    Default Tomorrow's the day, Larry

    Five day break until the next game. This is the perfect time to fire JOB and promote one of the assistants for the remainder of the season. Fail to do so, and you risk not only alienating the fans that have stuck around, but you also risk JOB completely and irrereversibly destroying the young talent you brought in, all while once again failing to make the playoffs anyway.

    It's time.

    Worst case scenario, lets just sign Latrell Sprewell to a 10 day contract.

    Shade, you've had zero luck getting the Fever to fire their coach. Makes me think you'll have equal luck with this.

    Hell, I'd take Dunn over O'Brien at this point.

    While it seems unlikely, I sure hope you're right.

    I am hoping to waking tomorrow to the headline "Jim O'Brien officially fired by Pacers. (Frank Vogel/Mike Brown ) to take over"

    ....A man can dream...
    Stop quoting people I have on ignore!

    If O'Brien gets fired tomorrow, it will be the start of a wonderful new year

    If something like that were to happen tomorrow I would renew my season tickets for the next five years, kiss Larry Bird on the cheek, go streaking, buy season tickets for my whole family, hug everyone in Conseco, join in on A55, buy 5 Pacers jerseys, and do all kinds of ridiculous things spending money on the PS&E.

    Larry, I hope you are reading this.

    Well both of them. Larry needs to do his job in making moves that gets butts in the seats and wins games. He's not doing that keeping this goon idiot around.

    What if the replacement does everything that JOB did. Literally. Horrible rotation, horrible coach. That would be really funny and ironic. I would laugh. Then cry.

    I hope nobody is getting their hopes up. Bird seems perfectly content to go down with the ship.

    And make no mistake, this ship is sinking very quickly.

    Yeah I think Larry Bird has hitched his wagon to Jim O'Brien. He'll let him try to turn it around and give him an extension, or they'll both walk away after the season is over

    Larry doesn't want to fire JOB because he would be 0-2 in the coaching department. He would have to admit that he has no real ability or insight in hiring a coach because both his choices had to be fired.

    Larry would prefer just to let JOB finish his season and then not rehire him.. This way there is no big media frenzy and Jim just disappears during the summer.

    Melodrama abound on this board. Nothing is going to happen. We all know that, and if you don't, then you need to come to grips with reality. Obie will be here through the rest of the season. None of us like it, but it is what it is. I guarantee you Bird and company recognize the situation and are well aware of our feelings on the matter. The best we can do is hope for TPTB to dictate minutes for certain players.

    You should probably keep dreaming... just because I don't think it'll happen by tomorrow morning. However, perhaps we should start sending letters, posts, emails, etc. (Hell, use false names/locations so it seems to be from more fans). I wouldn't mind a demonstration or chants, either. I'd participate but I'll be 900+ miles away by the next game.

    Dude, most NBA coaches eventually get fired. It's pretty normal.
    Welcome to Pacers Digest! New around here? Here are three tips for making the forum a great place to talk about Pacers basketball.

    • Log in. Even if you want to read instead of post, it's helpful because it lets you:
    • Change your signature options. You can hide all signatures by choosing "Settings" (top right) then "General Settings" (middle left) and unchecking the box "Show Signatures" (in the "Thread Display Options" area).
    • Create an ignore list. I know it may seem unneighborly. But you're here to talk about the Pacers, not argue with someone who's just looking for an argument. Most of the regular users on here make use (at least occasionally) of the "Ignore" feature. Just go to "Settings" -> "Edit Ignore List" and add the names.

    Enjoy your time at PD!

    Kravitz will have an article out aligned with this thread if nothing is done and this continues.

    He's probably online right now taking notes...

    based on the keys to the game pregame video of frank vogel he sounds completely different from what stupid jim says

    this sounds like his own opinion

    frank talked about driving towards the basket and feeding big men in the post

    he mentions NOTHING about spacing the floor

    he talked about "OUR YOUNG GUYS" are hungry for a win

    compared to other coaches, frank is young himself hes only 37

    Doubtful. The Colts winning today is the best thing that could have happened to Jim.

    Nobody (including Kravitz, who is much better than most give him credit for) cares for at least another whole week.

    Boy, that's a major downer. It's a shame the Colts won and the Jags lost....
