    Murphy all that’s missing from Heat’s new Big Three

    Fast breaks compiled while watching Pat Riley do his best to re-assemble the 2009-10 Pacers: >> What’s next for Miami? Replacing Erik Spoelstra with Jim O’Brien? If Riles wants another version of the Big Three, Troy Murphy is available to join Danny Granger and Josh McRoberts on South Beach. >> […]

    Pacers Hibbert, Stephenson in headlines again

    Brunos Blog, Pacers July 7, 2014 at 11:22 am

    Remember when Larry Bird used stealth technology? Not anymore. It seems the Pacers President can’t make a move these days without some agent or GM leaking it to some national media type. Last week, of course, we had the Goran Dragic lightning bolt from Marc Stein, but as much as […]

    Midnight madness arrives for Pacers, Stephenson

    Brunos Blog, Pacers June 30, 2014 at 2:38 pm

    Around 12:01 a.m., just as soon as July 1 arrives, Larry Bird will phone Alberto Ebanks and midnight madness will begin. Ebanks is the agent for the Pacers’ most important free agent, Lance Stephenson, and when the market opens Tuesday, his client’s price may well be determined by how many […]

    Pacers report card: Has Hibbert bottomed out?

    Brunos Blog, Pacers June 24, 2014 at 2:23 pm

    And so we arrive at the crux of the matter, the middle of everything, the center of attention: Roy Hibbert’s mood. When it is good, Hibbert is one of the best centers in the league, a two-time All-Star, an elite defender and a productive low-post option. When it is sour, […]

    Pacers report card: good Lance vs. bad Lance

    Brunos Blog, Pacers June 16, 2014 at 11:46 am

    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 […]

    Pacers report card: Like players, Vogel must evolve

    Brunos Blog, Pacers June 10, 2014 at 12:55 pm

    This is the second in a series of report cards grading the Pacers’ performance in 2013-14. Next up: the point guards. Frank Vogel experienced the best and worst seasons of his career all at once. As his team bolted out of the gate, from 9-0 to 18-2 to 33-7, all […]

    Pacers report card: Bird didn’t make the grade

    Brunos Blog, Pacers June 9, 2014 at 2:19 pm

    Editor’s note: This is the first in a series of report cards grading the Pacers’ performance during the 2013-14 season and playoffs. Next up: coach Frank Vogel. When Larry Bird returned from a one-year hiatus last June, the idea was to finish the job. It remains undone. In fact, it […]

    Bird must change Pacers’ core, not just tweak bench

    Brunos Blog, Pacers June 4, 2014 at 9:54 am

    For the past two years, the Pacers entered the offseason convinced an upgraded bench was all that stood between them and the next step. It was a reasonable supposition then, but not so now. They’re no longer knocking on the door, they’re banging their heads against the wall. The starting […]

    Pacers’ season of innocence lost ends in misery

    Brunos Blog, Pacers May 31, 2014 at 8:45 am

    And so ends the season of innocence lost: >> With a thrashing so brutal, it should leave scars all over this roster; >> With the best player on the team publicly planting seeds of doubt about his interest in playing with the next-best; >> With Lance Stephenson once again making […]

    On and off court, Pacers Game 4 performance absurd

    Brunos Blog, Pacers May 27, 2014 at 9:28 am

    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. They blamed the officials. They actually had the utter ignorance of reality to suggest they somehow played well […]
