The Pacers are the Timberwovles of the East: our GM is a former Boston great, we have a prized big man, good role players, a perpensity to give up on veteran leaders, and a history of trading for talented but disruptive elements. The real problem is management. The Simons need to cough up a couple week's personal pay and acquire a real center. We have traded 3 All Stars "5's" in the last seven years, all for players who were past their prime or never had it to start with. Larry Bird makes questionable draft picks and has a fetish for white guys who can't play defense. Carlisle is a micromanager who forces a half court style in an uptempo era. You want to win games? Rebound and run baby, rebound and run. The Pacers need to make deals based on what will get them to the finals, not deals based on capitulation or short term profit goals.

With a friend like Bird does Carlisle really need enemies. Bird gives him a high profile position and then surrounds him with losers and fires him. Hope Bird never calls me friend.
Wake up Indiana the problem starts and ends with the Simons who see this state as one thing and one thing only. Their personal cash cow. Walsh has been an idiot for 18 years and he has proven it over an over again. Check our draft record and the current roster condition. Only an idiot or individual with a serious drug problem would of agreed to the deals that has placed this franchise in such a sorry state.
Bird is just a dumb jock who is in over his head and will do whatever Walsh tells him to do.
WANT CHANGE FOR THE PACERS? BOYCOTT SIMONS MALL AND RETAIL OUTLETS. TURN OFF THE CASH FLOW INDIANA AND WATCH HOW FAST THE SIMONS RESPOND.
