    If all goes according to plan, Jermaine O’Neal played his last game in Indianapolis Tuesday night. At age 35, O’Neal has all-but made official that his 18th NBA season will be his last. Though he clearly has something left in the tank – he played 30 minutes and produced seven […]

    The fact Paul George wanted the entire starting lineup, not to mention coach Frank Vogel, included when ESPN made the interview request said enough. But it didn’t say it all. When the Pacers sat down for their interview with Stephen A. Smith, which aired Wednesday on SportsCenter, the most telling […]

    Larry Bird isn’t officially on the job yet but there’s no doubt who’s in charge of the Indiana Pacers. In a vigorous, invigorating and refreshing 20-minute press conference Thursday morning, Bird didn’t just return to his role as President of Basketball Operations (effective July 1). He seized it firmly with […]

    Bird’s back, but did he ever really leave?

    So much for the big press conference. As soon as the Pacers sent out the e-mail announcing a “major press conference” for 10 a.m. Thursday, the speculation began, followed quickly by the breaking news. You just can’t keep a secret these days. And so, less than an hour after their […]

    Draft night may be season high point for Pacers rookies

    One of the byproducts of a team’s success is a reduction in reliance on rookies. When you win the Central Division and advance to the seventh game of the Eastern Conference Finals, you do not have a roster that offers much in the way of opportunity for rookies – especially […]

    When it comes to Bird, Pacers need closure

    Brunos Blog, Pacers June 14, 2013 at 8:14 am

    Here’s what the Pacers need, when it comes to the Larry Bird situation: Closure. Somebody, be it Herb Simon or Donnie Walsh, needs to pick up the phone and get the answer to this question: “Are you in or out?” Until they get that answer, a franchise on the verge […]

    If you feel a little guilty about having doubted these Pacers, having been thoroughly surprised by their success, don’t beat yourself up. Donnie Walsh feels the same way, and he’s the boss. It’s typical for those in Walsh’s position to take the “I told you so” stance, claiming to have […]

    Danny Granger’s season is officially, finally, painfully over. Is his career? Donnie Walsh doesn’t think so. The Pacers President said the decision to shut down Granger for the rest of this season in order to have surgery on the left knee that has sidelined him for all but five games […]

    Will Pacers yield to temptation to make a bold move?

    Brunos Blog, Pacers January 31, 2013 at 11:11 am

    With the NBA trade deadline three weeks away (Feb. 21), the Pacers are in a position of great temptation. Even without Danny Granger, they have remained within striking distance of the top spot in the Eastern Conference, in part because Miami has not approached the dominance expected, but also because […]

    With Granger out at least 3 months, Pacers must regroup

    Brunos Blog, Pacers November 7, 2012 at 11:31 am

    There really is no other way to view today’s news: the landscape of the Pacers’ 2012-13 season has changed, because indefinitely now has been defined. Danny Granger faces a recovery time of “approximately three months,” the Pacers announced in a release, after receiving an injection in his left knee to […]
