    Man I know we called for sweeping changes, but come on Larry you need to slow down with this hyper intensive offseason. I mean 3 new players, I mean how are we going to recognize our team.

    Cue LG33.






    PS. I can't believe this guy is going to be our backup PG. Its gotten so bad that we just signed a guy who averaged 4 ppg and 1 apg in 26 games to be our backup PG. God bless Larry Bird and Donnie Walsh.

    Well, it's now pretty obvious that UB and LG33 are on the Pacers' payroll.

    Seriously, though, this is very disappointing. We're making very minor changes to a lottery team.

    Wow, 2 summers in a row a PD request gets honored. First UB gets Daniels and now LG gets Diener. Further proof that TPTB read PD?!?

    Everyone place your orders now!



    I was interested in Diener as a 2nd round pick a few drafts ago, but as our first Pg off the bench?! I have to think that Pargo or McLeod would've been better. At least he can shoot the 3.

    LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL OMG it isn't a joke? Hasn't he been called the most physically weak player in the league???

    Someone on this board even has a tagline making fun of him from like Marc Stein at ESPN.

    The dudes who did the games for the internet feed for the summer league games, who work for Orlando, would just bust all over him.

    Wow. Sorry to maybe overeact, but wow.

    Its odd. I feel like we were in at least the ECFs with the type of offseason we are having. We are making tweeks that a contender would make.

    Didn't someone here want to sign Deiner?

    Is he more of Pass-first PG or shoot-first PG?

    His very limited stats seem to suggest that he does nothing more then take 3pt shots. Can he distribute the ball at least?

    EDIT - I looked at his stats....it looks like he's a shooter....but given that he has averaged 11mpg with 3FGA per game ( 2.2 of which were 3ptA )...I'm not sure what to make of his game.

    I would be more excited if IU signed him, not convinced he has the size to be a solid NBA PG.

    I believe it was the Bill Simmons saying he would challenge Deiner to a fight and could actually take him

    Oh well.

    If they'd have listened to me, we'd have Andre Miller right now.

    WOOHOO!!!

    The Indiana Pacers have found their backup point guard.


    The Pacers have agreed to a three-year deal with a player option on the third year with Travis Diener, Diener's agent, Doug Neustadt, said today.
    Neustadt said the deal will be finalized early next week.
    Diener, who played at Marquette, averaged 3.8 points and 1.3 assists in 26 games with the Orlando Magic last season.
    Diener, who is entering his third season, will backup starter Jamaal Tinsley next season.

    Thats a move I would love!!! This is signing a 4th string PG or an NBDL player to be your b/u, pg for 3 years. Good thing is the Jamaal will look like the best defensive true PG the Pacers have. Let me give Travis his nickname 3 mins into his reign as a Pacer, The Matador. Ole!

    Hes more of a not very good at anything, break the glass only in case of an extreme emergency PG.

    Oh BTW Pacer fans you're promised new shooters TRAVIS DIENER AND KAREEM RUSH!!! Rejoice that we are blessed with such competent leaders.

    Not a physically gifted player... Very small and weak... Not athletic.

    According to hoopshype.


    I see him as the third stringer behind whoever else can play point that wears a Pacer uniform this season.

    C - Murphy/Foster/Harrison
    PF - JO/Diogu/Mystery PF
    SF - Granger/Dun/Williams
    SG - Rush/Quis/Graham
    PG - Tins/Diener/Owens

    I'm sorry folks, but that ain't gonna ****ing cut it. If this is the team we're going to roll into the season with, I revise my prediction of 35-36 wins to 29-32 wins. That team just blows.

    God I'd hope Quis would at least start at the two. For the 30 or so games he is healthy that is. We have to be the most flawed team in the NBA. Its not even a contest.
