    I vote Unclebuck because Hicks beat him out for Sunshiner.

    Tough Call. I think Peck is the most important poster to PD, but this year he is like an NBA player who puts up fantastic statistics while only playing in 50% of the games (therefore, not an MVP).

    So it's a tough choice, will have to think about it. Debating between JayRedd and Unclebuck right now.

    I don't know how you can vote for JayRedd. He's the Ross Perot of this award. Funny to look at, but not a real candidate.

    And newman, well who knows. newman can be Ron Paul I guess.

    Last year was the first time I didn't vote for UB, but he came back with a vengeance this year.

    He's the Tim Duncan of the forum. He's such a valuable part of the forum that you often don't notice how much he adds here.

    Seth is a close 2nd for me. He's the Chris Paul of the forum, had a great year but just needs to wait one more.

    This is an incredibly tough call. I think I'll wait a little bit and see how things play out before I make my pick.

    I would like to have seen TBird nominated.

    What, no votes for your other 87 user names?

    There's always the possibility you could start a whole new forum where you could talk to yourself endlessly through your different surnames. For the first time in your entire life, you'd be the most popular guy in the room!

    Unclebuck.

    I don't think many posters realize how often they are just plain wrong in their during- and after-game comments. (After many games, posters would criticize the Pacers for "always" settling for the outside 3-pt attempt, when the shot diagram clearly showed attempts from all over the floor including a large number in the paint.) But Buck's post-game comments are reliable. He has a very good eye for the game, and he has no sense of humor and (apparently) no life outside basketball, so he never exaggerates his point or sacrifices relevancy for the sake of humor.

    I don't even like the same type of game Unclebuck likes (His is all defense and "getting to the line." I'd rather see teams running the floor, going as long as possible without a whistle.) But I know his posts are going to be consistent and insightful.

    Next to Mark Boyle and Slick Leonard, I probably learn more details about the Pacers' on-the-floor activities from reading Unclebuck than anywhere else. That makes this forum great.

    I do appreciate all the kind remarks. Thanks


    I think I usually vote for Peck, but I can't this year - (read Adam's post)

    So I am voting for Hicks. your knowledge of the game is as good as anyone who posts on here -

    UB of course. He's one of the most consistent posters here. He is always knowledgable on the subject matter, and has a a great sense of humor, that he uses when you least expect it.....
