    My guess is they will announce that Carlise is fired and Jermaine will be traded.

    can anyone name me one positive benefit to announcing they plan to trade JO that out-weighs all of the negatives that will come with doing so?

    Uh, get Peck to re-up his tickets?

    Seriously, there is no benefit to announcing you're going to trade someone. That's why players making public trade demands are so damaging, it hurts your bargaining position.

    At the most, Carlisle is gone. Maybe Donnie announces he's stepping down and RC will be Bird's assistant again.

    This may just be the most anticlimactic press conference in the history of sports.

    Wouldn't it just be a kicker if they had it to announce Rick was staying?

    Unless you just fessed up and said you are looking into a fullscale rebuilding mode and would look to trade JO since he's in the prime of his career and want to be fair with him as well as he's your most valuable commodity.

    That would telegraph that he's on the market.

    Other than just doing that, I don't see much value in putting those type of cards on the table.

    It's the Pacers... It also would not surprise me if it's 1500 words to say:

    "This was a disappointing season and over the next several weeks we (Donnie, Larry, Mo and Curly) will be looking into ways to avoid a repeat next season and return this team to the playoffs"

    I think they're going to announce they ran out of posters to give out.

    I hope it's to announce that they've paid David Stern to rig the lottery for them.

    If it is to announce that Carlisle is gone....at least they didn't dilly-dally while every remamining decent coach that is available gets snatched up while TPTB are debating something that should have happened sooner.

    This would be one of the few times that I think TPTB actually were decisive about something and not take weeks to decide.

    They'll probably announce they're in the process of creating a new slogan for 2007-08.

    Gyron kicks me in another thread and now you hop on board. I'm sure the guy that won it is probably decent, but if I see that blue Camaro out on the street I might go ballistic.

    Is this going to be covered anywhere via web?

    WIBC stream?

    Local TV stream?

    Anything?

    I really didn't expect this Press Conf. to come on time.

    If Carlisle is gone and not staying in the front office, I wonder if Hill being let go made things easier for TPTB?

    I think they've got enough sound dampers to take care of that - with or without people.

    Kevin Lee is expecting Bird to say Carlisle is gone.
