The trade has played out better for Indiana, which received T.J. Ford and Rasho Nesterovic in the exchange. The Pacers' disappointing 13-22 start has more to do with the absence of Mike Dunleavy than with the departure of their former star O'Neal.

Looking ahead: Raptors president Bryan Colangelo isn't likely to accept a losing season without trying to do something about it. Another coaching change? Another trade? All options are being explored to quell speculation that Bosh may leave as a free agent after next season. The Pacers, meanwhile, have moved on to their next mission: Finding a new home for unused point guard Jamaal Tinsley. Good luck to them.

And the Raptors 15-21 start has nothing to do with the coaching change, Jose and JO being out and general lackof heart from the team?

I think the point was how the trade impacted both teams, Dunleavy was not part of that trade so the impact of players Raptors sent to Indiana is better than JO's impact on Raptors. And is not the play of JO, but the overall impact ... basically, last year Raptors was better than this year Raptors while for Indiana situation is the opposite.

dumb logic
indiana played almost the whole 2007 season without JO. So basically, this season they got TJ, Rasho, Jack and Hibbert, and lost only Dunleavy to injury, and their record is much worse. BS ...

If we replayed Orlando in the playoffs with JO (healthy obviously) We'd have done much better IMO.
