    Alright, I'm back from actually having a life and man do I have schtick ready. Consider this my magnum opus.

    First of all, I really think that like we were discussing earlier, Pacers fans are going to LOVE Head. Head is a total crowd-pleaser. Obviously you love Granger and JO but man, you are just going to LOVE Head. Trust me. We could have fan appreciate nights where we could give Head to the fans. Finally, what they want. Head among the people! Finally.

    Imagine if Obie had the following press conference:
    "We acquired Luther Head today from Houston. We are all very excited about him. It's sick how excited we are about this kid Head. (Cue "Don't Stop Til You Get Enough" by Michael Jackson playing in the background). I promise you folks, we will be starting every night with Head and definitely ending with Head. And in the middle chuckles, you'll see Head on the bench. We're definitely excited about what Head on the bench encouraging the entire team. Overall, this is a great acquisition. Thank you."

    The only other place I could think of that Head would be more popular is GS. I know that the Bay Area has been longing for Head for a while.

    This brings me to my second point. I also think that we should go after Rudy Gay. See if we can't pry him from the Grizz. Now, I know you were excited to see Farmar-Head in Conseco but lemme try to see where you stand on this one: Gay-Head. Every...single...night...even if we need to do a Rockets-Pacers-Grizzlies trade, Bird really needs to try to get Gay-Head. It would be an interesting experiment...tell me that Murphy and Dunleavy wouldn't love Gay-Head in front of them.

    This brings me to my third point. Whether it is Gay-Head or Farmar-Head, Head in the backcourt is also going to raise the spirits of the lockerroom. We've already covered Murphy and Dunleavy but you don't think that JO would appreciate at least Head if we can't get him a legit scoring option? I mean, if you can't get a score, you get Head...right? The only Pacer I think that might have a problem with Head is Danny. I mean, we all know Danny is religious and don't know if religion quite flows with Head. Can you help me out here...religion and Head? Does that work? If it does, then damn it, give Danny some Head-action too! I know he'll love it!

    (Drops mic) And like Costanza, I'm going out on top, virtually retiring from this thread. Thank you all. Thank you Luther Head. Thank you JayRedd. Thank you all who participated in the thread and thank you most of all to the admins...it's been a long night for you guys, I'm sure. You should relax and partake in all this Head...I kid, I kid. Guys, anything further to add.

    Just for the record I checked out his stats on NBA.com

    http://www.nba.com/playerfile/luther...eer_stats.html

    Head seems to be very good from deep. 4th best in the league.

    A good Cook is hard to find, for sure, and may be a little more practical to have.

    But Head is better.

    But Bird it married, right? I think there is some unwritten rule that makes it a lot harder to obtain Head after awhile.

    Well, i agree that we should get Gay - Head in our backcourt if we can, especially if we can get J.O to bang down lown in the paint, maybe even Brown aswel if we go to L.A.

    Personally i think we should try a trade with toronto for Juan Dixon, i would love a Dixon-Daniels combo. Even better if they give us Humpries.

    With that team i think we can make a deep run!

    So..............uh..................seriously guys.........

    I stated in another thread that I wanted Luther on this team, in a thread where I pointed out that he is already better than Dunleavy and way, way cheaper. Hopefully, this trade is a prelude to a Pacers trade with the Lakers where we make a side deal along with the main deal. Something like Luther for McCloud. Either that or aquiring Luther makes Farmar expendable.

    I've been desperate for Head for a long time, guys.

    Talk about hard negotiations. These guys are willing to do ANYTHING to get a deal done. I just don't get why the Rockets would feel they need to give Head when clearly it's the Lakers that are desparate.

    I'm thoroughly disgusted. Does anyone really think the Lakers are getting Hea...Luther for our benefit? Isn't he just the better player (of the two) overall?

    The Rockets aren't just gonna give us Head. They're not that kind of a team. We'd have to pay a hefty price for Head, but it be worth it. Head can be very explosive, and that's when you'll see some amazing shots. Shots that will blow your mind. Really, if we could get good ball handling to go with Head, that just makes it all the better. Maybe the Rockets would throw in Rafer Alston?

    I'd also take Rudy Gay, since he's a great ball handler (or so I've heard) which Dick Harter would love. He's a good dribbler but a disappointing shooter. Maybe he could practice shooting with Dick? I bet Rudy Gay would enjoy that. I've shot with Dick before and it was a very enjoyable experience so i don't see why Rudy wouldn't like it. Hell, most men would enjoy it unless they were nuts. But let's not get into nuts right now.

    What about doing after the Clippers' Dong? Dong is raw but very hard. He almost reminds me of a young Dale Davis except Dong isn't quite as big, which is why John Amechi turned down a contract with the Clippers and instead wanted to go play with Gregor ****a in Europe.

    You know, there's actually a porn star named Houston? I know a lot of you guys have been to the Indy 500, but how many of you have ever been to the Houston 500? It'd be hard to get Head from Houston, but it wouldn't be that hard to get head from Houston.

    I think we will never deter Phil Jackson from getting what he wants, and if he wants Head in a triangle, he will probably get it.

    Would Jennie Buss be ok with Phil Jackson getting Head from Houston? Maybe she's the type who would get into it? Phil's a lucky guy, even though he looks like Colonel Sanders.


    You know, the Pacers could draft Bobby Brown (NBADraft has him going #59 to Phoenix) and maybe Bobby could help convince Houston to give us Head? Luther could do both Bobby and Houston proud if he could crack our starting lineup.

    Playing Devil's advocate here,

    Might Head be overrated?

    23 general managers passed on Head in 2005, and they must have looked at a lot of film. Elgin Baylor, who one would think could use Head, preferred to secure the rights to Yaroslav Korolev. Ditto Orlando, and Fran Vaquez.

    You can understand, perhaps, choosing Granger. But Julius Hodge?

    Head must have not been impressive in the private workouts.

    Clearly you are not familiar enough with Head.

    Bird might try to get Head for Dick Harter and find that money shot (the 3pt shot that is), but that still won't make him Gay....I mean Rudy Gay is a totally different type of player.

    its hard to compare those two... first of all there is the fact that head is quite undersized (which i know doesn't matter to most of you) and at times inadequate for his position. ultimately, when you consider everything, gay overall has a more robust package than head
    This is the darkest timeline.

    I hadn't even heard the rumor that we could maybe get Gay/Head in a three-way. Honestly, I'm not really into it, but it seems like a lot of people on the board would be into getting Gay/Head in a package. To each his own.

    If the new Grizz GM really is up for a three-way, maybe we could get them to throw in some other players to sweeten the deal. From what I've been hearing over the past few years, I don't think it's out of the question that we could receive Gay/Cardinal/Head.

    Of course, it would always be easier to get Swift/Head. I hear they've been (rightly) dissapointed with that situation lately, but I fear it would just leave us unsatisfied as well. In fact, I can't think of a single Pacer fan that would want Swift/Head.

    Too bad they don't still have Lorenzen Wright. Because I can't think of anything better than waking up in morning, sitting down on the couch, turning on Sportscenter and finding out I'm about to get Head/Wright.

    The Heat need a point guard and the Rockets apparently want a power forward. So let's get Riley in a meeting early Sunday, maybe buy him some breakfast, and ask him really, really nicely. If we are smooth enough, Tinsley and Foster might be just enough to get us some Mourning/Head.

    I think that LH would be a great addition to this team.

    I don't really get why Houston wants to trade him. A great complament to TMac and Yao IMO.

    And if the Rockets are really considering swaping Luther Head for Brian Cook then their asking price isn't that high either.

    Would Jeff Foster, David Harrison be enough for LH plus Alston or Sura? I know that I would be more than willing to take on Alston's contract if it means LH is in the deal.

    LH is a long range bomber who should still get better.

    Head has great driving skills which enable him to blow by defenders like they're not even there, especially the bigger ones.

    I actually remember Frank being quite high on Head last year.

    Saying that Head is the real deal.

    If the Rockets give Head for Cook, they must be blowin' it up.
