

Well if that was Sekou this time and not Hicks, I think he is referring to the "legitimate starting center" rumor for the Hawks and not the Harrington deal.

I agree with you, naptown. Sekou is about the best we get at the AJC, and some of you folks here trashing that blog up is pathetic.

I posted there pointing out some of the trash, particularly the reference to masturbation, apparently came from posters at this forum.

No...you misunderstand, once the hoax came out, one of us posted over there to show that it was a hoax. That's all the damage we've done. The whole reason we have this board is to be hoax and trash free...we were making a point...we've been through too much drama and too many sagas to have people messing with our minds like that.

I doubt it's from MEMBERS of the forum; more likely readers who don't actually post. I did the Sekou one to prove a point (the one that says hi to Pacers Digest), but past that to my knowledge none of our regulars have touched it (or I'd be shocked if it were one of them).

More likely it came from someone at The Star who's been banned from here.

Obviously that's not certain but I could come up with a couple of candidates pretty easily.

Fair enough, I only went thru the 30 minute join process here just to provide an (intended) helpful correction to the misinfo about the Atlanta radio interview being with BK.

When I saw a trashy post referencing a user from here, I assumed the poster likely came from here, but I can understand that guests here could have also done it.

I do appreciate Sekou's info and would hate for him to quit communicating with us in that space - that's why I wish folks (from wherever they come from) would behave at that blog...

I can certainly see where you would jump to the conclusion you did, but I really don't think the posts were from here other than the one Hicks made. There is a forum on the Indianapolis Star site (referred to here as RATS) that this site broke from a few years back. They are more of a renegade group than you'll find here, and also a home for the people that get banned by Hicks here. It would not be unusual for them to do what was done.

God those peopel at Pacers Digest are annoying. Stupid trashy Indiana hicks. Theyre all a bunch of cornfed mothershuckers especially that bafooniac Hicks and 58 year old lesbian grace.


I have a few guesses as to who it could be if it is a fake, and regardless of who, they need to grow the hell up.

And reading further, it's clearly someone (Chauncey most likely) impersonating jim as well. He whines about PD, yet he has no conscience when it comes to acting like a spoiled teenager rebelling against daddy.

And if it's GetOdom (for all we know it's the same person), same difference. Hypocrites.

GetOdom's not the same guy as Chauncey. Chauncey can be a jerk when he's in a mood, but GetOdom was a moron as well.

On a blog like that, though, who cares?

Don't sweat it. That was the point by whomever did it, to confuse readers and make it look like it was coming from here, just as he also tried to make it look like you and some other Hawks bloggers were stepping in.

He even threw out Pacers Girl, etc to add legitimacy to the BS about hearing it on Indy radio.


The problem with the net is that it allows 12 year olds to take the prank phone call to a whole new level. Or people that wish they were still 12.


As for Sekou, it sucks that the Star lost him to the AJC just as he was starting to dial it in. I really like his writing and his openess with his blog has been great. And then someone got PO'd or bored and had to ruin that, and then got PO'd at Hicks for calling out the hoax and proving it.

I'd think by now that it's pretty obvious that anyone whose real name is posted there very likely isn't the troll.

I can think of several people who would be candidates - but unless someone can glean IP addresses it's pretty much a matter of lining their names up on a wall and throwing a dart at it.
