    It would be more interesting if you/someone started an "Official "Is this team better with changed JO or regular JO" thread" instead..
    I think Carlisle is better without JO.

    As crazy as that sounds...It may show that their are not individuals on this team, no one too good for team. Before, I lauged at the flack that some of you gave J.O. about not doing this, but now it sounds like it is needed more then ever.
    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.
    Ash from Army of Darkness: Good...Bad...I'm the guy with the gun.

    This is David West, he is the Honey Badger, West just doesn't give a *****....he's pretty bad *ss cuz he has no regard for any other Player or Team whatsoever.

    Some people have had questions and redflags raised ever since JO returned last year and made very little difference in the team and then went out with an injury and the team played some of their best and most sustained basketball of the season.

    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.

    No. I think most of us thought the Ps would have been kicking butt with Tins and jermO back and instead we suck. WTF? It's the frustration and disbelief of what's happening with our supposedly two best players coming back. Remember when we were talking about overhauling Cleveland to get home court? Instead now we have people who would rather not even make the playoffs.
    Don't thank me, I'll kill ya.

    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!

    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........
