    To top it off, we were so bad that David played some and I couldn't watch.

    Could the season from hell be crossing over into this season also? It's playing out similarly with all the Artest drama.

    It's a little early to say this, but one way or another it's going to be an interesting offseason.

    I've come up with a slogan: "Pacers 03-04: Ignorance is Bliss."

    That was just a great year overall, the Colts broke out and started to play really good and went to the AFC Championship game.

    The Pacers went all the way to the Eastern Conference Finals, too. How I remember that nice playoff run, I can almost still hear the cars honking their horns in the parking lots after the home playoff games.....

    Everyone's talking about 03-04, what about 99-00? Or even better, 97-98, when we came so close to beating the Bulls.

    But seriously... let's wait to see who we get in a trade before we write this team off. There's a lot of season left.

    Whooping azz on boston..... fighting of the Miami Wades.... and then playing that exciting ECF against Detroit. Man, I was just really into that year, it was so fun.

    I know it hurts to lose one, but Dallas is one of the better teams right now, and it was on the road. It would even be o.k. if we lost one on the road to the Spurs. I just haven't given up on this year. There are too many things that could go right for us. Foster will get back into game shape, and I'm still hoping for a player that will make a difference in the trade.

    I remember when we were championship contenders as well.

    It was the 99-00 season & then for reasons that I will never understand it was all taken away.

    We were so used to becoming a 2nd round playoff team....that I think it will be hard to adjust.

    I think we have to get used to becoming a perennial "1st round playoff exit" team that we were when we were coached by Zeke for this and the upcoming season 2006-2007 season.

    If we retool properly....we can probably make it back to the "2nd round or better" type of team we were prior to the brawl by the 2007 season.

    In my opinion
    we are stil championship contenders.

    This team just need some patience. At least wait until Artest trade.

    I am not trying to say we would be title contenders but if Rick can get his head out of his *** and put his best 5 man lineup in at the start of the game. Actually play his 2nd best pg AT PG we would not be in the shape we are in.
