    Maybe the Pacers are going to let the Hornets take a look at Ford for a possible trade for West. West is out resting his wrist tonight just in case of a trade. Hornets need a PG and can shed Wests next years thus saving them mil, and the Pacers need a big. Salaries match almost perfectly. Pacers can throw in Stephenson as a sweetner in a 2 for 1 trade to get the roster down to 15.

    See what one can see if they just choose to read between the lines of the article?

    I see what one can see if they are flat out dreaming. That's an absurdly one-sided trade.

    Can't we just wait it out for one preseason game before we freak out?

    We still have people saying that when Tinsley was exiled it wasn't right and that JOB should have used all his options.

    Why shouldn't TJ get some time in preseason?

    If and only if JOB then benches DC and AJ in favor of a TJ who went 5-20 and had 17 turnovers, you can all jump on his rear. Until then, let them look at the team in regards to the new rotation and changes (yes, there are changes) in playing style.

    Sheesh.
    There is a big difference between the Tinsley situation and this situation. When Tinsley was on the team he was the best PG on the team without question. TJ on the other hand may only be the third best PG on the team. I don't think anyone will argue that TJ shouldn't play in preseason, and it is probably a good idea to make him the primary back-up for a couple of games to get him back up to speed. The problem comes is if it continues beyond just a couple of games.

    you mean, back up PG battle, right? There is no battle for starting PG.

    Collison is the guy, and that's not really up for debate.

    Our team [coach] is so messed up...putting a player that nobody likes who doesn't fit in, who wants out of Indy, who is overpaid (T.J. Ford), to take the place of a player that has played the best out of anyone in all the preseason games that we've played in so far (A.J. Price)......Hopefully T.J. plays horribly and he'll go back to being benched the rest of the season. I mean sure it would be nice to showcase him and get him traded ASAP, but if no trade has occurred with him in it by now, then I really doubt we'll be finding one anytime soon. Play A.J.

    Just...no...

    TJ's better at passing to the other team. And his little free throw jumper is better.

    And playing TJ and DC together that's a nightmare right there. (yes, let's play two tiny ball dominant PGs who aren't completely comfortable in the system..together)

    TJ seems like a good person. And maybe in a different system he'd pass better and make better decisions with the ball (although..I think he's just a poor decision maker, personally) And I wish him well. I just don't want to watch him play any longer.

    Why "just no"

    What have you seen to think AJ is a better passer than TJ? The asist numbers dont say that?

    I have dreamed that dream before

    although I will say on the Hornets board on realgm, they are about 50-50 on West

    Obie told TJ he'd get a fair shot to earn a spot in the rotation behind DC, this is it. No more, no less. He's just keeping his word, I believe.
    And I can most certainly respect that... I may not like seeing TJ out on the floor as opposed to AJ .. but it doesn't bother me that JOB is keeping his promise to give TJ a fair shake at least .. that is admirable... as I said I can respect that . .. and by all means , TJ deserves a chance to earn his minutes...

    And to be honest ... IF..... and this is a big IF .....


    IF TJ comes out this season and plays like an all star , then by all means I will not complain ... if he actually EARNS his PT.. and beats AJ out..

    But I really don't see that happening... TJ is a good guy .. I just don't think this team is the right fit for him ..

    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.

    So you expect TJ to be the same guy he was before the concussion, Foster to be the same guy before getting old and Dunleavy to be the same guy before the surgery?............ can we say Championship

    Well, then, at least TJ shouldn't have any problem beating out AJ, who will never be the same as he was before his knee injury, as we can tell from his preseason play.

    JOB is been saying that AJ is been the best player so far, so what is he going to do now? sit him on the bench

    Sure, since no player can come back from an injury as good as he was before, that must mean AJ really isn't the best player so far.

    Now I'm going to have to pay overtime, dang it

    You are comparing a guy that is only 24 years old with guys that are over 30 years old and one that has a genetic problem with his spinal cord?

    How is he going to be the same before the concussion if his issue is genetic?

    Maybe a western conference team wants to see how TJ fares against the Hornets, even though it is still preseason. Who knows, CP3 might be on the court at times when TJ is played, and that might give another team an idea about where TJ currently would stack up as a combo guard in the western conference.

    We can at least hope, can't we?

    Did you type that with a straight face? I had a pretty good laugh after the first sentence.

    Once AJ had a bad game, I figured TJ would get a shot.
    Welcome to Pacers Digest! New around here? Here are three tips for making the forum a great place to talk about Pacers basketball.

    • Log in. Even if you want to read instead of post, it's helpful because it lets you:
    • Change your signature options. You can hide all signatures by choosing "Settings" (top right) then "General Settings" (middle left) and unchecking the box "Show Signatures" (in the "Thread Display Options" area).
    • Create an ignore list. I know it may seem unneighborly. But you're here to talk about the Pacers, not argue with someone who's just looking for an argument. Most of the regular users on here make use (at least occasionally) of the "Ignore" feature. Just go to "Settings" -> "Edit Ignore List" and add the names.

    Enjoy your time at PD!
