    1. O'Neal, Artest, and Jackson will all 3 be Pacers next season

    True. This core needs a chance to be together. Could be our key to a championship. Jacks positive attitude+JO being a leader and ron keeping it together on the floor could be our shot at a title.

    2. Artest will go the entire season next year without causing a disruption, and will proved that he is a changed person

    True...to an extent he'll have his usual weird incidents and people will have him under the microscope. And things will come up that really are no big deal but due to the past it's made into one.

    3. The Pacers will make a significant trade before the season

    False...
    Don't think any major trades will happen sadly. Unless you count losing a draft pick or gaining a few scrubs?

    4. This team will miss Reggie maybe more than we all thought
    True. The team will miss his leadership. And it will hit them sometime next season when he's not in the lockerroom to keep us up.
    5. Tinsley is the long term answer at PG, the Pacers should stand pat with him.
    True And False...
    Undecided on this one. If he can stay healthy he's lethal. But his shot selection is so poor at times. And he gets way too cute with the ball. Learn from his mistakes...keep the TO's down and get everyone involved then yes. If he can not. He needs to be moved.

    6. Jermaine will evolve into a true leader.

    True. Next season ? maybe not. I think ron will actually be this teams leader as crazy as that sounds. But JO will step up I believe. He can only get better.

    7. This team is built for the regular season

    False. We lost to the defending champs in six games fellas. 2 years ago we had them. Rip makes a stupid flop and ron gets a flagrant. We should have won that game. And we were injured. Being healthy is the damn key here. If we have seeds locked up. We need to rest.

    8. A healthy Pacers team will finally move past Detroit
    True...see above

    9. The Pacers will win the championship
    TRUE. This will be our year. It should have been this year. But a fan threw a beer and it didn't happen.

    10. This one is a joke by now: We will finally "see it all" from Bender.
    TRUE! Here he comes baby! 20 and 10...you heard it here first suckaz....

    Good post - should generate some discussion. And it's been slow.

    1. O'Neal, Artest, and Jackson will all 3 be Pacers next season

    True - for part of it. I look for a big attempt to move Artest before the trade deadline after he's "proved" his sanity.

    2. Artest will go the entire season next year without causing a disruption, and will proved that he is a changed person

    This is funny - you mean for the first time in his career? False.

    3. The Pacers will make a significant trade before the season

    False

    4. This team will miss Reggie maybe more than we all thought

    False

    5. Tinsley is the long term answer at PG, the Pacers should stand pat with him.

    True - sort of. He has to prove he can stay healthy

    6. Jermaine will evolve into a true leader.

    False. If you mean by being the locker room leader. I don't see it. I think he'll continue to mature and will be able to be an example on the court.

    7. This team is built for the regular season

    False

    8. A healthy Pacers team will finally move past Detroit

    True - because Larry Brown won't be coaching. The problem is that Miami's already ahead of you and you'll have trouble catching them and others may pass you. Particularly Chicago but Washington & Boston are also candidates.

    9. The Pacers will win the championship

    False

    10. This one is a joke by now: We will finally "see it all" from Bender.

    If Bender decides to flash the crowd at some point I may never watch NBA basketball again.

    I figured as much. Maybe I really should've called it "this team is built to lose in the ECFs" or "This team peaks in November every season" for those of you unsure what I mean.

    As for the trade, I've got a hunch it'll be Jackson... he's got value, a reasonable contract. But he's not a good fit on this team because our other top-four players are also generally volatile (FG%, PPG, temper, Steve is volatile no matter what criteria you use) and each of the others (JO, max contract; Tinsley, BYC; and Ron, just plain crazy) are difficult to move. That, and my gut feeling is that DW and Bird want Ron to showcase his talents and -if it really exists- newfound maturity and composure both to the Pacers and the entire league before they decide what to do with him.

    But if he comes back playing well and with some semblance of responsibility, and that results in a 'sweeter' offer, I think they'll jump on it.

    I'd personally prefer they move him sooner (no surprise there) but I think its a perfectly rational decision if they put him and (most of) the rest of the team through an audition next fall. I still think they'll decide they ultimately want to move him as soon as they get any respectable offer, and that's the thing, they may not get a respectable offer until the audition is underway.

    I goota say say, I'm continually amazed at how much we think alike.


    1. O'Neal, Artest, and Jackson will all 3 be Pacers next season (Nope...maybe at start but not throughout)

    2. Artest will go the entire season next year without causing a disruption, and will proved that he is a changed person ( I really worry about what he's going to have to face in EVERY arena next year. The Harassment will be brutal...can he handle that??? Did I mention that I think he should be brought in off the bench next year? Give him time to adjust w/o the pressure of it all and let the league see him and get over it. It also lets his teammates know that he has to re-earn his spot.)

    3. The Pacers will make a significant trade before the season (Yes)

    4. This team will miss Reggie maybe more than we all thought (I fear they will and hope they won't...he wsa a focal point this year. WHat/who will be their rudder next year?)

    5. Tinsley is the long term answer at PG, the Pacers should stand pat with him. (Can the kncuklehead outgrow his own behavior???)

    6. Jermaine will evolve into a true leader. (YEs, I think he can)

    7. This team is built for the regular season (Uh...no...they burn out from mental fatigue and stress, if they could overcome that...but those words apply to alot of teams)

    8. A healthy Pacers team will finally move past Detroit (With no changes, this is no better than a 4th seed)

    9. The Pacers will win the championship (No)

    10. This one is a joke by now: We will finally "see it all" from Bender. (I would honestly like to think so...but I'm shutting up on this one)
    If you get to thinkiní youíre a person of some influence, try orderiní somebody elseís dog around..
