This is like the team from hell. Overpaid players, who underachieve and who are injured at least half of the games.
Add the fact that most of them are signed to ridiculously long term contracts. The
"icing on the cake" is the off-court behavior of some our so-called star players. There isn't a star on the team.

I hope someday, I can go to Coseco Fieldhouse and witness a team to be proud of. Maybe, God forbid, an NBA champion calibar team. Granger stays, but send the rest of them on a slow boat to China. A real slow boat.

"we have some experience being without jermaine", says o'brien. wish it would've read, "even when he is on the floor we have experience being without jermaine".

Larry really screwed up in regards to JO now that Jermaine has played himself out of any possible trade value he may have had in the offseason. This team has limited talent and i'm not seeing light at the end of this tunnel. Unless something happens that drastically alters the makeup of the team I'm resigned to the fact that there may be years of bad Pacers basketball to come

Does anyone actually think JO will opt out of his contract? I still think he can be traded, but it must be done quickly since I'm not sure how much time Isiah has left in New York. JO, JT, and DH must go.

I really like the way the Pacers are playing this year. They are fun to watch but it is time to trade Jo and DH for guys that can keep up the pace. Lets all remember that Payton Manning and the Colts were 3-13 during the first year. By making a few right moves, the Pacers will not only be fun to watch but will also win alot of games. Keep up the good work Jim!

The longer JO is out of the lineup, the longer OBrien can start someone who wants to play and knows the meaning of teamwork.

I had season tickets, then dropped to going to 20 to 25 home games a year, now have no interest.

The City should try and get reimbursed for the expense of Conseco Fieldhouse, built when ownership and management cared about a quality product. Now, there is NO indication that Out Going Donnie Walsh, incoming Larry Bird, or any currrent players care. A disgrace.
