    Default Mark Cuban likes Jermaine

    Interesting post from his blog on the Olympics.

    http://www.blogmaverick.com/2008/06/...-the-olympics/

    Of interest:

    Lets put this in basketball terms...Would you trade KG, TD, Peja, Jermaine and 10 more all stars , and pay their salaries in case they get hurt , for ..........nothing.
    That's an interesting list of people for Jermaine to be included in, especially for people who think he'll never play 40 games again.

    Does this foretell some Indy/Dallas movement?
    Welcome to Pacers Digest! New around here? Here are three tips for making the forum a great place to talk about Pacers basketball.

    • Log in. Even if you want to read instead of post, it's helpful because it lets you:
    • Change your signature options. You can hide all signatures by choosing "Settings" (top right) then "General Settings" (middle left) and unchecking the box "Show Signatures" (in the "Thread Display Options" area).
    • Create an ignore list. I know it may seem unneighborly. But you're here to talk about the Pacers, not argue with someone who's just looking for an argument. Most of the regular users on here make use (at least occasionally) of the "Ignore" feature. Just go to "Settings" -> "Edit Ignore List" and add the names.

    Enjoy your time at PD!

    I don't think it means anything. Hell, Peja's in that Big 4 of his, too.

    I'm just as surprised that Peja is in that group. Yes, I think it's an odd statement and not sure at all why he picked those players.

    I think Cubes is stuck in the NBA of four years ago.

    Didn't say it, didn't think it. But he's implying that, in his opinion, Jermaine is still a valuable NBA player.

    Aren't they just all players who have played in international tournaments in the past with big contracts?

    No future predictions I believe, between Dallas and Indy.

    Or the thing in common is the amount of $Loot$ that would have to be paid if those guys go down in "meaningless" int'l competition.

    That's from a post four years ago and that's the top four of the MVP voting four years ago. I wouldn't look into it too much.

    I think it could show some insight into the possibilities for sure. People still view Jermaine as an elite big man, IMO. I seriously doubt people around the league are nearly as pessimistic as basketball crazy Pacers fans who have suffered through 4 years of basketball misery. Jermaine is exactly what the Mavericks lack when he's healthy. And not everyone around the league is going to write off a talented 29 year old 7 footer because of a few nagging injuries.

    Cuban certainly has deep enough pockets to view the 44 million as far less a risk than most other owners would. And that's the biggest downfall to a team wanting to aquire him. So why not, what other players out there could provide the Mavericks with what a healthy Jermaine could?

    1. A post presence to help free up Dirk and Terry on the outside.
    2. Help shutting down the lane and protecting the basket.
    3. Rebounding
    4. Pick and roll defense. The Mavs got pick and rolled to death by NO, and Jermaine is very good at defending it.

    Man, you're right. At first I thought only the bolded part was old, but after further reading I realized that the whole piece was old.

    A non-story.
