Well, charges have been flied against Jackson. Big surprise.
http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/news/story?id=2621509

Do you think it's time for the Pacers to move forward and get rid of Jackson? We are seriously turning out to be the Minnesota Vikings of the NBA. I've been reading articles in the offseason about how he's improved his attitude, and he's going to work harder, etc.. etc... and it's just all crap.

I think it's time Walsh & Bird finally make a stand and cut him. Sure he's a good player, but he's seriously not worth it. I say send him packing and give one or more of the young guys a better chance to develop.

cut him? thats taking it too far, maybe a suspension or a loss of minutes but they need him for depth reasons in the playoffs, not to mention his experience

IF he is guilty, and that hasn't been proven yet, it may not be an issue.  He is now in violation of his probation from Detroit, and one of the charges is a felony.

Let us also not forget that this is an election year for the prosecutor pressing charges.  

This spells B A D for Jackson.

If he is proven innocent, you might find a minor trade for him.

If he's convicted then his contract can be voided under the CBA. If he's acquitted then the Pacers are stuck with him unless they buy him out. No way is a team going to trade for him with the current scandal looming overhead.

Cutting him would be taking it too far. He still has skill that, when he behaves, he can give to the team, but for now, maybe give him a serious suspension, maybe try to trade him later in the year when all this stuff becomes a smaller issue. You won't be able to get a player of his skill level, but you will be able to get at least something.

Well I guess we know 6 complete morons voted in this poll. You don't just cut a player who makes 7 million a year and has a contract for a few more years.
