trade for gary payton...
man, his game has really deteriorated in the last 2 years. i understand the laker's triangle isnt really the system best suited for him; but damn, he is getting killed....

im actually surprised at how bad he has/is playing

thoughts? comments?

It's not his type of Offense and I think he would be doing better on another team , I think his poor gameplay has alot to do with his unhappy feelings in LA. He also maybe feeling alittle pressure as him , sam cassell and another player all have some of legal case they are dealing with , think it's a assault case, my details are fuzzy on the situation but I know it deals with a altercation outside a exotic dance club.

Also if we made that trade Tinsley wouldn't have had the chance to improve this year. By the end of the season I thought Tins was better than Payton. And last season Payton would have made "the issues" a lot worse.

He's getting old, but his defense has deteriorated quickly.

At this stage, he's a rental. I'm glad somebody else is paying the rent, because I don't think he would help the Pacers *right now* as much as Tinsley does.

I wan't the Payton for Harrington trade, and I'm so happy it didn't go thru. Now we can get someone else for big Al. :)

Not to mention how much better that would have made Milwaukee having Al to team up with Ford and Redd. :o

Yup - I believe that happened up here in Toronto.
