JMV is going after Krappitz
JMV is going after Krappitz
Kravitz is on right now, but I missed what he said about the Pacers
Paraphrasing here ...
Kravitz saying Pacers are idiotic if you plan on haviing Tinsley and Jax in the backcourt, (as well as Sarunas as the backup PG)
Amazed you that can't trade Tinsely for baked beans. Thinks the Pacers have tried to Shop Tins since the offseason with no luck.
Thinks they should have kept Freddy if they are going quicker, was the only one who could create his own shot.
In regards to Chemistry and the promise to fix that again Tins and Jax need to go. Where is the outside shooting going to come from. Questioned what really good moves has Bird even done, except Fire Thomas and bring in Carlisle.
Not sure what impact White or Williams can provide this year..
His opinion is Indiana won't make too many moves at all after getting Harrington .
Why Not Us ?
IF the Pacers have been shopping Tins and have no takers what does that tell us?
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."
His comments about Marquis Daniels proves how ignorant he is. But I didn't hear why he doesn't think Daniels is any good.
I like these hate letters on Kravitz.

Another moment from BK right there.Thinks they should have kept Freddy if they are going quicker, was the only one who could create his own shot.
Really, when was Fred doing this? I remember them running lots of PICKS for him to go hard right and then charge the lane. What I don't recall is Fred able to get his own shot consistantly out of ISO's. Jack, yes, especially when he drops the hesitation/ball fake act for 6 seconds straight, but Fred needed a big man to help him come free.
And god help him if the play required him to go left.
Fred was energy, had a great 3 when he wasn't injured, ball hawked well and used his leaping in a good way on both rebounding and defense, but he was clearly plateaued at the "solid bench guy" level. Daniels gives you that.
DW - Okay....how about Tinsley for your << insert any 1st/2nd tier player here that you want >>?
Opposing GM - Uhhh...isn't he injured all the time?
DW - Nah...those are just freak sinus infections. He has sinuses like Karl Malden. I read on some Pacer forum that he's a top 5 PG when he is.....uhh...I mean...a top 5 PG in the league.
Opposing GM - Wait a sec...you said...he'a s top 5 PG when he is.....when he is, what?
DW - Nothing......I said nothing.
Opposing GM - No...I really thought that you were going to say something.
DW - Uh..... << waves hand at phone in Obi-Wan Kenobi fashion >> Tinsley is a top 5 PG in the league
Opposing GM - Huh?
DW - << waves hand again at phone in Obi-Wan Kenobi fashion >> Tinsley is a top 5 PG in the league
Opposing GM - WTF are you doing? Just tell me what you were going to say....
DW - <<< thinking to himself....damn, that only works in the movies >>....Okay...I was going to say that Tinsley is a top 5 PG when he is healthy.
Opposing GM - Huh...louder please....
DW - I said....when he is healthy.
Opposing GM - So...you're telling me that you want to trade Tinsley... a player that has debilitating Sinus infections that keeps him out of games...for my 1st or 2nd option on my team?
DW - Uhh....did I say that he's a top 5 PG in the league?
Opposing GM - Donnie...I think I have to go now....uhh...the kitchen is on fire....
DW - Did I mention that he's known for his great Street-ball mentality? He can hit the 3pt shot from anywhere on the court....I saw him doing it while sitting from the bench during pre-game shootarounds....no really...he's a good guy...he just has bad sinuses....nothing that a years worth of Nasal Decongestant can't solve.
Opposing GM - Bye Donnie....see ya at the next All-Star game << quickly hangs up >>
Ash from Army of Darkness: Good...Bad...I'm the guy with the gun.
^^I was about to make an arguement but I just had to laugh at that because you do have a point. I just think that if we've shopped Tinsley and can't get anything for him, then we might as well give him a shot and see what happens. TPTB seem to think we have 'just in case' coverage, so I'll just state an opinion on the whole matter when the season has started.
As of now, I think we're doing the right thing. AJ isn't an uptempo point guard, and Tinsley is the perfect point guard if he can stay healthy. There isn't any starting caliber point guards on the market, so we stuck with what we have. Which, if he can at LEAST give us 70 games + Playoffs, then there's no doubt that Tinsley will be the man.
