    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 […]

    Time to admit to a character flaw: like so many others, I am an inveterate ranker. As soon as Paul George completed his reverse-360 windmill slam against the Clippers Saturday night, the first thing that popped into my head was a potential list. Where might that rank among in-game dunks […]

    As soon as he signed on the dotted line, it all changed for Paul George. Before the ink dried on that five-year contract extension reportedly worth at least $84 million – the second-richest ever signed by a Pacers player – George’s world transformed from one of potential to one of […]

    The sense of inevitability doesn’t make it much easier to swallow. We’ve known for a while Tyler Hansbrough’s days with the Pacers were numbered. They were numbered as soon as David West was signed as a free agent to be the team’s rock at power forward. But the news Tuesday […]

    Soon enough, we will see how things unfold with Paul George vs. LeBron James, Roy Hibbert vs. Chris Bosh and even Lance Stephenson vs. Dwyane Wade. But how do these current Pacers match up against history? How would David West do against Dale Davis? Hibbert against Rik Smits? George against […]

    Pacers’ All-Star Weekend memories a mixed bag

    Remember that year Reggie went for 35 and hit the game-winning 3-pointer over Magic? How about the year Jermaine had a triple-double and made Shaq cry? Of course you don’t. Those things never happened, because the All-Star weekend has not exactly been full of magic moments for the Pacers through […]

    So you have the dunks, the clutch plays, the steals, the blocked shots and the silky 3-pointers going for you, which is nice. But if you really wanted to see evidence of Paul George’s growth, you should’ve been watching his postgame interview last night. Craig Sager asked a rambling question […]
