I'm tired of this junk. Bird expects to make the playoffs this year? Then i read reports about how the Pacers plan to let JOB go after the season? No assistants suitable to take over for O'Brien? Ok Larry. You've built this team. You've let the mess that is Jim O'Brien run it.. no where. It's time for you to back this playoff/3 year plan talk up. Why have a lame duck coach for the second half of the season? A season that you expect to end in the playoffs. If JOB is gone next year, why cant he be gone now? Bird needs to step up. I dont care if he's not coming back next year or not. But this is what Bird built. It's time he comes out of the cozy confines of the luxury offices in conseco and coaches this team. You want them in the playoffs, coach them to the playoffs. Because they are not getting to the playoffs with Jim O'Brien at the wheel.
So tired of this ****.
