    Reading this thread was great entertainment.

    I love how pessimism is deemed to be "cool" or "realism"

    Well done, PP.

    Bird deserves the credit. hope he can stay around another year or two. this team should continue to win 50 with additional experience, and good coaching.

    GO PACERS!!!

    There must have been some crazy **** going on at the time. I'm one of the biggest Bird supporters around, and even I was confused.

    you hit the nail on the head. some crazy bull about how Legend needed to be let go. it was neutral on here with Bird at that time. but still some strong criticism directed at Legend.

    I think the title says it all. was hoping to get more Bird critcs on this thread but they never show up when you want em to. there were a few who manned up. most did not even deem it worthy of commenting.

    Criticism wasnt for Bird it was your crazy plan. I mean Dunleavy 6m a year Hans 8m year AJ Price 4m J-mac+ Landry for 11m a year WTF god no. Most of thoes guys arent worth 1/3 of what you wanted to givem.


    sorry but it was ridiculous IMO glad the FO didn't do

    and there was 0 way we were getting EJ for Granger

    your whole "plan" was just not realistic.


    Very few wanted Bird gone I just didnt get the point of the weird thread.

    BS. the criticsm wass directed at Legend and i started this thread to attract the bird critics but some are too spineless. work on your attn span. i made it clear those were just some of my ideas and had nothing to do with the fact Legend would win exec.

    dont be a horses *** cause normally i repsect your opinion. except regarding brandon rush as a consistent 3 point threat.. LMFAO

    I mean He might not go get anyone which is fine but saying Landry "is solidifying the front court roation" is just laughable


    Taking personal cuts is not necessary especially when digging up threads from this far back...



    I know you vehemently despise Dunleavy but the dude is a good backup sf. Coach Thibbs over there in Chi-town must agree with me. Duns getting paid 3M. not too far off from his adjusted value 3 seasons ago.




    Come on, man...




    *apologize to the mods

    Disingenuous...!

    I'm still around, still of the same opinion.

    37 wins and 1 playoff win doesn't change the facts. Still a deeply flawed roster. Still not anywhere close to being able to compete for anything of note. Still needing 2 guys better than anyone on this roster to even be fringe contenders.

    Lucky that the East was epically bad this year.
