It sounds like a good idea to me except if you're expecting the whole team to do it Austin has already said he won't shave his head again. Why? He's still waiting for it to grow back after the last time he did it.
In fact the more I think about it the more I think not many of the guys would agree to do it.
No one seemed to complain about JONeal prior to our current streak of suckage. Why complain about him now?
Just because we are losing now?
He maybe a small part of the problem....but I think that jettisoning the players that most of us wouldn't mind seeing gone ( SJax and Tinsley ) would be a good start.
Trading JONeal should only happen IF a reasonable deal can be had ( where we don't have to give up Granger and/or Harrison ) for a player of equal or greater value ( as in KG ) or if Bird/Walsh want to essentially rip out the foundation of the Pacers....meaning we are headed back to lottery land.
Trading JONeal is the "nuclear" option....which I don't think we need to do.

The question has always been why that was and whether it was the player or the system.
JO without Artest has left JO exposed as a paper tiger in the system the Pacers keep running or are forced to run. Artest wasn't the complimentary player to JO, JO was the complimentary player to Artest.
That doesn't mean Artest didn't have issues.
Nuntius was right. I was wrong. Frank Vogel has retained his job.
"A player who makes a team great is more valuable than a great player. Losing yourself in the group, for the good of the group, thatís teamwork."
Don't thank me, I'll kill ya.
J.os a beast we play better with him.
Here's a question for you guys.
Jermaine for Odom, Bynum, and Mihm. Yes or no?
Welcome to Pacers Digest! New around here? Here are three tips for making the forum a great place to talk about Pacers basketball.
- Log in. Even if you want to read instead of post, it's helpful because it lets you:
- Change your signature options. You can hide all signatures by choosing "Settings" (top right) then "General Settings" (middle left) and unchecking the box "Show Signatures" (in the "Thread Display Options" area).
- Create an ignore list. I know it may seem unneighborly. But you're here to talk about the Pacers, not argue with someone who's just looking for an argument. Most of the regular users on here make use (at least occasionally) of the "Ignore" feature. Just go to "Settings" -> "Edit Ignore List" and add the names.
Enjoy your time at PD!
I chose No
Actually, JO is the only one who needs to do it. Just walk into the locker room one day bald and ready to do battle.
If they then decide to do a team-wide thing, Austin is fully exempt. He needs the extra cushioning........
