OMG, JEEZ! Finally ...

His was so ignorant about his coaching style.


Give the ball to Collison and let him lead the way!

About time. But the Pacers are more than just a coach away from contention.

Young PG with a lot of talent that needs to be developed, good defensive and rebounding center (who even went to Georgetown like Dikembe Mutombo), no out of control egos, some tough big men off the bench, and basically the Pacers need to learn how to win. Oh, and it's Indiana.



It seems some dude was just made available who fits the bill for that coaching spot. How is that not the fastest coaching hire ever?






Bird also did a good job when he coached there, and probably should be a coach again, I don't know why he hasn't tried it. But Larry Brown makes too much sense.

Surprised it didn't happen sooner. Hibbert had improved, they got Collison, and still didn't improve that much. Larry Brown maybe?

They don't have the balls to fire Larry Bird, that will be like telling God we no longer need your services.

YES!!!! I dont kow if Brown is the answer, but OMG!!! How did O'Brien last this long.

I hope my thread a few weeks back calling for his dismissal had something to do with it! lol

Actually, I think Mike Brown has a better chance at landing the Pacers head coaching job as apposed to Larry Brown. Remember, Brown was an assistant with the Pacers under Carlisle. I personally think Larry Brown is going to the Lakers after Jackson retires this season.

Didn't Bird say like a month or so ago that O'Briens job was safe at least through the season?

He has the worse dye job of anybody in sports. Why do guys do the gray sideburns and dark brown hair? Why not just do it all? And he sucked as a coach.

His point was pretty clear. The Pacers have sucked since Miller left. Is that hard to figure out?:confused:

How i love this forum, people here called it like a month before it happened, saying indiana's too talented to perform like this and is just one legit coach away from doing good, and it happens.

Why are people saying Larry Brown as the next Pacers head coach??? :confused:

He's not the right guy for that team. They'd be better off with Mark Jackson or Mike Fratello as their head coach.

My guess is because he coached here before. I would like to see Mark Jackson, Mike Brown, or Sam Mitchell here in Indy.

Too much talent on that team to be stuck with a coach who obviously had lost his team. Glad they are finally moving forward.

that has nothing to do with this thread... so what is his point pertaining to the thread? He has none, hes just baiting.
