All is quiet for the Indiana Pacers and the rest of the NBA outside the Miami HEAT explaining (or trying) what happened and the Dallas Mavericks celebrating their NBA championship. Couldn't be happier for Rick Carlisle, he did great things for the Pacers.
Not too much breaking news, but check out the links of the day after the jump. Things will start to pick up as the draft continues to get closer and especially now that the NBA finals are over. Should be an exciting week full of rumors, excitement, and complete misdirection!
