    yeah, that's genius. So much so that I had already looked there and saw that it wasn't very up to date only listing where they played most recently and mentions nothing about 2011. I know that Fizer played his last game in the carribean and that tinsley is basically still getting payed not to play by Indiana I think. So, if anyone has some UP TO DATE info it would be appreciated. Thank you. And yes, I have already used google too.

    What I've learned from this thread is that Tinsley's Rucker Park nickname was Mel Mel the Abuser. That's awesome.

    I believe Tinsley played very briefly for Memphis last season, but since then he's been out of basketball completely. As I recall, he's still due roughly 7 mil from the Pacers this season. I haven't heard a thing about Fizer in years.

    Brackins is the only ex-ISU (other than Wes Johnson) player in the league, right? If so, NBA players as a whole have played about 355,000 minutes this season, and former ISU players have accounted for 21 of these minutes.

    Sobering stat but unsurprising based on the recent teams performance.

    Wesley was benched a bit a month ago, but he is doing better now except for that same bad knee.

    Last I heard Tinsley was offered a contract to play in china with Jackson Vroman. Sounds like he hasn't accepted it yet, waiting to see if something comes up in the NBA I guess.

    Wow, he better be careful about getting in trouble over there. They don't mess around. On another note, Jax has to be licking his chops!
