Lets see can't come through in the clutch. Well I'm not a center, I'm a foward but the offense is designed around getting the ball to me and everyone else stand around and watch. Though anouncers don't know it I take many shots from around the foul line which is not 15ft, but it's still hard to rebound because I'm shooting from out there. I don't like to run, but most big men don't. Sometimes I actually sweat during the games and I'm not Carlisle, although I should be sweating. Who am I ?
Ps. I don't mind bitching at other players. I'm the franchise player. Larry put the alcohol down and go back to the eye doctor.

JO doesn't need a supporting cast, they need to get rid of JO and JT and pick up a couple people and let our backup's play like they can.

Yeah, lets get rid of a 20-10 guy who also is in the top 5 in blocks.....he is clearly the problem.

Let Foster get more minutes to pad his rebound numbers with his missed lay-ups.

His stats are fine. His career strongly resembles Chris Webber's. C/PF who increasingly relies on jump shots, wants to be 'the man', doesn't play defense, and can't seem to gel with any number of players who come through the revolving door of the Pacers' roster(s). Before you start yelling about his blocks and talk of "Def POY", save it. The guy doesn't hustle on D. A lot of times he is either posing after a good play by him or biatching to the refs after a bad play while the rest of the team plays 5on4 D. I think he would be a fine complimentary player with another superstar if he could just do his job and not worry about being 'the man', whatever that means. The Pacers have had a lot of personnel issues for sure. Don't forget, however, they have also gone through a tremendous amount of roster talent trying to find the right team chemistry with this guy as the focal point. That combination has been completely elusive and i, like others, am starting to think the problem may lie more with the centerpiece than the accessories...

Yeah, he's playing 20-10 games every week. Big freakin deal. If we don't have anybody else in the team to help out with that what happens??? oh yeah, a winning record of 2 of 17. JO is a great player, but he needs to go and we need a couple rising players in his place.
