Jack Takes All The Heat
Jermaine O'Neal is worried about the public perception of the team and wants everyone to know that Stephen Jackson is only one player on the roster and, while he's definitely not shining a positive light on the team, the rest of the players are working hard to develop a team to make Indy proud. My advice to JO is to keep quiet. Enjoy the lack of pub and hype surrounding the rest of the team. While Jack takes all the media heat, a team implementing a new style of play with several new faces can grind away in near anonymity. There isn't enough room in the papers or on the local newscasts to cover the Jack story and follow the ups and downs of preseason progress. It things are going so well with the rest of the team, let's just keep that our little secret until the season starts.
