    Default If Ron were inevitably going to be traded...

    Who would you want in return for him?

    Please make all trade scenarios legal and plausible.

    Uh......Paul Pierce or Peja, can't think of anyone else at this time. But, really, I don't want to trade him.

    sorry, but this is self contradictory....

    anyone we would want for him...we wouldnt get....there is no plausible trade for him that anyone would want


    i went over a few plausible trades the other day....they went over like a lead balloon for the most part....

    Two names that come to mind are: Prince, Andre Iguodala

    That is not equal value, but I want a unique player

    Really, draft pick? Wow it is worse than I thought

    If Bird really wants to play a faster pace than Shawn Marion would be perfect. I also would love to have Peja, get a world class shooter is fitting in Indiana.

    I like it just send our team another step back and wait for some player to develop for 3 years.

    I would like Shawn Marion, but our defense would suffer so much... I don't think we would be any better.

    If only we had just picked The Matrix instead of Bender from the start

    I just had a vision. Filled with what-ifs and who does its.

    It involved moving Johnson in said trade as well. And then doing the Bender deal. And then moving all those expiring deals (+ Pollard) and the pick to Seattle for Ray Allen. And signing some European point guard. And re-signing James Jones. And extending Fred Jones. And just for the helluva it, giving Dale Davis a new deal.

    And then I woke up. And realized that I do kinda like Ron Artest.

    with all due respect....i dont want paul pierce near this team....i dont like his attitude..at all....and i know theres a trust issue with ron....but i would much prefer to deal with the issues regarding ron and why he does what he does....

    paul pierce is nothing but a selfish,spoiled rotten whiny little brat as far as im concerned...and no...i dont think ron is remotely the same....more importantly his issues arent the same....i dont want a player that just kinda quits or seems not to care openly when hes not happy.....

    i know ron will bust his *** no matter what the situation is.....i have zero reason to believe paul pierce would....

    though i realize some dont like him, ive thought for some time that kurt would be a great addition to this team.....

    isiah would make this trade in a second i have a feeling....he might squawk about the pick....might want it to be next years or something.....

    however....this is a trade u simply cant make if ur the pacers....

    Last year, the story was that Ron was more interested in busting his *** to promote that album than bust his *** to help the Pacers.

    First, he promised the album would be done by the time the season started. It was reported that he came into camp out of shape and the album wasn't done. Alledgedly, he wanted time off to finish that, or at least that was the "public story" but many of us also know that he just plain volunteered to quit on the team.

    Perhaps he will bust his *** no matter what the situation is. Maybe he won't. That's anything but a certainty, however. The more important question is, will Ron be busting his *** while he looks out for #1, as he's known to do? Or will he ever learn to channel his efforts toward the team (and willingly submit his individual talents for the good of the team)?

    I've always said, if we were picking players for the NBA 1-on-1 tourney that Ron would be my guy. But in a team setting, he's not very useful and he's borderline expendable.

    If he were to be traded, I'd be happy with a box of warm Krispy Kreme's. I'd like the Pacers to come up with *any* other legit starting SF, because the lack of a contingency plan last season cost Reggie and the rest of the team a shot at a title. They could do that via the draft, free agency, or trade. Its not like these guys totally sucked without him, his presence is significantly overstated.
    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

    I just got a box of Krispy Kreme's. They're way overrated.

    I'm gonna go ponder what NBA players I could get with them.

    Its from Chad Ford...

    http://www.pacersdigest.com/forums/s...ead.php?t=6945

    Remember, quite a few of Ron's early-season "sins" all got swept aside the the brawl aftermath. But those things bother me much more than the brawl.

    The twist, which came out Wednesday night, is that Artest attributed some of that fatigue to work he was doing promoting his rap album due out Nov. 23. When reporters asked Artest whether his work on the album contributed to his fatigue, he responded. "I've been doing a little bit too much music, just needed the rest," Artest said. "I've still got my album coming out Nov. 23. After the album comes out I'm going to make sure all of my time is focused on winning a championship."

    Artest's explanation surprised the Pacers and caused a firestorm nationally. Pacers president Donnie Walsh told Insider on Thursday morning that Artest did not ask for time off because of his work on the rap album.

    "He had a number of things going on his life," Walsh said. "He came into camp weighing 260 pounds. It was the first time in his career he hasn't really been in shape. The heavy minutes he's been playing were taking their toll physically. And he had other personal issues that were troubling him. The rap stuff never came up."

    While Walsh doesn't discount the fact Artest's schedule promoting the album may have contributed to his conditioning and lack of focus, he had nothing but praise for Artest. "He's the one guy that gives maximum effort on our team every day, whether that be in the practice or the games," Walsh said. "That's been true this year as well. No one here is questioning his effort or his intensity. He just had some things that had to be worked out and Rick and Ron agreed on a course of action that led to him sitting out the last two games. He wasn't suspended or fined. It wasn't about that."

    I'd trade last year's Ron for this coming season Ron. And yes I do believe he is a changed person.
