    That is an excellent article - all of it.


    You know what would have been crazy, if this little coin slip decided whether the Pacers got the 11th or 10th pick

    Unless we get really lucky and we make some significant changes....I'm beginning to agree with Naptown Seth.....I would much rather give up the pick this season since its chalked full of Frontcourt players that we don't need.

    The Basketball Gods and Emperor "Call me Palpatine" Stern hates the Pacers and their fans......I doubt that we end up keeping the pick.

    What's worse is if Philly gets a top 3 and we don't.

    I like the conspiracy theory notion mentioned at the end of the article. For those who don't know what Bruno's talking about, read the article from this linked thread and watch the YouTube video. I echo Bruno's sentiments. The Commis kinda owes us one and that "favor" is about 22 yrs overdue.

    I just saw that, and that is pretty fishy/shady, but that's what Stern is about.

    I wouldn't surprise me at all if the Celtics win the #1 overall, yeah they have a good shot anyways, but I'm guessing another storied franchise will get another chance to contend again.

    I'll be happy with #2 though Mr. Stern!

    We now officially ended the season in the worst possible place we could. It just keeps getting better.

    Yeah, I said a while back I expect the Celtics to end up with Oden, so everyone can compare him endlessly to Bill Russell.

    To Quote Bruno from his article:

    "Former second-rounder Erazem Lorbek is also one year closer to making the jump from Europe to the NBA."

    Well, that's certainly enough for me. Who cares about getting a lottery pick now?

    That guy was terrible at Michigan St., and I haven't heard any news of him improving from updates I've seen

    And ENDLESSLY it would be, from the facial hair, to the defensive and shot blocking mindset. That could be the worse place for him to end up, too many expectations beyond those he will already have!

    I really hope the NBA isn't rigged and things aren't being conspired, but every year there's something that just makes you go......

    I kind of think he looks more like Robert Parish.

    I don't understand. So you wanted to lose the coin flip.

    Not in the least. The WORST would have been the Pacers losing on purpose to get the lowest pick possible and ending up with #8. And THEN three lower teams all win the lotto and drop our pick to #11. THAT's the worst thing that could happen.

    As it is, we have one additional chance out of 1,000 slightly improving our chance of ending up in the top 3. That might be no news, it might be *barely* sort of good news, but it definitely is NOT bad news.
