IC Cold Links: Fever Win, NBA Labor Talks Upate And Tinsley Talks About Leaving Indy

Plenty of goodies in the links of a variety of topics.

-- First and foremost, big ups to the Indiana Fever for closing out the New York Liberty last night, 72-62 to advanced to the WNBA's Eastern Conference finals. Stars Tamika Catchings and Katie Douglas showed up big for the Fever. ECF Game 1 will be at Conseco Fieldhouse on Thursday against the Atlanta Dream.

-- Several Indiana Pacers are in town to workout together while the labor talks are expected to resume at some time this week. The owners appear staunch in their support for a hard salary cap but if both side agree to meet that can't be a bad thing. If they would only listen to Tim Donaue at 8.9 we could have the NBA playing games in no time.

-- Former Pacers PG, Jamaal Tinsley offered up some extensive comments (for Tins) to NBA.com's David Aldridge on his exit from Indy as he prepares for another playing opportunity in the NBA or elsewhere. Tins does a nice job of side-stepping any blame for how things soured with the Pacers, although brushing off the Conrad shooting incident as being blown out of proportion because Indy is a small city is comical. Similar things happen all the time in other big cities and go unreported? Yeah, right. In the 24/7 Internet news cycle with TMZ-style celebrity hawking, even the lowliest D-list celebrity would draw some attention if they were the target of a hail of bullets outside a 5-start hotel in New York or Los Angeles. Good luck with the comeback, though.

-- The Knox Indy Pro Am has released the rosters for "The Ball For It All Classic" at UIndy and also appears to have dropped the General Admission ticket prices to $27.

-- Oh, and Metta World Peace debuted on Dancing With The Stars, no doubt driving the TV producers nuts with his name change since they also used Ron Artest so people who don't follow his every move would know who the blond guy with the Hebrew letters carved in his head was for the opening show.
