    Great Tinsley article

    Time to rethink Tinsley?
    Pacers Insider | IndyStar.com

    I can hear the screeching feedback already, but I’ll say it anyway. Just let me take a few steps back first, in case you want to throw something.
    OK, ready.

    Jamaal Tinsley’s career with the Pacers might have been rejuvenated with the hiring of Jim O’Brien, and I wouldn’t assume he’ll be traded this summer.

    Can you handle that truth? Here’s the deal.

    O’Brien looks like a CEO and talks like a sober-minded minister, but he coaches a rather adventurous style of basketball that should be well-suited to Tinsley's game. Don’t be fooled by him. Don’t be fooled by Tinsley, either. They could be made for one another. . . .

    . . . Eustachy drove Tinsley hard in practice, too, wondering all the while if he would transfer before Christmas. Tinsley wound up staying for both of his seasons of eligibility, although he probably would have been a first-round draft pick after his junior season.

    “I just liked how he was demanding,” he recalled once. “You want a coach trying to get the best out of you. That was the greatest thing I ever did, going there.” . . .

    I thought it was very professional on his part to call the Pacers' offices last week wanting to talk to his new coach. People say he's immature, but not a lot of guys would have done that.

    People have said that he is immature because that is how he has acted. I wonder if he is realizing that unless he gets his act together, his career may be coming to an end? Let's hope that he has had a wake-up call.

    What is wrong with partying, boozing, limoing, escorting, and plain having a good time if you have big bucks. Oh, you mean do not do it before a game? Now I see why they said he is immature. Just feeling /spreading his oats.
