    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

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

    I'm shocked... I thought more people wouldn't want Artest on the team...

    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

    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...

    I was just about to ask - how do you vote twice (or every option for that matter)?

    Ron's become a "martyr".



    And this board has always been quite supportive of Ron, anyway. Last summer, the only people that wanted Ron traded were probably me and Peck, although I might be forgetting one or two others.

    I didn't post as much last year as I do now.

    I didn't desperately want to get rid of Ron, but I wanted him gone for Peja when those rumors arose.

    And I definitely wanted him out in a deal for Tmac.
