The Indiana Pacers will return to business as usual as training camp resumes this week in Indianapolis. Fortunately, they made the most of their Asian trip along with the two games against the Denver Nuggets. The results were mixed, but plenty of playing combinations saw the floor in amped up gyms which helped raise the intensity. A far better setting to analyze play than the atmosphere at most preseason games.
Also, Conrad Brunner offered up some great video throughout the trip and his latest effort captured an extremely rare Bird sighting for all to enjoy. Larry Bird on a basketball court draining shots remains a thing of beauty.
Check out the video and a few other links of interest after the jump.
