Yesterday the NBA announced the Pacers/Bulls game originally scheduled for December 26th has been rescheduled for February 4th. Here's the SI article with details: http://nba.si.com/2013/01/02/chicago-bulls-indiana-pacers-reschedule-game/?sct=uk_t2_a10.
Bad news for the Pacers because this creates a back-to-back-to-back. For the Bulls, it is not even create a back to back.
The Pacers will now play the following games, as a tough first week in February.
The Bulls schedule around this same time looks like this.
- Bulls@Nets on Feb 1
- Bulls@Hawks on Feb 2
- Bulls@Pacers on Feb 4
- Bulls@Denver on Feb 7
The only thing that would even out this schedule is if David Stern mandated the Bulls all conduct a mandatory 5 hour early morning practice on Feb 5 on skis upon the most treacherous slopes to be found anywhere in Colorado!
But seriously, I think this is a total SCREW JOB by David Stern and that the Pacers Front Office should file an official protest with the NBA League Office.
What do you think?
Leave it go, the Pacers should just lay down for this like David Stern's bitch and take it up the ass back-to-back-to-back!!! (13 votes)
The Pacers Front Office should stand up for their team and file a protest with the league office while proposing a better date for rescheduling this game, one which is fair to both teams. (37 votes)
