    I think the "young prospects" line is a smokescreen. It's not like we have a bunch of old guys on our team and we're looking to rebuild in the next 2-3 years. All it really does is make our apparent interest in guys like Lewis, Odom, and Peja appear to be less so that the respective teams don't try to take us to the cleaners. You can bet that we'll end up with a good, fairly young player, but it will probably take a few days, with Donnie turning down several lowball deals, meanwhile turning up the pressure on other teams to make a good offer NOW to get their hands on Artest.

    So is that all he said?
    Don't ask Marvin Harrison what he did during the bye week. "Batman never told where the Bat Cave is," he explained.

    I haven't read this whole thread, but allow me to paraphrase what Donnie said.

    Walsh is upbeat, and enthusiastic about the offers coming in. His phone has been ringing incessantly. He wanted to ensure that those who don't know alot about trades and how they are brought about, that it would not be an overnight deal. He emphasized that fans patrons, et al, be patient, because it might take time to get what they feel he is worth.

    He reiterated that Ron Ron had plenty of opportunities to speak with either himself or Larry Bird.

    He said he hadn't tried to contact Ronnie since speaking with him on Monday, and that he hadn't tried to change his mind, and that Ron hadn't contacted him to tell him of a change of heart.

    Overall Donnie sounded upbeat, and really just ready to move on and see what the team could put together in a trade. Not dwelling on what could have beens. He's gettin on with the business of basketball, and that was comforting to know he was over it.

    Stephen A. Smith said that the Pacers have gotten calls from 17 teams. Not just one or two.

    Yeah, this guy also said earlier when he had Artest on his little show that the Pacers had zero chance of a title without Artest ... ZERO.

    These ESPN guys are funny, one day Artest is a top 15 player, next he is a top ten, now I think they have him up to top 5 ... LOL. You watch, if Ron ends up in a Lakers uniform he'll suddenly be a media darling and the next MJ!
