I think the players have to put up a little bit more effort for the coach," said O'Neal. That's coming from a guy that is the biggest wussy for a big man, the one who said he didn't like the way Carlise coached but still play's the same as when Carlise coached. Camping in the lane! Not running! Worry about your team and your play not about a racist, chauvinistic pig named Isiah!

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!
The Pacers appear to be on track for the playoffs. Please find for me a single national publication that has described the Pacers as "laughingstocks". The Pacers aren't going to win a title this year, but they are hardly the disgrace you people have convinced yourselves to be the case.

No one liked playing for Carlisle. Ever wonder why the Pistons won the title the first year Carlisle was gone?

Pacers are a waste to this fine city. Everyone is being shot at, or firing at someone else. They are waisting our time and money and need to be shipped of to a different city. I suggest a city with a football team about as bad as they are. Maybe one where their football team gets in as much trouble as they do. I suggest Cincinatti or maybe Miami, their football team is bad enough, maybe the Pacers would look good for once.

First of all, someone who can't spell above a grade school level really has no right to express negative opinions about anyone else.

Second of all, you stated "Everyone is being shot at, or firing at someone else." So, one player out of 15 was shot at, and one player who actually plays in Golden State shot a gun. So, how does this exactly equal "everyone"?

If part of your argument is that "everyone is being shot at", and Indianapolis residents are the ones doing the shooting, then how does that qualify Indy as a "fine city"? Seems more than a bit hypocritical to me. And it seems you selectively forgot about our beloved Colts' past run-ins with the law. You're as big of a hypocrite as you are an idiot. And I hope you get syphilis.

Thomas went off the deep end a few yers back and started buying his own baloney. He was never much of a coach and he has proven htat he cannot build a team. He was such a fun player to watch. Sad, just sad.

HAHAHA at last we proved all you people who were saying the Pacers are the worst franchise in the league wrong. I for one feel like we are a top 15 team in the league, but we should ALL know for sure we are not the worst. I'm starting to think Miami is in bad shape, HOW COULD THEY BE they have the so-called most dominant player ever to go with one of the best guards in the league to go with one of the so-called best coaches ever. Jason Williams is a good leader, Haslem is a quality role player, and ZO is still a starter on most teams in the league. I feel like they have always wanted to enter the playoffs in the 8th spot and try to win it all and have that as their piggy-back. They should be in the top 5 every year with this squad. If the Pacers had that team and we were a bottom dweller THEN and only then would I be upset. GO PACERS every win is a good win, this IS our first year with this coach and system.

Pat Riley needs a smack in the face if he cant get that team to the playoffs. If they dont I'll feel like they missed on purpose. These Chicago Bulls are the same ones that swept them last year in playoffs? The Magic aren't as good as they look either, and if Lebron James can't get Zydrunas into the all-stars,he isn't the great team player most think he is. Holding the ball for the final 18 seconds just to pull a deep off-balance3 is not MVP nor Hall of Fame style to me. Also if they are up by 2/3 pts and James gets fouled he rarely makes both FTS.

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.
AMEN!!! Too bad that the Knicks have absolutely zero talent to trade for O'Neal...I'd love to see him in the blue and orange.

there are always multiple team deals that can be made in which we get a player or players from another team and they get NYs players
