    If this doesn't happen now it is your fault. I hope you are willing to accept that.

    15 years too late if true, as we should have drafted him over Bender. Kind of surprised that he would want to come here. Figured he'd definitely want to go to a title contender. He obviously has some game left and would make us a better team.

    What happens when we sneak into the playoffs as the 8 seed and get a bad draft pick for no reason?

    Does this confirm that the franchise was willing to spend just had a number for lance?

    The 8th seed last year got the 15th pick in the draft. Not terrible at all

    Yeah, that's the problem. I don't think anyone on this board is as big of a jerk in person as they come across on here. Except maybe Nuntius. Dude is impossibly nice.

    I don't really feel like the 15th pick is a "bad" pick (thats what the 8th seed in the east got last year) and it shows our supporting cast is better than what people here originally thought, so isn't it a good thing our supporting cast is good enough to make the playoffs even without PG?

    If you were waiting for someone more credible...


    I know it doesn't confirm he is signing, but there it is.

    Well if the alternative is the 9th spot sign me up for 8th.

    It isn't as good as, say, the 12th pick, and for what? A few wins here and there, a playoff stomping, and then we are worse off for when the games actually matter, in 2015-2016. But whatever, I've already made my thoughts on tanking known. I just hate this move for both parties if it ends up happening.

    I'll still wait for a more credible source to say he's officially signed. Glad Stein could at least confirm he met with Larry earlier
    Stop quoting people I have on ignore!

    My opinion?

    This puts the Pacers as like the 6th seed in the East. A scrappy mid level playoff team, with the mantra of "Play for PG!" will sell tickets in this town. Which for this season is probably the Simons number 1 goal. They don't want to lose the ticket momentum from the past two years.

    Also the only way to tank completely and effectively (top 5 pick) is to dump Roy and West, and selling Roy right now for 25 cents on the dollar doesn't really appeal to me and probably the FO either. West might fetch you some assets, but the Pacers might also want West around for when PG returns. Overall I think this move makes a ton of sense.

    Plus we talk ALL THE TIME about how good the western conference is and we may get a SF who put up 10, 6, 2, and 2 in 30 MPG and played top 10 NBA defense at his position from the conference.

    assuming, if true, we paid him. hope Donald Sloan's up and paying attention, and didn't get a mortgage here. again, if true, I dig it. screw tanking, PG's not dead.

    something called not losing a lot of money as an owner, saw earlier today that we'd lose 17.4 mil in revenue by losing PG for the season. Now, if we sign Marion, we will make the playoffs and we won't lose as much

    But what does this do for Paul George? Marion's gone in a year.

    yep bc that 12th pick will get so much playing time on the team next year... 4 or 5 spots doesn't mean ****. If we tanked and got 5th or 6th pick the year we drafted PG then this team wouldn't be what it it

    Doing this to win games next year in spite of crippling years that matter feels like winning a battle but losing the war.

    Maybe, or maybe you snagged a great vet backup to help PG with the minutes load. There's no law that says he can't re-sign here.
