Josh McRoberts has played ONE MINUTE this season? I guess the money's nice, but wouldn't being the Big Man On Campus at Duke be more enjoyable? It doesn't look like Duke is missing him though.

LOL wow that was funny. Gordon is a guaranteed high lottery pick, probably top-5 in the draft, and future multiple-time All-Star. The Butler guys you mention are great college ballplayers but probably won't even crack an NBA roster. Graves is a phenomenal shooter but is too small for most NBA teams and couldn't hold his ground against opposing guards.
Actually by all accounts, Mike Green will be in the NBA.

I say trade J.O. for the guy holding out in Cleveland. I can't think of his name but he's 6'10" and hustles. He is not looking to be an All-Star or "be the man", he just plays team ball and tries to win.

I thought Tinsley and Daniels played pretty good defense on Iverson along with the interior "D" when AI penetrated. Too me that was the key to the game, Iverson never really got on a roll shooting and distributing the ball. But again too many fouls, 1/2 of AI points came at the strip.
Agreed the ref's were terrible. Was it Adams(#47) that made the bad call on Dunleavy. I've seen him ref some terrible games at Conseco.
It's all RIGGED FOR BOSTON TO WIN...The Refs are being paid off; don't waste your time going to games or watching them..The Pacers may win 30 games...

Is Bird just waiting for Donnie to tap his shoulder to tell him to trade JO? What are they waiting for?

It's rare that there is such unity in a forum regarding JO. Yes, there are still those who defend him, but there seems to be consensus among most fans about the team playing better when he has less of a role if any.

Of course, it's all meaningless given we have no control over anything, but it's still interesting that so many fans seem to agree on this.

I am just glad the Pacers could win one on the road against a quality team like the Nuggets.. Oh, wait a minute, JO didn't play.. NO WONDER!! Perhaps it is time to deal for this dude, they are playin beautiful ball in his absence and should have won that game against Cleveland, but you win some and you lose some, but with JO, you lose some and then you lose more!!!!

Jermaine, you are really messing up my Fantasy world because I own both Murphy and Williams. Every day with this 'game time decision' crap. I sat Williams last night and missed out on a bunch of points! Cut it out, man!

Was Tim Donaghy a part of the officiating crew? Wait, no, he's probably hiding in a spider hole somewhere!

The NBA needs to get a handle on the officiating. I don't care how they do it, but last night's officiating was a turn-off for the game itself. Forget about makeup calls. The crew needs to get it right the first time everytime, or use video replay to assist.

The calls against Harrison, Daniels, and Dunleavy were very questionable. The call against Dunleavy could have cost us the game, and the Pacers were obviously the better team!

Please shut up..the Celtics lost last night and the refs seemed to be against them. Fixed? yeah right. It's just that officials suck, that's all. Heck, even Lakers fans (I mean, Lakers fans!!) complain about refs being horrible.

You got into a Pacer game deep enough to scream at the TV?
I usually reserve that for Colts or IU games.
You don't seem to care about the Pacers, so why are u reading the comments about a Pacers game? Do you even have a life since you waste your time reading stuff you don't care about?
And I don't understand what's the problem if the person you quoted get into Pacers games deep enough to scream at the TV. I do the same thing. Why? Because I love them more than anything else. Go back to watch the Colts please.
Also, it's really a shame that some people on here have to act like complete ##### upsetting Pacers fans and bashing the Pacers even when they actually play great and win games. Gosh, I hate trolls like you.

Bennie Adams may be the only official worse than Violet Palmer and that's pretty bad 'cause she SUCKS. I didn't think anyone could make worse calls than Miss Violet. Nice job Bennie. Send the video to the league office(?), what a joke. Stern has quotas on the number of defensive 3-second calls officials are required to make, and get repremands if they don't call enough. Stern and Co. need to go, they are ruining the NBA. I nearly did not renew my NBA League Pass this year because of their B-S. They probably are asked to try and make the Pacers lose if the truth were known. I applaude Jim O'Brien for finally getting a technical foul. I don't see how he doesn't get so mad he gets thrown out of every game!!

As far as I'm concreaned Eric Gorden is unproven. He may look good now, but he isn't one and done for college with college b-ball if he wants to play in the NBA, because in the NBA he is going to have to learn to play PG and in college he will be a Shooting Guard. Also don't forget the fact that IU has had a few Indiana native bust like T-Town's Steve Hart. Also keep in mind that AJ graves can bench 280 LBS and both him and Pete Campell will unlike Gorden will be able to keep their positions in the NBA.

But for the record, next year I see
Pete Campell (A Reggie Miller clone with a better 3 pointer) going about 11th-17th over all in this years draft. And what a quencidence in 1987 Reggie Miller was drafted 16th by the Pacers. As for graves, well he could crack the top 20, but I honestly see him going top 5 in the second round. And as for the Pacers season, I see them finishing teh season with a draft pick any were from 11th-14th.

Hey brother Larry, i ain't the gm but I can see JO needs to go. I don't care you if you get a fathead of Magic Johnson and some of you sweet wine you make. Come on bro, can't you see our team chemistry is just like Indiana State and Springs Valley without JO. It is like them muskrats down in Paoli when JO is in there. Trade him or cut him. All pacer fans don't care no more!!!
I am perfectaly aware that in the past JO has been on fire, but not any more, because he doesn't fit coach O'Brien's system. Before this season started I tried to trade JO to the Lakers for Lamar Odem and Kwamie Borwn, but then when I held out for Andrew Binum in the deal, they just told me "Odem or Binum one or the other, not both". Then I receiently spoke with coach Jim O'brien and we both agreed to offer the Lakers JO and David Harrison for Andrew Binum and Kwamie Brown. But even with out Harrison in the trade, it put them over the cap and they told us that although they would love to see the trade go though we were going to have to take some guy from over sees with 5 years left on his contract (about like Tinsely's) in the trade in order for it to go through. So since I didn't want to make the mistake of overpaying someone a fifth time to play for my team, I had no choice but to back out of that one. However, as of now I am strongly considering either trading JO to the Bulls for Ben Gorden & Ben Wallace, JO and David Harrison to the Kings for Ron Artest and Brad Miller, or just JO to the Rockets for T-Mac. But for these trades to go through, I'm going to need the approval of Jim O'brein and one of the other franchises.
