The Pacers should bench all the starters and play only the 2nd string. They play better than the large salary players.

Let may say my mind.I always get caught up hoping the Pacers make sense of all this then they blow it and frustrates me.Believe it or not i think they lost the game because of JO comment."the Pacers will will make or dont make the playoffs with him stearing the ship".How dumb and downright selfish.I was a big JO fan,even wears his jersey and sweatbank.But his mindset is the reason they the lost the Miami game and their playoffs hopes.What happen to trusting teamates and doing the little things.That is the difference between JO and the rest of real franchise players.He is too selfish.Grainger was having a good why not go to him late.He keep driving between three and four people insted of drawing and passing the dam ball.Ric Caryle also has to shoulder this season.I am fed up with his favourite comments.Our ondoing was .......Why not call a play for Grainger.The other thing on my mind is ,he sets a week mindset for his players.His comments just before a home stretch was "this is an opportunity to make a move in the standings" instead of "lets play one game at a time" He is the reason his team dont play as a team .How can Mr Oneal be fit to play every game and not practice at all ,what garbage is that?Oneal in downright lazy if he can play he can practice with team for half hour.Troy Murphy is so soooooofffftttttt it sicks me sick.He is so soft is scared to even foul shak.Mcloud was playing well until Caryle stated trow JO the f..... ball.Now all he does is dribble and look for teamates instead of attacking like he was earlier.My friday is spoil i got to sit in a house full of Heat fans and suck it up.Thanks Ric and JO.

We witnessed a true franchise player put the burden on his back and carry them to victory. What makes it worse, he has a bump shoulder. While our franchise player threw up brick after brick after brick. Then, our smart coach, didn't have the intelligence to go to the player that shined all throughout the game, Danny Granger. NOOOOO. We had to keep going back to our stiff Jermaine O'Neal. Please get rid of him now before his stock goes down any further.

JO should lead by example not condemn the rest of the team. The general vision from the folks I know and work with is "What good players the Pacers have are thugs and troubled teens that never grew up." I also believe the Pacers management should use the benchmark set by the Suns and form team discipline and quit letting the inmates run the asylum.

Hey, Pacers up by 8 with 5 minutes to go JO on the bench. Pacers lose lead and game with JO in the game. He missed the last 4 shots he took. If he's injured put him on the bench and leave him there. He lost this game for the team because Carlisle went to him 5 straight times and he couldn't hit a shot.

I am with Autney Holmes and fairness....and everyone actually...rick carlise was not very intelligent....when oneal is in the game the players are forced to dump it to him in the low post where he is heavily gaurded and thats where most of the turnoevers happen.....and if he gets it...he was like 2 of 13 why do you not ride the hot hand.....aka GRANGER!

what good would it do for the Pacers to make the Playoffs? If they did, they wouldn't go anywhgere. JO will probably demand a trade at the end of the year and Larry Bird will no doubt trade him for a couple slow white guys
(I'm white so I can say that). SO let's get a lottery pick.

What are we? A team with no identity can't understand what it's gameplan to accomplish it's goal is. What a disappointing season.
