    Sham reports an interesting stat:

    Indiana were second last in rebounding percentage last year, and that was with Murphy Without him, there could be a world of hurt now.
    -----------------------------------------------------------


    Color me worried, but do we have a solid rebounder on this team now that isn't Feisty?


    Don't worry. Remember how so many of Murphy's rebounds were stolen from teammates? Well, now those guys can just get credit for the rebounds he used to take from them. Or not.

    The Pacers probably still aren't going to emphasize offensive rebounds as much as we'd like, but they'll do OK on the defensive end.
    And I won't be here to see the day
    It all dries up and blows away
    I'd hang around just to see

    Happy, Happy, Happy.
    The grown ups around here are letting down their guard. Very fun to watch.

    For the record I am so excited not because Murphy is gone, not because we are getting Posey, not because a trade is always exciting and the pacers needed to do something. I am truly excited about getting Collison
    I am too. I was a believer after watching that game where he absolutely destroyed us--the now famous "triple double game". I'm really excited to watch him play.

    You guys are harsh.

    Pro atheltes are allowed to have fun a little to, ya know.

    What, is he supposed to stop everything he is doing and log onto ESPN and PD because the Pacers are about to make a trade?

    Nah, I didn't intend it with malice.

    Just found it amusing that in the midst of discussions for a 5+ MILLION dollar paycheck he can't be bothered to quit his Madden for a few hours.

    Collison was a 40% three point shooter last season. Which is extremely impressive for a rookie point guard. That is highly unusual.

    I don't think he has anything to do with it other than saying Yes or No.

    That's why he pays his agent. If he was doing his own negotiating he'd be a fool.

    Yes you do. It's OK, you can say it.

    NO. I have never had a problem giving Bird credit when deserved. Just was thinking it wasn't Walsh but JM who got the Peja TE from NO. I wondering if Morway could have some input and dealings in getting this trade done.

    I was thinking the last couple of days about a trade involving numereous teams, and how hard it's to get one done. I just dismissed it as not feasible and then this trade happens. It took a lot to getthis trade done, and I'm guessing it took more than one FO person to get it accomplished.

    Ok guys. Now who do we target at PF???

    Could an expiring and 1st get us Milsap? He appears the odd man out in Utah with Jefferson. Very underrated IMO.
    With Boozer gone? No. Jefferson will probably play center, and Milsap likely becomes the starting PF.

    Oh I am completely aware of that.

    I am JUST saying... If I were in his position, I would probably have my mind on things other than Madden.

    Again, I just found it ironic... Not trying to bury the guy.

    He just seems to have his mind on lots of things NOT the Pacers pretty much... All the time it seems.

    I finally understand it all now.

    The whole hansbourgh vertigo thing has been a scam. Bird has had him secretly locked into a gym shooting thousands of 3s a day so they could pull this trade off.

    Tyler must finally of shown he can stroke the three at the rate of murphy to make him expendable.

    An entire offseason of a team drafting the guys I singled out, and trading for the guy I wanted. I have no idea how to control myself.

    I knew I had defended Bird on here for a reason ....

    Great! I'll have a double-double!
    Actually, you'll have fewer double doubles but you'll be able to perform defensive driving on the way home.

    This is crazy.For the past week we have been talking about adding Calderon and his crappy contract and out of the blue we add Collison.I love the deal, I'm very high on him, for the first time in a long time we have a pg who can get us easy baskets,If I'm Brandon Rush I would be very happy with this trade as I would think he is really going to benefit.This is a very low risk deal for us with possibly very high returns.This deal puts us in a great position going forward we still have our draft picks and a ton of cap space where we can still target Hortford.Really we are set at pretty much every position we still need a starting powerforward and a backup center but we are in great shape going forward.A absolute steal for us.

    I understand what you are saying.

    However, having a few freinds who are lucky enough to have agents, when they actually get work they said they spend as little time thinking about that stuff as possible. It not they just drive themself crazy sitting by their phone/email waiting for the phone to ring.

    As for the COD comment, I actually laughed out loud. I am just getting back into video gaming, but I have heard that is a good game.

    Not 100% thrilled with Collison, but I will say this:

    -Our defense just got a LOT better...a LOT. Collison might be top 5 for point guards.

    -I like Posey, if he stays. The first thing I think of is that he's very physical.




    But really, Troy Murphy is gone!!!!!!!!! Congrats to Troy on playing in his home area.

    This is the happiest day I've had as a Pacers fan in years!

    I feel the same way, except for peeing myself. I wanted us to draft George after I watched his video of his pre draft workout. I have wanted Collison ever since it was anounced that New Orleans might trade him. I admit I didn't know much about Lnce or Magnum, though.
