Default J Oneil is a BIG mistake!

We don't really need another Power Foward ..... what we really need is a guy who and create off the dibble with a scoring mind ...... we should of traded T.J and 17th Pick for a GOOD Small forward and then drafted and traded for a DECENT Center ..... now we are stuck with a dude who hasn't really played in the past couple of years, ONEIL gets hurt because his leg is BAD .... TJ got hurt because someone HURT HIM during the season so its not really the same ..... in the end IF WE DON'T MAKE IT PAST THE 1st and 2nd ROUND BIG BIG BIG WASTE!

I'm not sure drafting a big man (who usually take years to develop) will keep CB4 happy enough to stick around...

I figure we traded a redundancy for a need, so no complaints from me.

It's all about how many games JO will play...if he plays 70+ including playoffs the trade would of been well worth it!

It's a big mistake that you spell his name wrong...



j/k


i am sure BC weighted the options and there were no decent SF available (with rebounding, blocking, defensive and some offense), and willing take on TJ Ford

They filled a huge need, got rid of a redundant, high priced, long term injury risk...and worst case scenario they will have 20+ million dollar expirer to shop around before the summer 2010 (when several team will be desperate for cap space). Great move, with minimal downside, and huge potential benefit.

100% agree. JO is also said to be healthy and could have played later last season if Indy wasn't out of the playoff picture. He has had little to play for, and in the NBA, that's a reality. In TO, he will and he has a contract to play for which should help his motivation and health. Also, he will play C, he's not a PF. He's a PF/C like Duncan is.

If he plays well, we consider re-signing him after 2 years. If not, he is dealt next year or falls off the books and gives us mega cap room in a loaded offseason.

Says the guy who thought Boozer and Ronnie Brewer for Tj or Jose and Bargs might work.

Only failed physicals would cause the whole thing to break down IMO. The Pacers get a good deal for JO, I don't see why they would get cold feet.

Unless you are bringing something big and newsworthy about Jermaine O'Neal it can be posted in one of the other thousand threads about the deal.
