    Default Artest, Yea or Nay...Trade for Peja, Yea or Nay...VOTE TWICE

    alright....since this issue seems to rear its ugly head over and over in far too many threads...two part poll...

    first part....do u want artest on the 2005-06 pacers squad....very simple...yea or nay

    second part...if u had the opportunity to trade artest straight up to the kings for peja....would u do it?....yea or nay?

    maybe we could use this thread for those times we would like to say something on this highly volatile subject instead of hijacking a thread that has very little, if any, to do with it....

    comments are welcome with regards to the polls....but not required....

    you have the opportunity to vote twice...please do so once for the upcoming team and once for the trade....they are separate issues...

    Too bad the Spurs would laugh and then hang up on the Pacers if they offered Ron Artest for Manu.

    The interesting thing is if this poll was done last year right now. The pro Peja vote would be much , much higher

    I wouldn't trade any rotation player on this team for Pookie.

    Well, maybe that is a bit extreme, I'm sure he would be a great bench player. If Peja EVER is a starter on this team, though, I'm going to have to go back to that plan of flicking Donnie in both ears.

    No i wouldnt trade ron for peja.. just because Ron fits in with Pacers style setup much better than Peja... and whats wrong with all this disrespect against Peja? He is an awesome player, but very unlucky to proove it when it counts sometimes...

    Yeah he is a awesome player when there is no pressure to make a big shot and when he has Vlade and Webb giving him all those open shots. As soon as Vlade and Webb left Peja's play started dropping. He isnt close to a player that Ron is. If his shot isnt falling he makes zero impact on a game.

    I think most of the Ron-for-Peja advocates a year ago WERE NOT in love with Peja's game, but just realized that Ron's market value was already that low and that was probably the best we could ever do in a straight-up deal.

    I still think Peja's game would mix nicely with the Pacers. We desparately need an outside threat and Peja's one drawback - can he shoot in the clutch? - really wouldn't be an issue as long as JO is still in the post.
    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

    My vote is the same as it was last year. I didn't want Peja then and I don't want him now.

    I defentily do not want Ron on this team.

    - He can not be trusted.
    - Who knows when he will want to retire or atleast take a 2 week vacation just a few games into the season? Or do something really stupid again. Do I think he will go into the stands again? No. Do I think he will do something equaly as stupid? Yes, he just needs some time to screw up again.
    - I simply am tired of disucssing this guy some of the times and hearing his name being discussed some of the times, he is such a conterversy [sp] act and has defentily given the Pacers a bad reputation in SOME peoples minds. Also he just always seems to say some really werid things, sometimes stupid. For example, just recently he said "I'm not trying to get into any cheerio commericals or Coca-Cola commericals. I want to do a commerical in the 'hood".

    People say "Ron is so great and we will not get equal value." Bullcrap. He is unreplaceable for what he does on the court and I give him that, but I find it very hard to find a longterm place for this walking circus act on a championship caliber team and a class act organization. Ron may not be replaced skill wise but if we get someone with good head on there shoulders who is a pretty decent player that will make me happy. I am almost to the point where I just want to say "Re-sign James Jones and make him the starting SF with Granger his backup until Granger is ready to be a starter. Then buyout Ron and tell him to go promote his fliping album or sign with a team who can deal with clowns."

    I'm telling you, no matter how good Ron is, the Pacers will not win a championship with Ron Artest. Say they won't win one without Peja, go ahead, but I sure have more confidence in Peja to atleast suit up for the games in the playoffs and not be watching the game from his big screen t.v. because he is suspended.

    If injuries were a concern....then I would not want Peja on the team. Also...we would have 3 players that would need to dominate the ball in order to be effective. With Artest, at least we have a player that can be on the floor but contribute if he is not touching the ball.

    Ron's trade value is just as low, if not lower, then it was last summer. That doesn't explain the (assumed) increase in votes for him in our poll...

    two possible explanations....people have grown to love him ....or with what happened in nov. they now feel its highly unlikely things of that nature will happen again....in other words he hit rock bottom and now is on the road to recovery....and things should be mostly positive from here on out...
