    Default 9-14... This is a sub .500 team.

    Unfortuneately this is the record without the psycho and I feel there will be a lot more :dissapoin until this season is over.

    I heard Dionne Warwick's song "Deja Vu" last night and I immediately thought of this Ron Artest/doomed Pacers season this morning. With a slight change of lyrics... it's quite fitting.

    Deja vu -
    Could you be the season I once knew
    Is it you
    Deja vu -
    Could you be the nightmare comming true
    Shining through

    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.

    They are because the team has quit. The Ron saga has taken too long and is dragging the team down for a while now and this last week they just completely gave up.

    I think once a trade happens they may get some hope back but after last night I think they all have just completely lost faith that TPTB will get anything done.

    Its not because they miss Ron, its because they feel abandoned by management. They've been both with him (on the team) and without him (on the team, but no replacement) for too long.

    This isn't any proof of how much the team needs Ron or how valuable he was. Its just proof that management still does not have a decent "Plan B" for when Artest goes Artest.
    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

    Thus the eerie feeling of Deja Vu. At least last year we had Reggie and DD to reinvigorate us for the stretch run.

    Why did this have to happen in a year with a crappy draft? The Spurs had their bad year in Tim Duncan's year. We are going to get nobody, I repeat nobody out of this.

    BTW, I am already looking ahead to the draft. I vote for Rudy Fernandez, the SG/SF out of Spain. He can shoot the ball and is a playmaker. He is a bit of a project, but hey, we are going to be bad for a number of years so we have the time!

    This really has me thinking that Rick deserves a pass of judgement because non of this crap is his fault. If he's hung out to dry for Ron, DW, and Larry's misjudgments it would be a travesty beyond compare.

    I'm certainly not the biggest Rick Carlisle fan, but I do agree with this.

    I'm not sure he'll be the right coach for the "new" Pacers, but very little of what's going on is his fault - in fact, I'd probably run the same "ugly" offense if it were me because it does give us our best chance of success right now. And if I were in the hotseat, I probably wouldn't play the young guys as much as the critic up in Section 204 thinks he should.

    Either way we suck.
    Don't ask Marvin Harrison what he did during the bye week. "Batman never told where the Bat Cave is," he explained.
