Thread: Jermaine Wouldn't Object To Trade

    Default Jermaine Wouldn't Object To Trade

    Jeremaine O'Neal said he's not bothered that his name has been mentioned in trade rumors since the offseason, including ones involving the Nets, Lakers, and Celtics.

    Pacers president of basketball operations Larry Bird said they aren't talking trade anymore, but O'Neal, who is making $19.7 million this season, has no problems with being moved.

    "If that situation presents itself, then that's what it is," O'Neal said. "I told those guys this summer that if you feel like you need a situation that you can better this team, I'm all for it because they've given me the opportunity to really achieve some of the things that I wanted to achieve and also establish my name. It would be no hard feelings whatsoever."

    That quote sounds really familiar, he's been saying it for like 2 years now.

    I don't see how this is news.

    I don't see a problem with the quote either. He's not saying he wants to be traded. He's saying that he thanks the franchise for what they've done for him and if they feel they need to move him, then do what they feel is best for the franchise.

    I see absolutely nothing wrong with that quote.

    Seems to me that someone pulled up some old quotes to cause some controversy.

    Gotta love the media. And by "love," I mean, "want to beat to death with a dead raccoon."

    I prefer porcupines or flaming gerbils.

    Saw this in David Thorpe's ESPN chat.

    Tim: (Indianapolis): Jermaine O'neal has a 12.31 PER. I don't think this guy wants to be here.

    PETA would not like us force feeding porcupines. They have rights you know.

    True, it's nothing new. On the other hand, wouldn't we prefer that
    he said basically, "screw a trade, I'm not going anywhere. I have one
    singular mission and that is doing all I can to get the Indiana Pacers
    back to the NBA Finals" !

    I know I would.

    But that would be honest and ludicris. This team is not going to win a championship with JO on this team.

    Ya, I know. The rhetoric sounds better though. If it was up
    to me, he'd have already been traded and Bynum would be
    wearing a Pacer jersey these days.

    Heck, at this point, while I didn't like the NJ deal then, I
    could live w/ it now.

    Kinda hard to generate that when the TPTB make moves that lack that same kind of commitment...

    Too bad Brad, Ron, Peja and Stephen didn't have that commitment too!

    Anyone want to trade O'Neal and Tinsley for Odom and Brown?

    I think we can do better than Odom and Brown.
