Other (please specify - active players only)
Oh wait...... we already got him! PARTY!
Ron, Brad, or Dale. Somebody tough inside.
You Got The Tony!!!!!!
Dale Davis. Before this summer it was Al.
"They could turn out to be only innocent mathematicians, I suppose," muttered Woevre's section officer, de Decker.
"'Only.'" Woevre was amused. "Someday you'll explain to me how that's possible. Seeing that, on the face of it, all mathematics leads, doesn't it, sooner or later, to some kind of human suffering."
Ack! Private poll!
And for those voting for Artest...
"Derek Fisher will prove to be a much better NBA head coach than Steve Kerr."
"The Houston Texans will forever regret it if they do not take Johnny Manziel with the No. 1 overall pick. He will haunt them."
"You bet I'd take Tebow late in games over ARodg."
"Manti Te'o: the next Ray Lewis."
The Pacers have scorers and big men, thats why the top priority should be a playmaker, a steve nash kind of playmaker, stockton kind of playmaker... especially when you have a big powerforward all-star like JO.... with other words, nobody in that list, even tho i maybe think AJ is the best PG Pacers had since Mark Jackson.
On the other hand, i would pick JJ!! Pacers have absolutely ZERO pure shooters, pure outside shooters and thats really not good, seems to me (from the look of results in this list, Artest!? wtf!) like people / fans here really underestimate that we dont have any pure shooters (even Larry Bird himself didnt want a shooter in this team? WTF is going on?), almost like you dont care, its like if you really dont know what problem this will cause in games or you probably just think that all the slashers and 15-20 foot jumpshooting scorers we have now will overshadow that outsideshooting somehow, just wait and see my friends... but im not gona be here everytime and say "I told you so!".
With the choices given, had to go with James Jones looking at what we're
putting together right now. It wasn't easy passing on Primoz though.
If I could pick any past Pacer, for this team, would have to say
I did not know Primo was such a fan favorite. I would love to have Primo back has developed a nice game.
we need stylish suits at the end of our bench.
The poster "pacertom" since this forum began (and before!). I changed my name here to "Slick Pinkham" in honor of the imaginary player That Bobby "Slick" Leonard picked late in the 1971 ABA draft (true story!).
I'm (maybe) back after being repetedly banned, merely for supporting a different NFL team than do certain forum moderators.
Peja is my pick, late though I am in finding this thread.
Second would be, oh, Eric Piatkowski
Third, none of the above (nostalgia is for people who've already won a championship)
Pacertom, I thought of Brewer, too, but he's not an active player in the NBA now, is he?
And I won't be here to see the day
It all dries up and blows away
I'd hang around just to see
But they never had much use for me
In Levelland. (James McMurtry)
I said AJ only because Roger Brown isn't available.
The best exercise of the human heart is reaching down and picking someone else up.
Peanut Butter. Yeah, baby.
But I'd take Brad as well.
The ironic thing is that his new team will finish the upcoming season with a better record than his previous team. (Unless the Pacers wise up and trade some overrated (JO), undisciplined, uncontrollable (Jackson), unheathy (Tinsley) players.)
According to that list, I'd have to take JJ. He's got the upside and we need his 3 point ability big time. If we lost Tinsley, then I wouldn't mind having AJ back, but my vote is for AJ.
But we already got back who I really wanted, so all is good.
No Linking to your own site if it sells something.
I have to say that I voted for Artest. He is one of the best "Basketball Players" the Pacers have ever had. He's not a bad guy except that he fights with fans, breaks television cameras, asks for time off to promote a cd, alienates an entire fan base, fights with Pat Riley, changes his uni number as often as his underwear (guessing here ). Never mind, I want to change my vote to "other".
In 5 years, the Pacers will always be mentioned with the qualifier, the team that traded Artest.
Rick Smits. His 15 foot jumpers were money in the bank, so he would really open up the post for JO and Al. And with Rick you HAVE to guard him with a big.
