    Default What's the latest on Bender?

    I never heard. Did we ever hear that he turned in his paperwork to the league?
    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!

    Yeah, wondered about that too. This came up in another thread about our cap and it would be good to know what the team salary will be this summer and the next.

    Better yet, have the Pacers even filed the paperwork to say that Bender is retired.

    The last I new the team hadn't even applied for that yet.

    Doesn't seem like something that would make the news.

    Last I heard, he was revolutionizing the retirement process.

    Didn't you hear it? He might be back on the basketcourt soon! Some aliens visited him and repaired his knee. I read it somewhere...he said something like 'I'll be back'....

    Bender is currently in LA and traveling back and fourth to Miami. Why? We'll he's going to do what almost every retired athlete does. Become a rapper.

    His name? J-Knee.

    I heard Ron-Ron hooked him up with a deal, too. So, he's going to be on Truwarier Records.

    I liked how Bender made a point to show his loyalty and solidarity with the team and management (who stuck with him for 6 years) by showing up at Conseco for the playoffs to be there with his former teammates....

    When he was in Louisiana, he looted some new knees, so, assuming the transplant is successful, he'll be back next season. The bad news is, he looted them off of a short white guy, so he'll be 6'3" and won't be able to jump

    Well, IIRC the medical retirement rule is that a team's eligible for the med exemption if a player has played less than 10 games in the past year so they couldn't file it until fairly recently. Even if they could, the need for cap relief/signing FA's isn't until August (July 15?) so there's no huge hurry.

    Like bulletproof said, filing wouldn't make much news - even the approval would get about 1 paragraph.

    He filled out the paperwork, but injured his foot halfway to the mailbox. It'll be 6-8 weeks before he'll be able to send it in.

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

    I laughed really hard when I read what Lord Helmet said about Bender. Then I realized he was serious. I laughed even harder then.

    To furthur deadshot's revelation for the J-Knee single, here is the chorus.

    'I can shoot the three, as far as you can see,
    But I can't walk very fast or I'll blow out my knee.'

    While he is in Miami do you think they will retire his number?

    Actually, they are going to retire J-Knee's jersey. The Heat knew about J-Knee's dominating practices, and they want to honor him.

    Sorry, Ron-Ron's afamed, "Truwarier Records" already have signed him to a deal bigger than he got during his illustrious career with the Pacers.

    It would take a lot for him to move to a possible rival record label.
