    I really don't think Rasho wants to be here, call it a hunch, but my gosh that was the most unexcited interview I've ever seen. You would think he was a college kid in line to take the SAT, "yeah I'm excited...to get this over with."
    Rasho is apparently one of the more lively guys in the locker room and a real practical joker when the cameras are off, but he hates giving interviews with a passion (at least, he did in Toronto). His accent is thick, he seems to find most questions the media ask him being not particularly insightful or intelligent. But Rasho is a pro all the way: he just wants to play ball and he'll do quite well for you.

    I don't think he's unhappy to be in Indiana at all. He should be fairly excited, the way he finished the year last year and that carried over into the Olympic qualifying tournament. He knows he's going to start and has an opportunity to play for a new contract. Plus, he's now working under a real coach - he'll be happy.

    Or about O'Brien.
    o'brien has won a playoff series (several in fact) - so i don't think it is out of the question to say that in the spectrum of coaching o'brien, just by virtue of reaching the ECF, ranks higher than sam mitchell.
    This is the darkest timeline.

    Or Popovich...

    Rasho's a good guy. And he's an NBA Champion!
    12/27/2005 at Spurs - SamBear - 3

    1/2/2008 vs Memphis - SamBear - 19


    4/9/2014 - Luis Scola also recorded a season high with 24 points and Evan Turner added 23 for Indiana.

    Hey, SamBear!

    What can he do offensively besides hit a 15 footer? Does he have any real post up game?

    How is his post defense?

    What do you think about his rebounding, both on offense and on defense?

    All I'm saying is that he stayed in Toronto up to the last minute he HAD to leave.

    That said, he's a professional, and a pretty good centre to boot. Someone's exact words: "Rasho's gonna surprise people - people are sleeping on Rasho." He firmly believes he'll be the outright starter in no time (and if you saw Rasho play towards the end of last season, it's not hard to see why).

    I just watched some highlights of him on YouTube. I mean I don't get the idea of how much of an all-around player he is if he is, but he is capable of some nice inside scoring.

    I agree. I just watched a YouTube clip, but it was the pass by TJ Ford at 20 seconds in that got my mouth watering.

    Awesome video, at the 1 minute mark Rasho does a Hakeem move, he doesn't make it, but he's always way less stiff than I remember early in his career and not nearly as soft.

    He doesn't get to the FT line, like ever, but I hope he's one of these guys who is way better his last 3 years in the league than his first 7.

    Let the Sun Shine in and meet it with a grin...

    Nothing gets me more excited about a new player acquisition than a "highlight video" of him displaying mid-range jumpers, put-backs, unconverted post-moves and an ability to injure Reggie Evans.

    Champ-ion-ship.

    Rasho's been a role player the last few years. There is no reason to believe he'll be anything more here. To get all statistical on you.....


    Last 3 seasons

    20.2 MPG
    4.4 RPG
    6.1 PPG
    8,400,000 dollars the Pacers will pay him this year.

    There's no reason to get excited about this guy.

    There's no reason to get excited about this upcoming season, period.

    What I'm excited about from Rasho is that he can help teach Hibbert. He's more than just an expiring contract that will start for a season during our rebuilding, he's a potential mentor for the budding leader of our defense. He might be overpriced for a big-man coach, but he's the closest thing we've had to a big-man coach since Isiah was here and had Tree Rollins with him.
    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

    Um, no. Not in the least.

    I talked to a guy recently who was looking for something.

    Him: "I looked everywhere! I literally turned my office upside down to find it!"
    Me: "You literally turned your office upside down?"
    Him: "Yeah, I looked everywhere!"
    Me: "Did it help to literally turn everything upside down?"
    Him: "Huh?"

    Anyway, you keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

    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!

    That 8.4 million dollars comes off the books at the end of the year. That's pretty exciting!

    But seriously, we know what we're gonna get with Rasho and what we'll get will be decent enough to groom Hibbert for the starting C role and ease him into it rather than throwing him to the wolves right away. That and Rasho doesn't have any glaring flaws and is a fundamentally sound player who can guard the bigger Centers of the league effectively.
