Jermaine O'Neal: I want to retire a Pacer
 
Quote:

HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Jermaine O’Neal and the Indiana Pacers will be forever linked. A stud post and franchise connected at the hip.

After spending several seasons chained to the bench in Portland, O’Neal became an All-Star and MVP candidate in Indiana.

Simply put, he was The Man. And if a certain forward doesn’t jump into the stands in Detroit, perhaps Indiana wins that elusive championship.

So when O’Neal calls it a career, Indiana should sign him to a one-day contract. And their favourite son would get to call it a day with the organization he loves.

The only thing more fitting and appropriate would have been if these two won a championship together.

Interesting. Also I am surprised this was not on here earlier

I keep seeing this misquoted all over the internets. He got asked something about how he'd like to be remembered after he retires. He said as a Pacer. Not go back to Indiana and play again. I don't want his corpse and ego destroying any chemistry that's been built here anyway.

Well where did you see that? I also read this in the newspaper. But it's whatever. And if he did come back to Indiana I'm sure it wouldn't be long enough to affect any chemistry

Just have him sign a 10 day contract when he can't get signed for any other team and just have him play a couple minutes in a home game.

It's been awhile, when it first got reported a few weeks ago. I've seen it reported both ways. Either way, ain't happenin.
