At first I thought Mike was an Idiot, but I see that you are too. Any team can win a game or two without their star, I hope J.O. just shuts it down for the rest of the year so you idiots can see how valuable he is to this team. It's funny that everyone in the league thinks that he is a top 10-15 player in the entire league, but you Nap-Town idiots want to get rid of him. Donnie has the right idea, build the team around J.O. It's not him, it is the dead weight that he's carrying on his back that's making him look bad. Somehow the team has got to get a point and a shooting guard in the off season, because Tinsley has obviously quit and Dunleav(should change name to PleasLeavy)y is just garbage. Come on Larry get some players around J.O. and stop trying to act like he is part of the problem, he's part of the solution.
He's got talent, no doubt. But he doesn't talk or act like a leader, therefore the efforts to build the team around him are suspect at best. And I really don't understand why we can't express opinions here without resorting to calling each other silly names. Grow up. I imagine if you were standing in front of us face to face you wouldn't be rude enough to call us idiots, so why do it hiding online?

In the Bay Area we called him Dunnuthing and often combined him with Murphy (due to their horrendous contracts) as MurphLeavy. Perhaps you can carry that torch, as well as the contracts! And, pardon me for almost forgetting, THANK YOU!!!
Warriors 2007 record with starting five of Davis, Richardson, Harrington, Jackson and Biedrins = 3-0
(includes road win in Detroit)
At least you Pacers fans don't have to be subjected to Dunleavy's stupid long hair and rubberband joke he sported here.I agree with Mike...THANKS!!We'll take JO off your hands for ya too!!!

Ok, we have 2 problems on this team.
JO and Tinsley.
The problem with Tinsley is that he is way overpaid for lack of talent, and anybody with a similar contract to his is so much better, no other team would be willing to make the trade.
Solution to this problem? Do a 2 person trade with JO and Tinsley. Yeah we will take a hit and only get 1 good guy and a no-name or 2, but if the Pacers get rid of JO (just ordinary) then the team can focus on TEAM ball again.
either way, we need changes or else the few remaining fans will roll over and die as well.
You hit the nail on the head. Take a short term step back for the long term good of the franchise.
