    Default Offseason Trade Idea

    Well, I didn't wanna do this...I'd much rather be posting a game 7 thread....but thats the way the cookie crumbles.
    We need more scoring badly. Ron Artest just completely choked and played like a moron.
    I say if we can pull some kinda Artest-4-T-Mac trade off we do it no questions asked. Here's what I came up with using RealGM Trade Checker:
    Indiana trades:
    PF Austin Croshere (5.0 ppg, 3.2 rpg, 0.7 apg in 13.7 minutes)
    SF Ron Artest (18.3 ppg, 5.3 rpg, 3.7 apg in 37.2 minutes)
    C Scot Pollard (1.7 ppg, 2.7 rpg, 0.2 apg in 11.1 minutes)
    PG Fred Jones (4.9 ppg, 1.6 rpg, 2.1 apg in 18.6 minutes)
    Orlando trades:
    SG Tracy McGrady (28.0 ppg, 6.0 rpg, 5.5 apg in 39.9 minutes)
    PF Juwan Howard (17.0 ppg, 7.0 rpg, 2.0 apg in 35.5 minutes)
    SG Reece Gaines (1.8 ppg, 1.0 rpg, 1.1 apg in 9.6 minutes)

    This gives us the BEST shooting guard in the NBA, a young backup PG/SG in Reece Gaines, and a very solid backup PF.
    Pacers could go with a lineup of
    Foster
    O'Neal
    Harrington
    T-Mac
    Tinsley
    With a bench of Reggie, Howard, Bender, AJ, Gaines +whoever we cna pick up via FA.

    Or we can go with
    O'Neal
    Howard
    Harrington
    T-Mac
    Tinsley

    Either way this looks like the best team in the league PERIOD.
    If we could do this trade I'd do it in a heartbeat.

    What I am wondering most about T-Mac is whether he would be willing to play under Carlisle's system?

    Somehow I don't think Orlando would do that trade.

    I'd do that in a heartbeat if Orlando would... essentially its McGrady for Artest and we get rid of Croshere's contract and Pollard who never plays anyway

    Because we need more offense. Not to mention he's a top 5 player in the league.

    A 3rd All-Star?
    We would be getting rid of 1 of our All-Stars, so we'd still have only 2 All-Stars.
    It's tough to do trades like this, not that we wouldnt be improving, but we grow so close to these players they become like family. But over time it heals.
    Like when Jalen Rose was traded, I was very upset. You all understand what I'm saying.

    Well we dont have to let both go. If Artest is traded for T-Mac is solves a lot of problems.
    It gives us a premeire scorer.
    We go from being weak at sg to having the best sg in the league. (besides maybe Kobe)
    It allows Al Harrington to start.
    It allows Reggie Miller to come off the bench.
    I Love Artest (hence the s/n) but things need to change.

    If you want TMac its gonna take more than bench players, I think the Magic would want JO.

    They wouldn't want JO. If they could get Harrington/Bender/Somebody else, they'd probably do it since Al and JB could/would start for Orlando.

    If McGrady wants out of Orlando they might settle for less... Just a thought

    Al Harrington and/or Bender will NOT get us Tracy McGrady. Artest probably would.
    McGrady is a SUPERSTAR. A team of O'Neal/McGrady/Harrington/Tinsley/Bender would be nearly unstoppable and would bring us championships for years to come.

    Tracy McGrady >>>>> Ron Artest
    McGrady gets a title, Artest gets us to the Finals (maybe)
    It's a no brainer people.
    Tracy McGrady is arguably the BEST PLAYER IN THE NBA.
    Put him on a team like the Pacers andhe gets even better.
    indygeezer I understand you're a very old man and don't understand these things, thats wy I'm here to help you
    With T-Mac we'd be not only the best regular season team in the league, but the best playoff team in the league.

    Default Best player in the league

    Best player in the league whose team finished last ... We don't need a superstar SG. We just need an average to good one.

    Best player in the league who led his team to the playoffs and almost single handedly eliminated the Pistons last year....
    Best player in the leagues who's led the league in scoring the past 2 years.....

    #1 It's not Ricks decision
    #2 what was he suppose to say? "Artest sucked bigtime, were gonna trade him and were telling you this to signifigantly lower his trade value".
    #3 If the Pacers actually get a shot at a player of Tracy McGradys calibre, neither Donnie nor Larry is stupid enough to pass it up.

    This trade wouldn't be trading just for tradings sake...this trade would make us an even better team.
    There's very few players I'd trade Artest for, T-Mac just happens to be one of those players and he just happens to be disgruntled and he just happens to wanna play in Indiana.
