When Tinsley is one of the top two players on the team in shots attempted,
the Pacers most often lose.
When Tinsley has more assists in a game than shots, the Pacers generally win.
Our point guard should stick to what he is best at, penetrating and psssing.

O.K.--- For all you people that think our new players stink --- check out the stats: Murphy 22, Dunleavy 21, Diogu 15! Still think we got the worst of the trade? No way! It takes time to meld as a team with new players. I'm not saying that we are there yet, but we're on the way. We will have a hard road to hoe on this western road trip, but don't give up on the Pacers yet. I haven't.

The Pacers did much to pleasure their fans last night, especially the starting five. For me, two things stood out: 3 turnovers by the starting five, and the play of Mike Dunleavy. Dunleavy had an exceptional all-around game, but he became the first Pacer we've seen catch and shoot since Reggie and Peja. Apparently his teammates have learned where and when to deliver him the ball. He had great rhythm last night and I hope he can keep it going. If he can, I expect to see his game rise to the elite level in this league.

Why do you think Murphy and Dunleavy have a 90 mil contract. They both once in 10-15 games have games like this against a bad team. Go and look at his career and tell me when has he had impact on a game where the opponent was good and he carried his team to victory. This potential was the reason they have the contract they do.

Now, you guys will realize in enough time what that is all about. Others just want him to succeed so much, will never realize.

Dunleavy was the #3 pick, Murphy,#14, they both have potential, that is all they have. They will never live or play up to their contract.

Also, its amazing the defense the fans in Indy give to these two after only one win. Maybe you guys should also go get Mark Madsen, he will fit the profile of the players you guys want in Indy.

All the shit that Tinsley gets, regardless of his game, is because of his off the field stuff, but fans bring that on his performance

See above, and PLEASE, don't compare Dunleavy to Reggie, that should be an insult to the Pacer fans

Well I thought the Pacers would get the second longest lossing streak @ 12 in history Professional sports history behind the Boston Celtics @ 18, but I guess 11 does tie them with the St Lewis Blues NHL franchise @ 11 and for the record as far as I know here are the longest lossing streaks in Professional sports

1.06/07 Boston Celtics @ 18
2.St. Lewis Blues & Indiana Pacers @ 11
3.something like 9 or 10 games held by the 00/01 San Deago Chargers, I dunno they may have beat the #2 spot by like 1 game
4.8 games held by as far as I know the 05/06 Atlanta Braves, St. Lewis Cardinals and a few NFL franchise teams that win like 1-2 games per year.

BUT FOR THE RECORD WHO THE HELL CARES!!!!!!!!!!

Nothing against the ex-GSW guys. But they will have a good game as frequent as lunar eclipse. So, definitely take this and enjoy it while you can because they can't shoot straight 2/3 of the time. On the other hand, with everyone healthy and including Jax and AL in the starting lineup, GSW has been 6-0 recently.

Not bad but it took a wile to get a "w". I think the pacers could best utilize Jermaine at center and Murphy at power forward. I also realize that Jermaine prefers the power forward spot but I feel we would get more offense out of them that way. I guess thats just an after thought and I'm not the coach.

DON'T EVEN STOOP TO THE LEVEL OF MENTIONING PEJA IN THE SAME CATEGORY OR SENTENCE AS REGGIE. THIS IS A DISCRASE TO THE PACERS ORGANIZATION AND REGGIE!!! LETS START AT THE TOP REGGIE 18 YRS A HALL OF FAME CAREER ALL IN A PACER JERSEY!!! FIVE TIME NBA ALL-STAR, APPEARED IN SO MANY PLAYOFF GAMES. FOR SO LONG HE WAS THE FACE OF THE FRANCHISE!!! REMEMBER SPIKE LEE AND THE KNICKS...SO DO I!!!
NOW LETS DISCUSS PEJA AND HIS FORTY OR SO GAMES WITH THE PACERS. THATS RIGHT FORTY GAMES. HOW DOSE THAT COMPARE TO REGGIE'S 18 YR HALL OF FAME CAREER.. YEAH YOU GUESSED IT DOESN'T AND ALL OF THOSE PLAYOFF GAMES WITH THE PACERS. OH WAIT THATS RIGHT HE ONLY APPEARED IN ONE PLAYOFF GAME WITH THE PACERS THAT RIGHT JUST ONE!!! AND WHERE IS HE NOW, WITH THE HORNETS AFTER SIGNING A MULTI MILLION DOLLAR CONTRACT WITH THEM IN THE OFF SEASON!!!
FINALLY, TO DISCUSS MIKE DUNLEAVY I'LL AGREE WITH YOU HE CAN SHOT THE BALL AND SHOT IT WELL. BUT I DON'T BELIEVE HE CAN FIT INTO A CATEGORY WITH REGGIE EITHER. WILL HE SOMEDAY I WOULD LIKE TO THINK SO. BUT DUNLEAVY NEEDS TO BE MORE CLUTCH!!! THE BEST ATTRIBUTE REGGIE EVER HAD WAS DELIVERING A DAGGER AS THE SECONDS TICKED DOWN.

Nothing against Stephen Jackson... I mean what am i saying he's awful!!! HE 'S THE WORST PLAYER THE LEAGUE HAS EVER SEEN. Here is my impression of the man you call Jax. Jackson for 3 at the buzzer...no good air ball. Oh yeah do me a favor and call Oakland police...I mean...never mind they will be hearing from him soon enough.

Apparently Drew and Golden State Fan have a reading disability. The only comparison I made between Dunleavy and Reggie and Peja was his ability to catch and shoot. All great shooters catch and shoot, they don't hesitate. Prior to the Atlanta game Dunleavy was hesitating. I have to go back to Reggie and Peja to recall a Pacer who didn't hesitate before shooting, until Saturday night, that is. Catch and shoot is what I am talking about, and you two are talking about something else.

No need to call us names, yes we might have a reading disability, I don't know how I can prove or disprove that, but if you think Dunleavy reminds you of Reggie with the way they catch and shoot, we can take this one more further. Don't both of them wear socks under their sneakers. Yes, both Reggie and Dunleavy wear socks under their sneakers.
