Troy has had trouble with his achilles before. Last year he had trouble. That's one reason GS was happy to give him to us.

Daniels has a bad knee. That's why Dallas got rid of him.

Same old story. How long will the Pacers keep taking on players that no other team wants.

Give Ike Diogu ALL of Murphy's playing time. Its time to get some redemption from that trade!!!

"Harrison expected back in three days".

I think I have heard that about 90 time since we drafted this underachiever. Grow up Mr. Harrison.

Good, he is a terrible excuse for a basketball player. Notre Shame graduate, too.

Don't forget that Tinsley only made it through one preseason game without having his first injury. This is only the beginning!!

So...what else is new?

Maybe the NBA should negotiate with the players union to stipulate that player's contracts are paid "workman's comp" style. If you come to work and perform, you get full pay. If you get hurt and can't perform you only collect 60%. It works for people making $8-15 per hour and they have to find a way to get by until they return to work...I'm sure that guys making millions per year could "get by" on 60% of their wages as well.

Yes, I'm aware it can't & won't happen...and of all the legalities involved. I'm just venting...I'm frustrated...and I'm sick of hearing about Pacer players having to be in a courtroom...and always nursing injuries.

Who is responsible for all the bad trades? Why would Indiana trade its #1 draft pick to Atlanta for Al Harrington, who is then traded for a couple Golden State benchwarmers and their $100 million contracts? How can management make so many idiotic decisions? Larry Bird is too stupid for words. He has pea mush and oatmeal for a brain. Someone needs to get the word to Mr. Bird. RESIGN OR BE FIRED! It is beyond comprehension that nothing has been done to get rid of him.

David Harrison, eat your wheaties, stretch those hammies, tape those ankles, wear that brace, whatever you need to do to stay healthy. Your career depends on it. You have an upside, but injuries and a whistle magnet will no doubt hamper your progress until you take it upon yourself to change things.

Bird must still be around because while the "money" behind the Spacers was made by very smart men in the business world, they're just as stupid as Larry when it comes to the Not Basketball Anymore league.

Injuries all the time? I think we need to make sure these guys are eating healthy and stretching. Are they smoking a lot of marijuana or drining all night? Why are the Pacers the only team with a new starting line-up every freakin night!

I've been a Blue & Gold fan all my life and I always will be until the day i die. I can't come on this board and bash these guys over and over. It shows no real support...just a band wagon mentality when they're doing good and jumping off when their doing bad.

Support your team...good or bad. One day this team will turn it around and compete for a title. They're going to stink it up for a few seasons, but I'll keep watching and keep hoping they'll finally get the right guys like they had in the 90's.
