    The more impressive line was Darko:

    11 minutes, 6 fouls

    I can laugh, at that because quite frankly he was being picked on. At least 4 of those fouls were super-cheap. Its not like he was playing bad D or anything.

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    It's good to know you can laugh about it.

    Why is there a Darvin Ham update. I mean I sort of understand the PB updates. PB was some sort of mesianic figure to some of the people on here. But Darvin Ham?

    He did play in one game for the Pacers - during the season we all try to forget.
    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

    I thought there was no way he only played in one game. I looked it up, and sure enough, Jay is right. I should have known better than to doubt you!

    But it really does shock me. I would have sworn he played a lot more than that. In fact, I think he only played like five minutes. Why do I remeber his Pacers career so much?

    As that season wore on, and we all become more and more depressed and suicidal (I actually decided not to go to a game that was in our ticket package ), I think the only highlights were wondering (a) if (hoping?) the players would kill Larry Brown before he quit; and (ii) if Darvin would ever actually get into a game - and if he did, would Brown pull him immediately after a spectacular dunk?

    I'm not sure I even watched the game he played in; for some time after that season I would always say, "yeah he was on our injured list, but he never played." Then I saw the same thing you noted - he did play for five minutes of one game.

    I thought that this thread was going to really be about Al Harrington.


    Recall that Isiah wanted Al to play like Ham, and Al was highly offended to be compared to a scrub like Ham.

    Maybe we can call Al "Darvin Ham II"
    The poster "pacertom" since this forum began (and before!). I changed my name here to "Slick Pinkham" in honor of the imaginary player That Bobby "Slick" Leonard picked late in the 1971 ABA draft (true story!)

    That season was so bad that for a fraction of a second I considered not renewing my league pass. Then I slapped myself silly (metaphorically) and let it auto renew.
