07:14 AM ET 09.19 | All-Star Paul George has gone on the record to say Pacers fans needn't worry about him going anywhere. Indianapolis is his professional home and he plans to be here for a long time. "(A long-term contract) is going to get done," George told The Indianapolis Star. "There will be a deal signed and sealed on the table before the season. We're (George and Pacers management) on the same page." George is entering the final year of his contract and the odds seemed long that he would leave Indiana even before Wednesday's comments. ... [Said George:] "Honestly, I love it here. I want to be here. It's a great place. There are no distractions. I can stay focused. It's all about basketball here. I can stay focused and do my job." Pacers President Larry Bird said earlier this week he hopes to reach a deal before the season.

He is off the market. Now we'll just have to wait for Lebron and Melo.

When has anyone ever elected to leave NY? Melo isn't going anywhere.

There's one guy that is a passionate Pacer fan on here. I'm blanking out on his name at the moment. He's on at night usually.

Fred?

I know but both stars are wishy washy. Lakers and Cavs are hoping they would leave.

Translation: He'll be gone before the weekend.

Please don't toy with my emotions like that. I would like nothing better than to see Melo gone, by way of trade for pieces that will actually help us towards the ultimate goal. But alas, it will not happen.
