    And some of us have (had) no clue what any of that meant. I thought "Star Wars" for Paul (C3PO)

    Anyone else not like referring to Darren Collison as DC. DC is Derrick Coleman in my mind
    I wouldn't know Derrick Coleman if he came up and asked for my autograph.

    Darren Collison can be DC. Derrick Coleman can be a has been.

    Love it, I'm on board.

    I'd like to advocate calling AJ Price, "Juice" too. That's what Roy calls him in his tweets.

    Could go with the whole Star Wars theme:

    Roy... Chewy

    DC2... R2

    DG3... Solo

    PG... Luke?

    ...

    So would that make BRush or Lance Annakin?

    Indy's Hole at the Four: Second-year power forward Tyler Hansbrough has still not been fully cleared by doctors for the Indiana Pacers. Hansbrough has been out since December with inner ear issues causing vertigo. Pacers' President Larry Bird told Mike Wells of the Indianapolis Star he's not sure exactly when Hansbrough will be cleared, but intimated it could be soon.

    "When they release him to go, he'll go," Bird said. "I don't know when that's going to happen. I know he's got another meeting with his doctors coming up.

    "He's in top condition. I don't worry about Tyler as far as being in shape."

    It's extremely important to the Pacers that the 13th pick in the 2009 NBA Draft be able to play, because if not they have a gaping hole in their roster at the power forward position. They traded starter Troy Murphy a couple weeks back to the New Jersey Nets in a deal netting them point guard Darren Collison and wing James Posey – a deal they had to make with all that Collison can bring – but the four position is weak.

    With Murphy in Jersey and Hansbrough injured, the only other player listed on the roster as a four is Josh McRoberts, someone who to this point in his career has played solid in minimal minutes but doesn't look to be a NBA starter. The Pacers could slide veteran centers Jeff Foster or even Solomon Jones into that spot and start Roy Hibbert at center, but that's hardly ideal. Conversely the team could go small, putting All-Star Danny Granger in that spot, but that is something they would rather avoid.

    With 15 players currently under contract (for $64.4 million) for the 2010-11 season (two contracts are not fully guaranteed), the Pacers are somewhat committed to this roster. Hansbrough being healthy is key, because without him they are going to have to scramble and play at least one – and probably multiple – players out of position.

    Hansbrough played in only 29 games his rookie season, averaging 8.5 points and 4.8 rebounds in 17.6 minutes while shooting 36% from the field. His minutes and production had been trending steadily upward before the December injury, when he posted back-to-back double-doubles. He tried to play four more games after missing seven, but had to shut it down for the season.

    The Pacers will also have to make a decision regarding the third year of his rookie scale contract by the end of October – they hold a team option for $2.1 million. It's likely they pick this up.

    Key word: "could"

    So possibly, Tyler could possibly NOT be activated soon.

    Thanks Mike Wells again for bringing more lack of clarity in your reporting and telling us nothing new.

    God, I miss Mark Montieth.

    Larry is not coming back, he didn't have a meeting with Orlando for not reason, yeah he is coming back to the NBA but not to the Pacers, the notion that he is a taking a year off and then come back is absurd.

    I don't care exactly when he is activated. i just want to hear that these issues are no longer a problem for him--his vertigo and headaches are gone.

    It is hard to understand from this report whether he has residual issues or whether the docs just set a timetable way back that they are going to adhere to. For some reason they just don't say. I would guess it has more to do with ticket sales than privacy rights which to me suggests he still has issues.

    Plumlee reminds me of a young Dale Davis. Good rebounding and he contests shots well on defense and his offensive game is very raw just like DD's was coming out of college.

    I still dont understand why NO didnt take him. They have no back up to CP3 and even though we dont like Ford, he has been extreemly professional, in my opinion, throught this ordeal
    Well, they did sign Mustafa Shakur today.

    That's it, I'm applying for Mike Wells job. He knows less than me, I think. If I worked even just part time for half of his salary ... imagine what I could know.

    They save some money, and I get a part time job. Everyone wins.

    Quick blurbs from the Roy interview with Dan Dakich on 1070 the fan from 9/7.

    http://www.1070thefan.com/podcast/Ep....aspx?PID=1161

    Roy says:

    - McRoberts benched 310 three times, pretty good for a basketball player type build.

    - Roy called DC2 (Darren Collison) right after the trade and the first thing DC2 asked him was - what can we do to get better defensively as a team?

    Listening to Roy, it give syou a good feeling about the leadership of this team moving forward. Along with DC2s apparent ability in this department, too, it makes me very optmistic.

    I mean seriously, no disrespect to Mustafa, (cant say this without giggling)

    but TJ Ford is a proven PG, I still cant believe he doesnt get more love. He is not as bad as he ahs been made to look here, and has been very professional

    Hello is this MJ? Give us Henderson Nzar and a first rounder forTJ and Brandon

    He's a terrible decision maker, and in this offense that can kill you. (And it's not a good thing for a PG.)

    Screw the additional 1st rounder....I'd settle for Henderson+Nazr for TJ+Brandon+Solo at this point.
    Ash from Army of Darkness: Good...Bad...I'm the guy with the gun.

    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.

    Yep, that trade would be fine even w/o a 1st. It then opens up a roster spot for Rolle gets rid of Ford and Doobie Rush. Get on board this time MJ!
