    After last night's game, I'm ready to move Tinsley to the 2 spot.

    The guy is a pretty good slasher. Much better then Stephen Jacksons mid range fade away post up game that we went to a few times in the first.

    We've got one in Jax. And a good one in waiting with Granger. I strongly believe, though, that if Granger got the starting spot tomorrow, he'd be ready for the offseason by the time we got there.

    We need a shooting guard and a center.
    I still hold to this.

    I don't understand what Peja does for us in the long term.
    Welcome to Pacers Digest! New around here? Here are three tips for making the forum a great place to talk about Pacers basketball.

    • Log in. Even if you want to read instead of post, it's helpful because it lets you:
    • Change your signature options. You can hide all signatures by choosing "Settings" (top right) then "General Settings" (middle left) and unchecking the box "Show Signatures" (in the "Thread Display Options" area).
    • Create an ignore list. I know it may seem unneighborly. But you're here to talk about the Pacers, not argue with someone who's just looking for an argument. Most of the regular users on here make use (at least occasionally) of the "Ignore" feature. Just go to "Settings" -> "Edit Ignore List" and add the names.

    Enjoy your time at PD!

    I have to agree, but I would include JO in trade talks and I would try to keep Peja..
    I would also like to explore what JO could bring in a trade.

    Last December UB listed JO among the "keepers" on the team, players "who are completely committed to the team". I don't think JO is ever going to take the Pacers to the top. He just doesn't make his teammates better, and it's going to take a team full of guys who make their teammates better. Guys who disregard individual glory and instead seek team success first and foremost. JO is NOT that guy.

    He's too concerned about posing and screaming after he dunks the ball. He's not about busting his *** for a rebound or a defensive stop. If you could combine JO's physical talent with Foster's passion and energy you'd have an ideal player. For my money, I'd rather have Foster.

    After last night's game I'd try to move Tinsley to another city.

    The only reason that I would want to move Tinsley or AJ to the 2 spot is cuz they have a penchant for shooting rather then looking to pass the ball.

    This is David West, he is the Honey Badger, West just doesn't give a *****....he's pretty bad *ss cuz he has no regard for any other Player or Team whatsoever.

    I'm down from "15 new players" to "an entirely new backcourt (starters and subs)".

    I'm happy with a Granger - JO - Harrison front line. How 'bout Peja and Foster as sixth/seventh men?
    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

    Interesting look back. The teams status & effort are right back at this point. However, this time the villians have changed. I don't like Saranus crying to the media. He's already spewed more negative commentary than Reggie did in 19 years, including 1 as a commentator! He knows something about being the man & then having to set in the back. Harrison is a very pleasant development! I was w/ Buck on the day of this thread's birth. I thought The Hulk was lazy. I'm happy to take it back & eat cro. (Not Austin)
    1 - 2, Tinsley's coming for you.
    3 - 4, You're not a team no more.
    5 - 6, He's gonna plead the 5th.
    7 - 8, He's gonna stay out late.

    same here

    I like our frontcourt, we need to do something with our backcourt.

    I guess the question is.....are you willing to tolerate a rebuilding effort?

    More then likely...if we tear out the foundation.....SJax/Tinsley/JONeal.....we are gonna be back in lottery town.....unless its absolutely done 100% right.

    Are you prepared for the worst? Cuz we could likely be headed there next season.

    I think that a JONeal/Peja/Sarunas/Granger/Foster/Harrison is good enough to build a foundation upon.

    You mean it can get worse than this?

    Actually, losing in and of itself is not the problem... It's how this team plays the game. Play the right way and eventually the wins will come. Play the wrong way and eventually the losses will mount.

    Nuntius was right. I was wrong. Frank Vogel has retained his job.

    We are still working our way towards this. It has taken a little longer than I would have liked, but we'll get there.

    This thread was started soon after Artest demanded a trade. Which really was only about 15 months ago - it seems like about 3 years ago
