Uh, the rumor was that Reggie was going to come back and play for DALLAS, not Indiana. And FYI Dallas is the top team in the league. It will never happen though.

And I hope the quip about Warren Central was just a joke. The Pacers may be struggling but they would still dominate any *college* team in the country. High school is just laughable.

Tinsley must have hurt his sore leg out clubin in the wee hours of the morning.
JO's pain is probably similar to the pain we fans have with the Pacers!
Enough is enough...
Even Reggie couldn't help the Pacers!
They need a team of Psychologists.

Tinsley will be alright. He sustains more injuries during a typical weekend clubbing than he does on the court.

So if Reggie's available, let's go get him and put him in the uniform he belongs in. I guarantee you: Automatic Eastern Conference contention.

Really confused about why we are talking about Tinsley and Miller instead of the headline. Guys do you see what is happening? Isn't it great?? A multimillionaire actually playing when he is hurt instead of sitting on the side and crying like a big baby? Sorry but if I made the millions that they make it would be hard to keep me from dressing out and playing. It's good to see a player, even if it just happens this one time, actually worrying about winning.

Wish he wouldn't play with pain.
It is painful enough for us to watch him when he is healthy with his sorry a** 10 foot away from the basket post up turn and fling the ball somewhere towards the red ring.
Sometimes he makes an awesome move in the low post, but for the most part this strategy needs to be scrapped. Face the basket and take a good shot.
Still happy w the deal

In addition to all of the obvious reasons that I'm glad Jax is gone has anyone noticed how badly Al has played in GS? Has anyone one noticed that Cabages doesn't play in GS?

This from the SF Chronicle:
Memo to Al: Lose weight, rebound more

Warriors coach Don Nelson wants Al Harrington to drop about 10 to 15 pounds, so he's having the forward run before and after practices to get in shape....
... Some concern is also popping up about Harrington's rebounding, or lack thereof. He's never been great on the boards, especially on the defense end, where his career average is a lean 4.0 rpg.

yo first off your rite o'neal is playing threw pain and its great cause he wasnt expected to play against kings and he still delievered about the only guy who really showed up 19 points 9 boards 6 blocks. and first off yeah pacers r on and off but they would reck and high shcool or college team they still have 6th seed in east so they aint as bad as some of u say. and miller is my favorite id love to see him come back to indiana cause there my favorite team, but truth is mavs r looking really good wouldnt be suprised if they won the championship this year. miller cant do anyhting to hurt his career he deserves a ring after 18 years only getting there once.

JO's toughed through more than just physical pain. Hopefully he can remain tough throughout this season and until the dust settles from the off-court drama.

yeah they got a bunch of off the court crap going on wit Tinsley and Daniels. i think if they stay healthy they will be good Tinsley has not been able to finish a season in a while but hes doing good wit that this year.

Good Lord! Now I actually want JO not to play because I dont want him to risk getting a much larger injury and missing a larger amount of games.

Love me some Reggie, but he's not just gonna come back after a yr off and play to the top of his level. There is a reason he retired.

well see i think they should have drafted Marcus Williams this year cause Tinsley is always injured but this year hes been pretty healthy. what annoys me is when hes off hes really off. but sometimes he delivers i think they will draft a point guard this year since Darrel Armstrong is very old and wont be able to be a backup anymore
