    His Posey decision, and leaving that 2nd unit in so long cost us the game. How you don't have Granger, Hibbert or Collison on the floor is just baffling.

    Hansbrough behind Posey on the depth chart has NO logic.

    If he could, I'm sure he would trade Darren Collison to New Jersey in order to get Troy Murphy back and think it was a STEAL b/c he was able to keep Posey

    Earlier, I had posted a reply to one of Peck's posts that I will not give JOB a reprieve.... that I wanted him gone ASAP.

    I've changed my mind on that.

    I enjoy watching the Pacers when they actually execute the motion offense. Decent motion brings about a good balance between perimeter/3pt., mid-range and close proximity shots.

    However, when they abandon the game plan, as much as I want to, I cannot blame any lack of success on the coach. He has provided them with a system of play, at least offensively, that will maximize their performance. I believe they could incorporate more PnR along with their motion offense, but I imagine that is coming.

    But until the Pacers can maintain focus and consistenly follow the offensive game plan, JOB earns a reprieve from me.

    If he's still here at the All Star Break... I'll be shocked.

    If only the sponsor that pressured the Jax trade would step up again......

    What really sucks, for Bird to feel enough pressure to fire him, we would have to go like 2-20 or something crappy like that. If we hover around 500 he will get a pass all season long.

    If anyone knows Bird personal address maybe we can do a mail campaign. If enough people send him angry letters about JOB (not threatening) to his house I'm sure he will get the picture....right?

    Unfortunately, we won't have to worry about hovering around .500. More unfortunately, he will probably get the same pass all season long that he has for 3+ years now.

    I just hope we are patient with the few players we will have left whenever this is over, assuming the franchise survives that long, because they will all have a rough transition when it comes to becoming professional basketball players on a team with a focus on fundamentals.

    What about Posey, Mike and TJ playing so much?

    Why would that earn JOB a reprieve when it is that very game plan that is as much of a problem as anything else right now?

    I keep hoping that obie one day walks into Bird's office and tells bird that he quits on the grounds that he can't work for anyone that takes him seriously.

    I was going to say that there needs to be a "Fire Larry Bird" thread because obviously he doesn't know what he'd doing either.

    Larry's not going to fire him this season, for financial reasons. As much as I don't like it, I understand. You can't hire a new coach with a lockout looming..and we aren't going to attract a really good new one until Dun and TJ are gone..

    There is information in the post that might help you.

    Before providing an response, please ask yourself two questions:

    1. Do you even know what their game plan is or perhaps the method they are using to carry it out?

    2. Is the team following that plan from the inial tip-off to the final horn?

    I do recognize that there are individual players that may not be living up to the expectations that we have for the ideal player at a particular position. Matter of fact, with that definition, I suppose none of our players are successful. We undoubtedly disagree on who our worst performers are.

    But at this point, I am much more concerned with how the TEAM is performing and not so much how INDIVIDUAL PLAYERS are performing. After all, isn't that the most influential indicator of won-loss records?

    It is now 100%, without question, time for Jim to go, before he irreparably destroys our young players. We have made tons of roster changes during his tenure here, but yet, year after year, we see the same mistakes being made, the same flaws being exposed. Jim's system sucks, his rotations suck, and his ability to adapt sucks.

    He is exactly the coach I feared he would be from Day 1, and I can't take it anymore.
