Leave the mascot out of this. That suit is without any merit, period. The Pacers (and Fever) tape EVERY mascot all game long, just to preclude any lawsuits. They have a tape of ths supposed incident, and only 5% of what the plaintiff says is accurate. The mascot did absolutely nothing, and it's just A a sleezeball trying to make a buck.<quoted text>
Agree that not all were charged...but I count McLeod, S Williams, Tinsley, Daniels and SJax and the mascot (who allegedly tackled someone last March and is being sued). It may be a stretch on the mascot...but hey, she/he's part of the Pacers "act" on the floor too! Actually we could add more if we go back to the Artest days. I'm willing to support them regardless of their record. But I have a hard time with players that just aren't very likable especially when the Pacers just don't seem to be doing anything to improve their effort or attitude.

I am a fan, and always will be. That's why I feel it is my duty as a fan to demand more from the team I support. On a side note, I do agree with you about the Golden State trade. However, if you are going to lose and/or be mediocre, why not do it with quality guys? Out of the playoffs is out of the playoffs! You can go 30-52 with rookies and league-minimum veterans, so why not clean house? Who on the Pacers is really worth keeping, and why???

I think most of them are worth keeping, and Tinsely won't be reupped when his contract is up. Not because of off-court issues, but lack of consistent play.

A trade that would make sense talent and money wise!!!!!
Indiana would get:
Lamar Odom: Gifted all around talent but injury prone. Salary:$13,524,000.
Kwame Brown: Great size for post defender/rebounding w/ one year left on contact. Salary:$9,075,000.
Jordan Farmar: Young w/ potential to be a pretty good NBA guard. Improves every year. Salary:$1,009,560.
Lakers would get:
Jermaine Oneal: One of the top 5 PF's in game. Been injured latey but it's because his back was sore carrying the Pacers for the past 3years. Salary:$19,710,000.
Mike Dunleavy: streaky shooter, was former 1st round pick. still young w/ room to grow. Salary:$8,219,008
Give up salaries:
Lakers:$23,608,560 if give up 1st 08' 1st rounder +3mil =$26,608,560
Laker starting Lineup:
pg- Fisher..... Jarvis can be decent backup
sg- Kobe.....Evans or Sasha ar backups
sf- Luke.....w/ Rad and Dunleavy make team w/ one of the top SF tandems
pf- O'neal.....Turiaf is best energy guy on team. Rad can play some here.
c- Bynum.....Mihm will back up and O'neal may play here a lot also. Bynum may not be ready to start.
Pacer starting lineup:
pg- Tinsley.....nice backup in Farmar
sg- Daniels.....Granger can play some sg
sf- Granger.....or Odom can start there
pf- Odom.....Murphy or Brown can start here too
Sounds like the best deal for both sides. Try tell Bird this one Mitch... Please!!!!
