    I considered last year a breakout season. He actually played 70 games.

    But it will be interesting to see how he does under O'Brien.

    I just hope it's not a break-in season...

    I pray to God every night that he is traded...before more embarrassing incidents hit this franchise.

    I pray to God every night that he matures and gets it....before we have to do another trade for pennies on the dollar.

    Any trade involving Tinsley has us as a disadvantage, So...I'd rather he has a break-out season and grows up a bit, so we don't have to get bent over anymore then we already are with his deal.

    The boys got the talent no doubt about that, but does he have the brains? Part of me thinks he does, part of me thinks he doesn't, I'll be pulling for him.

    Man, I hope he does, cause he has too much talent to just throw it all away!! I wanna see some Brooklyn Ballin' from him, playmaking style next year. If that happens Pacers will be a fun team to watch

    Hopefully, this is true and that it has nothing to do with the results of his upcoming trial.

    I'm disappointed.

    I thought I was about to read a thread where Tinsley'd been sentenced to prison for the 8 Second Saloon Incident, was gonna break out and we'd have a year long series about it.

    I'd watch that.

    I'll believe JT has the wherewithal to make consitently sound decisions
    at crunch time when the games really count when I see it.

    And I'll be keeping my eyes peeled for a 'spotted zebra' too...

    If he does well under JOb, I will concede it was the coaching. He certainly does have some interesting skills and has had a number of strong games.

    However, it's hard to believe he can make huge strides with his shooting, decision-making, defense and leadership skills just because we have a new coach. Maybe some improvement, but not huge...which is what he needs along with more consistency.

    I expect more of the same from him...and that's not good.

    Tinsley having a breakout year is about as likely as the P's going to the finals next season.

    Just as a practical matter, how many players have a breakout year in their 7th season when they are going to be 30 years old during the season.

    Exactly. And I wouldn't call a thread predicated solely on a couple of YouTube highlights to warrant actual discussion.

    We all know his talent level, but we're all aware of his shortcomings. I don't see any of that changing at this point. The climate of the team isn't set up for him to become some magically amazing NBA point guard.

    wasn't Tinsley our clutch guy last year? He hit the gw vs. SA, and I can't remember if he hit any others. DG didn't hit any gw shots but showed hope, JO couldn't shoot, and our other guys just didn't seem to care. I think Jt will have a breakout year. Yeah he's been in the league for what 7 years?, but he can still improve. I say top 12 pg in the league. Just look at his stats from this year. If he indeed does breakout, there will be another reason to cheer at Conseco

    Point guard is the position where a player can make a big jump later in their careers. Beside it isn't like tins would have come from no where. I remember a time when people here said he was a top 5 point guard. Him having talent has never been the issue.

    I don't believe for a minute that Rick Carlisle made Tinsley the knuckle head that he is. Therefore I'm not holding my breath. If he has anything close to a breakout year, I'll be very surprised. My prediction: The honeymoon with Jim O'bryant will be a short one followed by a bout of sinupoutinitis.

    The jail jokes are getting pretty old (and repetitive). The guy has never committed a crime in his life. Well, not one that he was caught/punished for.
