    Default Bender?

    Anyone heard anything new on Bender?

    Has he been attending the games? Just curious....Not being there and not getting to watch as many of the games as I would like, I haven't seen if he's even going to games anymore.

    I have not seen him on the bench and have been wondering myself why they are still pretending he is part of the team.

    I heard he was abducted by aliens. DW is awaiting word on whether the alien technology might be able to fix his knee... or knees... or elbow... or shoulder... or wrist.... or whatever is broken.

    The aliens aren't certain tho because they can't examine him or his progress because Bender's playing some pickup games on Neptune.

    I have a feeling he's all but retired. I have a friend who saw him over at Tom Raper RV pricing Winnebagos.

    I know this is untrue. JB would only purchase an RV from PawPaw's Camper City in Picayune, where he once worked in the lot cleaning cars.......Maybe he can get his old job back......

    With his unique speed and jumping ability he used to wash AND dry the windshields of the RV's without a ladder.

    When told that he couldn't get his old job back because he could no longer perform the necessary duties he angrily replied "That never stopped the Pacers from bringing me back! You only give me one chance!!? I'm owed another chance! And another... And another...."

    They agreed...

    That's when he was then traded to Raper RV.

    I posted this a bunch in other threads, but we are being told he is deciding on his future and if he will retire.

    My opinion is that he is being offered as part of a trade package, and if he isnt included then he will just retire.

    No, he does not attend games.
    Yes I keep reading you posting this, however.........

    1: IF he is part of a trade, the team that receives JB can NOT claim the permanently injured excemption. Which means that he should either have to play again or they have to pay him for a year before they can write him off on perm inj.
    2: IF he retires, or better still, decides to give it up, the Pacers can claim perm injury status as of NOW, whiping his salary OFF the LT AND get an excemption of 50% of his salary to sign a replacement.


    Henceforth the only logical conclusion to this all is that the "Bender" decision is on a backburner, one or two months not making a difference anymore. (though the timing could also be so that there is a year with max 7 games in gone past, that may be this or next month and that would be the time the excemption can be aquired.

    Considering his house is for sale we can almost assume he will be leaving Indy.
    And not in a trade.
    So Long And Thanks For All The Fish.

    He has become basketball's answer to boxing's sparring partner - the ultimate practice player.

    He came in to Circuit City on Christmas Eve to by all his Christmas presents. I can tell you he sure as hell wasn't worried about money. Some random person came up and asked him if he was going to retire and he said he was still talking to his doctors.
