My point about Kareem is that even though he's not a savior and has some areas to improve, considering the other trade/draft fiascos this team put us through, the Rush signing is a step in the right direction.
We got a guy who at least fills a need (shooting), is hungry and we only have to pay minimal cash for 1 year.
When you mess something up this bad (we've all been there)... it takes time and one good decision at a time to make it better. We're several good decisions away from fixing this, but encouraging nonetheless.
Question: Why is everyone so high on Bynum? What has he done in LA playing alongside Kobe?
MOST importantly Rush CHOSE THE PACERS and the coach to play for when he did have an offer from both Miami and Denver, 2 teams with multiple future hall-of-famers

Indiana's best shot is not next year's lottery pick.(These tend to be guys with a year of college who are 3-4 years away from playoff quality basketball and often do not pan out as top quality pros.) Nor is it expecting to steal a bunch of talent in a trade for O'Neal. Nor is it it in signing some high priced high profile free agent. It is to have existing players develop. The Pacers didn't get a draft pick but they have lots of young guys who need to develop and raise their game a level or two, Granger, Diogu, Williams and to some extent Dunleavy have promise to be first level players and people like Daniels, Rush and McLeod at least to be serviceable role players. The league is full of players who have had some knocks in their careers before they made it to the top. The trick is to find the right ones, get the right combination and coach so as to breing out the best. It is not a sure thing but it is not a lost cause either.
Dunleavy may have tallent, jsut not @ guard practically the only position the pacers need.

Sorry bout that, I just found it out today. There were a bunch of people telling me he was a forward. Trading the 1st round pick next season would be a bad idea if Gordon is available. And for the record I thought this time the pacers would learn their listen about trading away draft picks, but they oviously didn't because they just traded next season's second round pick to Miami. But then again, it could be top 10 protected like the one involved in the Harrington trade.
The traded away their 2nd round draft pick of 2009, not next year.

Why is it that the pacers always seem to get someone elses problem children?

Jerry, I have news for you.. Pro sports is filled with "PROBLEM CHILDREN" the questions is how much are you willing to deal with? Some have far fewer problems than others, but all have problems.. I think with recent events in the past with the Pacers, they are now looking at high quality guys, something they probably didn't do in the past, they simply looked at talent.. There is something to be said about high character guys and I think we have them now.. only time will tell...
