Dude chill, your taking his comments which are all pretty decent one's and replying with whining and crying. You may make 1 decent point but the rest is a bunch of b!tching and moaning.<quoted text>Did I say he THE premier player in the league punk? Take your sissy azz to WNBA postings! He plays power forward, power forwards score, get rebounds and play good defense, most aren't known for their passing skills. You may know playstation basketball but you know nothing about real life basketball.
JO is a decent player, the only reason he is an all-star is because he has nobody else on the pacers to share the spotlight with. I've been preaching the *trade JO* speal for months now, not because I don't think the pacers could use him, but because he is the only person we could attach Tinsley to in a trade where we could still get 2 or 3 decent players.
No matter what everyone says, the root of the problem in indy isn't JO, it isn't CRC, it isn't even Bird/Walsh. Its the inconsistent play of our gaurds, aka Tinsley. The previously mentioned people all have helped the problem but the pacers real problems for the past several years has been a lack of a good gaurd.
No matter how many blocks, points, rebounds JO gets, unless we have a true general leading the team, the Pacers have no chance of success. I would love to keep JO on the Pacers, but for the team to be able to trade for the type of players we need to turn this franchise around, he's gotta go.
