Take a deep breath. Focus with me. This whole Lebron/Celtics thing was a crazy mess. I don’t know what to think of it, you don’t know what to think of it, nobody knows what is going on. It’s times like this where I like to recharge the batteries, shut down the engines and get back to neutral. 2:20 of this video

I understand why this is such a circus. I don’t even need to discuss all of the reasons why there is so much talk about Lebron and the Cavs right now. However, the amount we’re all hearing about him is absolutely absurd. Everyone and their brother is giving a guess on where he’ll play next year. My question is, “Who cares?” Nobody has the answer, these are all just

The Need for Relevance posted on 03/16/2010

As a Pacer fan, the obvious highlight of my season was the ESPN 30 for 30 story on Reggie Miller vs the New York Knicks. I loved every second of the documentary. I thought it was put together very well, and the best part was all of the memories it brought back.

On the other hand it was bitter-sweet in some ways. The Pacers have been awful for the last few years, but I have still enjoyed the NBA and told myself, "It's OK that the Pacers aren't competitive because it is still great to watch all of these high profile teams go at it in the Playoffs." 

 But that was wrong. There is something incredible about living and dying with every point in an NBA Playoff series. And Pacer fans got to experience that excitement consistently from the mid 90's to the early 00's. Honestly, I took it for granted. And seeing those old games again, I remembered how much I hated the Knicks and how much I cared about how those games turned out. It reminded me that the Pacers used to

NBA Rankings Feb. 10 posted on 02/10/2009

With big matchups this week between the Lakers and Cavs, Lakers and Celtics and Celtics and Spurs, we are starting to get an idea of who are the best teams in the league. So I decided to look at the whole league and see where I think the teams fall.

1 Lakers

Is there any more they can prove? Winning at Boston in a playoff atmosphere, and following that up by being the first team this year to beat the Cavs at the Q. Impressive stuff, especially coming on the heels of losing Bynum. It remains to be seen if Lamar Odom will show up in big games consistently like he did vs Cleveland.

2 Cavs

Really expected more from King James in the hyped up showdown vs the Lakers. I guess they had to lose at home sometime. Right?

3 Celtics

Last time they lost to the Lakers, they followed it up with a 2-7 run that had everybody giving up on them. Since their latest loss to L.A. they’re 1-1, and staring a tough road trip in the face. Just sayin.

A Winning Attitude posted on 12/03/2008

Pacers 118 Lakers 117.

 Last night was certainly one of the most exciting nights to be a Pacers fan in the last few years, when the Pacers came from down 16 in the 4th quarter to stun the 14-1 Lakers at the buzzer. Considering the way 4th quarters have treated the Pacers all season this was especially rewarding.

Unfortunately, because of their inability to finish winnable games in the 4th quarter most of the season, that win put the Pacers at 7-10. And now 6 of their next 7 games are on the road, and their next three are against the defending champion Celtics, then LeBron and the Cavs, then Boston again. The two teams combined have 5 losses on the season.

I am definitely a glass-half-full type of guy and was jumping for joy after the victory against the Lakers, but seeing this brutal upcoming schedule is a little discouraging.
