It might be a good idea to avoid using the word "cuff" in any headline involving our Pacers.....I saw that word and figured the guy'd been arrested at a strip bar with Tinsley last night...

Pacers will not make the playoffs because we have a group of lazy, complacent, overpaid, less than average players with a less than average coach! Bird and Walsh have built a team of losers: Keep it up...

Makes sense about J.O. kicking the ball out when double teamed/triple teamed instead of forcing shots like in the past! I wondered how long it would take to realize in this league you have to plat team . One guy can't carry a team by himself no matter how good he is individually....Iverson, Anthony,Kobe,Howard,etc. Look at their past records when it's been ALL about them carrying their team! Their teams records bely that philosophy. Look at their teammates that stepped up when they were missing or gone. Wow, new superstars? No, just playing a subordinate role. How many assists could J.O. average if he kicked the ball out when the double/triple teams came? Could the Pacers win as easily as they did Sat. and end up being a possible contender instead of the PRETENDER they have been of late? Glad to see Diogu get to play, 15 points in 19 minutes. This seems to be a possible norm. I hope Carlisle sees this???? McLoed? No! Give Greene the minutes. Sub Williams at Small forward and take Dunleavy out so Granger can play the 2 guard. Unless your playing Detroit or another grind it out team, sit Foster play Harrison. Foster won't score, he acts like the ball is a hot potatoe??? He's got to hit the boards and stop the outlet pass. He's not going to block or alter the other teams shots so send him to the 'o' boards all the time, only way I can see to get rare production out of him! Give J.O.'s knee a rest. He thinks the Pacers can't get open without him? They are so accustomed to throwing the ball in to him they just stand around and wait for him to put it up to the point they are taken out of the game by Carlisle's insistence to let J.O. "CARRY" this club to the detriment of the team as a whole.

Another thing, beings you lied to the fans again last July and drafted the wrong Williams. Make all point guards press the ball at all times..full court, whatever. 4 possibly 5 point guards equals 24 to 30 fouls so use them if you have to, but pressure the damn ball. If Tinsley gets tired or pouty take him out!!! Make the lazy guy work for his paycheck. You'd think he was a prima donna?? or something. If these guys don't want to do what it takes collectively for whatever reason(alcoholic?whoremongerin g?drugy?carrouser?)Get rid of them NOW!!!!

Did anyone see Carlisle on the news last night? It's been mentioned that he should be more like Tony and lo and behold he was shootin' hoops at a church. Sorry, Pacers, you shouldn't have made it so obvious...

I'm tired of the pacers. Lets get a new team, who really wants a team were the players take turns visiting jail. Or maybe we should just change the name of the team to Jail Birds. would that be better than the pacers. besides if I'm going to pay that much for a ticket and then realize that after the game I didn't see a pro team play, that means I just got robbed. Lets change some thing like the players or the Coach. GO COLTS!

I guess breaking a twelve game losing streak was reason enough to make it rain at the strip club...what's next pacman jones gets picked up as Marquis Daniels replacement...

Just in case any Pacers fans want more to be pissed off about, check out ESPN fantasy draft where the Pacers select another PF in the lottery. I have done it several times and it is the same guy over and over. Hopefully Larry & Co. are looking in a different direction.

I have never seen so many fairweather fans in my life. I have been a long time season ticket holder and for a team that has given us so much over the years, you would think that the organization would deserve a few down years. I am not saying that they have done everything correctly, but they are making moves to try and win. I hate this team as much as the next guy, but I see some beginnings of a good team. Sure, Tinsley is terrible and Dunleavy can't throw it in the ocean, but I like Granger and Diogu. Making a major move and trading JO this summer might set us back another year, BUT it would give us the ability to get some more draft picks and build around the above mentioned two. Carlisle could take the brunt of the blame, but the dude has been in a no win situation. Give them through the summer to see what happens, because if you are expecting greatness this year you are going to continue to be disappointed.
