The Pacers have a long way to go before the fans will come back. Most fans don't believe the Pacers have much in the way of talent and that O'Brien's brand of basketball is just a gimmick to lure fans in. This team will win more games this year and might even make the playoffs. However, basketball fans in the state of Indiana have a good understanding of the game and can see right through this team. It is time for Larry Bird to go and bring in someone that wont let their pride get in the way of honestly evaluating talent.

I'll continue to watch the Pacers play. I am in college so I can't afford to go to many games, but with 72 regular season games on Fox Sports Indiana, I will be watching and rooting.

Can't wait for the team to get to the playoffs again so all the fairweather fans can jump back on the bandwagon.

Too bad your hate hasn't taught you to spell. How difficult is it, even for someone of your ilk, to know the difference between "to" and "too"?
Shasta what did I hit a nerve? You must be one of there GIRLS that work at the Strip Club they hang out with!

Oh I dunno. "COPS" was pretty popular in its heyday. Of course, it didn't cost as much as Indy's version.

man are these guys out of touch or what?
they create an inner city style team?
they have nothing but hip=hop jive a$$ millionaires that whine cry & do as they please?
they recruit a couple of 2nd level white guys
and then expect us fans to run back in droves.
go to your real fans in the inner city. sell your product to them (because that is who you designed it for) I see how many of them are going to pay 1, 2,$300.00 to go and watch a second or third rate bunch of bums that are led by a ex-super star who thinks he is loved by all of Indiana and can do no wrong.
The Pacers & Larry along with the NBA have made very bad buisness decisions and are paying for it.
Why would you think that white middle & upper middle class people would pay for the trash you have on the floor........
