Why is Superflick still on this team? Are the Pacers trying to lose on purpose?

I'm sure his knee is injured, but probably not severely enough to sit out. Personally, I think he should have been suspended after that OT performance when he took every shot besides a MD tip in (after Tinsley missed). Regardless, I feel that the coach is to blame. No coach should allow one player (especially Tinsley) shoot miss after miss in OT.

More lies from the Pacers. I will have to have Mr. Tinsley on my talk show sometime over the summer, so the TRUTH CAN BE TOLD!

Is this the type of player that will lead this team to success? He can't keep his own life straight, how can he lead a team?

In my mind he should be gone.

Hey - I don't have season tickets anymore either.

Jamal is a role model, a man of trust and integrity, he has character and is a franchise player for the organization, I support him and the Pacer organization 100%

The only time I care to read ANY news about Tinsley is when he becomes an EX-Pacer!

When an organization covers for a player's behavior like that, they're sending the message that it's okay to behave that way in the first place. The Pacers have to stand for doing things the right way, no matter what, before they will ever approach the success of the Miller era. Take your lumps, clean house, and win back the respect of your fans to start with.

The Miller area? Is that the era when we allowed a player to lie on national TV and plea to find the arsonist that burning his 10 million dollar house to the ground only to find out that his wife did it because he was having an affair with the Watson's girl ara? Is that the era you are referencing?

Pacers = tax right off. If the Simons wanted this organization to thrive, they would have changed leadership a long time ago. Do you really think an owner like, Mark Cuban, would have put up with this kind of, off the floor, on the floor, behavior? I supported the Pacers in the good times of reggie and the bad times of the reggie era, but not anymore. SAD
