I wrote the other day that many players and NBA executives were having difficulty embracing the new NCAA rule that is making student-athletes declare for the NBA Draft a month earlier than usual this year.
The ESPN czar of the NBA mock draft has released his first mocking, and it comes as no surprise that Chad Ford already thinks very lowly of the Indiana Pacers' fake pick-up.
The time is ticking down to Saturday's deadline when many of the 103 early entry candidates for the NBA Draft must decide whether they want to stick around by signing an agent or go back to the confines of their dorm room.
You'd think it would be the team that hasn't been to the playoffs for four years, saw its worst season in 20 years, and is on the verge of financial disaster that would be changing coaches within the Central Division.
If you want to get a sense of how unready players on the Indiana Pacers are for a run/stint/smell of the playoffs, just take a look at Marquis Daniels and his playing time with the Boston Celtics.
Austin Croshere, watch your back. Anyone associated with the 2000 Indiana Pacers needs fair warning that the axe is coming down. One of the best fan favorites to ever don a Pacers' blue and gold...
He's the first-round draft pick that haunts Larry Bird's dreams. And he continues to fall further and further away from any type of NBA future.
He was lured away from the Indiana Pacers for less money and promised playing time on a winning team.
The Indianapolis Business Journal interviewed local lawyer Paul Ogden to examine the contract between the team and the city of Indianapolis.
All it takes is a team threat, a losing season and press conference by a living legend and the Indiana Pacers are finally back on the front pages again.
For all of Jones' positive qualities, there is one part of his game that is severely lacking -- 3-point shooting.
After years of hearing his voice echoing through the hallowed halls of Market Square Arena and Conseco Fieldhouse, Porter will end his run as the Pacers PA man on Monday night.
Herb Simon doesn't know where the rumors started, he just knows they're wrong. Despite his franchise -- the Indiana Pacers -- losing millions of dollars while suffering through yet another losing...
It's all about the Butler Bulldogs in Indianapolis this Easter Sunday. But maybe you can make some room for an Indiana Pacers nightcap tonight.
The currently injured Miami Heat center and former Indiana Pacers money-sucking contract will be testing the free agent waters this summer.
It's all about the Final Four team Duke Blue Devils at the Fieldhouse right now -- at least for three Pacers players. Mike Dunleavy, Dahntay Jones and Josh McRoberts are the party hosts for all things Duke this weekend in Indy.
But Earl Watson's late-season push as the team's prominent point guard will force the team to make another difficult decision with the PG spot this summer.
Josh McRoberts was seemingly "relevant" during last night's win against the Wizards, although I wouldn't expect coach Jim O'Brien to acknowledge it.
It's become a crazy season for the Indiana Pacers. For five months, the team teetered on self-explosion, slowly sinking into becoming one of the bottom four teams in the league as players, fans and coaches (especially coaches) wondered what the hell was going on with this team.
Ultimately, it was the Pacers who put forth a strong mental and physical effort in the second half as the blue and gold staved off a late Pistons run to secure a 98-83 win.
This Indiana Pacers team has been a lot of things this season: depressed, underachievers, injured, offensive and defensive nightmares, etc. But now this team can add a "never-give-up" attitude to its list of attributes
Danny Granger's head injury is gone and passed, and the Indiana Pacers star is ready to finish out the season.
While NBA teams have mastered the art of tanking their season away in hopes of landing better odds in the upcoming NBA draft lottery, the Indiana Pacers want nothing to do with it.
There was something that happened during last night's 99-94 loss to Cleveland that was very exciting -- the rise (and fall) of the young guns.
LeBron James had six points, two blocks, two steals and an assist in the final four minutes to seal the deal for a Cavs' 99-94 win, which clinched the Cavs the Central Division title.
The team announced this morning that Granger was immediately taken to the Methodist Hospital last night for examination. He had a CT scan of his head and neck and the results were negative.
