AMEN! I don't think the Pacers have ever said what really happened in this deal. Is is bad evaluation of talent? Did they find out White was Artest Jr? They screwed up somewhere and nothing was ever made of it.<quoted text>
I don't think Bird and Donnie Walsh have gotten enough criticism for trading away our '07 2nd round pick and an '08 2nd round pick (either our own or the one Phoenix owes us from the James Jones trade) for James White and then promptly cutting White a few weeks later. WTF? We just GAVE away two 2nd round picks for ABSOLUTELY NOTHING....
I thought D Walsh stated a long time ago that he didnt trade draft picks. After Pacers got burned on Tom Owens...you'd think they'd have learned. So is this Larry's doing to trade picks?
I doubt if Bob K goes through these posts, but Bob, when its time for a review of this whole season's meltdown, be sure to include this awful trade.
