The sooner, the better.
The sooner, the better.
He's such an idiot and doesn't know how to coach and be fair.
He benches good, young players (Tyler) for old worn out players who can't even play the position (James).
It will be happening if he keeps playing these rotations and refuses to play AJ Price he will continue to lose.
Against teams like Utah and Chicago, the Pacers need Tyler. The rest of our bigs might as well be women.
Kravitz: why is Roys numbers down this year?
Bird: Well its not Lance stealing his rebounds this year.
Wouldn't hurt my feelings.
It would be perfect if we fire Jim during this season and we make the playoffs under the new coach.
We've got some good assistants who could probably get the job done. Especially Dan Burke. He's been here for years and knows defense and probably offense.
This is really getting to be a joke. What exactly did Tyler do to be put in the doghouse? Posey was wrecked tonight because he is playing out of position. Who thinks Posey can guard Carlos Boozer?
I'm glad I continue to get converts to the AJ Price bandwagon
Asking JOB to adjust to different teams against certain players..not going to happen very often.
But honestly, it doesn't matter what JOB does, if Granger and Hibbert continue to play poorly, we won't win.
What GOOD could this possibly do right NOW?
Does he not get any credit for getting this years team to play good defense
Well done, James Posey.
Jim deserves credit and criticism. However, a thread calling for his head after twenty-three games is somewhat ridiculous. It would be a disaster if the Pacers removed O'Brien at this juncture. Though, I will admit, I would be intrigued by who the Pacers would replace him with. Perhaps C.K.? Either way -- bad idea.
Be careful what you wish for.

Okay, so we fire Jim O'Brien. Now, let's address the big picture. Shall we?  Who will coach the Pacers in the here and now?  Can the Pacers mentally and physically adjust to a new system before season end?  Is J.O.B.'s damage snow-balled because he was re-leased rather than denied a re-newal?
Ask Jerry Jones and his Dallas Cowboys what good it does to wait so long to fire the coach.
I don't think we will get any coach to sign for the rest of the year, if you fire Jim his assistant will be the coach and I am OK with that as long as he keeps it simple, this is not rocket science, a coach that could keep a less complicated offense could do wonders with this team, a coach who's priority is not to shoot threes at any cost.
I think Jim already burned every single bridge with this team and IS TIME FOR HIM TO GO.
You're right 2 out of 3 isn't bad. Then again, their wins were against horrible teams like the Skins and the Bills. Let's be honest. You can fire Jim O'Brien and hire the right coach. OR You can fire Jim O'Brien and unleash a grease fire. Which is more likely?
Do you really think the players can mentally and physically adjust to a new system and finish with a better record this season? Do you really think a better alternative is available in the here and now? If so, who? Mike Brown?
