"That's some good weed you're smokin there Baldninja. I suppose you still believe in Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, and the Tooth Fairy. The Pacers first need to get rid of the person who drove the train to this wreck. It's hard to tell who's the Conductor and who's the Engineer, Bird or Walsh. Carlisle should be the first to go. He would be a great High School or small College Coach. His offensive skills would be in demand. Bring the ball down and throw it to your best player." - Chuck Roast

As usual, the smart-mouthed punks are too busy being sarcastic to actually contribute anything resembling constructive advise.

In my post, I didn't say they'd be able to work out a deal for Oden, BUT they should try as hard as they can to try to make it happen. If they can't make it happen, well, they've not lost anything by trying. As for trading for a later 1st round pick with players other than O'neal, that isn't unplausable at all. The mid to late round picks this year aren't going to be worth all that much, so you could probably get a late 1st rounder for Tinsley, believe it or not.

Good post. I couldn't agree more. Had Ben Wallace not have gone 'thug' on Artest and instigated that brawl, I firmly believe the Pacers would have won the East that year. Walsh and Bird were under tremendous pressure to dump Artest and Jackson for virtually nothing because the fans were so upset by their off-court antics. While I'm still not convinced Larry has what it takes to accurately judge NBA talent, Walsh is still a solid GM. I think his biggest mistake the past three years has been allowing Larry to make more and more of the basketball decisions.
Walsh obviuosly wants to retire and his hope was to groom Larry for the GM job and hopefully leave the franchise in good hands. This past season should be enough to convince Walsh he's made a mistake handing the Pacer kingdom's keys over to Bird and should either ask Larry to be the coach or find new employment. I don;t know if Walsh has the stomach for that, so perhaps the Simon's need to step in and swing the ax for Donnie? Carlisle has run his course and needs to move on as well.
One thing is for certain, it's going to take a few years for the Pacers to be competetive again and fans should be ready for some lean times.
good points, walsh needs to really be at the helm again, and offer bird another position, he's not cut for this one..tinsley, go bye-bye

LARRY THE LEGEND WAS A GREAT PLAYER. YES WE GOT TO THE FINALS BUT BIRD WASN'T A GREAT COACH. LARRY IS TERRIBLE AT EVALUATING TALENT. STARTED WITH CROSHERE BEING THE NEXT LARRY. HAVE WE HAD A GOOD PICK SINCE HE CAME ON BOARD? FIRE LARRY, SLOW BALL COACH, TRADE JERMAINE!!( I GOT TO WIN). REGGIE THOUGHT ABOUT LEAVING BUT DIDN'T. DID JERMAINE LEARN A THING FOR REGGIE? I WAS A FAN IN THE 80'S. LOVED THE 90'S TEAMS. LET DONNIE SEE IF HE CAN PUT US BACK WHERE WE WAS BEFORE HE GETS OUR FOREVER THANKS FOR THE TEAMS OF THE 90'S AND RETIRES. I BET THE CHASE FOR THE DOLLAR A FAN BRINGS IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN WINNING AND WE STUCK WITH 35-47 TEAMS. WHAT DID THE BULLS DO AFTER MKE LEFT. THEY FELL FOR MANY YEARS DUE THE THEIR GM. WE GOT THE SAME TYPE PERSON, HIS NAME IS LARRY.

I think Mike Dunleavy will be an all star next year. Murphy is a monster on the boards and Ike is on a path for stardom. Stay the course, the future is sweet. Get a new coach, pull the pieces together and its playoff time again!
