Sean Williams has tremendous upside , potential & athleticism...originally last year they thought about seding him down to the D league but as the injuries mounted, he was needed to fill some minutes , toward the end of the year he was showing some potential...I would try to hang on to him , Granger (of course), Ike Diogue , maybe Marquise Daniels..maybe and maybe that PG we got as a consolation gift for taking on the dynamic duo of Murphy/Dunleavy..(the billion dollar babies)& unless you get somebody or sombodies really good and or affordable ..you keep Jermaine...Jermaine just wants to be happy & who can blame him...He IS a good player, just maybe not the leader Reggie was...hard shoes to fill!!!I am really disappointed in the draft. The Pacers could have taken a point guard instead of some guy they won't see for a few years. It's not like we're loaded with talent, and can afford a player to develop.
Besides, I think we made the development mistake with Bender, and Primo Brezec, who, by the way, is playing for a better Charlotte Bobcats team.
What's the scoop with last year's first rounder? Shawn Williams? Any talent there? From when he played last year, he looked pretty weak.

Move Butler's team to Conseco. They're fun to watch.
Don't the Pacers have a team physician who can change the psych medication dosages for Tinsley & Daniels?

Sorry, JO isn't leadership material. I'm not saying he's a bad person or anything. You either have a nature for leadership, or you don't -- he don't.
Just because you're a "good" player -- when not injured -- doesn't necessarily mean you should be the team "leader."
So, who should lead the team from a player perspective if not JO? Tinsley - um, no. Sorry, unfortuantly I can't answer that question....
This is the biggest team deficit imo......no leader on the floor; and, not potential leader exists on the Pacer roster (the coach can't do it all.....you need a player-leader too, or you're in deep poo).
Maybe that's why the players are all running around wild (besides being immature and possessing low "emotional intelligence")-- no team leader to be accountable to (?).
Please, someone tell me who should be this team's leader. I ask with all sincerity.

well I disagree there. Wallace is only 1-2 inches taller than Ron , but I'm pretty sure Ron weighs more with LESS body fat %, Ron is like a mad pit bull...would have been good though...but I guess we'll never know now.(but still is possible..as in they are both still playing so who knows)
#77 Jul 4, 2007
Agreed on all counts. Yes I alluded to the fact JO is not leader material as evidenced last year . As far as someone currently a Pacer leading them , its hard to say without seeing how they are in practice , thats where you'd see who commands attention & or respect and has the mind-set to go along with it.I know Granger is still young (but at the present, is our future)maybe TRY him or maybe they need to try to find someone with that capability in their "search" during free agency...which will probably end with the Pacers staying status quo...fear the worst,hope for the best?
#78 Jul 4, 2007
Thank you! You make some relevant points. I didn't think of Granger -- hopefully he will grow into a leadership role naturally.
And, yes, I will hope for the best, but am a bit concerned. Unlike some, I actually think Jim O'Brien is going to surprise some people with his ability here in INDIANA!!(watch and see.....)
Thanks for your post.

yes sir I agree there as well there are some (hopefully)Positives & I personally believe O'Brien is the biggest , I he will surprise those who doubt him , I just cant get over the personell decisions from a couple years back to this point , I honestly hope Rush works out but I have alot of doubt about him. Thank you for your post as well , enjoyed it & hopefully this is a turn for the better for our Pacers..(tring to stay Positive here...good day
