    Not a chance. Merc may very well have shot us out of this series already with his streakiness.

    No way. His overall game would not work in rick carlisle's system.

    Mercer is washed up. He wouldn't help a bit.

    Are we missing Ron Mercer??
    Why do the things that we treasure most, slip away in time
    Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
    Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?
    Till we fall away in our own darkness, a stranger to our own hearts
    And life itself, rushing over me
    Life itself, the wind in black elms,
    Life itself in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you

    Refresh my memory... are we talking about the guy that got cut from the Spurs this year? During the season? The guy they paid not to show up to practice?

    Yeah, he'd be a lifesaver. ed:
    Welcome to Pacers Digest! New around here? Here are three tips for making the forum a great place to talk about Pacers basketball.

    • Log in. Even if you want to read instead of post, it's helpful because it lets you:
    • Change your signature options. You can hide all signatures by choosing "Settings" (top right) then "General Settings" (middle left) and unchecking the box "Show Signatures" (in the "Thread Display Options" area).
    • Create an ignore list. I know it may seem unneighborly. But you're here to talk about the Pacers, not argue with someone who's just looking for an argument. Most of the regular users on here make use (at least occasionally) of the "Ignore" feature. Just go to "Settings" -> "Edit Ignore List" and add the names.

    Enjoy your time at PD!

    The only person I know who misses Mercer is my sister, cause she thought he was a hottie.

    That said, we do need someone with decent range who can create his own shot. I fully expect us to get someone this summer. I have some ideas, but I'm saving them for after the season.

    No, we're missing Fred Hoiberg more than Mercer.

    Tell me this, In the Miller/Pollard switch we also sent Mercer and somehow Turkoglu to SA. What did either Sac or Indy receive in return? A retiring player mayber? I know we got a trade exemption worth somewhere between 2-4 mil but is that all??? Did Sac receive anything?
    If you get to thinkin’ you’re a person of some influence, try orderin’ somebody else’s dog around..

    The Kings received Miller, wasn't that more than enough?

    With respect to our trade exemption, I sure hope like hell that we use it this summer before it expires. The last time we had a trade exemption, it went unused.

    Right now, I wish we would have eaten Mercer's salary for a year and kept Turkoglu.

    But when I read Jose's response of needing THE Reggie Miller, I thought the same thing. We could have used the PRESENT Freddie Hoiberg.

    We got Danny Ferry, who retired.

    And yes, the Mayor would be nice to have on the bench.
    The poster "pacertom" since this forum began (and before!). I changed my name here to "Slick Pinkham" in honor of the imaginary player That Bobby "Slick" Leonard picked late in the 1971 ABA draft (true story!)
