    Default I think I've figured out what went down with Ron

    After reading the ESPN.com interview, it all started to make sense to me.

    Ron is having some problems at home, most likely due to the immense amount of time he's spent playing basketball and working on his album. Because of this, his family isn't happy that he's never around. As such, Ron began to ponder retirement to spend more time with his family. But due to his love for the game, he instead decided to ask Rick for some time off, to unwind and calm his family down a bit. Rick rejected his request, which irked Ron. JO went to try to talk to Ron about how much the team needs him, and the whole thing blew up into an argument/pushing match. Due to this, Rick benched Ron for two games.

    Well, it makes sense to ME, anyway.

    Shade that does make a lot of sense.

    Yeah - Shade that's actually a really good speculation.

    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!

    Just a odd thought that came into my head today......

    What if Ron is doing this all for the "marketing" of his new albums? I mean, now that he has said and done all this, how many people do you think are going to go buy the new albums just to see what all the fuss was about.....

    Just an odd thought and not necessarily true.....

    That could be it.

    Very logical.

    Yeah, he even admitted in one of his quotes that this was some nice publicitiy - although he did not intend for it to happen.......or so he says.

    I believe TNT's Kenny said the same thing last night - this was all a publicity stunt.

    But now we are hearing what really went on between Ron and Jermaine.....

    If Ron is truly having problems at home shouldn't he be AT HOME working on them rather than sitting on the bench not playing? Just a thought.

    Yes I'm sure this is all a publicity stunt. It's working wonders on me. I can hardly wait to run right out there and buy his album.
