WATCH BUTLER, NOT THE PACERS, THINK ABOUT IT. WATCHING BUTLER THE FAN GETS TO SEE BETTER PLAY, MORE EFFORT, AND DECENT TICKET PRICES, COMPAIR THAT EXPERIENCE TO GOING TO SEE THE PACERS......NO CONTEST. REALLY, THINK ABOUT IT.

Ha ha you guys are all retards for talking about the Pacers and Pro Basketball. It's Butler B-Ball B!tches.

But just for the record, as far as the Pacers go, THEY STILL SUCK:
-Mike Dunleavy Jr. has graduated from Doneleavy to Dumbleavy

-Jamaal Tinsley is still Jamaal "The Tall Turd" Tinsley, he's just not a soggy one. And I guess untill he gets in trouble again he's done being Jamaal "The Jack@$$" Tinsley (well at least off the court)

-JO doesn't fit Jim O'brien's system, so he needs to trade him and Tinsley else were ASAP!!!!!!!!
-But Jim Obrien is a much better coach then Ric Carsile and possibly the guy the Pacers had before Larry Brown in the NBA and ABA merger.

But just for the record,IU's Eric Gordon isn't who the Pacers need, he needs to stay in school and learn to play point guard, because that's what he is going to be playing in the NBA no matter where he goes. They need Butler's Pete "Tomato Soup Steve" Campell, because he is a perfect Reggie clone who is so much better at shooting 3's. And because he is from Columbus Indiana him playing for the Pacers and taking them to the playoffs the year he is drafted will make their success all that much sweeter. Then maybe the Pacers could snag either Butlers AJ Graves or Mike Green in the second round and give them Tinsley and Deaner "The Weaner's" spot @ PG.

Dude, you are so right about Butler. I grew up a die hard Purdue fan and as much as I hate to admit it, Butler is so much more exciting on the court. They are quite possibly the most exciting basketball team to ever step on a quart and they are definatly a contender for the NCAA title, because they are better this year then last. Pete "Tomato Soup Steve" Campell, Mike Green and AJ "The General" Graves are all on fire behind the 3 point line. Then that big new guy they got is only a freshmen and already looking a hell of allot better then IU's Eric Gorden.

So your an aussie hey, that's freekin awsome to know butler basketball is apprichiated in the land down under as well as in the state of Indiana.
You know what's even better about Butler B-Ball, is that head coach Brad Stephens grew up in Indy and has lived there I believe all his life.

Another rough year coming for the Pacers. I wonder how ticket sales are going. Should I even ask?
Shoot, I heard they couldn't even sell out the Boston game.

Count me in the category of people who clearly remember what life as a Pacers fan was like in the 80's. Some people come here and blog insisting it's those of US who have it all wrong. That somehow we are kool-aid drinkers, and they've got it all figured out by trading JO and JT.

Honestly, nothing compares to the hollow era in the 80's pre-Kellogg, Person and Miller. If many of the people who blog here were to remember those days they would recognize how spoiled we really are today. Many gurus know the Pacers have all the pieces necessary to make a strong run, WHEN they put it all together.

I didn't watch the game yesterday but I listened to it on the radio. Coach O'Brien is hitting on the areas our Pacers need to improve on, and he's just the guy to get this team back on a winning track. Listen to his Press Conference about defensive rotations at the end of the game.

If anybody noticed he also gave the crowd kudos for their participation in the game against Dallas. That is his way of thanking the fans for getting behind this team and encouraging them to continue the support.

I'm thankful there are some here and around town who still remember, and are obviously fans win or lose without reverting to deriding our players and demanding trades when someone is hurt or falls behind a few games. Either you ARE a fan or you're not - win or lose!

Go Pacers!!!

Some people just shouldn't be allowed to post their pea brained thoughts. This guy calls everybody retards for discussing pacer basketball and then goes on to post four times straight. And to say Campbell is a way better shooter than Reggie, in case you weren't aware your talking about the greatest 3-point shooter in the game to date, and by the way basketball is played on a court not a quart.
