    I can't believe this.

    I know it is mostly post-trade euphoria...

    But we have seriously positioned ourselves to be a VERY good team in a short period of time.

    Our roster as it stands now reminds me of the Hawks a few years ago. They were a perennial loser and they make moves to get a young, athletic and high potential roster in place... They went from a bottom feeder to a EC contender.

    I really think we've turned a corner!

    Troy has been "languishing" in Indiana? I do not think that word means what nj.com thinks it means...

    well if I had any uncertainty on whether or not I wanted to buy league pass this year (there wasn't really), it's definitely gone now!

    This is the most excited I have been about a trade, draft pick, signing, since the Pacers acquired brad miller and Ron Artest for jalen Rose

    I am in complete shock and disbelief at the moment. I feel an odd thoughts coming on if this actually gets completed. One that is filled with ice cream, cake & pie and any other sweet delectible substance you can find.

    People if this is true & I'm not trying to be filled with hyperbole here, but if this is true IMO this is the day we changed the franchise & by change I mean change for the much much better.
    I'M GOING TO RUN THROUGH A WALL!!!!

    It's been a rough couple weeks on PD, lots of disagreement and dissension...I just want to say..

    GOD BLESS US...EVERYONE!!!

    If he plays well there, why not? A decent PG is worth a lot more than a decent SG, even if we end up not keeping him. At worst you get a solid combo guard.

    He's a rookie, you aren't going to destroy him by having him try something this year.

    So am I the only one that thinks keeping TJ's EXPIRING contract until the deadline is a better idea than waiving him?

    Not sure is anyone said this already but, hopefully we will buy out posey and sign Magnum if this deal gets done, I wouldn't mind that, not knocking Collisons potential but I think that George Hill would have fit better with the players that we currently have on our team but I guess we will see how this turns out... Good Luck Collison..
    George Hill is not a PG. COllison. Go look at his last four games of the season alone and you will have to change into clean boxers.

    Why aren't we all upset? We just traded away our most valuable player during the O'Brien era. What is poor Jim to do without a stretch 4?

    Unfortunately, the answer will inevitably be Granger at the stretch 4 with alarming frequency, Posey at the 3, and McRoberts and Rolle rotating behind Danny due to second string matchups.

    But, at least Collison will learn how to dribble penetrate and kick out to the perimeter, and will also learn to take 3's earlier in the shot clock...

    I am happy that one of O'B's crutches have been removed, but, unfortunately, he has another option besides McRoberts hoisting up a high volume of 3's with the mindset of Reggie Miller or Larry Bird.

    Uncle Buck is right, though. O'B now has a guard who is capable of initiating a passing oriented motion offense. It remains to be seen if a leopard can, indeed, change its spots after all.

    Why? We need both a roster spot and some salary space to sign Rolle, which seems like a good idea. Getting TJ out of the way removes some disgruntlement from the locker room.

    Yep, the $ cost is not good if we plainly waive him, but the floor advantage is there.

    How about a blue one and a gold one:



    The poster "pacertom" since this forum began (and before!). I changed my name here to "Slick Pinkham" in honor of the imaginary player That Bobby "Slick" Leonard picked late in the 1971 ABA draft (true story!)

    IMO, YES.
    Lighting & Thunder.
    The wing is crowded & this is Lance's best opportunity to get on the floor.
    Price IMO will need more time & will lack quickness/ confidence in the first half. This allows AJ to pace himself & get right.

    I see us trying to move Posey at the deadline to a contender. He has value to a top-tier team (see Bos championship run in '09). Dunleavy too could/ will be available, but I think moving Posey would be our best case.

    LOVE THE DEAL!!!

    Depends. TJ is scheduled to make $8.5 million this year. Most contracts are bought out in the 90% area. That would be $850,000. If we can buy him out for about $350,000 or so we would have enough to sign Rolle.

    HOLY *****!

    If you'd told me 2.5 years ago that we'd have Roy Hibbert, Brandon Rush, and Darren Collison on our roster, I'd say you were bat **** crazy. Wow.

    Now we just need to get rid of our asshat coach, and we'll be in business.

    No, payback would be if they actually had to take Murphy. But then, they took Peja, I guess that's bad enough.

    [edit] ****, I guess this means I need to start watching the Pacers again. Jimmy damn well better change his offense.
