    I think TJ's playing chicken, thinking that the Pacers will just waive him outright - which they might.

    Not even a "Hey, I'll take your crap if you take mine." kind of thing? I just hate getting nothing for an expiring contract.

    So how long before Collison can't figure out JOB's offense, gets frustrated, gets benched, and everyone kills Bird for trading for him?

    Hopefully never, but you know how things go around here...

    Am I the only person at work who can not focus on work right now?

    I have not been this happy since 2000. I mean I loved getting rid of O'Neal but at the time I wasn't sure about what we got back although I had hopes for Roy.

    But this, this trade makes me so d@mn happy I can't see straight.

    Not only did we unload Troy Murphy in the deal but we landed a young point guard who I think will be good to great in the long run.

    If you would have told me that we traded Troy Murphy for James Posey I would have probably told you that was the best we could do, but we got Collison in the deal???? Are you kidding me.

    Thank you Chris Paul for demanding that trade. I have a feeling that trading off Collison was one of their way's of saying "your our guy".

    Danny at the 4? I don't care. I mean I don't like it but I know who our coach is and I know he is going to use him there so if my choice is Mike Dunleavy at the 3 and Danny at the 4 with the other young guys coming in off of the bench over Troy Murphy at the 4 and 5 then I will gladly take Mike & Danny.

    My heart is racing.

    This is surreal to me.

    Are you sure the loud thunder wasn't the mass celebrations in the streets of Indy when news of this broke?
    Well, I'm about 50+ miles south of Indy, but judging by this thread it could have been.

    I'm assuming that if we waive him that he'll get his full $8.5 mil?

    Regardless, the net effect ( at least on the # of Players on the roster ) is the same in a buy-out situation compared to being waived?

    If Ford is gone ( one way or another ), are we down to 15?

    Does that include the option to sign Rolle ( as in, we are down to 14 and can now sign Rolle )?

    or

    Is it 15 ( not including Rolle )?

    This is David West, he is the Honey Badger, West just doesn't give a *****....he's pretty bad *ss cuz he has no regard for any other Player or Team whatsoever.

    we would only be interested in a star player or another expiring contract.

    we wouldn't want to lock up a long term 8.5 million salary base deal for x years.

    another expiring would be good but would we really want that or could we save more money via buyout?

    No way. If we were buying anyone just to open up a roster spot for Rolle, it would either be SJones on the low end or TJFord on the high end.

    I think folks overlook Posey. He is a very serviceable player. His fit is probably much better for the Pacers than for New Orleans. He is able to hit the open 3, which JOB will like, and he also plays pretty decent defense, which everyone will like.

    I know, right?!?!

    And it's not even for the typical Pacer-fan reasons... Mainly shock and horror and utter disbelief at the stupidity we have been subjected to.

    It's a... GOOD day to be a Pacers fan!

    You're right...he's a SG/SF. Before signing with the Hornets, Posey was the good luck charm for Teams. When he went to Miami, the Heat won a Championship. When he went to the Celtics, they won a Championship. Of course, I guess that trading for Shaq ( for the Heat ) and then the Celtics trading for KG/Allen makes a huge difference.

    If he still has some gas in his tank...my guess is that JO'B will play Posey ( specifically a Vet that can still hit the 3pt shot and shows some inkling for perimeter defense ) behind Granger/Dunleavy/BRush in the SG/SF rotation.

    I always wanted Posey on the Pacers....too bad it's 3 or 4 years too late.
    My guess is that this sets the Pacers up to deal Dunleavy, with Posey taking his spot in the rotation, if any interest is out there for Dunleavy (probably not from the Clippers ).

    Dont get too excited guys. This has happened to us plenty of times before. We thought we got rid of Tinsley to Orlando, then Ford to Bobcats...

    I want it to happen but wont get excited till its all over
    "So, which one of you guys is going to come in second?" - Larry Bird before the 3 point contest. He won.

    Larry Bird says I told ya'll I could do it.

    I know Posey isn't quite Byron Scott, but he has won before. Can he be a vet leader in the locker room? I'm on cloud 9 right now.

    I wish I would never have seen this as now I am going to crash like the hendinburgh when this doesn't happen.

    If this does happen I will nominate Larry Bird for Sainthood.

    I think TJ's playing chicken, thinking that the Pacers will just waive him outright - which they might.
    A point, TJ wasn't interested in a buyout when he thought he would be starting, now he might change his tune.

    I am so with you man. This is maybe the best day I can remember since the 2000 finals. Everything bad I have ever said about Larry, I totally take back. Larry Bird - GM of the year.

    They turned Troy freakin Murphy, Murph the Matador, the worst defensive forward in the history of the NBA into Collison... wow. Epic.

    I'm at work and can't even focus on my job lol. The people here must think I'm crazy with me walking around with a stupid grin on my face like it's Xmas morning!
