The players have given up on their coaches, and themselves.
Marbury just downright sucks as player and person.

Let's see...the Pacers have a chance to move above 500. The Knicks are a bad team. The Pacers will play horrible and the Knicks will win. Tomorrow's quote in the paper will be "We played poorly, we didn't execute like we should have. They deserved to win."

I've heard Pacers fans complain a lot about their team over the past two seasons. Though there may be some character issues (Tinsley), at least your team plays hard and plays like they give a crap.
There is nothing worse than being a Knicks fan. They are the biggest joke of a franchise in professional sports. I miss the days of the rivalry, that was when the NBA was at its best.

NY and Indy have always been high rivals and many traded players (coaches) as well.
Game time..should be biz as usual.

"I think the players have to put up a little bit more effort for the coach," said O'Neal, who credits Thomas for helping make him the player he is today.

thats right, a cry baby, overrated and overpaid pansey. he is the reason why i am the player i am today which in translation means i am not held accountable for anything, like my former coach.

I hate to admit it but the Knicks were doomed when they hired Isiah Thomas. How does this idiot keep getting jobs ? He is coaching the team he hand built, who else could be at fault ?

"In (the New York) market, if you don't win in three or four years, people want some heads," Mavericks guard Eddie Jones told the Dallas Morning News last week. "It has nothing to do with Isiah. It has to do with the won-loss record."

When did they EVER win? Nothing good ever comes out of NYC. I wish them nothing but plagues and hexes and all around ineptness.

The Knicks are terrible & the laughing stock of the NBA and guess what... the Pacers are right behind them. Who care about this game between two teams who won't make the playoffs and hire db's to play basketball for them. I'd rather watch Purdue, Butler, IUPUI or yes even Indiana play (& I hate the Hoosiers). LOL!

I have to laugh at the posters who continually bash Jermaine O'Neal. Do they actually watch any of the games? While I have criticized O'Neal in the past for holding the ball and slowing down the offense, if you have paid attention to the last several games you have seen that Jermaine is doing a much better job of making his offensive move within the first 2 or 3 seconds after he accepts a pass in the lox w post. He is taking the ball to the hoop with both hands, like he did early in his career, and not relying on that fade-away jump shot as much. He takes more charges than any big man in the league and now that his knee is not bothering him as much he is able to get up and down the floor. While I am not convinced that O'Neal is the face of the future of the Pacers, let's give credit where credit is due. He played as hard as anybody on this team last season and he is playing pretty well right now. If you want to bash him that is your right, but to do so without acknowleging the fact that he is playing well is just plain ignorant. Even some of the national media types who (illogically) predicted the Pacers would finish at the bottom of the Eastern Conference are beginning to see their mistakes. Apparently at least they are watching the games.

If I were the Pacers, I wouldn't care about New York, I would concentrate on your team, winning games and not settling for a 500 record. Don't worry about another team's management.

Actually there has been very, very little national coverage (in a negative light) in regard to the Pacers troubles, but the national media rips on the Knicks seemingly every week. The only place that continually bashes the Pacers seems to be Indiana...

By the way the Pacers should make the playoffs pretty easily.

Like I've said many times in the past, if you don't care for the Pacers go post on a subject you might have some knowledge about, which is very limited I'm sure ...That being said lets go Pacers

Well put!!!! And its going to be awesome when Ike gets healthy in the next week, imagine him backing up Jermaine...what a coaches nightmare. I was all for seeing Jermaine traded, but I HIGHLY aggree he his not holding the ball in the post for the duration of the 24 second clock, he catchs, checks his options and drives hard...and if they were taking charges as a stat, he would lead the league.
Jermaine doesnt need to score 20+ points per game when you have Tinsley (yes Tinsley), Granger, Dunleavy and now Rush is getting his touch as well as Ike coming back.
