Love this board because there are so many areas for healthy debate. I have not been a Pacers fan long enough to appreciate the old-timers like others can, but even if Foster does not get his jersy retired, many could argue that he is worthy. In an earlier post, I mentioned how Jeff is creeping up the all-time lists. He will likely finish as the all-time leader in offensive rebounds, is moving up in total rebounds, I think he is #3 in total games, in the top 10 in steals. He's missed a bunch of games, and has had his minutes purposely limited (to conserve his back) during several of the past seasons even when healthy. So his numbers defensively would be even higher, but for things somewhat out of his control. Even so, many have brought up the intangibles that he provides. Hard to compare him in that area, but this is a part of his game.
Somewhat disconcerting to me though is the fact that he is listed as day-to-day as of yesterday, he was not on the bench in a suit or otherwise.
