    Default Jermaine Wants Eighth Seed

    Yes, you saw it correctly, Jermaine wants the eighth seed. He think the Pacers have a great chance against them now that they have their size back with Peja here. This is of course if they all stay healthy. Charles passed out after that statement (almost). Charles thinks Pacers can be second best team in East, but cannot beat Detroit. They also think this is a really good trade for Pacers, but Peja hurts them defensively. (TNT)

    I refuse to believe JO actually said he wanted to be the 8th seed....

    Did he hurt his head as well as his groin?

    Then again, am I wrong in remembering he said something similiar last year too about wanting to play Detroit?

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    What is he thinking, think they can beat Pistons in a best of 5, never this year.

    Hope for the 7th spot and get Miami! Miami is another team that don't know if it's on the right track!

    My guess is Jermaine said if the Pacers are healthy they can beat anyone- Aldridge said Pistons ? and JO said bring them on if we are healthy. I truely doubt he said we want them in the 1st round.

    I think J.O. wants to play the Pistons and I applaud him. I want to play the Pistons too because they are our rivals. But J.O., like me, is a sane person(this is why we kept him and traded the other one away, remember?) and I think what he meant was that he would be alright with the Pistons and he feels very confident in his team. Off the record I'm sure he'd prefer the 6 or 7 seed.

    I'd hope he wants to play them. I have no problem with that. Now, if he said he wants to beat them, then there could be trouble.
    Don't ask Marvin Harrison what he did during the bye week. "Batman never told where the Bat Cave is," he explained.

    So somebody please explain this: How does JO saying that he would like to meet the Pistons in the playoffs automatically mean in the first round?

    Anyone?

    Beuhler?

    Let's hope we can navigate our way there...we are only half a game back on 5th seed and the tough route. Yet you don't want lose games any more than necessary...

    If we are healthy I would rather meet the Pistons in the first round too. Being the 8th seed does that.

    Why? Because with JO and Tinsley if we meet the Pistons in the conference finals, history says they will really be banged up.

    Why? Because if we meet Detroit in the first round all the pressure is on them. Being an 8th seed everything from then on is gravy for us, while Detroit is already the uncrowned champion.

    Why? Detroit is going to go into the playoffs with a great record, if they are going to overlook a team it's in the first round.

    Why? Face it, this year barring injury the Eastern Conference championship goes though Detroit. If we would happen to get by Detroit our confidence would be Sky high.

    Why? Why not? We would have to meet them sometime. Get it over with.

    Yup I would love the Pistons or Heat in the 1st round

    Problem is, even if the Pistons were going to overlook the Pacers before, JO has successfully painted a big bulls-eye on himself and his team, thus ensureing there will be not let-down in a possible playoff series....

    I seriously doubt the Pistons will even remember or care about comments like the one JO "supposedly" made.

    Can anyone paraphrase what JO said better?

    I think it's a good idea to play the Pistons the first round. We get to play the best team before injuries come. Tins and JO will be injured by the second round or so.

    1. When have the Pistons ever overlooked a playoff oponent? They have been known to overlook regular season opponents in the past, but are all business in the playoffs.

    2. This is not the first (and probably not the last) statement oozing with false bravado that I've heard from Jermaine, Artest, Jackson, etc. I don't think a season would be complete without the declaration of superiority from one of those 3.

    To be fair, the Pistons (well, Rasheed) have done their share of talking as well.

    The difference is, they typically back it up.....

    It's always nice to know that our best player still feels we can compete for the championship. I don't really care if they can or cannot best the Pistons, but if they feel they can then they will play a lot better the rest of the season. It's better than them just giving up.
