    Default Larry Bird Press Conferance 11:00AM (old thread; nothing to see here)

    Just saw posted on IndyStar that they will be videocasting Larry Bird
    holding a press conferance at 11:00AM to discuss the Pacer's upcoming
    season.

    could this mean there's another trade?

    I hope so, because it doesn't seem like a "standard" time to call a press conference, but it could just be to talk about the start of training camp, which opens Monday.

    Strange, I think, wouldn't you just do it Monday when everyone is there anyway? Is there any more info?

    I doubt there's a trade. I think what you see is what you'll get.

    Maybe they are finally going to have Rasho's introduction presser.

    My guess is that Bird will say:

    -- We're excited about this season and the product that will be on the floor
    -- Our players are all healthy and ready for the season
    -- The players will be out helping the community (both Jarrett Jack and Granger were in Fishers on Thursday helping out -- Jack with dance studio and Granger with soccer practice)
    -- We're still trying to trade Tinsley
    -- Excited to play at the Pepsi Coliseum and in Ft. Wayne
    -- Rush and Hibbert have spent most of the summer working out and playing in Indy
    -- We're working on an extension for Danny

    I doubt it's a press conference for a trade or anything else. We'll see what happens, though. I don't expect any earth shattering news, however

    Tinsley: "We are not cutting big checks for players ... we've never done that here."

    "trying to work deals out that are 2-for-1"

    "guys in the locker room now are eager and ready"

    "Travis has still got soreness in bottom of his foot"

    "Mike's knee is a little sore ... nothing to be concerned about" [just great]

    Q: What were you most concerned about last year.
    A: "The Defense"

    Granger: "Hopefully we can get something done ... we're talking."

    Nice zinger by Larry at Kravis ... "are we interrupting your sleep". Ha!

    Bird on Hibbert:
    can he keep up with the pace?
    Should be better after the all star break. Will improve.

    We're bringing back Austin? Croshere?
