    I hate articles like this. Why would a player make these comments to someone in the media under a condition of anonymity? What does that accomplish?

    So many articles that just quote "sources" or "sources close to the situation." How do we know it's not just made up?

    I'd like to nominate this post in the category "Most Gratuitous Use of a Jim O'Brien Slam".
    It's actually extremely relative, you just love JOB so much you think he should have stopped being mentioned the second he was fired, and shouldn't have been complained about till the second he was fired.


    Rick and Brown coached in Indy, and they coached Ron in Indy, and Ron complained about how they used him.

    JOB coached in Indy and became infamous for dismissing several players' good outings or set of games with both comments and reduced playing time despite stats that suggested maybe increasing playing time.

    Ron is now complaining the same way about the guy that was Rick's ast in Indy, and is complaining about reduced time based on stats when they say he should be sitting.

    So wondering what he'd do if he put up GOOD numbers and JOB then pulled a classic "irrelevant" or "we saw what he could do so now he can return to the bench" move and dropped his minutes to 0 suddenly seems extremely relevant to the discussion. (my guess - total Scanners outcome)


    Pacers fans happen to have seen both extremes pretty close up. A coach randomly dumping on players that deserved a shot, and a player complaining for (not randomly) being limited due to questionable play and choices...twice now.



    JOB will always get brought up for that kind of situation and every time any PF takes a 3pt shot.

    The good news for you is that I will NEVER bring him up as a reference for a coach gnawing on a player's ankle ala JVG. That would be a gratuitous random JOB slam.

    Any time bad coaches are discussed Jim O'Brien's name will come up among Pacers fans... Just as any time crazy athletes are discussed Artest's name will come up.
    Nuntius was right. I was wrong. Frank Vogel has retained his job.
