This team is a mess, we have a half court team that was told to run.  They traded players to help them run, but they still seem to be a half court team with players not suited to that task.

They, Walsh and Bird, need to make a decision and commit to getting the people needed to produce the desired result.  Right now the pacers have two types of games being played Motion, and Half Court:

Half Court Players:   Oneal, Tinsley, Diogu, Harrison

Motion Players: Foster, Murphy, Dunleavey, Daniels, Marshall, Armstrong, Green, Baston, McLeod,

Players good with both:  Granger, Williams

I like watching the motion offense better, but can they dump their half court guys???  Would they be willing to???

my mistake, its top 10 protected, so they'd better extend that losing streak to 20 so they can keep the pick

The Pacers have lost 10 straight games.  Those last 2 spots in the East are completely up for grabs.  New York, New Jersey, Orlando, and Indiana are the contenders for those 2 spots.  I think they're going to New Jersey and Indy personally, although I would like them to go to NY and Orlando.

I think it will be close, maybe the Pacers will get the 8th seed.  Who do you think will get in instead of Indy (assuming Jersey gets the 7th seed) ?

I think they will continue to lose while asking Tinsley to score as much as possible.  This way he becomes a trade-able commodity.

Come Draft time...  You will see Oneal and Tinsley and perhaps another player traded for the rights to Oden.  

This team just doesn't work, and your best bet is to let it play out.

Tinsley scores 37 in JO's absence, with only 6 assists and 5 turn overs.

We're headed for the lottery alright, but we'll be sending the pick to Atlanta. And don't hope for any draft-day trading, because we have very little leverage to do that.

O'Neal has proven he can't stay healthy let alone carry a franchise, and Tinsley is too erratic. No team in their right mind would trade any draft pick for either of those two.

Also consider that Bird & Walsh just made a major trade, and the current lineup has only been intact for a couple of injury-plagued months -- which is not nearly enough time to assess.

So sit back, and wait it out. The best we can hope for is some undrafted free agent comes to camp and blows everyone away. We sign him, and he becomes the next Ben Wallace...
