My friend that lives about an hour away from Denver (moved to there from Indiana) will be at the game, decked out in Pacers gear. Hopefully TNT shows their signs. :)

Lord Helmet
03-03-2005, 08:25 PM
no ron artest this season
Right out of the mouth of Sager......

But, wasn't that question asked during December? Sager said Walsh asked Stern if Ron could possibly play in the playoffs in December and Stern said no.

I'm not sure I trust the Sager report.

We are kind of struggling out of the gate.

Jermaniac
03-03-2005, 08:35 PM
What did Sager say? I wasnt really paying attention to what he was saying, all I heard was Ron had a meeting and didnt talk about reinstatment at it, then I missed what he said after that.

Ragnar
03-03-2005, 08:38 PM
I thought Sager said he spoke with Donnie and that Donnie confirmed that Ron would not be back this season.










Edit* Damn we need Jamaal back.

ImReppinBtown
03-03-2005, 08:40 PM
he did

obnoxiousmodesty
03-03-2005, 08:43 PM
Neither team is playing good defense.

The refs have dominated the game.

It hasn't helped that the Pacers left their defense in the Fieldhouse.

Jermaniac
03-03-2005, 09:09 PM
What kind of dumbass turnover was that good God, AJ sucks.

This is horrible, we are supposed to be playing like a team fighting for the play offs not like the ****ing Hawks.

Rick wont play David because he has made up his mind who will play WAY before the game started. Man I cant wait till Jamaal comes back, this isnt even funny how weak our team is with out him.

I can't help but feel like they are done! Does Sager know what he is talking about with Artest or is it just a report of old news? Did Stern say no to the letter we supposedly sent asking for reinstatement?

I am losing hope, which is a horrible feeling to have! There is always next year, but not for Reggie!

If he doesn't shoot the free throws - he's not allowed to return to the game.

03-03-2005, 09:21 PM
Well, if JO's done, so is this season. Doesn't matter if we get Ronnie back or not if JO and Tins are gone.

Looks like DD may get a lot more PT than he expected.

I can already see the final insult to injury of this season:

I was starting to think "well maybe this will land us a high draft pick". But no, that's too good for us. What will happen, is we'll play just well enough to make the 7th seed, just so we can get our asses kicked by the Pistons to end the year in a sweep.
