I would have never known this unless it was a story on StarNews...Pacers, you're a disgrace, get out of town and bring another professional Hockey, Basebal, or even Lacrosse for this matter...you are a disgrace to this city and by far the worst role models to our troubling youth as it is.... I used to have more respect for Larry Bird, it's sad to see he's ruining a legendary reputation...

troy murphy starting+mike dunleavy starting= 110+ points for the opponent. C'mon Rick! It's happened at least 10 times this season! Quit embarrassing Indiana with bad coaching decisions!

POLL: If the Pacers lose all of their remaining games, how many ping pong balls do you think they'll get?

Sounds like my friend sees this team clearly in all that sunshine, Rick is a college coach, this is why Motown got rid of him. we now see the real coach of the pacers was Mike Brown. Bird was first brought in to sell seats, but those days are over. we need a new front office! Mark Jackson would be a perfect start..........

...And with the Pacer loss coming up on Friday at Orlando, the season will be officially O V E R.

I think JO was quoted as saying if they dont beat NJ and Magic, they dont deserve the playoffs. I give him credit for being honest.

I'm a diehard fan, but if the team cant beat the other "bad' teams in the East, they wont go anywhere in playoffs...and really should not expect to be there.

This has been another tough year. At least we werent like Boston or the Bucks and out of the hunt early on.

I bet the problem is the fieldhouse. It's too small and needs to be torn down and a new larger facility built. Maybe another dome to compliment Lucas Oil stadium. Just raise taxes and implode these stuctures when they're a few years old.

Come on! I don't care if O'Neal would have played they would still lose...They are a pathetic team with a pathetic coach and front office...Murphy and Dunleavy-2 less than average, overpaid, former bench warmers STARTING...THEY SHOULDN'T EVEN BE IN THE NBA...I KNOW MANY HIGH SCHOOL PLAYERS THAT CAN BEAT THEM...Trade Murphy, Dunleavy, Dilo, TO LAKERS FOR 1 GOOD PLAYER...

All Rick Carlisle had to do the last 20 games was have his team go 10 wins , 10 losses ! Who picks the players to start the game ?? Who makes the adjustments during the game ?????? If I only had one guess ( who is smarter than a fifth grade pacer fan ) I would say Rick Carlisle !!! Ding...Ding....Ding... I'm a winner .... but my prize is one I cannot mention on this blog as the star will not allow it to appear in print !!!

It was suppose to be a wonderful 40th season:
...alas, the bands are playing somewhere, the children are singing with joy , while many have gathered to drink fine wine , but in "Pacer Nation" ... sorrow is all one feels as a once proud franchise withers and dies upon the N.B.A vine !
