MIAMI, FL - MAY 22: Larry Bird, President of Basketball Operations for the Indiana Pacers looks on during Game Five of the Eastern Conference Semifinals in the 2012 NBA Playoffs against the Miami Heat at AmericanAirlines Arena on May 22, 2012 in Miami, Florida.

Indiana Pacers president Larry Bird will hold his annual port-mortem press conference following the Pacers exit from the playoffs last week. Unless he has his mind made up and is truly ready to move on, I don't expect Bird to address his future with the team other than to say the he and Herb Simon will sit down soon and talk about the future and what he's going to do.
Bird will talk about the past season and his thoughts on the team going forward which probably won't be as flowery as Frank Vogel's take on things yesterday. But really, the only question of interest for Bird is about his future with the team which must be answered soon, but probably not today. The press conference is at 11:00 a.m. ET and will be shown on Pacers.com.
