Cause some of us would like to see our team win a ring before we die of old age 

/..and posting 78 times a day about how horrible everything is...helps the franchise get a ring.

Posting on a message board about how bad the Pacers are helps the Pacers win..

 

Seriously?

OMG

VO was drafted way to high the night he was drafted quit trying to twist this to help you we want the next game changers VO was not one on draft night no matter how stupid the magic were to take him 2nd overall

Look I am not trying to be argumentative with you but if you think VO was drafted way too high after having the college career he had I am pretty confident you are just trying to be argumentative yourself. It's either that or you have no clue as to what you are talking about.

I think when it comes to the NBA draft there are some with selective memory particularly when it comes to top 10 picks.  Dipo doesn't fit the point that was trying to be made.

I really don't remember. But I do think a coach gets credit for the wins and blame for the losses

I'm glad to hear that.

Pagano has never had a losing season..

and Nate McMillan has never had a losing season in Indianapolis

 

If Nate gets us to .500 this year will you back him..

or will you complain that we didn't get in the lottery??

 

WE can be honest here.

Everyone needs to take a chill pill 

They are keeping it clean so let it flow lmao All of them have legit points, Mark hates to lose period which I understand but I still don't like this trade we just made and I question what direction the team is headed in much like LIG and Colt_12 are asking? I didn't like the McMillan hiring either.

Well if we're just 'chatting' with other 'fans;

..why go on and on about how bad the team is..how bad the coach is and how bad the franchise is.

 

If these are the subjects of our daily 'chats'....you better serve some coffee and danish

exactly..make your point......This is what we do here.

Nobody knows who anybody else is...Say what you really think.

Put it on the line and debate it...

 

and CBE..of course you are 1000% wrong about the trade.

We traded a guy we didn't have (we could not have started the season with him) anymore for two starters.

What specifically did you want that we could have gotten?

This is a tough time for Pacers fans so there is going to be stress and some hostility in here. We just lost the 2nd best player we have ever had in NBA Franchise history to Oladipo and Sabonis.

I mean: When somebody here (who shall go nameless but he knows who he is!!)  says that "to make $21 million a year, you have to be an allstar!!!"..

..and hours later..JJ Reddick signs for $23 mil a year/

 

We've got to talk about that!!!!!

 

(and the room falls silent)

Don't tie the losing of Paul to our new young players

paul was gone before the trade..we could not have started the season with him

I just think we traded him to fast and still could've hung in there a bit longer. Free Agency is just starting and July is a long month. Nobody really knows what Boston or LA was offering so it's impossible for any of us to say if it was better or worse.

VO was the 3rd or 4th best player on a team with no depth and sabonis is a fringe player the thunder literally made a trade to improve his spot just cause they start on our team don't make them great or good

Maybe.  Possiiby. Could be.  'impossioble to say'

Lets be real.

 

We got two young players for a guy we could not have begun the season with anymore.

In your mind, we could have done better. But in the real time, we did Ok.. We git players who will play for us after Paul has left OKC

 

..and we could not have begun the 2017-2018 season with Paul. Not anymore

Victor Oladipo was OKC's second leading scorer..He's 25..and he's making less than JJ Reddick

Comparing those 2 players is like comparing Apples to Oranges. JJ is arguably the best 3 point shooter in the league. That is why people will pay that salary for him. He isn't a Great all-around player but is super in that one important area. Much like the Cavs wanted Korver.

Come on...CBE...$23 mil......Korver's not making $23 mil..

 

 

Write it out $23,000,000....for coming off the bench 82 times and shooting. he's not a defender at all.

This is 'he 'process'

 

This is the franchise that is so smart.
