Pacers CEO Donnie Walsh said Friday that Indiana's roster was virtually locked. When asked whether it was safe to say O'Neal would be a Pacer at the start of the season, Walsh said: "Yes, it is. That's the way we're thinking of it."I'm not telling you anything new when I say that superstars (no matter how unhappy they may appear to be) don't get traded very often, and I suppose, ultimately, we should just be happy with the fact that at least one of them escaped his personal basketball hell this summer.
"Trades can always come up, but in our minds, Jermaine is here and our team's intact," Walsh told The Associated Press.

There are certain guys in the League - good guys, if you will - stuck in crummy situations, and that fans (no matter their allegiance) want to see play for a winning ballclub. Jermaine O'Neal, the outspoken power forward, happens to be one of those guys. Unfortunately for O'Neal, it doesn't appear that he's going to be playing in a winning situation anytime soon.Filed under: Sports
