    They’ve been the best team in the division for two years, but the Pacers might soon face the prospects of becoming also-rans in the Central. Consider the possibilities: LeBron James (and the No. 1 pick in Thursday’s NBA Draft) in Cleveland, Carmelo Anthony (and Derrick Rose) in Chicago. Anthony, of […]

    The Miami Heat were not just defeated by the San Antonio Spurs in the NBA Finals, it turned out to be the most lopsided championship round in history. Beatings that soundly cost people jobs. It should. The Heat were embarrassed and clearly not the superior team in the league for […]

    After a breakout season that was equal parts mesmerizing and stupefying, this much we know about Lance Stephenson: He’s going to get paid. Whether he’s cashing the Pacers’ checks next season remains to be seen, because the decision is hardly automatic. That’s because there are (at least) two Stephensons: the […]

    Everyone else can focus on the ear-blowing, huddle-scoping, meme-inducing antics. When it comes to Lance Stephenson, the Pacers need substance. Style only matters if it clashes. Look behind Paul George’s 37-point outburst in the Pacers’ 93-90 Game 5 victory and you’ll see two major factors. The obvious, of course, was […]

    Fast breaks from the Pacers’ embarrassing, pathetic and utterly predictable Game Forfeit loss in Miami: >> As bad as their performance was in the game, it was actually worse in the postgame.

    Time for Pacers’ Stephenson to walk the talk

    There he goes again. First, it was the thinly veiled hint he would try to aggravate Dwyane Wade’s battered knee, offered up by Lance Stephenson even before the Eastern Conference Finals began. Wade seems to be holding up pretty nicely, averaging 24.3 points on 62 percent shooting. Now, it its […]
