Re: Disappointed on the lack of a trade?
O'Neal is out for the year, right? I remember reading somewhere that he might not play for the rest of the season; maybe it was just a Pacer fan with high hopes of tanking... I'd like to see him get traded because I don't think Indiana's going too far with him. They've got a young team, they need to get young talent to mold together. Finding some good defensive players should be a high priority, but I don't think that drafting a big-time scorer, if he falls into their lap come draft day, is out of the question either. Indiana needs that kind of player who can take over a game himself; preferably a point guard to develop behind (and possibly even play extensively behind) Jamaal Tinsley. And a center is a high priority as well. Getting a tall athlete to pair next to the shorter, hardworking rebounder in Diogu would be a step in the right direction. Lots of options come draft day for Indiana, just hoping they don't screw it up.
