why is it that no one ever realizes that the only reason that JO is always injured is because the team doctors tell him that he can play when he shouldn't. So he just aggrevates his knee again.Also i'm from Connecticut and after reading these posts i feel like i'm a bigger pacer fan than people who live in Indiana.

I really get tired of all the "thug" comments. Tinsley has straightened up since the last episode and Shawne made a young kid mistake. The real "thugs" like Artest and Jackson are gone. Isn't that what all the "fans" wanted? Harrison just does dumb things and will continue to do them. We have a lot of good players (not great players) who work hard. Why can't we appreciate their effort instead of running them down all the time? I hate to lose, but I'm still watching them on TV and am still a fan.
Your right on it...even though I would welcome back Artest. I see these guys with their heads down and someone needs to get in their faces and motivate them. Know any good leaders??

Bringing Artest back would help. I think the fans here liked Ron. He did some silly things but most of them were harmless. The brawl incident was unfortunate but when you just got into a scuffle with Ben Wallace, no telling what one would do. A brief question maybe someone out there can answer. Were any inditements ever brought against Ben Wallace's brother for the sucker punches he was throwing in the stands?

Let Yao get 30 but make him work his ass off to get it. As long as we keep their guards and wings out of the paint from dribble penetration and keep Battier and crew off the boards then whatever Yao gets can be absorbed.
The drought ends tonight. Get the W.
Yeah. Uh-huh. Air ball. Maybe we can beat San Antonio, or Orlando, ya think?

You are right, Dan! You are a bigger Pacer fan than most of us in Indiana. Last week JO claimed his knee was injured and he was finished for the season. Now he says he was taken out of context (though quoted) and may be back, after getting a third medical opinion in NYC. Two weeks ago, Tinsley was reportedly out with a knee injury although players acknowledged he was suspended subsequent to an argument with the Pacer's coach. The Pacer's PR department should be working in the White House for all the spin and denials coming from it. It's just one part of a really shoddy "DIS" organization that has a lot of voices saying different things. One can only hope and pray that Larry Bird doesn't get duped into trading away our '08 pick during All Star weekend. Everyone knows, Bird is capable of making stupid trades. He will be a huge target.
