Jamaal Tinsley Will Not Be Missed in Indy

Rival teams are already vying for his services, but the media in Indy will not recall Jamaal fondly: “In the end, Tinsley outmaneuvered the Pacers by doing absolutely nothing, by sitting on his backside and collecting paychecks. That’s certainly galling. The Pacers will still have to take a cap hit these next two years, courtesy of Donnie Walsh’s misguided decision to extend Tinsley’s contract years ago. Still, though, it’s not a complete loss. Because Tinsley is gone. Because the stench of the TrailPacers days is gone. All the primary figures who brought so much shame to the franchise are playing elsewhere…Finally, there is closure. The TrailPacers era is over.”

    This guy is greatly under estimating the amount of shame Mike Dunlevy Jr, brings to the Pacers.

    And I might’ve been living a rock, so sorry if this is a stupid question, but what the hell did Tinsley do that’s so wrong anyway?

    Okay you don’t have to answer that, apparently it’s because he’s lazy. So they reward him by letting him sit on his ass and pay him 7 mil a year?

    He really is a good player underneath his attitude.

    He really is a good player? Have you ever watched Tinsley play? During his last game as a Pacer, Tinsley took a shot on 14 CONSECUTIVE POSSESSIONS to close out the game, including every possession of overtime. Shockingly, the Pacers lost. Tinsley made terrible decisions and thought he possessed a lot more talent than reality indicated.

    Maybe his skills are beyond his iq – basketball or life. I miss watching him play but don’t know if I would want him on my team.
