J. O’Neal now states he wants to be a Pacer. Damage control at it’s
best…

RealGM: “I want to be here. I want to be a Pacer. All along, my concern has been the well-being of the team. Obviously, we haven’t had the type of years we would expect for quite a few reasons.

    JO is worse than Kobe when it comes to making up his mind.

  • http://www.lakers.com Ed

    If Reggie wants to contribute to this new Celtics team, he should just join as an Assistant, and NOT as a player. He should always be a Pacer and not ruin his legacy.

    Hey Ed, your comment was on ESPN.com too. Are you killa0039 as well?

    Anyways, this is going no where … the J.O. deal was a good thing to dream but it looks like we’re hearing false stuff perhaps written by crazy journalists. I think the best thing is to tune in to Jimmy Kimmel and hopefully Kobe will be asked on how the Lakers Organization’s plans on building a better team. And not stupid questions like his rumored divorce.

  • Noriega7333

    Just read the article on the official Pacers site. He says that his contract takes up a lot of cap space, and he doesn’t want to do that for the Pacers. So he wouldn’t mind a trade to help them.

    Come on guys, how can you actually buy this BS of an article.
    JO says, “Do I think we’re rebuilding? No.” Absolute bull. The Pacers have 8 players with 3 years or less of NBA experience and no vets who know how to win, come on Pacers you can make JO BS better than that.

    that’s what we thought about the shaq trade remember. What did those jackasses get in return for shaq? Grant’s contract?

    think about that! most GM ask for expiring contracts. They ended up paying for that contract while he played for somebody else.

    Even Miiny managed to get an expiring contract for their trade (Ratcliff).

    In a perfect world, Kobe will go on the show and tell everyone that he wants to be a Laker for life in an effort to attract great players.

  • http://www.lakers.com Ed

    I found this Q & A with JO on Pacers.com

    Q. Is that why it’s particularly important to you that the events of the past few days not be misrepresented, misunderstood or misinterpreted?

    A. I knew it was coming when I saw the media out there (Sunday in Los Angeles) because there’s been a lot of conversation about me coming out there, but they said there’s been a lot of speculation about you coming to L.A. or New Jersey and would you allow that trade to happen? I said if the Pacers were to go in another direction and move me to either one of those teams, I would accept a trade with L.A. or New Jersey, if that’s what they wanted to do. What they did was dissect it and say, ‘Jermaine wants out of Indy.’ I don’t want out of Indy. I’ve told them time and time again I want the best situation for the Pacers. I want to be here. I want to be able to retire here, and I want to retire here as a champion. Obviously, everything isn’t going to be good all the time. It just doesn’t happen like that. You’re going to have some tough years, and we’ve had some. I was blessed to come into a great situation where Reggie had really schooled myself and other young guys in a system that had been pretty well established. When he left, it was in the midst of two of the worst years probably in Pacers history in terms of off-the-court situations. But things happen and you try to be better people about it but we don’t have those things going on anymore. It’s a new situation.

    Normally, when you hear players say something was taken out of context, it really wasn’t. But in this case it really was and that’s why I want to let people know my mind isn’t anywhere else. When the summer first started, I may have gotten a little bothered by some comments about being shopped. I’ve always accepted that as a professional athlete; it’s part of the business. But when you continuously hear it not only nationally but from your own backyard, that bothers you a little bit and you have to really sit back and say, ‘This could be a reality.’ I took it to Donnie, I took it Larry and I said, ‘Let’s talk about this. What direction are we going in?’ And they said they didn’t want to rebuild, they wanted to make the roster better and they made it clear if there was a deal out there that was going to make the team that much better and they had to use me, they would. I was OK with that because I want this organization to succeed, I want this city to be happy. This city, this organization, has given me the opportunity, the Simons, I can’t say enough about those guys and Donnie came and got me from Portland, and this city gave me a chance. When I go anywhere in the world, people know me as an Indiana Pacer and that means a lot to me. I would never do anything in a negative way to cause embarrassment to this organization, or to throw dirt in this city’s face.

  • LakerNation1

    i think JO got paid some extra cash by bird under the table to keep his mouth shut.

  • mj2kb

    yea i believe they told him to be quiet for the time being bcuz they dont want anybody tampering. He really wants to be traded

  • LakerNation1

    my message to all GG readers is this:

    prepare for the worst. accept right now that we may NOT get JO to become a Laker. I tried to tell some of u that during the KG stint, and look what happened. people crying over the dumbest crap and saying the dumbest thing, acting tough behind a computer screen.

    i want JO to come too but we gotta keep our composure. it sucks seeing fans getting so angry when things dont go our way. be faithful, but be real at the same time.

    anyways, i hope all this JO backtracking is really just a way to keep the waves at minimal. hope to see him in purple and gold soon.

    Lakers #1

  • Rpoc

    I was the ultimate guy saying what signs do the Lakers have they are actually going to make a trade in OUR FAVOR!?

    Even while knowing that you still gonna get pissed off inside or outside when the prediction comes true because you frakin’ don’t want it to but know it’s gonna happen.

    This is all damage control. Does it mean Bird is going to stop his attempt to bend us over to make up for the GS trade? Nope! As long as Kobe’s situation is unclear he has no reason to. He may privately recruiting now but as long as he maintains in public that its too early to decide if wants to stay or not, it reamins that way.

    He’s waiting for US to break first and it might happen which is utterly shit.

    I think the reason why fans are stressing out is not because we didn’t get KG or JO or JK.

    The worst is not losing KG or JO – but rather KB. THIS WHY WE’RE IN PANIC MODE. THE GREATEST PLAYER EVER WILL EITHER BE TRADED OR WALK AWAY. THAT’S A GOOD CAUSE FOR A PANIC IF YOU ASK ME!

  • Kwame MVP

    agreed

    No JO = No KB = No Lakers.

  • LakerNation1

    point taken

  • http://www.youtube.com/darkice18 dark_ice18

    JO is high…

  • gugy

    KB won’t stay another season if JO doesn’t become a Laker. Plus we need to keep either LO or Bynum.
    So, if JO comes, then we have a good shot of keeping Kobe and acquire another great player next season if so many good player on free agency.

    So there is hope, but time is ticking to make a big move this off-season.

  • keep24

    I will even go a step further and say this:

    If JO is going to become a Laker, we have to make a move now, before the season starts. This team will need the entire season to work together and learn PJ’s triangle system ( which I think has killed the Lakers the last 4 seasons).

    We can not wait until the trade deadline, it will be too late and we’ll end up with the 7th or 8th spot at best; like last two times and face the Suns and get our @$$ kicked.

  • Qwuor

    WHO SALIVATES OVER JO TO LAKERS EVEN IF IT COST US LO&AB

    Fellows I can’t stop dreaming of how JO Kobe would give the west hell. TRADE LO&BYNUM FOR JO. I will do that in a heart beat.

    1) i don’t care lo %..he doesn’t complement kobe well. eg if lo ,ray allen, and jo put up the same #’s, I will still trade Ray allen or LO for JO because he complements kobe better.. it’s not about #’s, it’s about complementing kobe.

    2) we’ve seen what L.O& Bynum have gotten us last 2yrs vs SUNS…1st round exit. I don’t see KOBE & LO beating the suns anytime soon. LO can’t guard AMARE,BOOZER,DUNCAN, GASOL, even RANDOLPH. JO CAN. ??? for you

    don’t you think if lamar/bynum was replaced by jo, J.O & Kobe would have beaten the suns 2years ago.

    3) The only reason lo/ab trade is bad is if next season, AB turns out to be a 16ppg 11rb guy. AB’s developement is similar to that of Al Jeffersons..AL Jeffs 2nd year #’s were identical to AB’s 2nd year #’s..that means like AL Jeff, AB’s 3rd year should be 16ppg 11rb…BUT I DONT SEE IT. IF mitch is right, AB could reach his potential at age 23, in 3 years…KOBE WILL BE LONG GONE..no use having a 23yr old Center when the best player in the game is not available..Even shaq couldn’t carry a team until kobe came. KG with all his greatness couldn’t lead his team with FOYE, DAVIS, Jaric and BLOUNT..I don’t expect bynum to lead the lakers w.o kobe even if AB post 30ppg 12rb. in 3yrs. With that said LETS BUILD AROUND KOBE..& JO WILL BE A GOOD START.

    I’m sorry I just don’t see a line up of kobe, jo, mihm and fish/vlad losing to any teams in the west.

    fisher/jcrit, kobe, vlad(if healthy), JO, mihm

    Farmar/koby, evans, walton, turiaf, brown

    sasha, cook. THE guys in bold are Defensive minded.

    1)J.O can neutralize any good PF/C in the west..basically he can hold his own. he might not shut them down but he could match them points for points..

    http://youtube.com/watch?v=2C3e0QolmCA&mode=related&search=

    2)If Mihm is healthy..He can clean up JO’s misses with put backs..Mihm has that Hook shot and great midrange shot. I heard he looks as good as ever. Like JO, He’s inspired to show the world that he’s back..He’s a decent shotblocker and serviceable ,yet skilled. I think we could get 30ppg from those 2. JO & Mihm would solidify our front court.

    http://youtube.com/watch?v=hixRBmCs-28

    3)Walton, Fisher/ J.critt could help being the glue guys..making the extra passes and creating a flow in the offense etc..

    4) J.O fg%’s will definitely improve playing in a system and alongside kobe..because kobe, fisher, vlad will all spread the floor.

    5) Last year we were #5 in off.production. DEN, WAS, GS, SUNS were all better…BUT We were better than 2 of those teams because we were much better than them defensively..ie wizards & GS.. ALSO were were able to beat the best of the west in SA, HOU, UTAH, DAL because we were better offensively than those teams but they were way better than us defensively.. IN SUMMARY IF OUR DEFENSE IMPROVES, WHERE WE ARE top 10, were are going to be top 4 team in the west…DEFENSE and that’s what Fisher, J.O, Kwame, Kobe, turiaf, and maybe J.Critt will bring.

    the stats below showsJO #’s in 05-06 season: vs playoff teams with GOOD FRONT COURT, when JO was healthy..WHOEVER SAID JO CAN’T POST GOOD #’S VS WEST TEAMS IS seriously delusional..JO avg 16.5 fga/game..LO avg 12.2 fga/game. Only 4.3 more attempts than LO.

    SHAQ (shaq had 6-12, 6rb, 18pts) vs JO had 10-20, 9rbs, 7-10 fts 27pts

    YAO (8-21, 13rbs, 24pts) vs JO had 5-10, 11rbs, 6-7 fts 15pts

    PHX vs JO had 9-20, 9rbs, 7-12fts 25pts

    DUNCAN (11-15, 9rbs, 4-8 fts 26pts) vs JO had 10-20, 7rbs, 6-8fts 26pts

    GASOL (2-11, 7-10ft, 7rb, 1blk, 11pts) vs JO had 9-19, 14rbs, 5blks, 2-3fts 20pts he shut GASOL DOWN. SOMETHING NOBODY COULD DO ON LAKERS

    JO #’s in 06-07 season: vs playoff teams with good front court, with JO playing on ONE LEG:

    CAVS vs JO had 8-15, 6rbs, 13-15 fts, 5 ast,4blks 29pts nobody could score like this vs cavs except kobe..JO is 2nd option

    C.BOSH (6-18, 11rbs, 0blks, 17pts) vs JO had 5-12, 11rbs, 3blks 15pts they shut each other down..but JO was better

    Z.Randolph(11-27, 11rbs, 0blks, 8-8 fts 30pts)v JO had 8-13, 8rbs, 5blks, 4-6fts 20pts he shut Randolph Down..something LO or no other laker could do

    DENVER VS JO had 9-13, 16rbs, 2blks, 20pts no one could stop him on Denver..HIM and kobe will give AI and MELO fits. Something that L.O/Bynum couldn’t do.

    DETROIT VS JO had 8-17, 10-10 fts, 1blk, 26pts this guy could be the diff. maker for us when we play the pistons..he’s always killed the pistons.

    C.BOOZER (7-15, 11rbs, 1blk, 18pts) vs JO had 10-19, 11-13 fts 3blk, 31pts he dominated boozer on 1 leg. something lamar/bynum can’t do..

    DETROIT vs JO had 9-22, 13rbs, 7-10, 4blks, 25 pts once again he owns detroit..like kobe owns SA..

    DIRK (8-17, 7rbs, 1blk 4-4ft 20pts) vs JO had 7-18, 16rbs, 5blks, 6-8ft 20pts better def. guy than dirk..he had 5blks..and matched him offensively

    at DIRk’s (13-24, 12 rbs, 15-18ft 43pts) vs JO had 10-22, 9rbs, 3blks, 6-6ft 26pts dirk got him this time but it was on freethrows.

    Gasol (12-22, 9rbs, 6-9ft, 3blks, 30pts) vs JO had 11-23, 17rbs, 3-4ft, 2blks, 25pts jo can hold his own vs Gasol…enough for kobe to take over..

    E.Brand( 6-13, 2-3ft, 11rb, 6blks 14pts) vs JO had 9-18, 3-4ft, 8rb, 4blks, 21pts As you can see, J.O dominated Brand..with KOBE that’s an easy win.

    Gasol (8-16, 3-8ft, 13rbs, 2blks, 19pts) vs JO had 8-17, 7-10 ft, 9rbs, 3blks 23 pts JO had the better of him.. JO will take some burden off kobe. something that LO/AB can’t do.

    AMARE (8-22, 7-10fts, 18rbs, 1blk 25pts) vs JO had 13-24, 13rb, 7ast, 6blks, 28pts JO dominated amare, and was better def. something LO/AB can’t do.

    CHICAGO VS JO HAD (15-24, 9-12 FT, 14RBS, 39pts) when lamar gets these amount of points in a game holla at me…

    LIKE I said JO avg only 4.3 more attempts than LAMAR..Lamar is too passive to be 2nd scorer..I think with J.O and Kobe calling Double teams, this team is gonna be hard to beat because, SASHA, COOk, VLAD, FISHER, will all have career years.. I think Turiaf will improve also.. He has a jumpshot and some nice back to the basket moves…he’s a nice backup to J.O.

    TRADE L.O and AB for J.O..Haters only think we will get to the 2nd round. fpr the last 2 years These same haters thought lakers wouldn’t even make the playoffs, they thought we didn’t have a chance against phx 2 season ago..but kobe has proven them wrong..DON’T LISTEN TO THE HATERS..ANALYZE how kobe and JO could mesh and you will see that phx, dal, sa, utah can’t beat kobe & JO & phil combo esp if Mihm and Kwame are healthy

    JO will take us to the FINALS..call me delusional but i believe this with all my heart..and my judgement are usually correct.

    GET JO EVEN IF IT COST LO&AB. KG is only a slight upgrade over JO

    Maybe Bill Russel will sign with them they need another big man right.

    They may end up playing inthe geriatrics league.

  • nyla

    JO probably knows Bird is demanding both LO and Bynum. And if Lamar goes and its just him and Kobe, the Lakers aren’t better. My guess is that if JO is still a Pacer next summer, he’ll opt out and sign with the Lakers.

    so, let me RE- introduce their POSSIBLE starting lineup

    kirk heinrick, kobe, andreas nocioni, joe smith, and yokim noah

    and their bench : jameson currey, aaron gray, adrian griffin, and victor kryiapa

    and the lakers…

    deric fisher, luol deng, lamar odom, luke walton, and ben wallace

    their bench: tabo sefolosha, chris duhon, tyrus thomas, brian cook, sasha, chris mihm, kwame, mo evens, coby karl, javaris crittenton, jordan farmar, vlad-rad, rony turiaf, ben gordon and baby bynum.

    now, trade brian cook, bynumm, sasha, and vladrad for J-Oneal

    and trade kwame, chris duhon, and farmar for artest and heres your lineup

    D-Fish, luol deng(or luke), artest, lamar, and big ben

    and we got a championship in Lakerland

    Good point nyla. I think he knows as well as Kobe that we need this deal to go through with LO staying. Which is pretty much why I believe he came out on this “will he or won’t he” kind of media circus. It’s still up in the air whether he weakened Indiana’s position…but I think it definitely opened the door for the Lakers to walk in and say, “see?”

    trade lamar, bynum, brown, farmar for oneil,murphy,granger.

    http://games.espn.go.com/nba/features/traderesult?players=2760~1013~615~981~2748~3002~617&teams=13~13~13~11~11~11~11&te=&cash=

    both teams make out they get the 2 players they want and a young point. we get the player we want and a young forward and a bench warmer center ( he is a white guy so he might thrive in the triangle unlike no brain brown)

    oneil-vlad-cook

    sounds like the same old crap that garnett went and said before leaving his “beloved” Wolves. DIdn’t he say he wanted to stay and teach there? Now he’s partying out in Boston. Don’t expect much different from J.O., just hope where he lands is where we all want him to…in L.A.!

    magicbalala245 you don’t understand you have to give talent to get talent. no one wants vlads contract that would be a deal killer. the trade i proposed would put us in contention this year and would attract vets for the min. next year. do it mitch
