nice little article on Foster
 
from indystar.com:

http://www.indystar.com/article/2009...younger+Pacers

basically talks about Jeff being the longest tenured Pacer and how he's helping out our younger squad members.



"dunk like this you should, young padawans."

I have always like Jeff Foster. He plays good D and rebounds very well. He is consistent and brings great energy off the bench. Its crazy he is already 32, I remember him and a young n when he entered the league. I would love to have him on the Lakers

yeah, one of Jeff's biggest attributes is his consistency. he gives 100% on the floor in every game and would easily fit on any other NBA team.

Jeff's days are sadly numbered. He's really begun to show his age and the effects of the continuous back troubles. I don't want him moved, but his deal will be quite valuable when it reaches it's last year. When rumors have floated about him being moved he's always been professional and realistic about it, understands it's a business and if it helped the franchise he'd understand.

We just drafted his replacement in Hansbrough in terms of setting an example and bringing it every night whether it's a frigid January night a dozen games out or Game 7 in mid-June. I think once he hangs it up he'll remain involved with the franchise, broadcaster, assistant (I think he'd make a great one), front office, something.

Man, I hope so.

Jeff is one of the greatest Pacers of all time (in terms of being a guy who puts everything he has into the game night in and night out, a dedicated player).

He will def. be a good mentor to Tyler, Hibbert and the other bigs. I think they can learn a lot about how to handle yourself as a basketball player and how to understand the game as a business. Good thing though, his replacement in Tyler is a good one bc he has a good head on his shoulders. He was a workhorse in UNC, I expect him to get the most out of his ability in INdy
