    My heart wants to vote for Tins, but it's just not fair.

    Really, it comes down to Travis, AJ, and Kenny Anderson for me.

    Travis gets the nod even though I like him way more than the other two.

    Travis and AJ. I don't want to think about either of them so I won't choose.
    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

    Speaking of Tinsley, I am beginning to think that the only willing trade parner for him may be the Falcons, for Michael Vick....

    Travis Diener may not be the best STARTING guard but when he comes off the bench there is a much better flow to the offense.
    The best exercise of the human heart is reaching down and picking someone else up.

    Did Kevin Ollie and Fred Jones not start enough to make the list?

    Fred Jones started only 19 games over 4 years and the most he started in one season is 14 and kevin Ollie did not start during his season

    Ollie actually started a good amount for the Timberwolves.

    Sarunas may have only started 16 games, but he played significant minutes for us for a while.

    Why has Kenny Anderson received so many votes? I thought he did a nice job for the Pacers when he was here. JMO though.

    I think Sarunas is by far the worst. The guy made no impact. Maybe I say him because he had hype and expectations were higher for him compared to say Travis Diener. I acutally like Diener coming off the bench.

    I think the low talent level has driven Diener's value up ala Beno Udrih for the Kings.

    I don't understand the Kenny Anderson votes either. He was definitely better than AJ, but we did catch him at the very end of his career.

    The only thing I can figure is that the Kenny Anderson voters are closet Jamaal Tinsley fans. Come on out... its okay.

    I mean, we caught him at the tail end of his career. Kenny Anderson was better before we got him obviously.

    I don't really consider Travis Diener a full time starter for no good reason except I'm stubborn. I don't consider Kenny Anderson in that season better than AJ. In retrospect, what a weird pickup that was - Kenny Anderson.

    Sarunas was a horrible defender. He couldn't handle even the slightest pressure bringing the ball up the court. He might have had good court vision, if he managed to make past the half court line, but he was never used that way as a Pacer, probably because of the shot clock or JO demanding the ball... or something.

    At any rate, it was a total disaster and he sucked bad, either because he was misued or he just was not good enough to handle NBA level defense. Probably a combination of the two. His rabid fans from Europe and Israel who constantly compared him to Michael Jordan didn't help him much either.

    That being said, I still almost voted for Tinsley.
