    Yes I find any of those scenarios as possible. They have happened before. I chose not to think everything is iron clad. If chemistry and play can strengthen if a player is added... Why is it so dismissed that if a player is added the chemistry and play can be hurt?
    Possible isn't the same as plausible.

    We're bringing in Bynum to strengthen an already strong team's weakness... not 'fix' a bad team.

    I don't see how a chemistry issue can flare from that scenario. He's basically expendable if he doesn't fit the plan on any count.
    Nuntius was right. I was wrong. Frank Vogel has retained his job.

    According to Reggie the Championship is ours to lose:

    The signing of Bynum very smart, doesn't allow your rival, the Heat, to potentially get bigger. It's the Pacers Championship to lose..
    — Reggie Miller (@ReggieMillerTNT) February 1, 2014

    Reggie must not have been watching the Suns or OKC play much this year. The greatest threats to the Pacers this year are not the Heat, but a couple of the western teams

    Possible, probable, or plausible. Do you think the only plausible outcome is all good. This situation is not the same as Tinsley. Tinsley was on the team already for years. We were contenders. He was a starter. Bynum is different.

    We we aren't the Patriots of the Nba. We are more like the Chargers.

    Interesting.
    It is, without a doubt, up to Bynum to change whatever negative perception his new 'mates may have about him. All he has to do is be humble, respectful and work hard.

    It's possible that a meteor will destroy Miami's arena and they'll have to withdraw from the league for the rest of the year, but I sure wouldn't bank on it.
    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!

    We should all chip in to buy them some Depends. Can you picture that? A package arrives at the Heat offices, with a tag that says "From the Indiana Pacers". Inside is a package of Depends!

    No doubt this makes us better (even moreso IMO) than the Heat, but I dont think that he makes it any better of a matchup against the Thunder in a potential finals matchup... The Thunder is who we sould be concerned with and we have to get more out of Granger and Scola than we have been recently...

    I don't think the worst case scenario for this is catastrophic. But it is pretty ******. If Bynum doesn't commit and/or doesn't get healthy enough to play, that is our last roster spot, another spot on the bench, and another space in the locker room. For fans, it's no harm no foul. But for the players and coaches, it's a relevant distraction, especially if national media is interested. Personally, I don't think he will have much impact at all, no matter where he went; I'd be surprised if this is anything more than a non-story by season's end.

    It is interesting to see: 1. how many people are in favor of this now that Larry has gone through with it (it wasn't this much or this enthusiastic as before). 2. The backlash to the (relatively little) backlash is in full effect, despite it not needing to be.

    FWIW, I'm not saying this as a Ian fan. I will be perfectly happy with Bynum playing minutes if he deserves them. I just think that is something we need to observe and not assume.

    I think I read something about the supposed "coach's wife" story didn't have much to stand on cause the "supposed coach" isn't even married.
    That's exactly what I remember reading on a RealGM thread. That doesn't mean it's true though. It just seems like there was something significant that happened but I doubt we will ever know.

    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.

    It was his attitude and his lack of desire to play.

    There is a difference between "the risk is worth the reward" and " low risk and high reward". Especially when so many are saying "low" risk is absolutely no risk.

    I know there have been various rumors but did it ever come out what he did? The team doesn't seem excited about him coming in.
    Attitude, especially during practice. He said he didn't want to play basketball and apparently he showed it on multiple occasions. That final suspension in Cleveland happened after he came to practice and was just insubordinate and jerking wild shots instead of participating.

    Which also reminds me of that last season in LA, when Bynum was taking those 3s early in the clock out of some stupid stubbornness. Also, I recently read Kobe quotes about that Mavs sweep a few years ago and what lead to it; supposedly the team had people who disrupted practice all year long, although he didn't mention anyone by name.

    It's worrisome but I'm sure they'd just cut him at first sign of trouble.

    Playing for Cleveland can do that to a person. That team seems to have a LOT of problems.

    I think these negative worries are possible but not plausible.

    I think the positive possibilities here are plausible but not probable.

    He always answers questions like that with annoyance, like the fanny Granger return questions.

    I wouldn't expect anyone of them to be enthusiastic about Bynum right now. He has a lot to prove. The potential reward is exciting, but far from guaranteed.

    I've got my fingers crossed that he doesn't do to your team what he's done everywhere else. The guy is bat-poop nuts, a slacker and (from what I've heard from people who might know) is more capable of screwing up a locker room with stupid drama than anyone not named Dennis Rodman.

    Good luck. I've got my hopes set on you kicking Lebron and the Heat right where they need to be kicked. If Bynum does anything to disrupt that, I'm not going to be a very happy playoff Pacers bandwagon fan.

    Until proven otherwise, I'm assuming he'll be on his best behavior here given our culture, winning %, and championship potential. I'm more curious about his long term health. I think if the health is there, we could be getting a significant upgrade at backup center. But I of course could be wrong.
