    You could PM him if it's directed only at him. But if you want others to chime in, this is the place.

    This thread is bias, I'm going to go back and read the terms and conditions and see if this is legal.

    My favorite active Pacer is...Ron Artest.

    My favorite non-Pacer is Tim Duncan.

    Jermaine O'neal
    He became my favorite player the day we traded DD for him and I saw him play his first game. I just liked what he could become. I didnt know he would be this good though. He was a shot blocking beast and I liked that.

    Favorite Pacer? I'm not really sure. I love pretty much all of them when they're doing whatever they do best, including Ron. Brad was my favorite when he was here. I used to say JO, but some things this year have made me waiver a bit on him. I suppose technically it's Stephen Jackson, but for essential superficial reasons.

    Non Pacer? Manu Ginobili. I love his game, and his attitude. And it's nice to have someone who I can relate to a little more for a change.

    Foretaz, I'm going to respond to your question.

    Just not right now.



    Okay. Now I can.

    My favorite player is David Harrison.

    Why? I don't really know. I've tried to put it in words before, it didn't work so well.

    It's one of those things that you just can't get under your thumb, it's slippery like that. For instance, have you ever asked yourself why the wind blows?

    David Harrison is my favorite player because the tree-leaves wiggle.

    Because it plays for the Clippers?

    Okay, that was bad. Really bad. I'm old. Give me a break.

    Favorite Pacer starter: Jermaine O'Neal - People are hating on him this year, and that's just a part of it. Almost every great player has gone through a time when they weren't liked by his home crowd-- even Reggie. Every off-season, Jermaine has gone above the expected and continued to make himself better.

    Favorite non-starter: Jeff Foster - My two beefs with Jeff is that he can't block or set a legit pick. I love guys that go after rebounds

    Favorite non-Pacer: It's weird to say, but I'll say Shaq. He's funny. I love guys that can make a cliche line actually funny with the "Reggie F. Miller" comment.

    I wish that I could say Artest or Jackson, but I don't trust them as much. I do trust Jermaine. If Jackson can give me a solid year, then he might pass JO for me. Jackson wants to win, and not just because of what he said after Game 6. He wants to develop Harrison by keeping him motivated and wants to win at any cost.

    I don't know.

    I know I would try to keep up with him and watch him play if he were traded.

    im assuming the potential negatives that were floated around concerning him right after we drafted him played no real role then in this decision.....is that correct?

    Pacers: 1: Jamaal Tinsley 2: JJ and 3: Ron Artest.
    Last year it was 1: Artest 2: Tinsley 3: J.O., it's obvious why it's turned around this year...

    Non-Pacers:
    Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili and Alonzo Mourning .

    I think that's correct. Not sure what 'decision' it is that you are talking about though.

    I was actually pretty disappointed when we picked David, I was hoping for Kevin Martin (he was taken a few picks earlier, I think). David did not become my favorite player until the post-brawl Orlando game, which was the first time I had actually gotten a chance to watch him.

    Prior to that? Probably Jermaine, although Jeff was close.

    Tinsley is my second favorite now.

    Hey, I hoped we would get him sometime ago, alas it worked out differently. He's the definition of a "warrior athlete", Ron is close, but Zo is the leader of that group to me.
