    He's just mad that's probably it for Lance.
    I don't care one bit about Lance. I think that Bird was refreshing after Walsh, and Bird is the one who created the situation we are in, and should be allowed to continue with it. Being pushed out for Walsh is no good.

    Dude seriously, Bird isn't being pushed out. He is the one rejecting the Pacers now.

    Quoted the wrong one, meant the BornReady dude talking about how we're going to be the Seattle Pacers.

    I don't get how you conclude Bird was pushed out for Walsh though. Sure, anything's possible. But there's just enough info until they have the presser tomorrow or whenever.

    I have to say I'm surprised at the vehement dislike here for Donnie Walsh, same thing for Draymond Green, maybe I'm taking the Hyperbole too literal. I can get being tepid or disliking guys, but some of its 'sky is falling' stuff. I guess its just that time of year.
    Same thing with Draymond Green? The 26th pick is less than a 1/3rd shot of anyone even playing on an NBA team. You're going to pimp someone that will most likely never be as successful as Dahntay Jones..

    Walsh was at pre draft workouts at invite of Bird. Had no contract with #Pacers at that point and was not paid for that consultation

    Hmm...

    Query broke the Peyton Manning news, yes?

    Someone call Rob Lowe and see what he knows.

    I don't know what to think about this. Change is good sometimes, but Larry did good at his job.

    Any time you can fire the executive of the year for a 71 year old, I think you have to do it.

    He didn't get fired, he's stepping down.

    I think is safe to say that we don't have "safe players" in our roster anymore, Tyler, Lance, Pender, Danny and DC are probably gone.

    Pendergraph is Pritchard's guy from Portland.

    In fact, I won't be surprised if a few more ex-Blazers show up here, like Armon Johnson. Or Brandon Roy

    Pendergraft was basically gifted to the Pacers by Pritchard. He is safe.

    But yes I would be surprised to see some draft day dealings with DG and DC involved. Not sure anyone even wants Tyler.

    Gone with Walsh? Look for them to get massive raises instead.
    O'Brien has been fired! Yay! What took so long?

    What would make this selection even worse is the fact that there will be undoubtedly someone more talented than Green available at the 26th pick. Doron Lamb, Jeff Taylor, Marquis Teague, Tony Wroten, Jared Cunningham, Will Barton, Fab Melo, Royce White, Festus Ezeli, Quincy Miller, John Jenkins, etc are some of the players that could be available by the time the Pacers pick. So out of those guys, why select a "glue" guy? Definitely a head scratcher.

    this sucks. i dont care what any of the bird critics have to say. ive read most of their opinions and disagree with normally 80-90% of it all. i cant read the whole thread and usually do not post while at work. but this is horse****

    so Simon is unwilling to let go of morwary im guessing. or is not willing to build a contender b/c that is the only reason Bird would leave. if it were only health related regarding his back surgery i think he would have taken a brief hiatus.

    as of now my allegiance to the nba is jeopardy. always a pacer fan.. but the nba favoring the big city teams is a load of bull.

    lotta respect for walsh during his previous tenure but i do nto want to see him back.

    thank God the Hoosiers are back where they belong.

    Teams are still gonna spend watch the Heat add a MLE guy when they are already 8m over the tax.
    Actually, they can't due to the new rules. Teams that are $4m above the tax level can only offer the mini MLE (max of $9m over 3 years) which is significantly smaller than the full MLE (max of $20m over 4 years). That's why there's talk that the Heat may amnesty Mike Miller so that they can add a full MLE guy. But the point is that the Heat (or other taxpaying team) can't keep adding full MLE players without limit any more as they did in the past.

    Spurs did that with Hill and it was very smart way to save money. But I think that had to do just as much basketball wise they loved Leonard.

    I am guessing we do something like that with Collison so we dont overpay to keep him.
    Oh yeah. The smart decision would be to recycle DC and Hans into cheap rookie scale deals.
