Extreme butthurt brought to you by Pacers beat writer

38 posts in this topic

isn't this one of the 5 stages of grief?

Reasoning will be his next article when they still clinch a playoff spot without him.

Problem is they may not even get out of the first round.

If they were "willing to do this" and "willing to do that"They should have put it on the table.

Their stubbornness is our gain. Fug them.

If he was "your best player" pay him accordingly or give him a short contract so you can pay him when other contracts go off the books.

Don't be disappointed with Lance, be disappointed that you didn't close the deal.

They just wanted a potential star on the cheap for 5 years

I honestly think Bird though he could get a cheap rental out of Lance due to his past behavior and not court performance. He actually might be a better fit for the Hornets then Gor Don. Lance has potential to be a game changer for the Charlotte area. When is the last time Hornets and Panthers got this much attention, we are getting spoiled.

I don't understand why peop,e keep harping on the turning down 44 million. The offer from Charlotte was considerably better. Lance is making a hell of a lot more in the 3 season here then in Indy. The story they should be writing is the Pacers tried to screw Lance on the contract if you actually look at the structure of it. When you look at the x's and o's it's very obvious why he left.

Do they not teach math in that backward ass town up north?

Actually agree with that article.

The problem is his reasoning for why Lance rejected the Pacers is wrong. The writer makes it sound like Lance did everything in his power to leave Indiana and that's simply not true. His agent wanted a shorter deal so Lance could capitalize after the new salary cap on a max deal if he performed well. Bird was trying to lock him in below his market rate for his prime thinking no one would challenge the Pacers for Lance.

You can't max out Hibbert and give George Hill the same 8 million dollars and then try to lowball Lance. Instead of blaming Stephenson, the writer should point the finger at management that capped out the Pacers and stuck them with players that couldn't show up in the playoffs.

Once again, because of his visibility, Lance is the convenient scapegoat.

All I saw was "extreme butthurt" and thought this was going to be a Cam-gets-insulted-by-the-media thread.

Larry Birds comments in that article got me really excited.

So when Lance was on, he was better than Paul George according to Bird.

That's exciting!!!

I feel like he will be better than Paul George. That means alot coming from Larry bird

More per year here with the opportunity to get a much larger contract if he pans out.
