    I maybe in the minority here....but I agree with you....it's worth considering.

    But I doubt that Marbury would go to a small market like Indy and be happy in anyway.
    He's talked about moving to Italy once his career is over.
    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!

    There was a time when Marbury might have helped you. That time isn't now.

    If I were your brain trust and wanted a PG I'd be talking to Portland. They have Blake, Jarrett and Rodriguez. Any of them would be a big upgrade as a backup and Jarrett and Blake could both start.

    I don't want him cause he would help us on the court.

    I'd be estatic to dump the Never-Ending Story contracts of Tinsley and Murphy in order to pay Starbury to embarrass himself in a Pacer uni for the rest of this year and then trade him away as an expiring or just buy him out sometime next year. And Zeke is the one guy in the League that may legitimately want Jamaal.

    Then you trade away JO and that's $45 million off the books before 2009-10. Danny and Ike would just be starting their extensions, and Dunleavy would be around, and we'd be paying whoever we get back from JO...but we'd still likely have like $15 million to spend on real talent...plus a few good draft picks.

    It's way past time to start over. And if you're gonna blow it up, may as well blow it up in style...Starbury style.

    This will make post # 1,000,001 in which I make a plug for Steve Blake. I think I've been wanting him here for as long as I've been a member on this board.

    Gosh it's good to have the team in the news - I would say the team I follow but I've been desperately trying NOT to follow them for over a year now, and will continue to desperately try not to follow them until Isiah Thomas is finally fired.

    Marbury may have something on Isiah - we all know he's a snake. But IMO it's more likely that Marbury's mouth made noise without ever consulting his brain - which is pretty much the case whenever his mouth makes noise.

    Marbury is owed 42 mil over the next two years by the Knicks..
    He skipped practice and the game yesterday because he was told he wouldnt be a starter.
    this the the team leader they expected?

    "Isiah has to start me," Marbury fumed, according to the source. "I've got so much (stuff) on Isiah and he knows it. He thinks he can (get) me. But I'll (get) him first. You have no idea what I know."

    This should be fun.

    Isn't it great that Isiah moved on to the Knicks to help destroy thier franchise instead of ours.

    I mean I know ours isn't the world class model right now, but him destroying the knicks is so funny for so many reasons. Sorry Rimfire, its just too funny.

    The only team in the league in worse shape than the :thepacers.

    That's almost too ridiculous to believe, yet... Marbury is an idiot and has said stupid things before. Wow... I still can't believe he said that.

    Is he that stupid? No contender will consider signing him if that's what he said.

    Larry is not coming back, he didn't have a meeting with Orlando for not reason, yeah he is coming back to the NBA but not to the Pacers, the notion that he is a taking a year off and then come back is absurd.

    Unfortunately, I think that Bird thinks that Deiner would be a suitable backup PG whereas I think that Deiner would be a suitable roleplaying Guard that should only come in when we need a 3pt shooter on the floor.

    Player: Punches Were Thrown Between Isiah And Marbury

    Bergen Record -
    Isiah Thomas and Stephon Marbury clearly were involved in an argument on a flight from New York to Phoenix, but the Bergen Record is reporting that it escalated to a physical confrontation.

    One NBA player close to the situation said punches were eventually thrown -- a claim the Knicks denied -- and one person on the flight was heard describing the scene this way.

    I guess Marbury's motto is: "Start me or fight me."

    I initially considered adding Marbury as a decent move, but after this, no thanks. But man, this is entertaining though. I'm just glad it's not happening with the Pacers for once.

    Ah yes, I remember that cover. It was as ridiculous then as it is now.

    One thing's for sure. Isiah is gonna have a tough time getting a job anywhere after his tenure with the Knicks is over with.
