There were quite a few comments before the trade deadline about Foster going somewhere else. He doesn't want to go elsewhere.
Question for Jeff Foster | Feb. 22, 2008
Q. I am a huge fan of your blue-collar work in the NBA. And you have become my favorite Pacer player since the time that Dale Davis played on the team – the key word is team. It takes all players to make up a good team and knowing what each player is supposed to bring to the table. You definitely know what you’re supposed to bring to the table and I applaud you for this. Enough of the praise and on to the question. Would you feel satisfied spending your entire career in Indiana even if it meant that you would not achieve the goal of obtaining a championship, like Reggie Miller? I ask this because in the current state of the Pacers, it does not look like they will achieve that level within the amount of time that you might have left in the tank. (From Wade in Indianapolis)
A. Obviously, it's every player's goal to win a championship and recently we've fallen on I guess you'd say harder times than we've had in the past, but I have no intention as long as I have anything to do with it of leaving this organization. It's my goal, if we can get back to championship form before I'm done to do that. If not, it's to help in any way possible to get it back to where, some day in the near future, we can compete for a championship again.
