I'm not saying this Pacers team will win a championship, but Vegas predicting them to only win around 38 games seems crazy.

Bob - I’m certainly glad you are writing.

It’s so great to have Pacers coverage. I bought League Pass just to watch them from afar. My Athletic subscription is doomed! What a waste of money it’s become. If it wasn’t for Marcus Thompson II I’d have already left.

Please continue to keep tabs of the Pacers this season, Bob. There seems to be less and less good local journalism for our central Indiana teams.

I was a big Pacers fan in the 90’s and early 00’s. I moved away from Indiana and couldn’t follow as closely. And then the brawl. Could not stand Tinsley and Artest and the idiocy.

Couple that with kneeling and hating on the country that made them rich (because they hit the genetic lottery) and I fully checked out.

Fast forward 20 years and I now have a sports-obsessed 8 year old who likes the Warriors so I’m making him watch the Pacers with me and we bought the NBA package since we live in Ohio.

High hopes for a competitive season with good dudes we can rally behind.
