    It hurts me moving forward, but it sure as hell isn't my fault.
    but when the 3 people involved in the crash all blame each other it is hard to tell who fault the crash really was.

    That's not a fair statement to make.

    Michael Heisley of Memphis publicly discussed the trade before it was finalized. He then blamed the Pacers when it didn't go through as an attempt to cover for himself.

    The only aspect of the trade that was divulged was from the Memphis perspective.

    We still don't know what players from NO were involved or what Pacer players were headed to NO. That's because NO and the Pacers acted properly and did not publicly discuss a non finalized trade.

    The Pacers only addressed the trade at all because they were being blamed pubicly by Heisley and the Indy press for missing the deadline. They were put in an awkward position by an inept Memphis owner and a local Indy press that didn't double check the story before tweeting.

    Until you, you know, examine the facts of the incident and form a conclusion based upon the evidence you have.

    In this case, what little we do have points to the other guys, not the Pacers. At worst you can say it's still unclear who's fault it was, but otherwise if you're going to point a finger, the Pacers would be 3rd in line (or 4th if you believe the Mark Cuban conspiracy).

    Still, as I see Mayo blowing up in the playoffs....it hurts knowing that he was a so close to being a Pacer. Infact I find myself rooting for Mayo, Zbo, Conley and Memphis. But I know the better they do the more Mayo become unobtainable for us. Very bitter sweet.

    yes, it is too bad the trade didn't go through. mayo is a nice player that fit a pacer need. the fact that bird was trying to get him at the trade deadline, and now he is doing well in the playoffs says that bird knows what he is doing.

    but the trade didn't go through. and obsessing on what could have been is silly. there are lots of guys out there that could be just as good a fit as mayo. dwade he is not. nor will not getting mayo kill the pacer chances of being a ECF team.

    pacers biggest need is still an athletic PF. until they get one, they will continue to be a sub 500 team. it would be better to worry about the next trade rather than the last almost trade. sitting around about what might have been is stupid. and most important it is unproductive.

    All signs point to us making a run at Oj this off season soooo it looks like its talking about a future trade that will be more expensive in the end.

    not to be disagreeable, but what signs are you talking about. the only signs i've read about from the pacers is bird saying the pacers need an athletic big and a guy that can get his own shot.

    all the rest has been speculation by us jr. GM's trying to make up scenario's to get our favorite player traded to the pacers. yes, the pacers need to get some new players, but that is all.

    at the time of the OJ/McBobs/whoever trade, OJ looked more like a target of opportunity, that didn't work out, rather than a long term plan.

    Yes he can.

    Watch his rookie year. He was a beast and really looked like a superstar in the making.

    I still think he has that ability, but needs a new team to do it with like Indiana.

    Where can we 'watch his rookie year' ? Was it made into a movie (green) ?

    God I really hope we are able to get Mayo this off season and have a 3 man rotation of Mayo, Granger, George.


    Love the highlights. All I have seen in these play offs is a guy if given the chance can be the go to guy on a team.

    I do think at a minimum it is going to take Tyler and our 1st and I'm O.K. with that. In that case I would try to resign McBob to be our back up PF.

    We will still have enough money to go get a PF if we can find one. Landry, West, Nene. Or try to pursue another trade to get someone else

    I cant stand thinking about trades that dont happen... like this one. Especially when its as one sided as this one was. It makes think of what we could have been.... now I'll wonder all season what if we had Mayo........ oh well.

    We still ****ed up we had to get that deal done i dont care who ****ed up but it happen and it hurts us moving forward. I dont think we will ever know what truly happened still conflicting reports.
    Just because the other team got smart and pulled out because they realized that the trade was very much in our favor doesn't mean the FO screwed up. It's the same with the TJ/Augustin trade a year or two ago.

    Our FO gets involved in these lopsided trades and sometimes the other team balks at the last minute. However, the Murphy/collison trade did work out nicely.

    Getting O.J. Mayo would finally solve our leadership issues.

    He'd be the best thing since Reggie.

    It sucked we couldn't get this deal done. Mayo is a proven leader and a star SG waiting to erupt.

    BIRD MUST GET THIS DONE IN THE OFFSEASON!

    Why'd you have to park it there?

    It's pretty obviously your fault. Especially if you were drunk at the time of the accident. In your backyard cooking out? So what, there's still no call for you being drunk with your car just sitting there right in the path of an oncoming car.



    So what I'm saying is why was Bird drinking at a Morway cookout when the Griz owner decided to kill the deal? Oh they weren't. That leads to a bigger question, why WEREN'T they?

    Stupid, stupid b******s. You'd never see something bad happening while I'm drunk and not involved.

    The last time I was drunk Seal Team 6 got Bin Laden and I was 100% not involved. That's how you get things done.

    Dude can create for himself.

    And he can also finish around the rim.

    Imagine if we trade for Mayo (Hopefully 1st rounder, McRoberts, Rush)

    and sign Nene at PF.

    PG Collison SG Mayo SF Granger PF Nene C Hibbert

    Bench: Paul George, Hansbrough, AJ Price, Deandre Jordan

    I'm also a big fan of DeAndre Jordan!

    Not sure how much I like Mayo.... I tend to roll with Miracle Whip...

    No but in all seriousness Mayo can be good, and can contribute but I think it all depends on how he is used and what team he goes to.

    I do think the big reason that you do the trade is because I think it is easier to find a McRoberts than it is a Mayo...

    Mayo's D is what impresses me, his offense is good but sometimes I question what I perceive to be his lack of passion for the game. But obviously my perception could be wrong but this is just my opinion.
