    I'd hate to see my twin get assassinated, but I'm not sold on Jamaal Crawford, so I wouldn't do this deal. Jerome Williams does make it a little more interesting, but I'm not sure where he'd get many minutes, even with Al gone?

    Also, if Tinsley isn't part of this trade then I think the rotations would be:

    PG Tinsley / (Pick one) / (Pick another one)
    SG Crawford/ Uncle Reg
    SF Artest/ Bender
    PF Foster/ Williams/ Croshere
    C O'Neal/ Foster/ Pollard

    I don't think this makes us any better than we are now.
    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

    NO. Al is better than Crawford. No NO NOO.
    Don't ask Marvin Harrison what he did during the bye week. "Batman never told where the Bat Cave is," he explained.

    Funny what a difference a few months can make. I probably would have jumped all over this deal before the season started. Crawford now seems a little too streaky for my taste, and Al has really stepped up this year.

    Pass.

    I'm with you guys. Crawford's great for a young team making its way up, or even for a "pretty good" team. The Pacers are title hunting. No reason - though long-term it would give you a potential replacement for Reggie.

    Isn't Crawford a bit of a knuckle head, meaning malcontent? I just really don't like his game...he seems very wild, almost like a Jason Williams pull up shooter. How is the kids D? As for J-Y-D? Heck No!

    I'll have to say No on this one!

    That would be a tempting trade, if Al were asking for a ticket out. Which I do not believe he is right now.

    I like JYD and think he is a great role player off the bench with energy.

    Crawford will grow up. Reggie did. But right now, if he came here, I'd believe Reggie would still start.

    What works against this trade idea the most, besides a reluctance to trade Al, is Crawford's contract. He's going to need a new one and someone might shoot him a crazy offer that we would be reluctant to match.

    Hey Buck,

    Did you notice where Chad Ford mentioned that he heard the rumor from David Whitley?



    (my first-and most likely last-dancing banana\not that I have things against dancing bananas)
    Two=the number 2
    Too=means "also"
    To=many definitions-also known as the one to use when the other 2 (two, too) do not apply.

    Their=shows ownership-'it is their house'
    They're=they are
    There=many definitions-also known as the one to use when the other 2 (their, they're) do not apply

    Sorry but it bugs me when these are used incorrectly when I read posts on PacersDigest.com.

    Puff...puff...pass.

    Crawford is a nice player...

    don't need poor shot selection and decision making right now... I'm hoping Reg and JB getting their legs back and Tinsley improving his shot will be enough for us on the perimeter...for now.

    Resigning Crawford along with swallowing JYD's 4 remaining years AFTER this one at 7 million per year make this trade impossible. We can't have Croshere, JYD, and Pollard all on the same salary cap, especially considering the Pacers high pay roll next year with the current roster.
    That's a great point. I didn't realize that JYD has four years left after this. Two more than Pollard. That's just too much of a contract to take on under the circumstances for a bench player.

    BOOOO! bad trade idea.

    Jamaal is doing fine Artest will be our 2 guard someday. We need AL for the 3 when reggie retires.

    if it aint broken dont fix it

    I wouldn't do that trade, but if they made it Harrington for Crawford and Curry, I would have to do it.

    It's a trade that works on RealGM too.

    That's my thought, however I keep hearing that Paxton, their GM is fed up with the two of them. He even went in the locker room once and chewed the two of them out. He apologized later, but he's not happy with them and Al is a budding star.

    I like AL and I would do it. I think bird would do it too, that's too much to pass up.

    In a few years we would have a stud lineup

    Tinsley
    Crawdad
    Artest
    O'neal
    Curry

    But we will be set back right now

    I don't think it is worth it...I mean...We have title hopes this year

    Eddy Curry - C - Chicago Bulls Jan 20

    The 31 year-old man who dresses as 'DA Bull', the Chicago Bulls mascot, was arrested today for selling marijuana out of his car.

    This trade would probably still be available this summer if you really wanted to do it. Paxson may be down on those two, but he's still over-valuing them.

    Wow, I didn't think so many people would consider this trade.

    If some people think Al is a whiner why even consider Crawford?
    Crawford is more vocal than Al has ever been.

    If we don't get to the Finals (or atleast game 7 of the ECF) OR harry wants a trade...then I would do this in a heart beat
