Hard to argue thus far. His scoring average is his lowest since the 2000-01 season, but he leads the league in blocks and could average a career high in rebounds.

HARD TO ARGUE FROM ANY STANDPOINT. HE IS NOT THE LEADER THAT THEY EXPECT HIM TO BE. HE NEEDS TO GET SOME ENERGY. HE IS VERY IMMATURE. BUT WHO CARES ABOUT THOSE PACERS ANYMORE.

I don't know why you guys would give up Al Harrington for any of the guys you picked up from us. Maybe I am naive, but overblown contracts, unatheletic players limited to only certain things. Maybe it was just to get rid of Jackson, who I don't think is a good player but will play right now because of J-Rich, but wouldn't it be just cheaper to pay him to go away. Oh, thanks by the way for cleaning our mess

The Pacers should trade O'Neal and start the rebuilding process because in the end they aren't a championship team. Huge mistake for letting go Croshere and Johnson especially with that 16 million dollar expiring contract on Croshere.

man O'Nealis not the player he use to be four years ago. They need to hurry up and trade him. They always went to the playoffs with him but this year is different. Man thy're not going nowhere with or without him point blank. So what they need to do is trade him.The question is who will they get in return for him?

I agree with you on that one why did they let him go and Johnson. that was stupid so they nopt even a playoof contender totell you the truth unless O'Neal can lead them which I know he can.

The fair weather fans from out of state (MA and FL) don't have a clue... We're back to playing some good, solid fundemental basketball. This new team will actually run more. Like Bird said... You can't run of you don't get rebounds... Check out Baby Al's stats in the Lakers game: 43 minutes = 1 rebound! Pathetic...

Just wait untill Jack starts taking guys on the team out for dinner and drinks, then your team can pay him to go away.

You folks enjoying Dunleavy yet?

Looks like he had a typical Dunleavy game last night - 1 for 7 shooting with 3 turnovers.

Thank you so much for taking this bum off of our hands. Oh, Harrington had 29, going 10 for 14 last night.

Thanks again, Indy. When you miss the playoffs in the soft Eastern conference, I'm sure Dunleavy will be a big reason why

they need to keep ONeal but let it be clear to him that he is no longer a number 1 option on a team and seek out a true 1 option such as a Ray Allen or Michael Redd as examples.
You have Oneal and a Ray Allen on a team with an intelligent coach and we will be in good hands.
When you have players like Granger on a rookie contract and a center like foster who is a very good rebounder and tinsley, all guys who dont make much you dont really have alot of finances to worry about I would think and they all make excellent ROLE PLAYERS.
Keep oneal but demote him and get a true star on the team, Oneal is just not a number 1 option on a team anymore and never was.

Bringing Darrel Armstrong to the team is the smartest thing the Pacers have done for a long time!
He's the real team leader and motivator!
