is that it was kept so quiet. Which is damn near impossible in this day and age. Props to Donnie, Bird, and Mullin for keeping quiet. They took advantage of having the ultimate cover of the AFC championship in Indy.

Mullin said they did the trade very quickly, and that it wasnt something they talked about for weeks.

I dont think it even had a chance to get out in to the rumor mills.

Either way it was some fantastic GMing by both sides.

Pacers trades never seem to have much leakage from the Pacers end.

I think it was Carlisle that said the talks got serious 5 days ago.

Basically I think we wanted Ike and they wanted Al. They wanted to get rid of two big contracts and we wanted to get rid of Jax. Everyone else was just throw-in's to make the trade work.
