Default No 1 Priority for Bird: Deal Tinsley and Oneal

Heres an interesting read: http://www.indystar.com/apps/pbcs.dl...87/1004/SPORTS
************************************************** *******

It's great that Herb Simon has chosen to transform himself from a hands-off owner to a hands-on kind of guy. And it's great that Simon hired Jim Morris, the noted businessman and philanthropist, to run the company's off-the-court operation. If Morris can survive Darfur, he can survive the Indiana Pacers.

Probably.


But all of the front-office shuffling will be rendered meaningless if the guy running the basketball operation, Larry Bird, doesn't accomplish two things this summer:

He must get rid of Jamaal Tinsley. Trade, buyout, set him adrift on an Arctic ice floe. Whatever.

He must trade Jermaine O'Neal.

If those two players are still here when we meet again in October, the Pacers will have made no progress toward rebuilding this team, and the leash on Bird will become dramatically shorter.

Tinsley's act grew stale about four years ago. It doesn't matter how his various off-court issues have been resolved by the courts. The perception of him is never going to change, not here.

They basically need to trade everyone not named Danny Granger and perhaps Mike Dunleavy

**** Bob Kravitz.

I'll say it again, trading JO now is stupid. His value is at an all-time low. He comes back and plays, his value is higher. He comes back and gets hurt again, his value is higher because he's that much closer to being a massive expiring contract.

Thank you, I've been saying this for quite some time. We need to let him come back, play, get his value up, and if he's not meshing with the team right, or if it seems as though he needs that change of scenery, ship his ass out.
