On The Brink

Filed in SportsTags: Pacers

I didn't know The Agitator was a Pacer Fan:

If Rick Carlisle doesn't get some consideration for coach of the year, something's amiss. He's taken my Pacers to the brink of hosting the first round of the playoffs after losing his best player for about half the season, his second best player for the entire season, and his third best player for a quarter of the season.

I've not followed the Pacers since the fiasco in Detroit and its aftermath. The NBA is a joke. It has been for years, ever since streetball took over any appearance of actual basketball. But after what the league did to the Pacers, I pretty much completely gave up. Regardless, it's good to see Indiana sticking it to Herr Commissioner by bringing themselves to the brink of hosting the first round of the playoffs.

Pacers-Pistons (almost) Blows Up Again

Filed in SportsTags: Pacers - NBA- Bomb scare delays Pacers-Pistons game:

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) - The threat of a bomb in Indiana's locker room delayed the start of the Pacers-Detroit Pistons game for 1 hour, 25 minutes Friday night.

Can the NBA just cancel all future Pacers-Pistons games in Detroit? Just to be fair, I'd be willing to give up ever having the Pistons in Indianapolis again, too.
