The Indiana Pacers used to be the pride of Indiana. They were some of my best childhood memories watchin' them with my father as a youngster in the 90's. Maybe that's why I'm a huge homer, and don't believe in being a bandwagon jumper. God knows I've been surrounded by enough Bulls and Patriot fans to make me puke. I always try to tow the line, even when I was really upset when they drafted Paul George, I calmed down and tried to look positive on it. Low and behold I am actually really excited about it now. Maybe that's the reason I have faith Rush and Hans will reach there potential. Overall, now that I have seen where we have been headed the last couple years, I am really excited, we have made some really good moves. We have a really well rounded team and with the addition of a couple key pieces and a good coach, this will be a team that can run wih anybody.
Now though it seems everyone has forgotten the great things this team has brought to this city. With the Brawl, the legal problems, the win// losses, and the Colts, I can understand fans frustrations, I've been as frustrated as anyone. There is no reason to flip out over infractions against guys like Rush though. (I'm not touching the stevenson's thing) We need to quit tryin to be like these beat writers, trying to tear down our team to sell some newspapers. Let's give these guys the benefit of the doubt and support our team. We have become some of the worst fans around and it is time we make our choice, are we gonna be true fans or are we gonna be Heat fans?
