    Default Jermaine wants traded rumor!!!!

    See the www.benmaller.com website link for story.

    Jermaine O'Neal, former MVP candidate of the Pacers, is hoping for a trade to the Trail Blazers, according to BenMaller.com NBA moles. O'Neal played the first four years of his pro career with the Blazers and still makes his offseason home in Portland. Jermaine is set to make $18 million dollars in 2006-07, the Blazers could deal Theo Ratliff ($11.6 Mil) and Darius Miles ($7.7 Mil) to Indiana to match up salaries.

    There's no story there - there is't even an "according to" line or any semblance of a source. Sorry, but I think this is a waste.

    Before we jump to conclusions, is anyone sure if the rumors from www.benmaller.com website have ever panned out? I'm not familiar with it, so I don't know. I just want to know if they're known to make stuff up. It seems made-up to me.

    I find it hard to believe that if Jermaine demanded a trade to anywhere, that it would be to Portland.

    No, I'm saying I don't believe Ben Maller NBA moles.

    I suspect PD has bigger connections to JO than Ben Maller does.

    I've never heard of Ben Maller. And yes I'm sure we'd take Miles and Ratliff for J.O.

    Maller's bio just for you UB....Of course this is from the www.benmaller.com site as well.


    Ben Maller is an entertaining voice of sarcasm as a weekend host and the "sixth man" of Fox Sports Radio.

    Ben's unique, sarcastic, common-man view on sports mixed with a passionate cynical attitude has created a loyal audience. On the air, Maller takes it one call at a time and goes by the simple philosophy that "most games are lost, not won."

    Maller's 12-year radio career began in the early 90's as a reporter for XTRA Sports 690 AM in San Diego, and has included stops at Radio Sports Creations, and at KXTA in Los Angeles in the late 90's as the host of the popular "Ben & Dave Show," as well as the host of Dodger Talk.

    Ben has broken a number of stories over the past few years on his popular Internet site, BenMaller.com, having received credit in newspapers including the Philadelphia Daily News, Minneapolis Star-Tribune, Houston Chronicle, Los Angeles Daily News, Seattle Post-Intelegencer and Arizona Republic, among others. Major sports sites such as FoxSports.com and SI.com have also credited Ben's site.

    Maller has made numerous television appearances including the popular "Sports List" show on FSN.

    Ben attended Saddleback College in Mission Viejo. The Native of Orange County is single and lives in Hollywood.

    I think somewhere I've heard him referred to as the Drudge of sports.

    I wonder if he's hiring. There are some moles currently employed in my front lawn that I hope would re-locate for the right opportunity. They seem to be hard working.........

    Now I don't want to give any credibility to this guy, but I think Portland does have somethings we might be interested in.

    I'm not interested in Miles, we are already set at that position unless you believe Darius, Croshere, Foster and Granger are good enough for the PF-position. I'm not a Randolph or Ratcliff fan either, BUT I assume the Trailblazers still do hold their draft pick for the upcoming draft? It's bound to be top-5 atleast.

    Combine that with a bigcontract of theirs, I might consider it IF we decide to rebuild almost the whole team.

    Sorry Jermaniac, but when Maller's mole says it, it's probably true. Known to be reputable like the gopher from Caddyshack.

    Say No to Randolph...even with a 1st rounder. I want to steer clear of players with attitude problems that don't get along with Management.

    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.

    Oh, I'd turn around and trade Randolph as well..but they're desperate to get rid of his contract..they wouldn't do a deal without getting rid of Randolph.

    Randolph, like Bonzi, does not need to be back in Indiana. Its the worst possible scenarios for their futures. Too many things have happened here.

    Any clues on what kind of money Pryzbilla wants or being talked about?

    Besides, doesn't JO reside here during the offseason, now that he has a palace, a night club he owns, and a rolls royce to get him there? If you can't even get that fact straight.....

    The only Blazers I'm interested in are Joel Pryzibilla, Martell Webster, and their draft pick

    Ha Seung Jin anyone?

    Well then let me help out.

    The dude makes stuff up.
    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!
