Al says that yesterday's game as a Warrior was "the most fun he's had in his career."

He threw up 21 shots and hit only 4. I'm sure he's having fun. I could do that out on my driveway and have fun too. Your team LOST, Al! How can he be so selfish to say that he had so much fun while missing 17 of his shots. I'm sure his teammates love that "he had fun" while they lost. I hate to say it, but I'm kind of glad that selfish attitude is gone (in part) from the Pacers.

That is too funny. I'm pretty sure any player in the league who got to play a fast break, no defense style of play where they just jacked up 3's and long 2's all game would have fun too.

LOL..I read the thread title,and I was going to post the same thing you said.Give him a couple months playing with Baron..and he will be mad that 90% of the offense goes through BD.

Goodbye to the cry babies...time for this team to play basketball..lets get to it!

ok, I see, everytime one of these cats says anything in the media about RC or the Pacers, you guys are going to post it on PD. Who cares? Lets talk about the team we have.

Because indirectly they are crapping on our team, franchise and coach.

And while beying a reasonably critical fan I can not tolerate BS from former players when it's this stupid and aimed at "us".

Why are former players all of a sudden hating on the Pacers organization? This didn't used to happen; in fact, it was always the opposite, with players having nothing but nice things to say about us. Some of them even came back for second stints. Eh, perhaps we're doing something different? As fans?

Some of them including AL - his second stint didn't last too long though.

You know, its a good thing we're not going to have capspace for the next 50 years, because after all of this no free agents are going to want to come here.

Harrington and Jax are vets and I think a lot of players respect their opinion, combine Indiana's boring rep with this crap and we're gonna have trouble convincing guys they want to come here.

It looks like Utah is not having any trouble improving their team thru the draft and trades. Salt Lake is one of the very few NBA destinations lower on a free agents wish list then Indy, but they are doing OK.

$,$$$,$$$ and oppertunity often speak the loudest when it comes to free agents. I'm not very worried about what Al Harrington has to say. In the end, he is still a player that the sad sack Atlanta Hawks practically gave away. The Hawks thought so much of "Baby Al" that they gave him away for a first round draft pick and to create a little space on the roster for a rookie.

As for Jax, I wish him the best in his new situation, but I don't think his name is going to carry as much credence when it comes to detering FA's or anyone else from the Pacers.

I'm not one to criticize coach Carlisle, but at some point you have to wonder exactly how happy the players are to play for him. A boss (the coach) that knows how to be a boss while taking care of his employees (the team) = happy employees(the team), happy employee's = happy customers (us)... If you know what I mean...

Being one of those to criotsize RC a lot, this only makes me soooo happy Al is gone, for good I hope.

Whilst I was not happy to see him come back and wondered why the blackhole was allowed to come and F up our team for a second stint, doing so enough in the year he was traded to basketball hell, his comments make it I dearly hope he misses the playoffs (most likely) and will never ever get to play on a real team again.

He's just not worth it.

You know how much I care about how much Fun a player has on the team I root for? None. I certainly don't want them to hate it, but fun? This is there job, it is work. It is called work not fun. I htink this is part of the problem with the NBA. THIS IS NOT A PARK PICK UP GAME FOR FUN! It is work, and sometimes it will not be what you want. I simply don't care about what players want anymore than what my boss cares about what I want. I am tired of these very well payed prima donnas complaining. Screw em. I just don't Care about what AL wants. I cared about what the team needed, he did not and now he is gone. Next!

Anybody read the WHOLE quote?


"I know I was 4-for-21, but that was the most fun I've had in my pro career," Harrington said. "I love playing that style. I apologized to my teammates ... because if I'd made three or four more shots, we're probably be in here smiling." (emphasis added)

Nice spin in this thread though.

Some of them even came back for second stints. Eh, perhaps we're doing something different? As fans?

I think we are! I think we've become intolerant of perceived lack of effort, off court silliness and disruptive players. Out nice run in the 90's transformed the fan base, inho, into a smarter, more savvy one. I think we ask a little more of or players because we see what we are capable of doing.

As fans, we let players hear about it, whereas in the past, we may have looked the other way, grateful to be competitive. Now we hold our players to a higher standard.

I think it's funny that players are cracking on the organization. Why? because this league has become so ego-driven, on the players part. Stern has been trying to clamp down on the hip-hop culture that has permeated the NBA and a by produce of that culture is exagerrated machismo. PLayers bristle at being told what to do and how to play and anyone who do have the audacity to tell THEM what to do is the bad guy.

Our team wants to run a structured offense and that stiffles player's ability to show themselves off, giving them the limelight, and hence, enhancing their "fun."

Yeah, I think something's different. The players. Their sense of entitlement has gone through the roof.

Mourning :cool:
That was my reaction to it as well.

I mean it was one game, they lost the game, and Al shot the ball A LOT and horribly. How can he be "having" more fun in this short time, how can he even read how it is going to be at all without even playing with Baron yet?

And this stuff is why I made a big deal when AJ and AC slightly backpeddled on how great it was to be in Dallas once they came up short in playing time back in Indy. It will be the same with Al if he has more games like this and the fans start to give him the Dunleavy treatment for it.

hmm funny thing though.... we have been just as good overall during the same time period.. have been to the finals same number of times but made the ECF a lot more then they reached the WCF... over the same time...
Which is exactly why I never understood all the moaning and complaining about how the Pacers never do anything, stink, etc. Or the complaints about Walsh either.

I agree with Gnome's reaction completely.

Jackson Had Fun, Not AL...
