The colts are in super bowl and your talking about lousy pacer basketball. The celtics will win two more championships before the pacers even get close.

I'd do the trade in a heartbeat. I was at the post office yesterday and there was a picture of Chris Mullen on a "Wanted" poster. He robbed you guys blind.
Mike Dunleavy is a bum. He is ineffectual in 6 games out of 7. He can't shoot (2 for 6 the other night - that's .333). He doesn't rebound (in fact he usually runs starts to head downcourt on defense rather than go underneath to battle for a rebound). He turns the ball over at inopportune times and usually looks lost on the court as he runs around with his mouth wide open and this dumb look on his face.
Whenever he does something it's usually at a meaningless point in the game.
Murphy is slow and doesn't play defense. He is a good rebounder but he didn't fit Golden State's running style. Diagu is probably the best player you got in the trade but he really hasn't had the opportunity to develop.
I predict when Richardson comes back the Warriors might try to move Jackson and Adonyl Foyle for a different big man.
So, while the Golden State playoff drought looks like it's going to continue, Pacers fans - like Bob Dylan once wrote - "You ain't going nowhere".

Other than the lunatic fringe nobody cares about the Raiders. They are a laughingstock and, unlike Indianapolis, we are a big enough market to support two NFL teams.
The Warriors fan base is extremely supportive. Year after year we are let down but we keep coming back. To say anything else just shows your lack of knowledge about sports in our market.

Golden State owner will find out what a deal it was when he bails Stephen Jackson out several times.

Last night the Warriors got pummeled by the Hawks. Yes, the HAWKS! See what Baron Davis said:
"We keep playing bad and that's pretty much it," Davis said.
"In order to win on the road, no matter who you play, you've got to play with a sense of urgency. And some passion and some heart and some smarts, and that's what we're not doing."
That sounds pretty much like Jermaine O'Neal before the trade, does it not?
The problem with what Harrington and Jackson don't bring to the table can't be seen in the box score. They are great for fantasy, not so great for the real game.
Again, I don't really care what Dunleavy or Murphy bring to the table because this is addition by subtraction. Besides, when it comes to large lame contracts, the name Austin Croshere immediately comes to mind. We've done that before
The most important part of this move is that Granger gets to step up.

This must be a genuine "win win" trade then where each team thinks they got what they needed and wanted. I think Indiana was just tired of jackson's baggage - and obviously GS fans were not pleased with their guys. Maybe each sides new players will flourish in a new zip code. Good luck to Golden State!
