Jamaal Tinsley Will Not Be Missed in Indy

by July 23, 2009

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.”
