    Default Antoine Walker and Pacers???

    Found this blurp today.

    Ainge traded Walker to Dallas two years ago but reacquired him from Atlanta last season, and he led the Celtics to the Atlantic Division title.

    "We've got to see what happens with Danny," Bartelstein said. "He wants to play the young guys, and they're not going to play if he signs Antoine ... Danny has a decision to make. A number of teams are interested in Antoine - the Knicks, Houston, Seattle, Sacramento, Indiana, the Clippers. He's the most talented free agent on the market.

    this is the link;;http://www.newsday.com/sports/printe...y-sports-print

    Not saying it will happen but we know Larry Bird and Donnie Walsh , are big supporters of Walker.

    At least it would make me feel better about the Pistons potentially signing Wells....

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    Intriguing. Would he play 3? 4? 1? Can he even play 5?

    I don't think we need any help at 3, but we could use a good backup 4 and we could also use a playmaker like Antoine out front.

    I can't imagine it happening, but it is intriguing. I've always liked Walker, even though he's goofy, inconsistent, and unpredicatable. He does know how to win, though. IMO.

    Traditionally I feel that Walker isn't a winner-he doesn't give a team the things it takes to win. But maybe as he is getting older he is ready to do that.

    Having said that I don't know where they would play him. We need a big man who can play center. Not another skill player.

    Dont bring this guy on our team please. Watching him in the playoffs makes me want no part of the guy, how someone can miss so many wide open layups is beyond me. He shoots too much and I dont want that.

    I don't want this guy on our team unless he is willing to play 10-14 min as our back-up PF and doesn't command a huge salary. Otherwise I don't want him, he is talented but wouldn't help our team.

    If I remember correctly, Walker was involved in a sign and trade with Subway. In return, the Celtics get Jared and a sandwich to be named later on.



    But seriously, I hope he never comes to the Pacers. I don't really like his style of play, and I don't see him meshing with our current roster.

    SHUT YOUR MOUTHS!

    SHUT UP!

    SHUT

    UP!

    SHUT YOUR POOP MOUTHS NOW!

    Walker would play 4, JO would play 5, and believe it or not, we'd have a really good team. Can't believe so many people would whine so much. He's a good player who has changed his style of play to escape the label casted upon him. He doesn't chuck 3's anymore, and when he's not the top offensive scorer, he could be a valueable asset. He can be a good scorer, decent rebounder, and can handle the ball.

    SHUT YOUR POOP MOUTHS!!!

    :P

    Walker has the girth for a 5 but thats it. I can't stand him.
    I don't want to see him, "back it up" every Pacer's game. Bad mental image
    man. I need a drink.

    Our inside defense would be terrible, up there with the Kings if we went to that lineup.

    Who would rebound? Certainly not JO or Walker. Artest would be the only guy in there attempting to rebound.
    Sorry, I didn't know advertising was illegal here. Someone call the cops!

    not think about.

    We all thought the same thing about Jermaine and Brad.

    That said, I sure as hell don't want him here.

    This happens a lot and never ceases to amaze me!

    What am I talking about?

    DD reports the experts (Bird and Walsh) like Walker, and it's true I've read or heard that several times myself, but does that dissuade people from weighing in with a dissenting opinion and really trashing Walker? Not at all.

    Must be an Internet thing because if I had a basketball opinion different from those guys I wouldn't be advertising it, I would look into why they have those opinions.

    Walker tried extremely hard to fit in when Boston picked him up, and he gets most of the accolades when reading why Boston made the playoffs.

    He would be an asset to the Pacers!

    Im with Soupisgood on this one.
    Sorry but i dont like his style or him.. but more importantly i dont think he can give anything to the pacers unless he is backup playing like max 14 mpg..(and i dont think he is willing to do that so we can forget about Fatwoine!)
