Time will tell. Unfortunately, after getting used to watching Carlisle's offense, I will have to see it to believe it.

When will the Pacers learn to dump dead weight like Jermaine O'Neal while the team can get some value from the deal? Jermaine will screw up both the offense and team harmony as the article implies. He is a numbers guy. His stats are more important to him than winning games if it comes down to a choice between the two. O'Neal made clear his desire to leave Indianapolis and join his malcontent buddy Kobe Bryant in LA. I would have bid him an immediate adieu, but we will now watch him destroy another season for the Pacers. If any other team is foolish enough to cough up the cash to sign O'Neal as a free-agent, he will desert the ship after this season anyway.

If the Pacers can stay healthy, and show some effort that they lacked last year they can win 50 games. We are ten deep, we supposedly are going to play touph D, and motion offense with lots of threes and quick shots, so I'm a little excited to see what this team can do.

So, when you run in place, you don't really get anywhere, right? So was that the point of this article? The Pacers will be running in place, but not really going anywhere?

To Pogo,

If Jermaine does decide to leave after this season it will be the best thing to happen to the Pacers since we got artest and miller for nothing.

Doesn't this seem like the perfect team for a player like "Ron Artest"?
And,wasn't the restricted game strategy of Carlyle the reason for Artest's discontent.
I always believed that Artest's defensive skills and toughness made O'neil better. Artest's offense was a big plus. What a team they would be with a matured Artest back in his second home.

Im excited, I am lookn forward to watchin this type of pacers, I wont believe it till I see it but it will def. be different watching them run up and down and still play D but only time will tell but I am very curious to see what it will look like. Hit the Three and hit JO in the secondary offense?

Secondary offence???? I remember JO running the floor when he first came to the Pacers.....What happened....Foster runs the Floor,why can't we get that kind effort from Jermaine. Last year he was the last one down the floor ala....Karem....Moses in the late years....So if we're going to Run....Lets be a Team & Run!!!!

"a matured Artest"- Now there's an oxymoron.

O'Brien will have to explain to Tinsley the meaning of "run." It normally takes Tinsley 7-10 seconds to run the ball up the floor!

The sooner they dump JO for some youth or draft picks the better. He's shot. If he can't run the court - why keep him?...get rid of him - NOW ! His value is sinking fast with his bloated contract and only above average skills.

The Pacers should run like they do when the police are chasing them and everything will be fine!!

Let's see. "bloated contract and only above average skills" He could fit right in with the rest of the Knicks.

You see the season hasn't even started and Jermaine is already whinning. It is his way or no way. I wish he was half a good as he thinks he is, we would have a pretty good team.

His problem is that he wants to run the whole show. Oh sorry not RUN he would get too winded. He can't do that. He has to get the rest of the team out of sync and ruin the rhythm. Get rid of the Jerk!

It sounds like the new coach is going to have more than one play at least. I think that Jamaal will do a 360 degree turn around this year if given the chance that it sounds like he is going to get. Larry and Jermaine both forget they have others on the team, team being the operative word. Put five guys out on the floor against Jermaine and you will see how WONDERFUL you think he is. You both think he is the only one that can play, so let him play by himself. When he (Jermaine) is not in the game the guys play their hearts out and it is a ball game. Then Jermaine comes back in and hogs the whole game and yes, HE throws the game. I honestly think he bets on the games. Poor baby can't make it on the Millions he is paid so I have to gamble. Larry take off your Rose color Glasses and see Jermaine for what he is and get rid of the Jerk before the season starts. I would like to see a winning team for a change. I said a TEAM. There can't be a team as long as Jermaine is there. Larry I hope you aren't betting on the games too.

GO PACERS!

Thank goodness the preseason is here. Now maybe we can stop reading about JOB's up-tempo system, and start seeing it. I've said it before, and I'll say it again...I like what I'm hearing about the new system and all, but I want to see how guys like JO, Murph, Ike, Jeff, Dun, and Harrison are going to do in it.

We heard this last year...and back then we had guys like Al, SJax (doh!), Sarunas, and "Flight-White." Those guys were supposed to be able to run. But we traded them away for guys who were more half-court oriented...and not known for their ability to apply any credible defensive pressure.

I'm not from Missouri, but someone is still going to have to "show me."

I'll bet that the pacers place 4th in the east, of course with a 3 over/under. Any takers?
