Trivia Question: Who coached the Pacers in the season that Jerry Sloan started as head coach of the Jazz?

Answer: This is a trick question because four different men coached the Pacers in the season that Jerry Sloan took over as Jazz coach in December 1988 when Jazz coach Frank Layden resigned. This is a quote from the Pacers' franchise history page: "The 1988-89 season got off to a disastrous start as Indiana lost its first seven games and Jack Ramsay stepped down, ending a Hall of Fame coaching career that spanned 21 seasons and 864 victories. Mel Daniels and George Irvine filled in until the Pacers named Dick Versace as Ramsay's replacement."

Ah, but will JT come out smokin' or show the rust? He seems to be at his best after back-to-backs, and at his worst after a couple of days off...

Still, in the first game we played these guys this year, Marquis and Danny were both able to get to the hoop on Utah. An average game from JT would be OK.

does any one still actually have any emotional attachment to this current incarnation of the Pacers?

I honestly could care less if we trade every last person on this team. Every player has major faults and there is not one player who is above average in our starting lineup.

Though "not above average" is a bit over the top, we are just loaded with "good" and "okay" players. We're a team of role players with no superstars.

At this point, several teams have had a huge head start on you for Gordon/Beasley/Rose et al. You're not likely to catch them.

I have an emotional attachment to the Pacers, doesn't matter who's on the team. Seems we all do, are we wouldn't even bother making posts about them or even turn the TV to watch.

Do I care if we trade every last rotten player, no.... not anymore, but to say there is no emotional attachment would be lying.

indypacerfan54
01-08-2008, 10:53 PM
I guess I was a bit hasty stating there are not any players above average, there are 2 players above ave in our starting line up:
JO and Tinsley are injured wayyy more than the average nba player.

OnlyPacersLeft
01-08-2008, 10:53 PM
I think it's obvious...tinsley is the best player on this team.

Oh, come on. You have to admit that was nice.

Well at least Tinsley is back. That'll probably be the only positive from tonight.

seriously tinsley is the best we have! and if it sounds sad w/e...he's been pretty damn good for us this year with the exception of the hawks game.

01-08-2008, 10:58 PM
Of course Jeff misses the free throw.

Pacers games are like a bad car wreck. You don't really want to watch, but you can't help but want to see the carnage.

What a bull**** call. We did the same thing to the Jazz and got called for a blocking foul.

Terrible call on Danny.

Danny makes a lot of the SAME stupid mistakes.

Oh JO looks to have hurt his foot.

Evan_The_Dude
01-08-2008, 11:00 PM
Danny should contact Latrell Sprewell and pay him money to feed his kids and get his boat back in exchange for some stutter step taking it to the basket on the break knowledge. I'm half serious...

indypacerfan54
01-08-2008, 11:01 PM
OMG JO remembers he plays for us still!!!

Lord Helmet
01-08-2008, 11:01 PM
The lead is too big to overcome, the best we'll be able to do is keep trading baskets.

It's basically a wasted effort now.

Oh JO looks to have hurt his foot.
It'll match his game.

Pacemaker

Trade JO NOW!:mad:

OnlyPacersLeft
01-08-2008, 11:03 PM
JO is ALWAYS hurt...yeesh...injury prone or what! I mean damn! it's frustrating to see him limp after hitting that once in a blue moon fadeaway from the corner. Carlisle was a defensive type coach...you can't be both a running offensive team and a good defensive team it seems...I bet Utah ends up scoring 130

LG33
01-08-2008, 11:04 PM
Can't wait for Pheonix - bring em on!
My favorite part will be the Shawn Marion/Troy Murphy matchup. Should be real exciting.

indypacerfan54
01-08-2008, 11:04 PM
With some luck we will hold them to a respectable 75 pts by half time and MAYBE only be down a very managable 30

LG33
01-08-2008, 11:04 PM
I bet Utah ends up scoring 130

And then they'll probably put in 50 or so after halftime too...

There should be an underachieving player rule. If you have 5 stinky games on a row then your contract can be void by the team.

Maybe Danny well learn to hit a layup someday too.

Why shawne williams plays so little is beyond me...why we play no defense is beyond me...but hey these guys don't care...they make their millions and go home to their mansions.

indypacerfan54
01-08-2008, 11:14 PM
We should make a death pool on who will actually die on court first. You get bonus points for naming the lethal condition for both players.

I think it will be JO from the same disease that samuel l jackson had in Unbreakable.

If it turns out to be JT I think itll be pneumonia from a previous sinus infection.

Unclebuck

Alpolloloco
01-08-2008, 11:24 PM
Diogu isn't very good.

Some goes up for JO and Murphy.

I guess Diogu can match JO's 5 points and 2 boards quite easily. We play no defense so we won't miss JO on that end too!
