In the NO Podcast Episode 46: Season Preview

Published: December 25, 2011

Ryan and Michael elaborate on their season previews. You’ll probably hate my pessimism. Michael tries to set me straight though.

Fools! I cannot be swayed from my path of gloom!

    Thank you…I will enjoy seeing EJ in Pacers uniform in a year or two. If Eric hears this he will be glad to come home. We know what he can do and how to build a good TEAM. We do not need a flashy star and he play basketball the way people in Indiana like it played. Bird loves his hometown kids, since he is one too. Did you see how we picked up Indy native George Hill for a good deal. It was even a worry with the Clippers that EJ would come home. The Pacers have cap space and like the kid said in an LA Times article “there is nothing like basketball in Indiana”

    Oh his friends and family call him EJ, it is what he goes by. I have not seen anyone around here call him that. You sound like you have no idea what he can do. Is it that hard to go on YouTube and checkout what he has done from high school to college to the NBA?

      Yeah, you guys love your team SO much that you were outnumbered by Bulls fans in your home arena during last year playoffs.

        Well we are finally back on track after the chaos we were thrown into after the brawl in Detroit. After making the playoffs last year it should help. But for sure we need to put people in the seats (I think we were last in ticket sales last year). I wonder who might help get even more people come to games. Oh and this is Indiana we have a LOT of good basketball. I will watch your games and hope you win since he is on it. Good Luck

      Yeah, he’s got a point, I don’t think a team has ever had their three best players suspended for 131 games collectively for attacking fans and players before. Nothing like Indiana basketball! What a TEAM that was!

        I know isn’t it great that we can come back from that and build a team of hard workers who have good character. ( Lance needs work everyone from announcers to players to coaches have been mentoring him and get him to grow up). Oh and I hate the players involved in that too.

        And if you had listened to the previous podcast, you would know that it was explained why he is called EJ. Calling him EJ doesn’t mean you know who he is or what he can do. It’s just a nickname.

        No I just want to know what you guys think of him. He is a good kid and my brother’s friend. I guess no logical conversations here just another lame blog. I will find another Hornets blog.

        Well, there aren’t too many, but I hope your find one that suits you. We all `get along’, all the blogs.

        Your initial comments were somewhat inflammatory . . . jumping in and just saying he was going to go to Indiana without any real data to support the claim.

        I suggest to stick around and make some better cases to engage folks in discussion.

        We’ve had some Pacers blog guys guest here in the past and are really open to other fans.

    “I will enjoy seeing EJ in Pacers uniform in a year or two. If Eric hears this he will be glad to come home. We know what he can do and how to build a good TEAM.”

    That doesn’t indicate anywhere that you want to know what we think of him. Good riddance.
