Carlisle Out: Rising from Rock Bottom?

Just returned from SF and obviously a lot has happened with the Pacers since my plane took off this morning.

As expected, Carlisle is out and the Pacers officially begin the arduous climb back to good times. Here is Larry Joe Legend's audio from the presser.

I believe the Pacers were at rock bottom from the last day of the season until today. The direction of the team has now changed. This is not to say the team will have a better record next year or fun times are right around the corner. But, I'm assuming there are more drastic changes ahead with an emphasis on young talent. Young promise is far more attractive than a poor playing collection of vets who appear stuck in the NBA's no man's land.

More to come after I get settled back at home.
