Indiana Pacers

  1. Danny Granger doesn’t think the players need the NBA… or salaries to play the canceled games

    Oct 13, 2011, 6:04 PM EST

    Indiana Pacers v Atlanta Hawks

    Who needs the NBA, really? And who needs to get paid? Most people, including myself, have rolled their eyes at every #LetUsPlay tweet that’s filled their Twitter timelines since Monday, since the players are actually saying #LetUsPlayForTheDealWeThinkIsFair. It’s not that their proposal isn’t fair, it mostly is (but not in totality), same as the owners,…

  2. Reggie Miller’s greatest moments recreated in China

    Oct 6, 2011, 1:29 PM EST

    reggie-miller

    Reggie Miller is big in China. Apparently. There is a Web site called ChinaPacers.com where they have a video recreating Miller’s legendary Pacer moments on an outdoor court in China with guys who might not be able to touch the net when they jump. And yet, it is brilliant. YouTubey brilliant. I just wish they…

  3. Set your DVR: Roy Hibbert on “Parks & Recreation” Thursday

    Sep 28, 2011, 1:13 PM EST

    parks-and-rec

    We here at PBT are huge “Parks and Recreation” fans — find another blog that has done the NBA version of Ron Swanson’s Pyramid of Greatness. You should be watching this show every Thursday night anyway (right here on NBC!), but now we’re giving you an even better reason — Roy Hibbert’s debut. Yes, the…

  4. T.J. Ford will accept a smaller role to be on a winning team

    Sep 16, 2011, 1:28 PM EST

    FORD_TJ

    T.J. Ford will be a free agent when the lockout ends, so he is saying what every free agent says — I want to play for a winner. Of course he does. The Pacers made the playoffs last season but with a losing record. And he was not a huge part of that. Ford was…

  5. Herb Simon says to chill out on the Reggie Miller talk

    Aug 21, 2011, 6:39 PM EST

    reggie-miller

    There were reports earlier this week that the Pacers were considering bringing in Reggie Miller to work under Larry Bird in the hopes that Bird could help groom Miller to be his successor. It was a pretty good plan considering Bird’s been on the fence for the past three seasons about whether to retire or…

  6. Report: Pacers owner wants Reggie Miller to replace Bird

    Aug 18, 2011, 11:30 AM EST

    reggie-miller

    After listening to Reggie Miller broadcast NBA games, would you hire him to be your team’s general manager? I wouldn’t even let him run my fantasy team, but if a GM gig gets him out of the broadcast booth I am fully supportive of it. Larry Bird is going to step down at the end…

  7. Pacers Hibbert on NBC’s Parks and Recreation. Yes!

    Aug 11, 2011, 5:50 PM EST

    parks-and-rec

    You should be watching Parks and Recreation Thursday nights. I say that not because my paychecks come out of 30 Rock — well not completely — I say that because it’s just damn funny. I say that because Ron Swanson is one of the best, most original characters on television right now. I say that…

  8. Granger wants Indiana to go after a power forward

    Aug 10, 2011, 2:14 PM EST

    Indiana Pacers v Atlanta Hawks

    Indiana was back in the playoffs last season after a four-year absence. They have a young core with Danny Granger, Paul George, Roy Hibbert and Darren Collison. And they have a lot of money to spend. We may not know what the league’s post-lockout salary structure will look like, but we do know the Pacers…

  9. Jalen Rose to serve 20 days for drunk driving conviction

    Jul 27, 2011, 12:42 PM EST

    Jalen Rose played 13 NBA seasons and is now an NBA analyst for ESPN

    Back in March, Jalen Rose was arrested for drinking and driving — then he got in more trouble with his employers at ESPN for not telling them about it — has been sentenced to 20 days in jail for the offense, according to Fox News in Detroit. Rose crashed his SUV then when cops showed…

  10. RetroBall: Knicks-Pacers ’95, the night of the finger roll

    Jul 25, 2011, 4:24 PM EST

    ewingafter

    Since billionaire owners and millionaire players are bitterly divided over how much money they’ll be splitting over the coming years and have locked us out of actual basketball to talk about, PBT will be regaling you this summer  with RetroBall. Using the advanced powers of the internet and NBATV, we’ll bring you interesting stories from years gone…

  11. Pacers deserve applause for doing right by employees through lockout

    Jul 23, 2011, 10:48 PM EST

    pacerslogo

    That’s right. While the Los Angeles Lakers are shredding staffing during the lockout despite making more money every day from merchandising than most teams in the league probably make in ticket sales in an average day, and the league is torching employees while executives still draw huge paychecks, the little old Indiana Pacers are doing…

  12. Stephenson apparently “Born Ready” for China or Italy

    Jul 22, 2011, 6:59 PM EST

    STEPHENSON_LANCE

    His game makes Lance “Born Ready” Stephenson an interesting prospect. His attitude almost had Danny Granger and Dahntay Jones going after him in the locker room. His arrest for domestic violence had the Pacers keeping him away from the team last summer. He played in just a dozen games for the Pacers last season. He’s…

  13. Top five unrestricted free agents… where will they go?

    Jul 20, 2011, 3:15 PM EST

    Boston Celtics v Denver Nuggets

    Free agency is not going to be as much fun this time around. Whenever the owners and players get around to settling the lockout the free agency period will be condensed and hectic. Not that I really miss the drama of Lebron dragging out his decision, but it’s fun to watch things break over a…

  14. George Hill is going to miss watching Ginobili play nightly

    Jul 19, 2011, 7:39 PM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v San Antonio Spurs, Game 6

    Here’s what we learned about George Hill today — not a fan of Whataburger. Big fan of Gregg Popovich’s jokes (if you like dry humor you’d like his jokes, too.) But what did Hill tell butthegameison.com he would miss most after the trade? When asked to rate how much he would miss seeing Manu Ginobili…

  15. Free agent Landry says he’d consider playing for Pacers, Bucks

    Jul 11, 2011, 9:15 AM EST

    New Orleans Hornets v Los Angeles Lakers - Game Five

    Carl Landry has options. He’s a solid forward, a guy a lot of teams could use off the bench to provide some solid offense, good defense, a few boards and maybe a midrange jumper or two. New Orleans wants to keep him, but he will have a number of suitors. And of course he has…

  16. Report: Pacers about to hire former Blazers GM Pritchard

    Jul 8, 2011, 10:35 AM EST

    kevin-pritchard-jazz-game_display_image

    Larry Bird didn’t sound like a guy who wanted to hang around much longer, the Indiana Pacers were about to be a team in transition in the front office. It sounds like they found their guy, according to a tweet from Mike Wells of the Indianapolis Star. The Pacers are in the process of hiring…

  17. It’s finally official, Frank Vogel is Pacers head coach

    Jul 6, 2011, 1:59 PM EST

    Vogel

    Since the season ended — when Frank Vogel led the Indiana Pacers on a 20-18 turnaround that got them into the playoffs then put up a good fight against the Bulls — everyone expected Vogel to move from interim coach to full time head coach. The Pacers went through the motions of a coaching search,…

  18. Brian Shaw to be Vogel’s head assistant in Indiana

    Jul 5, 2011, 6:28 PM EST

    Brian Shaw

    It probably wasn’t the job he was hoping to get when the off-season began, but long-time Laker assistant coach Brian Shaw will be Frank Vogel’s head assistant in Indiana, according to multiple sources. When Phil Jackson retired after the Lakers were swept by the NBA champion Mavericks in the second round of the playoffs, some…

  19. Pacers will officially name Vogel head coach

    Jul 5, 2011, 5:15 PM EST

    Pacers' head coach Vogel reacts during the first half of Game 1 of their NBA Eastern Conference first round playoff basketball game against the Bulls in Chicago

    According to multiple sources, the Indiana Pacers will officially remove the “interim” tag from Frank Vogel’s head coaching title and announce a three-year extension with him at a press conference on Wednesday morning. Vogel coached the Pacers to a 20-18 record after taking over for Jim O’Brien in the middle of last season, which allowed…

  20. Larry Bird doesn’t sound like a guy hanging around for long

    Jun 27, 2011, 9:59 PM EST

    NCAA Championship Game: Michigan State Spartans v North Carolina Tar Heels

    You’re not going to have Larry Bird to kick around much longer, Pacers fans. At least that’s how it sounds in a conversation Bird had with the Boston Globe. “It’s at a point now in my life where I think it might be time to really reconsider and see how long I want to do…

  21. Brian Shaw to interview to be Pacers assistant coach

    Jun 20, 2011, 10:07 AM EST

    Brian Shaw

    Just a few years back, Brian Shaw got the chance to interview to be the head coach of the Indiana Pacers. Didn’t work out, they went with Jim O’Brien instead. Now, Shaw is back in Indiana interviewing, but this time to be the lead assistant for Frank Vogel. That’s what Mike Wells of the Indianapolis…

  22. Jimmer Fredette will go in the lottery… but will he succeed?

    Jun 20, 2011, 8:46 AM EST

    Gonzaga v Brigham Young

    General managers came out of the NBA Draft Combine saying Jimmer Fredette was brilliant in the interviews. Then he has gone into a series of workouts for teams and impressed by holding his own against other top point guards in the draft. He’s tried his best to answer the many questions about how his game…

  23. Ron Artest tells the story of how he was almost a Clipper

    Jun 14, 2011, 3:28 PM EST

    Ron Artest

    Ron Artest with the Clippers? Instead of the Kings? Monday night Artest went on a little twitter binge looking back over the course of his career and it included the story where he was almost traded to the Clippers. Here are all the posts Did ya know when I got traded to sac (Sacramento) that…

  24. Wojnarowski: Pacers leaning toward keeping Vogel

    Jun 9, 2011, 8:28 PM EST

    Vogel

    Yahoo! Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski has the report: The Indiana Pacers have made significant progress toward deciding to make interim Frank Vogel the permanent head coach while working to strengthen his grip on the locker room, league sources told Yahoo! Sports. No final decision has been reached, but sources said most of the hurdles have been cleared for…

  25. Report: Minnesota dangling No. 2 pick, Pacers interested

    May 19, 2011, 5:09 PM EST

    Granger_celebrates

    It makes a lot of sense for the Timberwolves to be shopping the No. 2 pick in the draft, which makes the numerous reports it is happening easy to believe. That pick is either going to be Derrick Williams — a likely four who maybe can play the three — or now-rising Turkish power forward…
