    That's going to rankle the "shoulda been" MVP.....

    Actually, if it's scoring you want, then Artest would be on the floor. Not a lineup for significant minutes, but a lineup that could run and produce points.

    C - JO
    PF - Ron
    SF - SJax
    SG - Reggie
    PG - Tinsley

    I'm wondering if Ron, at 6'7", could be a PF? Barkley wasn't much stronger than Ron.

    And contrary to Conrad's company line, I think SG has been a position of concern since the 2000 Finals, but I still say Reggie should have moved to the bench when that team broke up.
    Why do the things that we treasure most, slip away in time
    Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
    Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?
    Till we fall away in our own darkness, a stranger to our own hearts
    And life itself, rushing over me
    Life itself, the wind in black elms,
    Life itself in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you

    In theory sure Ron could play at the 4 but...

    I wouldn't put Ron inside at the 4 because he is the leagues best perimeter defender. It would be a rare match up where he would be as effective defensively on the power forward rather than the swing player.

    Ron is not the rebounder Barkley was either.

    "They could turn out to be only innocent mathematicians, I suppose," muttered Woevre's section officer, de Decker.

    "'Only.'" Woevre was amused. "Someday you'll explain to me how that's possible. Seeing that, on the face of it, all mathematics leads, doesn't it, sooner or later, to some kind of human suffering."

    Fine points... I was just thinking about that idea off the top of my head.

    We played Artest at the 4 against Kenyon Martin for a while.

    He matches up with Kenyon great... much better than he did against KVH.
    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!

    if fred backs up the 2, jackson the 3, then we are good
    Don't ask Marvin Harrison what he did during the bye week. "Batman never told where the Bat Cave is," he explained.

    As thin as we are at power forward I wouldn't be surprised to see that line up in brief stretches either. I just don't think it would be ideal in most cases.

    They didn't "sign" Jackson to back-up a guy that plays 40 minutes a game.
    No, but they traded a guy who did for him.
