    I was actually surprised by the "oversight" of this year's team and coaches. One would think Reggie would have particular appreciation for guys who gave it all they had - just like he did.
    The best exercise of the human heart is reaching down and picking someone else up.

    The answer from MM about how former coaches might have handled this season was very interesting

    But he mentioned "The Season we do NOT Discuss"


    "Things unravelled a bit that season"


    Really Mark, you think so??

    Why do the things that we treasure most, slip away in time
    Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
    Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?
    Till we fall away in our own darkness, a stranger to our own hearts
    And life itself, rushing over me
    Life itself, the wind in black elms,
    Life itself in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you

    Question:[/b] Isn't it unusual for a player who's been suspended by the NBA to be allowed to sit in street clothes on his team's bench, like Ron Artest did at the Pacers' final home game? Did the Pacers get special permission for that?

    Will Artest be at all of the Pacers' playoff games? If so, what if the Pacers advance and play Detroit? Would Artest sit on the Pacers' bench in Detroit? (Ed from Fort Wayne, Ind.)

    Answer: It would make for a good story to say Artest just showed up for the game and sat on the bench in defiance of the league's rule. It wouldn't be true, however. I wrote about this in my article on Reggie Miller's retirement celebration. An NBA employee who has worked with Artest, Yolanda Brooks, asked for permission and received it for that game only. He will not attend any of the playoff games -- especially any games the Pacers might play in Detroit.
    I wonder if that's why the Ps thought he might be re-instated. Kinda sounds like to me that he's going through a league program as well, and not just one he picked out.
