I would trade Jermaine O'Neal straight up for Tim Duncan.

If I weren't such a fan of JO, I would do it, but I am, so no, I wouldn't do it.

I'd trade any player in the NBA for Tim Duncan. He's just so solid, its not funny. All he needs is a decent FT shooting coach.

NO!I like TD don't get me wrong but J.O. is what 24 and he averages 20 and 10 and is STILL not in his prime.

Yup. However, I do want to add that I still think JO is still improving, while I think TD's reached his peak.

So, Peck, when are you gonna get to trading Rick for Larry Brown, Donnie and Larry for Jerry West, or the Simons for Cuban? Good luck trading David Craig or Boomer for anybody, but I think you could get a good percentage on trading the Pacemates for Utah's dance team.

Sure would. I'd feel pretty bad about dumping JO though (on a personal level, not basketball level)

Tim D and KG are the only guys I would trade JO for. They are better players right now, JO can be better eventually maybe, he is an amazing bball player. I like LamarO too, I think he is 4th best. I'm not including shaq, because although he is the most dominate guy in the NBA, he is old and aint gonna last too much longer. 2 years tops for shaq

The best player in the league? You betcha.

BTW Peck - when you tab the stats for these, make sure to do a comparison of Pacer vs non-Pacer fans.

I'd do it.

My logic, compared to those who wouldn't do it, is more of a 'win a championship now and not gamble on the future' thing.

Sure, JO could get as good or even better than Tim Duncan... or not. Duncan is ALREADY on par with Tim Duncan. :)

No question in my mind. The Pacers do that and they can lock up 3-4 consecutive titles.

Actually, Jermaine will be 26 when the season starts.

10/13/78

This is an easy decision. Of course you trade anyone in the NBA for Tim Duncan, he's that good.

Tim Duncan was born 04/25/78, less than six months before JO.

The age differential arguement doesn' t work well.

Right, and Jermaine's actually been in the league a year longer than Duncan.

Do you all think that Jermaine can lead us to a title? That's all that matters. Anything less than one NBA championhip during his 7 year contract makes him not worth 126 million. We all know he will always be a 20/10/2 block guy, and that's all fine and dandy in the regular season, but he has to lead us to an NBA championship to be worth 126 million dollars. You dont pay a guy 126 million for good regular season stats, you pay him to lead you to a title.

Tim Duncan has proven that he can lead teams to NBA championships, as he has done it twice. And has Duncan reached his "prime" yet?

This is a no brainer. Tim Duncan is the best player in the NBA.

NBA.com says Duncan was born 4/25/76, not 78.

Agree. I don't think JO will ever be as good as Duncan is now.

Oh my bad.But the only reason I wouldn't trade J.O. is becuase he is still improving every year.I think now with a full summer off he will increase his %'s.

For pure basketball reasons this is a no brainer but I personally think JO fits in better here. It just feels weird thinking of Duncan playing for anyone but the Spurs. Besides like other people have said JO, is two and a half years younger than Duncan and could eventually become as good or better. I think more than skills or talent or anything, it's Duncan's decision making which sets him apart from JO or even KG.

Yes I would trade J.O for TD.

But the amazing thing is that we are even comparing the two players. Just shows how fortunate we are to have J.O and how good J.O is.

Exactly. I also think if JO had made the Olympics trip, the outcome against Argentina might have changed.

6th man, you bring up an interesting point. There were times when I thought that J.O would have been more effective than TD during the Olympics because J.O has more variety in his game. KG really would have helped even more because he has more variety than J.O.

I was thinking the same thing. Oh well, didn't want JO pulling a Reggie anyway.

Weird, my post disappeared.

Anyways I disagree. JO is younger and improving. Duncan has reached his peak already. JMO

Yup. JO for Duncan is a no-brainer. At least in my book. :cool:
