    Default anyone else glad the pacers didnt......

    trade for gary payton...
    man, his game has really deteriorated in the last 2 years. i understand the laker's triangle isnt really the system best suited for him; but damn, he is getting killed....

    im actually surprised at how bad he has/is playing

    thoughts? comments?

    It's not his type of Offense and I think he would be doing better on another team , I think his poor gameplay has alot to do with his unhappy feelings in LA. He also maybe feeling alittle pressure as him , sam cassell and another player all have some of legal case they are dealing with , think it's a assault case, my details are fuzzy on the situation but I know it deals with a altercation outside a exotic dance club.

    Also if we made that trade Tinsley wouldn't have had the chance to improve this year. By the end of the season I thought Tins was better than Payton. And last season Payton would have made "the issues" a lot worse.
    "They could turn out to be only innocent mathematicians, I suppose," muttered Woevre's section officer, de Decker.

    "'Only.'" Woevre was amused. "Someday you'll explain to me how that's possible. Seeing that, on the face of it, all mathematics leads, doesn't it, sooner or later, to some kind of human suffering."

    He's getting old, but his defense has deteriorated quickly.

    At this stage, he's a rental. I'm glad somebody else is paying the rent, because I don't think he would help the Pacers *right now* as much as Tinsley does.
    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

    I wan't the Payton for Harrington trade, and I'm so happy it didn't go thru. Now we can get someone else for big Al.

    Not to mention how much better that would have made Milwaukee having Al to team up with Ford and Redd.

    Yup - I believe that happened up here in Toronto.
