That's not an indictment on Jim O'Brien or anybody else on the coaching staff, I just feel Jeff is that good.

foster is probably my fave pacer player. he's a player that brings it every night and gets all the dirty work done. he seems to be on the total opposite end in terms of character than most of the other team.

i think they're starting murphy over jeff for the offensive reasons. murphy helps to thin out the defense down low as he usually hangs out at the 3pt line the entire game. this would help out o'neal if he'd actually rebound more.

Jeff's never averaged over 25 minutes a game. If this makes sense, he's TOO high energy of a player to play 30+ minutes a night, he'd break down. 20-25 minutes on a nightly basis is the best option for him.

That is a good point indeed, but I am not saying play Foster 40 minutes a night. Last Sunday in Oakland, Foster sat on the bench for the whole game. Jeff is too good a player to be receiving DNPs-Coaches Decision. Murphy is one hell of a player, but Foster helps even things out defensively. That is one area where the Pacers have struggled. I personally like the small ball lineup with Jeff at center. That is just my opinion feel free to agree or disagree.

i think foster's game helps out more in the end than murphy's.
