    If larry is in control of the draft I think that means he'll be back, you don't just let someone who is on the up and out have control of something like that just for good measure.

    I honestly could barely make out what Walsh was saying.

    Bird appeared to be in an upbeat mood, and I felt Pritchard looked enthused about the job.

    Whatever happens... thanks, Larry Bird.

    IMO, if we do a trade this offseason it will be tomorrow while LB and Pritch are still the combo. Otherwise, DW's marching orders are to re-sign Hill and Hibby, and hold down the fort until Bird's health hopefully comes around and he comes back.
    If Larry Bird's gonna be there through Summer League, then I'd imagine he will participate in most of the major decisions.

    Can't wait to see Pritchard on draft day - the guy is known for making draft day deals. Of course, he had a lot more money behind him in Portland, but at least we know he will be working the phones.

    Also, for everyone saying we will draft Green - Pritchard typical drafts younger players, at least that seemed to be the case in Portland.

    I get the feeling Larry wants to go out with a boom. I'd not be surprised at all if the Pacers are very active tomorrow night.

    So in a nutshell what is going on? For those of us not able to listen to the press conference.

    I'm excited for having pritchard work the draft as well. We really haven't got to pritch slap any teams, we almost got to pritch slap memphis but morway apparently screwed that up.

    It makes sense for Larry Bird to do the draft, he's done all of the homework and research on prospects, as far as scouting. If Donnie Walsh had all of the sudden jumped in, I'm not sure I'd be as comfortable just on a basis of the prep work needed going in.

    After watching this and seeing the demeanor of everyone, I feel alot better than I initially did ... alot better...

    I am willing to give them the benefit of the doubt...

    I guess the initial reports just kinda had me shellshocked and worried about our team being gutted/traded and Hibbert not re-signed , and our developmental players being let go ...
    After this press conference, as I said , I feel alot better...
    I believe with Larry's endorsement of Lance, that he will be safe , and with both Pritch and Donnie's endorsement of our core guys along with our #1 priority being re-signing our free-agents, it put my mind at ease and backed me off the ledge.. lol ... **shew** wipes brow ..

    For those saying it sounds like Larry will be back, what do you make of the "see you in the next life" comment?

    Pritchard seemed contrite and humble.
    How do you figure? To quote KP verbatim... "We'll be aggressive, when the right occassion happens... Somebodys getting Pritch-Slapped... And there is nothing you, Larry, Donnie, Kravitz or David Stern can do about it! When Pritch Happens, its always for Basketball reasons!!!"

    Not very humble in my opinion... and I love it!

    I think Larry was drunk in this interview honestly LOL

    He was cracking so many one liners it's tough for me to say exactly, just the vibe I get from the way Larry was acting there. He's doing the draft, he's staying around until the very last second before his surgery, Simon clearly thinks Larry walks on water. At the very least, the door will always be open for Larry to return and we know how hard it can be for guys to say good bye to the game.

    I definitely get the vibe that this is temporary set up with Walsh stepping in as a favor to Bird and Herbie. We can only hope Bird is back in 2 years. Seems way to planned out at this point.

    Same with Walsh, despite him not being able to be in the draftroom (I think, b/c NY contract), I'm sure Bird and Pritch know his opinions.

    Larry is not coming back, he didn't have a meeting with Orlando for not reason, yeah he is coming back to the NBA but not to the Pacers, the notion that he is a taking a year off and then come back is absurd.

    Like I said, just a bunch of good old boys shooting the **** is what it felt like. They all probably went back to Bird's office for beers and scotch and smokes after that.

    You're not alone.

    I'm game for Kevin Pritchard taking over, but not as Donnie's 1st Officer.
