You hate the Pacers so much you read the article, huh?
Yah I read the article, a person is aloud to hope, no? I hadn't missed a game since the 06-07 season. I'm 25 was born and raised in Indianapolis. A hoosier in the truest sense of the word. However, I recognize the fact that these guys(the pacers) are getting payed millions of dollars and can't even put out effort to run down the floor. Give me a million dollars and I'd be able to avoid strip clubs, firing my gun in the air, smoking weed, bar fights, etc. Hell I'll do it for 20 bucks! Catch me on a good day and I'll do it for free. Its pretty easy... As for the "colts band-wagon" thing you're pretty far off but whatever helps you sleep at night...

f this oh its only the preseason. These A holes should play every minute of every game for the BULLSHIT they've put this fan base through.

Fans shouldnt have to buy tix for the preseason if these overpaid turds dont have to perform.

Glad to see we've got a lot of basketball geniuses on here today. I guess you feel the same way when #18 sits out the last preseason game of the year, right?
RIGHT O'Neal gets hurt during preseason and all of those so-called Pacer fans ask why was he playing in preseason? he's an all-star, not to mention our franchise player. Simon brothers,Walsh nor Bird can win for losing with a fan base like this. Glad to hear they are ignoring comments negative or positive. GO PACERS

Who are half the guys who'd sit out? We'll all be blessed to hear your "inside" information.
Real embarrasment on the floor-- they missed the playoffs one time since 1997, 4 trips to the Eastern Conference finals since '97, and one trip to the NBA Finals. That sounds like an embarrasment.
Yea the OLD pacers were good and represented the state of Indiana with class. Since then it's all gone down hill. Every two weeks there is another player arrested. We should be making the playoffs that often its the EASTERN conference, its the equivalent of the NFC in the NFL its nowhere near the WESTERN conference, just as the NFC can't touch the AFC. Also the pacers are yet to play with the amount of heart that they should or could. I dont completly blame the players i think larry bird should've stayed a coach he has been an awful head of basketball operations.

That's 1998-2007-- not the old Pacers, the team now. I didn't even include anything before 1998 like you are thinking.

The West is a little bit better, but not as much as you think. The EAST has won 2 of the 4 last championships, and the one other year, the Pistons took San Antonio to 7 games. You need to do some critical thinking and not just regurgitate what some talking head says.
