After four games of coaching the "New Pacers", I wonder how Rick feels.
He doesn't have the weight of any Ron Artest issues hovering over him. He doesn't have to consider how Ron will feel or react whenever he says something. He's watching his team move and share the ball, and most importantly, they are winning.
Peja seems like an easy player to coach. It would seem to me that Rick's job has become more fun since the trade. The team seems relaxed and happy. I expect that this trade will be looked on as a great move.
Too bad it didn't happen sooner.
