It is amazing! One of their thugs misses a court date and there are over a hundred comments about him on LIO. Now we get a statement from Larry that the Pacers are going to be better. With what? The way things are going half the team will be up on charges before the season starts and on some sort of suspension. I for one will NEVER spend money to go to a game nor will I waste time watching them or any other Thug Basketball League game on TV.

The suck and will continue to do so until they hold their players to a higher standard and actually go out and get some high quality, professional players!

Either Larry is hitting the bottle too much or he knows something that we don't know. I suspect it's the former.

Better than last year?? Is that really so hard to do? This team still has one problem chld left in Tinsley, maybe after his contract is out and they can ditch him, cna they actually focuse on being better. What a sad state the Pacers have become, and with the Colts and Fever doing what they do, it makes the Pacers look that much worse.

LET'S SEE IT THEN. I know that if they open it up a little, it will be more interesting, a more potent offense, and happier players. The previous years were trying to run a stagnant set offense/defense with the wrong style players. Hopefully this transistion works. Some of these players have a lot to prove. It does fit Tinsley better, Granger could emerge, but whether O' Neal can stay healthy with a faster game is yet to be seen. And can we stay out of the Police Blotter??? WE'LL SEE.

My 4year old son just started playing basketball last year. I guess you could say he is a better basketball player this year as well!

Geez Larry "Nostradamus" Bird they couldn't get much worse!

I'll have to take his word they are better than last year because I'm not watching a singe second of their happy horse shit on the court. I get to see to much of their happy horse shit IN the court.

Trying to change the subject away from Williams' big fat ugly mistake this morning. Have fun babysitting, Larry, because that's what you're doing with your whiny brat Pacers.

I personally am glad that the "bandwagon" fans will not be at the games. I have been going to Pacer games since 1973. I saw the bandwagon fill up in 2000. Some thing with the Colts. The REAL fans were there during the 3-13 seasons. Now I see people with #1 Colt fan vanity plate that looks only a couple yrs old. Big Surprise!
