Top 10 Indiana sports stories of the about to end decade – whatever we call it
December 27, 2019

First of all, if you are one of those lunatics who insist this decade will end with after 2020, please stop reading.  I cannot help you, and your thoughts on correct decade definition are bonkers.  The 20s start with 2020.  Arguing that is the defiant act of an entrenched contrarian. Now that we’ve cleared out the kooks, let’s get […]

Team-first basketball leads likable Pacers past Lakers to surprising 19-9 record
December 18, 2019

I love watching the Pacers. They beat the Lakers last night to win their 19th game of the season, but winning is only part of the work they have done to win my heart. In the star-driven NBA where brand value often trumps success in the eyes of fans, the Pacers are an anomaly.  They excel without […]

Paul George can’t help but nauseate as he speaks to the media after beating Pacers
December 10, 2019

Paul George has always been a brand first, and he represents that brand with occasionally excellent basketball but relentless self-importance and clumsiness in comments to the media. George’s on court performance was outstanding last night for the Clippers in their 110-99 win over the Pacers.  His 36 points, nine rebounds, and five assists spoke for themselves, but George […]

Indiana Pacers need to build for 2021 not 2018 as Paul George will be dealt
June 22, 2017

It’s time. Finally, it’s time. The Indiana Pacers need to look realistically at the landscape of the NBA and understand that winning a championship in the next three seasons is a physical impossibility.  It cannot be done by the Pacers – or any of the NBA teams not the Golden State Warriors, Cleveland Cavaliers, Boston Celtics, […]

Paul George proves himself as tone-deaf as he’s been inaccurate during crunch time.
June 18, 2017

Paul George’s act grew tiresome as he morphed from basketball player into international brand.  It officially outgrew Indianapolis today. Reports of George’s desire to leave the Pacers for the Los Angeles Lakers when he becomes a free agent next summer have been confirmed, and as a result Pacers fans are ready to usher him out the door […]
