As buyers or sellers?

The Pacers always seem to have players I like but a flawed roster construction overall.


Sellers for sure. Even with TJ Warren returning, they are stuck in mediocrity, they would be best cashing in on their assets and going for draft picks. I think they should keep Sabonis, and maybe Levert, but the rest they may move.

Rick Carlisle has a lot of power as the new voice with management. If he doesn't think a player fits what he wants to do, that guy is most likely gone.

I haven't watched the Pacers play. I don't know if the problem is having to learn a whole new system or something else, but I'm surprised they've been so bad.

Draymond would get 75 games for this, but Lebron will probably receive a "Please don't do that again" email from Adam Silver though.

Nah, there was no intent there. LeBron was just trying to pull his arm away. Move on...

Always liked Stewarts hustle as a player but he comes off as an emotional school kid here. Sees a smidgeon of his blood and starts acting like its World War III. HOLD ME BACK!

He should receive at least a one game suspension. Intent or not, he punched a man in the face with a closed fist.

I'd like to see a short suspension for Frank Vogel for saying...

"To me it's one of those things that can change the momentum of your season. To see guys rally around a teammate that just got ejected like that in a strange circumstance."

If that's not encouraging that kind of behavior, I don't know what is.

Ridiculous, the Lakers should have handled the Pistons easily.

Coming back to win a game they should win is like some achievement?

They get to play the struggling Knicks and the decimated Cavs so the narrative will be that the team rallied.

Stewart was talking to LeBron way more calmly then something after the punch set him off. I wonder what it was ... I assume it was something said to him.

It's official. Stewart gets a two game suspension for bashing his face into LeBron's elbow. LeBron gets a one game suspension for being in the wrong place at the wrong time. :lol:

I still wonder what was said to Stewart to set him off.

I think Jalen Rose said earlier today that he thought it was becasue IS began to feel his own blood gushing out of his face and realized how bad it actually was. I tend to agree, dude looked freaked out more than angry.

That is awesome. And when you are on the plane you've got a blanket. You know they don't give you those anymore. Smart thinking by Kuzma.

Although I do wonder about the rip chords hanging out of the bottom. Is it also a parachute?

I'm probably in the minority, but I don't think Lebron wanted to punch him in the face, but he did want to push/hit him off. It was just unfortunate his head went down and he got clocked. 1 game suspension is fine. Stewart would not have gotten suspended if he didn't act like a crazy person, NBA isn't going to tolerate a guy acting like that and would set a precedent.

If he didn't act like a maniac, he probably doesn't even get suspended. He needed to be slowed down on 3 occasions, and it looked like he went through the tunnel to find another way to attack Lebron. That's just crazy behavior.

... and none of it happens without LeBron. I am fine with a suspension, I don't think he should have got more than LeBron. I also think something was said to him that set him off.
