"George's athleticism is bananas!" - Marc J. Spears
Let's look at it this way. I am sad about losing Danny, but I am SUPER excited about our chances now. When playoff time comes, and rotations shorten to 8 players, we LEGITIMATELY have 8 players that are NBA starter caliber. Of course our starting 5, but with this years pickups in Scola, Bynum, and Turner.....Holy hell....I am not discrediting Mahinmi at all, but Bynum has the veteran playoff experience that I feel will benefit us greatly. The mighty Larry has swung his bat, and it looks as if he has hit a grand slam this year...
I just hope that losing Granger doesn't wreak havoc on team chemistry.....
This is ridiculous. Why are we even so freaking active? Is having the best record in the league not good enough? Are we really risking it all just to upgrade certain positions after half the games been played? We're adding guys who haven't been in training camp. Don't know our system. Don't know their role. And they won't have too much time to learn all that. Not to mention team chemistry. *******. And why Danny?
This man lost teeth for the Pacers...
When you're that close to a championship, you do not ever settle for "enough." I don't care if it's upgrading the ball boys. You do it if you have the opportunity. The one thing you do not do is pass up an upgrade because it's late February and you like your W/L record.

Cable still trying to imply it will somehow cost assets to move Copeland's 3mil expiring I see.
At this point, it's clear that the front office has exhausted all possible options to win this team a championship. Bird has done everything he possibly can to deliver a championship this season. As far as this season is concerned, his work is finished for the most part. Now it's all on the players and coaches. Bird has given them all of the needed tools to succeed, but he can't put the ball in the hoop for them. It's up to them to seize the golden opportunity given to them by The Legend.

What's the rule on re-signing players you've traded and have been bought out?
I'm assuming you can't do it but couldn't you in the past?

Very solid pickup. Should flourish in an enviroment that hr doesn't have to be THE MAN. Excited to see what he can contribute

Something is not right with Allen's supposed RFA status. He was signed to a 2- year contract in the SECOND round of the 2012 draft. If I'm not mistaken, that would make him UFA, not RFA.
RFA status applies to players with 3 years of service or less, or to first rounders with 4 years of service. So Allen still falls under RFA as a 3rd year player, but not Lance, since Lance is a 4th year non-first rounder.
Ian is so bad I think Allen fits very well as backup center until Bynum is ready. Allen will at least give us offense along with defense. That's why I think Lavoy came in the trade. He holds down back up center until Bynum is ready. Then when Bynum plays Allen will slide to backup PF. What happens to Scola? He might get garbage time minutes. Scola is a good mid range shooter when he's on. But these days, because of the elbow or loss of confidence he's NOT on. His slow-footedness, and age also make him a defensive liability.
Cope defended well in that Minny game when he was playing. Love hit an amazing shot over him to end the 3rd quarter but Love was just hot that night. And we weren't. I honestly think this trade was long in the making, and the team knew it. Hence the lack of focus Tuesday. That.....and the b2b. It truly was Danny's last game. PG came to play still though.
