    Default Why all of the hate for SJAX?

    Now im not trying to start anything with anybody,this is just me speaking on SJAX and the hate people seem to have towards him.Now I do understand that Jax does have his problems and all of that.I also know that alot of people think he is not mentally strong enough to get his emotions under control to get us to that championship level.


    But he is the one guy that when I think of somebody who is loyal to the pacers and the state of Indiana.I seem to remember hearing JO back a few years ago talking about how he didnt really like Indiana.And JO basically wanting to leave Indiana.All I say is that there arent too many NBA players who want to leave in Indiana,and SJAX has had nothing but good things to say about the pacers/Indiana.So Jax will always have my respect for that.

    #1. Not Jax fault but he is taking the over the position of what many consider the greatest Pacer ever.

    #2. Since he is our shooting guard his streaky shooting concerns many.

    #3. Many consider Jax involvement in the brawl worse than Artest's.

    #4....I'm not aware anyone hates SJax?
    You know how hippos are made out to be sweet and silly, like big cows, but are actually extremely dangerous and can kill you with stunning brutality? The Pacers are the NBA's hippos....Matt Moore CBS Sports....

    I don't hate him, I think that for some reason he has been deemed a thug and a headcase even before the brawl and after that a lot of people made up their minds that was the case.

    Myself, I don't care for him. Never have, probably never will.

    He is very streaky.

    When he is off, he whines and moans about everything, to the refs and to his teammates.

    When he is on he seems to thump his chest and glare down the opposition. Granted Reggie also did this his whole career, but he had enough clutch deliveries to earn a free pass to act like that, at least from Indiana fans.

    He seriously never looks like he is having any fun out there.

    His solo support of Ron seems to suggest that he isn't on the same page as his teammates.
    The poster "pacertom" since this forum began (and before!). I changed my name here to "Slick Pinkham" in honor of the imaginary player That Bobby "Slick" Leonard picked late in the 1971 ABA draft (true story!)

    I dislike his game more than I dislike his seemingly very short fuse.

    He's streaky, with poor shot selection, and he's turnover prone. I don't like those skills in my SG.

    That's enough for me, let alone the fact that he's a hothead.
    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

    I like Jack and although he does whine a bit when he's having an off game, I enjoy the positives that he brings to the team. It seems that the people that jump on him after a bad game are the same ones to totally ignore the games he has nearly single-handedly won for the Pacers.

    He has the ability to get to the hole, can create his own shot, is a hard worker, and a good defender. I've also noticed that recently he's backed off the refs a bit.

    People really need to cut him some slack.

    Larry is not coming back, he didn't have a meeting with Orlando for not reason, yeah he is coming back to the NBA but not to the Pacers, the notion that he is a taking a year off and then come back is absurd.

    Hes been playing good the last couple of games, but that wont last when JO is back in the line-up and Jamal comes back. Besides, he had good games against Mike D jr and Peja. Those guys are worser defenders than Sarunas.

    Well.......maybe not worser, but there still pretty bad.

    He is nowhere near good enough to be hte #1 option, as #2 or #3 he has an attitude problem that is huge, his T's are as frequent as his good games, though at this moment in time the T's are ahead and he is on his way to suspensions.

    I agree with Jay on him and as far as his "taking it to the hoop" capability; that's a turnover waiting to happen, he carries the ball on his hip and get's stripped more often then a professional stripper in a night.

    He does not or hardly move without the ball, needs his feet firmly planted and his release takes longer then building the Eifel Tower.

    I like a SG with a snappy release and catch and shoot possibilties, Jax does not have those.

    I'm confused on Jax right now. I just can't make up my mind about him. I'm going to trust Donnie and what he decides about Jax at this point.

    If this post-Ron team can build great chemistry with Jax playing big mintes then I am all for keeping him. I just don't know if I think they can or not.

    Why the hate. Second quarter against the Lakers. Jax takes a couple of bad shots and was very lucky he was not thrown out on a night they need him.

    One night he makes you want to say NO WAY do I want Jack traded. He needs to be on this team.

    Next night you cant stand the man. I dont even care about the bad shots just keep your mouth shut and play defense after you miss.

    Holy smokes. The last two games are all you need to know about Jax.

    Heh, I was just looking for this thread to post the exact same thing.

    Inconsistent and a hothead. BAD combination.

    This is the Jax I want to see traded. Yesterdays Jax is the one I like. It all hinges on whether his shot is falling or not.

    I don't hate him but there are better players for this team somewhere out there.
    But an hour or so later, Hibbert wrote on his Twitter account: "Love this coach [and] I love this team. We can go far this year if we play like that. 2night we played our hearts out. Just didn't get the win."

    As usual the T's got further ahead of the good game number

    It started earlier, in transition 4 v 3 and he takes a 3 as soon as he crosses the timeline.

    And WHY on earth was he *****ing at the refs when he lost the ball without any contact?

    Not to mention he got stripped again with the ball on his hip.

    Stephen Jackson thy name is inconsistency.

    Needs more shots than a 3rd option will usually get.
    Not consistent enough to be a 2nd option.

    You know what I think that tells me?


    Ideal bench player. Streakiness isn't near as bad if it comes off the bench, and you don't count on it as a key part of your starting lineup.

    However, we've already got a sparkplug scorer in Fred Jones....
