    I hope they go it would be a good experience for them. Hopefully they go team up and join the same club.

    But again i tend to agree with Charles guys like Danny arent going over they have too much money to lose. This is a ploy by the players association IMO.

    I believe some will go, but I also think its across the board posturing for the Union to try to gain leverage. I don't see Stern being the type to flinch at the notion.

    Can't see Posey doing it, unless he's just awful with money, also can't see why a team would want him. Can't see Danny getting an offer big enough to make it worthwhile. Rush I could potentially see, not gonna get a lot of burn here, last year of his deal (no deal at all if there's no season), maybe try and get a higher profile again. Inferno strikes me as a renaissance man so I bet he'd do it. PG, no clue.

    Don't want PG too just because while more coaching and competition would help, I don't question is work ethic, I'm sure he's already working hard. And knowing our luck...

    I'll go ahead and get this out of the way.

    Wells says Danny and Inferno'd consider it if the lockout "lingers too long."

    I really have a hard time trying find a downside of them going.

    I mean if we lose the season I'd rather our guys go play somewhere. Sure they can get hurt, but you can get hurt just practicing. I'd rather see them get a little game experience.

    So and so might play overseas is all you read in the NBA rumor sections anymore. I've quite reading them. It seems everyone is considering it.

    There's not that many jobs overseas, and it seems to me that they will go to the established stars and not to players that really might need (snort) the money.

    So Rush is out, Danny and Dahntay'd just consider it. So that leaves Posey and PG to be "aggressively pursuing" it. Sensing some agent talk here.

    If it were me I would not go over seas to play. the risk of injury..etc out weighs the positives of playing there. Id rather be here in the US of A training and or working out with my teammates to help build the comradery(sp?) even though its not official team work outs..thats what i would be doing.

    Kind of like Jay Williams playing for the Bulls and having that Oh ***** moment after wrecking his motorcycle. Not only being in great pain but knowing he may not get aother dime for violating his contract.

    Hey, it would keep them in shape. No Shawn Kemp situations if they are playing somewhere.

    I hope Danny and Paul DO NOT go over and play. Posey and Rush? I'll buy the plane tickets.

    And personally, I love having inferno on the team. So stay here DJ.

    Agreed.

    I'd be more than fine if Posey and Rush went overseas and when the lockout finally ends, they can just stay over there.

    Really confused as to why some wouldn't want them to go over there. The only downside is the risk of injury, but they could get injured playing pickup ball in the YMCA. At least they'd be getting paid when it happened.

    Also, no team is going to take on the 5 Pacers. In fact no team is going to take on that many NBA players to begin with. When the NBA lockout ends, these teams still need to have just that, a TEAM. No team is going to give more than 1 or 2 spots to NBA guys and only those who are worth it. Like Deron Williams.

    Surely it's the other way around? US players taking away foreign jobs?

    On a positive note, even though you guys were just making fun, I know for fact Amsterdam does have some roster spaces left, but they have nothing that would even get close to something the players might even consider playing for. Would love to see me some pacers in my home country though!
    yay, we're going back to the play-offs!
