winning solves that.

Generally, ego rules.

I remember reading about this story long time ago. A couple of young, hot blooded Pacers were in this "whose team is it" kind of ego contest. I can't remember who, maybe Jermaine O'Neal and Ron Artest?

It got to the point where it started becoming detrimental to the team, but in the end the episode was defused by Reggie basically telling them you can stop arguing, it's neither of you, it's MY team

And they basically couldn't argue with that and so that was that

I think you've got the details right. It was addressed in the Netflix doc Untold that recently came out. But it still did tear apart that team and was partially what pushed Artest to ultimately make his ill-fated trade demand that led to his end in Indy.

Oh, he’s not getting run right now, but I wouldn’t trade him unless absolutely need be. He’s a prototype 3 and D type combo forward that’s still young, and signed to a super team friendly long-term deal. Even if he doesn’t get much play this year, I’d still hold onto him.

I agree. I didn't mean we should trade him only that I forgot to include his name in possibilities. frankly, I'm surprised that he hasn't played up to my expectations so far this year, but it's early.

I think he’s flashed when in, but hasn’t gotten minutes for some reason.

How would you guys feel about a Gary Trent Jr. for Turner deal?

It wouldn't make much sense for Indy, positionally. We have Brogdon and Levert for now, and we just drafted Chris Duarte as the 2 guard of the future in this past lottery. Trent is really good, but he's at a position we have well populated for now and in the future.

I suspect the same way you feel about a LeVert for OG deal

Start Strus over Clunkan perhaps. I wouldn't start Herro because then the bench would never score at all. Herro deserves to start obviously but our bench is **** scoring without him. Bam is averaging 0.3 blocks per game! For a player with his size and athleticism that is sad. Fred freaking Vanvleet averages double that lmao. And our defense has dropped to 11th in the league. Turns out you need to be able to protect the rim at least a decent amount.


Exactly. Bam has reached unheard levels of softness. He's like fabric softener out there. Get Turner in here ASAP

I blame the chubby jewish women orgies.

At least it looks like Myles' season is getting some recognition from fans of other teams
