    Im so happy with this trade (if it goes through). We managed to only give up one expirer and no picks for a future PG...great job Bird
    "So, which one of you guys is going to come in second?" - Larry Bird before the 3 point contest. He won.

    will Indy trade Dunleavy and/or Ford (even including Rush or DJones if need be) for a starting caliber PF now?

    Here's the link for trade story. Big win for Indy. Collison could be special. T.J. Ford could be gone soon too. http://es.pn/9kxM7n

    Joe, I don't know whether to laugh my butt off at your post, or be really worried that you know the words to that song.

    lol... just saying, I think it will be interesting to see how this team goes now.

    Roy/Granger/Paul/Rush/Collison

    It could turn out real good but at the same time right now how much better does it make us?

    Are we a Playoff team now...?

    Lets not be too quick with predictions. Still really weak at the 4 and 5 positions, probably the worst in the NBA in the big dept. depending on Hans and Jeff's injuries

    Let's hope the work Hibbert is doing this off season pays off. He is going to be the next Bill Walton, right?

    TJ Ford is not a valuable trading asset. TJ Ford has been stuck here for a year and a half because NO ONE wants him.
    At the trade deadline, he will be a valuable trading asset. Obviously he hasn't been up till now.

    Here's to hoping that Roy's workouts with Walton yield some big results...

    If so, look out, we're baaaaaacccckkkkkk :-)
    Back to being a playoff team that doesn't have a real hope of winning a championship? You betcha.

    While the season just got more entertaining, which means a lot more wins, let's not try and paint the picture like it's the 2000 team with a real shot at a ring.

    Still behind Miami, Orlando, Atlanta, Chicago and Boston. That's a sixth place team with a first round exit and definately a second round exit if an upset happens.

    But hey, it's still light years ahead of where we were. And if Larry can get a max player next season it puts the Pacers in the next tier, the 2As behind Miami.

    He wants out supposedly. And typically you have to make the superstar happy.

    Personally, I would have been looking to trade Paul for something really good, and keep the cheaper Collison.
    Maybe it was Collison that was causing Paul to want out, and with him gone Paul will be more willing to stay.

    If Chad Ford is reporting it is done, then I am relieved and starting to believe it is done.

    Wow this is better than any trade I could of even imagined for us. We have a very nice young nucleus now. I can't wait until preseason.

    Collison
    Price
    Stephenson
    Rush
    Granger
    George
    Rolle
    McRoberts
    Hansbrough
    Hibbert

    I love it. Finally, we can start getting excited about basketball season in this town again.

    We don't have to have roster spots. We could just buyout Ford and be done with it, and save a little more money in the process.

    Oh I hear ya.

    Believe me, with Miami stacked the way they are... Only about 2 or 3 teams in the entire LEAGUE have a legit "shot at a ring" this year.

    I am just saying we can finally expect a team we can be proud of that plays good ball and wins games and can make the playoffs and maybe shake things up a bit.

    Yeah, appreciation for a guy that maybe five people actually appreciated. What that thread is really about is appreciating the fact that we got good value out of Murphy.

    Good trade for the Pacers. Collison at most any price is a very good building block.

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    Division Champions 1955, 1956, 1988, 1989, 1990, 2002, 2003, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008
    Conference Champions 1955, 1956, 1988, 2005
    NBA Champions 1989, 1990, 2004

    At least I am more excited about the season. I was trying to be excited for Lance and Paul, but they are rookies and you can't get to excited about rookies. Now I will be looking to get tickets again to the home opener. Last year I got 2 tickets for 40 dollars and we sat 15 rows up under the basket.

    I'm stunned right now.

    I couldn't have said it better!

    I'm impressed Mr. Bird! I am glad Okafor wasn't part of the deal. Bird for sainthood is a little too drastic, but I WILL throw in a half dozen kudos to Bird. I've not been as sold on Collison as some have, but getting him is better than taking on Calderon and his terrible contract. Collison has a chance to be the PG of the future, and Calderon was nothing but an overpaid stop gap PG.

    PLUS Jimmy's crutch is gone. Thank you Bird!
