I haven't really chimed in with my thoughts.
I'm very happy with the trade, as I thought JO's value was much lower.
From the Raptors perspective, I don't see why they do this trade. I can't see JO & Bosh working well together down low...specifically under the system they run in Toronto.
I'm very pumped for the draft tonight.
Oh yeah, and the way that Rasho was playing towards the end of last season was better than JO had been playing last season (honestly - it was scary). The guy isn't going to do that on a nightly basis, but he certainly is more than just a big body.
Rasho will be a nice surprise I think. I can see him ending up with alot of Jeff and Murphs minutes.
And I dunno what some of you guys are smoking, but TJ Ford is an great freakin player. Give the guy a chance.
I like getting Baston back. I was pretty down on him when he got here, but I was impressed over time. I'd be happy for him to get rotation minutes for us.
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!
“People talk about how quiet he [McKey] is, but he’s really been helpful. He gives a lot of insight to players in how to guard certain teams and what their weaknesses are. The whole team listens to him, and it makes my job a lot easier. Having players like him is what pro basketball is all about for me.” —Larry Brown
LOL. . .Colangelo still denying the reports. Shut up and admit already
R.I.P. Bernic Mac & Isaac Hayes
Charlotte Bobcats managing partner Michael Jordan confirmed to the Observer on Thursday that they were talking to the Raptors about a swap of Wallace and point guard T.J. Ford. The talks apparently hit a snag when Toronto additionally asked for a draft pick. Instead, the Raptors are moving Ford to Indiana in a trade involving forward Jermaine O'Neal.
I would LMAO if this trade fell through after we traded Bayless.
