sorry, my mind takes shortcuts sometimes expecting the world to know what i mean
So Long And Thanks For All The Fish.
If you've done 6 impossible things today?
Then why not have Breakfast at Milliways!
Maybe I'm missing something, but if he's all that why wasn't he drafted?

People need to do quote's so reader's can understand what they are talking about.
I assume you are talking about Sarunus. He wasn't good enough to draft with his class. He made himself better in Europe and now he's a free agent that can play.
is he as good as michael??? of course not. i'm implying that he's treated the same way over there as michael was here. he's the best player in europe and people treat him like it over there.
I've seen Sarunas play. He has NBA talent, and will be a star here, mark my words. I absolutly think he is better then Tony Parker.
You can't tell if someone has NBA talent until they play against NBA talent.
The interesting comment that Bird made was that some players didn't work on their game during the summer and wouldn't be here next year. I'm trying to figure out who he is talking about. Tins, went to Florida and worked hard all last summer. So not him. Saurons is obviously a step in right now player, and while it takes some time to get to know the guys your passing too, he sounds like a possible answer.
The only player you don't hear about during the past few summers is Croshere, he shot 25% from the arc. Is he the one, but he's untradable? I can't think of anyone that doesn't work during the summer, Artest plays 24/7 and in the middle of snowstorms when he gets bored. JO is rehabing a little and is coming off a great season minus the injuries that slowed him and is arguably one of the best in the game right now. This is Harrisons first summer, who could he be talking about? He said "they know who they are".

I think I read recently that Ron showed up out of shape last fall.
Probably Pollard; plus I think he doubt's Bender's dedication, since he often opts out of playing in the summer league. He may question Tinsley's focus and dedication, too.

Thanks for explaining the reason he (Sarunas) wasn't drafted--under contract until this year. Makes sense.
I've heard a couple people say Bird has the inside track on the guy. Does anybody know why there is reason to think this?
One other question: Why wouldn't a free agent from Europe be part of this year's draft?
Another reason why Sarunas Jasekevicius wasn't in this draft is quite simple , he played 4 years at Maryland , thus he was eligable for the 1995 or 96 draft and went undrafted.
Saras, was a shooting guard at Maryland, in the years since he has developed as a point guard. So the 6'4 Saras can play both guard spots.
His leadership, passing and outside shooting would all fit very well with the Pacers. Larry Bird , has spent a lot of time talking to his reps hopefully , he will sign here.
We can't "talk" with FA until July 1 and they can't sign until the 21st. IS that correct?
If you get to thinkin’ you’re a person of some influence, try orderin’ somebody else’s dog around..
The two names I keep coming back to are. Antonio Daniels and Earl Watson. I would rather have AD, in fact I'll say it, I'd rather have Daniels than Tinsley. He's is my type of point guard.
Interesting website about Saranus. Jasikevicius...
