I found it interesting when Kenny talked about the PG being the extension of the coach, and they both exclusively talked about Jarrett Jack, without mention of TJ. I don't know whether that's all they talked about, or if that's just the way it was edited.

Ha! What did you expect Phildog? This:

Kenny Smith: And now I'm joined by Coach Jim O'Brien...Coach, how are you?

JOB: (slumped in chair, disheveled) I long for the sweet release that death will bring.

KS: Uh...well. Let's talk about the Strengths of the Team. What do the Indiana Pacers bring to the table?

JOB: That's a good question. What do we bring to the table? (shrugs) Lack of hustle. Matador defense. Poor fundamentals. (reaches in pocket, pulls out a flask) You don't mind if I drink, do you?

KS: Uh...

JOB: Our players got good mustaches though. Damn good mustaches (shakes head and mutters to self)

KS: (Looks off camera, leafs through his notes) Well...let's talk about Danny Granger. He's having an all star year, what has he meant to the team?

JOB: If I didn't have Danny Granger I would kill myself (takes another drink out of flask)

KS: (starting to sweat) Larry Bird has been...

JOB: Larry Bird! Let's talk about Larry %$#@ Bird, shall we? Let's talk about the promises he made to me - like, "Oh, I'm going to get you a point guard this year," or "Dunleavy's fine, he just has some tendinitis, that's all." Let's talk about that for one %$# minute, huh Kenny?

KS: I think maybe we're done here. Thanks very much, Coach.

JOB: I'm in hell. (takes off tie, throws it in fireplace)


*** Actually, now that I think about it, that would be pretty awesome.

That was my takeaway as well.

Even if they did talk about TJ, I think the reason he was edited out was JOB saying off the record he'd prefer it. In fact, he may have given the interview with the stipulation that he not have to comment on T.J.

Then there's this: of all the other players to highlight other than Granger (obvious), the Network (or Kenny Smith or JOB, who knows) picks Jack. Perhaps jack is just looking that good from the outside. Or maybe someone is sending T.J. a sideways message.
