    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 […]

    Early in his career at Arizona, Solomon Hill got his hands on an opposing team’s scouting report. He read it thoroughly and objectively to see how his strengths and weaknesses were perceived, as well as how opponents planned to attack him. And then he proceeded to change his game. A […]

    Invigorated Bird eager to finish the job with Pacers

    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 […]

    The Pacers need help now, specifically for their impotent second unit. The No. 23 pick in Thursday’s NBA Draft does not appear to offer much in the way of help, at least not of the immediate kind. Take those two factors, mix in a General Manager (Kevin Pritchard) with a […]

    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 […]

    Will Pacers yield to temptation to make a bold move?

    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 […]

    Pacers better, but enough to talk title?

    Brunos Blog, Pacers October 1, 2012 at 7:07 am

    Now what? The Pacers have done their methodical thing, slowly re-stocking the roster, rebuilding the team to contending status and restoring the credibility of the franchise. They have taken important and upward steps under Frank Vogel, reaching the playoffs two years ago, winning at a 52-game pace over a full […]
