Okay coach, it's your team. Just be sure to pat Tinsley down for weapons each practice.

God. We're in so much trouble. I was doing fine when I forgot the Pacers even existed, but then they started showing commercials with Jim O'Brien during Colts games, so that ended that nice dream.

Let's see what Tinsley does with this show of confidence and leadership? I bet JO is seething. He'll consider this a slap in the face and out the window will go his "team player" and "I'm all for what's best for the team", comments. Get ready for another rocky season Pacer fans. My family won't be watching.

YEAH WELL GOOD LUCK WITH THAT MAYBE IF YOU CAN KEEP HIM OUT OF CLUBS AT 3 IN THE AM AND PAT HIM DOWN EVERYTIME HE COME AND GOES ANYPLACE YOU MIGHT BE ABLE TO DO SOMETHING WITH HIM. COURSE DON'T EXPECT HIM TO PLAY ALL SEASON CAUSE HE'LL PROBABLYGFET A COLD OR SOMETHING. I DOON'T THINK HE'S PLAYED A FULL SEASON SINCE THEY GOT HIM!!! AL YOU HAVE ON THIS TEAM IS A BUNCH OF WANT A BE THUGS WELL GOOD LUCK WITH THAT CAUSE I FOR ONE AM DONE WITH THE PACERS!!!!!!!!!!

I'm going to wait and see what OBrien can do with this team. Keep in mind - Carlisle is gone! A new coach will have a big impact on how this team plays.

I completely disagree with your comment "Unbelievable" - JO will NOT be upset about OBrien putting the offense in Tinsley's hands.

I understand why so many of you are frustrated with the Pacers, I really do. But why do you still read articles about the team when they're printed ... only to read the article and then post a comment saying you hate them and/or won't support the team anymore. Why do you even read the article if you don't care?

I have a hunch you do care.

pacers can talk all they want,but untill they walk the walk they suck in my eyes.larry bird is most of the problem with this team.he looks the other way when something is wrong and then comes up with a pathetic statement for the news and the fans.bird is like a father who thinks his kids can`t do any wrong!

Gloom and doom from all you naysayers. I for one am excited about a "new" season and a new start with Coach O'Brien and Dick Harter. We didn't like what happened last season but we're going to give them a chance to show what they can do. We'll be in the stands supporting the Pacers as always.

trl - why do you read the article if you hate the pacers so much? I'm surprised you even clicked on the article.

emosig - MLB Playoffs? why are you reading about the NBA?

I hope OBrien can make a difference. Nice positive article.

Yes, maybe O'Brien will bring out the best in this unit.

I agree that if you hate the team, then just stay out of here. What's the point with all the negativity? The article was about the team and provided good insight into how things are changing for the better.
why are you here

The point guard drives the team. He's THE most important player on the court.

Remember our last Olympics team?

Filled with Superstar power forwards, centers, shooting guards, but lacking a playmaker?

Remember how they were smoked?

Thus it will be for any NBA team who's floor general is a misfit.

Example A: Jamaal Tinsley.

hey TRL, stay out of here, ok? Your negativity is not wanted. Why read the article if you hate the team???????

The article was upbeat, and focused on OBrien's genuine attempt at changing things around here. GO PACERS

What does it say about our coach when he's the only coach in the league that has had trouble defending Tinsley?

OBrien may bring out the best in Tinsley. You never know what a new coach will bring. At least it's not the same 'ol thing with Carlisle again.
